The design of the classic bunk bed has more or less stayed the same over the years, which is a testament to the ingenuity of the original idea. It`s difficult to improve a perfect design and the simple idea of having two individual bed frames which can be stacked to save space is one which remains as popular today as it has always done.
Solid wooden and metal bunk beds are the most versatile, not only will they last forever but can also be given a new lease of life by simply re-painting or varnishing and by purchasing new mattresses. Another benefit is that they can be sold-on or passed down to other family members when your children have out grown them.
For little ones, don`t forget mattress protectors so little incidents don`t become big incidents. Mattress protectors protect your mattresses from bedwetting issues by providing a moisture-proof barrier over the mattress. They also provide allergy protection with a barrier that dust mites and other bugs cannot penetrate if they`re already in the mattress. Mattress protectors are easily laundered and replaced on the bed.
So now you know that a futon bunk bed is two beds, the bottom being a futon. The standard bunk bed has two twin beds -- above and below. And the loft bed has one bed above and an open space below.
