Standard bunk beds have the traditional format -- one twin size bed above and one twin size bed below. Each family has its own needs to satisfy, so there`s something for everyone! Nothing folds out; both beds are fixed twin beds.
This said, although the basic concept has stayed the same, the range of colours, materials and design details has altered quite a lot over the last few years. Gone are the days when bunk beds were plain pine or tubular metal, they are now available in a variety of materials and colour options to suit most schemes and budgets.
As of late, however, many parents choose these larger beds even if their children are still too small to actually need them; the reasoning is, the extra space provides more comfort regardless of the child`s size, and there is no need to worry the kids will outgrow this piece of furniture: if sturdy enough, a full over full bunk bed will see them through teenage years and beyond.
Parents who like to snuggle in with their children for some reading before bed time will likewise appreciate the extra space. The additional width also improves the stability of the structure, which is another positive.
