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.
Futon bunk beds give kids a sense of adventure. Kids use them for sleepovers when little friends stay the night. With sleeping space to accommodate three small people (twin above, double below), it is easy to accommodate small guests.
Futon Bunk Bed a combination of a futon (also referred to as a sofa bed convertible) with a regular twin size bed stacked on top of it. The top bed is most of the time used as a primary sleeping area, while the Western style futon sofa below serves as a leisure place, but can also be turned into a full size bed if needed.
However there is one thing you need to think about. Bunks can be dangerous for kids, particularly young kids, if you don`t take precautions. Kids can hurt themselves in falls from the top bunk, and so you need to make sure you get child friendly bunks. Make sure the top bunk has good railings to prevent falls, don`t buy bunks with no railings on the top. And make sure they have good solid stairs.
