A bunk bed is a bed where one bed frame is stacked on top of another bed frame. There are many types of bunk beds with the bunk bed twin being one of them. When buying bunk beds, there are some things you need to consider to ensure that you get the right one for your house and kids. Before we delve into that let’s look at why you should use a bunk bed
Why you should use bunk bed
- Saves space
A bunk bed helps save space. Normally a bunk bed will be two beds taking up the space of one. A bunk bed twin would work well in a small room where space is a bit of a problem.
This is the case when you have kids that are hard to put to sleep. As a parent having a bed of this kind will allow you to get to your kid that needs attention without waking up the other kid.
- They can be converted to separate beds
This depends on the bunk bed that you get as some can easily be detached and each could be a separate bed. This is a great option for the future when you want your kids to have individual rooms.
What to consider before buying one
- The storage space
If you’re are limited on space, then this is an awesome option to consider. There are some bunk bed twins that offer storage space. You could use this to store your kid’s clothes/ toys. If you have issues with space, then you can consider one with a storage space. This is because you wouldn’t need to buy a dresser thus saving space.
- The space between the beds
Remember that there’ll be someone laying on the bottom part of the bed, so consider their height and whether the space between the beds suits them. You want the person at the bottom to be just as comfortable as the one at the top. Ensure that there is enough space between the two beds.
- Height of the bunk bed
This is a factor to consider for kids. How tall is the bunk bed twin? How close is it to the roof? Is there a fan on the roof? These are just some of the few things you need to consider to ensure that your child can sleep safely at the top of the bunk bed with no worries of injuries at all.
