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.
Parents use futon bunk beds so two children can share a bedroom more easily than separate twin beds allow. The upper bunk is usually for the older child.
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!
Classic, simple and easy to maintain, bunk beds in natural maple are a great way to give any bedroom a naturally rustic feel to it. Additionally, the very nature of bunk beds indicate that they`ll endure rougher and tougher treatment versus conventional beds.
