Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
Bunk beds these days come in a myriad of shapes, styles and designs -- it is worth taking a few moments to get familiarized with a few basic configurations and their common uses before beginning to research the market.
There is one major flaw in the concept of most bunks. They are simply unsafe. Children either fall or jump from the top bunk causing all manner of injuries. Broken bones and scrapes and bruises can be the least of it.
Provide a table surface below and younger kids now have a play space in an otherwise small room (Let`s face it! They get the smallest room in the house). They can park their train set, doll house, Legos, or construct any other make-believe world without having to disassemble it each night. Better yet, parents don`t have to step on all those little pieces previously on the floor!
