And while bunk beds are practical, let`s face it - sleeping in a bunk bed with a friend is one of the true joys that a child can experience. From calling out who`s got the top bunk to climbing up the ladder to telling stories to imaging your bunk bed is anything you want it to be, bunk beds, for many children and their families, are gathering spots and places to create fun and long-lasting memories.
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!
If that`s the case, you`re in luck, because there are many different types of bunk beds out there for you to choose from. Here are just a few of the styles and types of bunk beds that you can purchase.
On the other hand, if space is limited and there are storage issues present, placing a drawer chest underneath the bed will probably come as a higher priority. For school age children a study desk may be the most pressing need, or perhaps some sort of storage/study combination -- many manufacturers offer integrated solutions designed specifically for just such situations.
