Choosing the bunk bed type with a perpendicular lower bed allows space for a desk to be placed under the upper bed as well. As an added benefit, as your child ages and grows out of the bunk bed phase, many can be separated into two separate twin beds.
Be sure to choose any type of Bunk Bed with the top bunk completely surrounded by sturdy double rails to prevent accidents. Many Bunk Bed Futons come in unfinished pine so there is no gorgeous finished wood surface for the little play hammer to ruin.
With many standard bunk beds, you have the advantage of using the bunk bed as a twin bunk (that is, using both beds) while kids are little and are sharing a room, but later as a loft bed for one child. When kids get older and move to separate rooms, the bunk bed can be converted to a loft bed for one! All you do is remove the base of the lower bunk, turn the back rail toward the wall, re-attach it to the sides, and voila! -- A loft bed!
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.
