A great combination of sleeping space and relaxation area, a futon bunk bed features a bed sitting on top of a futon sofa. Available in a whole range of colors and styles, a futon bunk bed is a perfect way to conserve space in your child`s bedroom, while at the same time providing them with their own unique and private living area. If you really want to give your child something special to sleep in, then you may want to take a close look at a futon bunk bed.
If you do decide to purchase a bunk bed for your child`s room, be sure you purchase one with safety features. At the minimum the bed should have a secure rail on the upper bunk and a stabilized ladder. Avoid beds with no rail or with a ladder that is simply propped up against the bed.
But there`s also good reasons why parents love bunk beds too. It`s quite possible to house 2 kids in one small bedroom if you use bunks for the kids, and it doesn`t take up any more space than one single bed. So if you`ve got more kids than bedrooms buy a bunk bed instead of a new house, it`s way cheaper. And the kids will love it too, rather than complain as they would if you tried to squeeze a second bed into a small bedroom.
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!
