Yet another kind of bed is frequently termed as a loft bed. Here there is only one top bunk and directly below you have a space that you can use for various functions. Most commonly this extra space down below can be used for a study space having a work desk and a chair - great for homework! Another idea for use will be to make storage space or just enough room to get an easy chair as a place to relax -- ideal for a young adult within a cramped room. In this case the bedroom would be only for one individual and by fitting a loft bed it is possible to make a more valuable room space. Space is often the primary reason for fitting any type of bunks in a bedroom.
There are several bed designs which have evolved from the initial concept of a traditional bunk. Captain's beds and mid-sleepers are just two examples. By incorporating other furniture pieces within the design the space savings can be considerable. Some mid-sleepers will include wardrobe space, shelving and even a study desk - when you consider how much space these individual items of children's furniture would take-up the benefits are obvious, not to mention the cost savings.
Whatever kind of bunk bed you opt to buy it's important to take your time and consider all of the options. Try not to be persuaded by price alone; often the difference between a poor quality bed and a good one is only a few pounds extra and will be more than paid back over the many years of functional use your children will benefit from it.
Theme bunk beds are also known by the good quality of the mattresses and also the excellence of the elements for the bed frames. These beds can be found in various types of metal and wood, plus they can be found in different sizes. These beds come in numerous wooden finishes and also colors such as black, antique, blue cherry, chocolate and so on. Bunks for kids are a great idea even if you have only one child because whether you know it or not your child will have friends and will want those friends to sleep over. Bunks for kids are versatile in use and offer additional sleeping or seating room.
I recently spoke to a friend who was just having their third child. They told me that they were stressed out as they were looking for a bigger house, but they couldn't afford to move to a larger scale house. When I listened to their predicament I couldn't help but think that the answer was simple. With children's bunk beds there would be no issue.
If you have the space, then full over full is best because each child has more room, and sleepovers are easier to organize. In fact, a twin over full takes up much the same room as a full over full, and the Classics 4.0 version of the latter comes at 84" long, by 60" deep and 79" high. This is part of Universal's Smartstuff Youth collection, and is available in white or saddle brown wood. Optional underbed storage units are also available.
But it still seemed like a very good solution to an issue that shouldn't really have existed. Apart from the bedroom situation the house was plenty big enough for the number of occupants that occupied it. So when I suggested the children's bunk beds idea it was almost as if a weight had been lifted off of their shoulders. They were slightly skeptical about the idea initially because like most families these days they assume that everyone should have their own bedroom. The actual fact of the matter is that the way housing prices are going up and with the state of new build houses it is very likely that there will be more bedroom sharing over the coming years.
