A common question that we get asked is “What is the advantage of buying a bunk bed?”. In this article, we’ll highlight some of the biggest pros and cons of purchasing a bedroom for your child’s room.
If you’re looking into getting a bunk bed for your children’s shared bedroom, bunk beds are an excellent way to give them each a bit of personal space. With the addition of some curtains and clip-on lights, each of your children can have their own private space for activities like reading or simply having alone time. This setup is also perfect for when one child prefers to sleep with a night light and the other does not.
Another advantage of getting bunk beds for your child or children’s room is to save space. While a bedroom may not have ample room for two twin size beds on the floor, stacking them is a great way to create more space for other furniture like dressers and storage, as well as playtime space. So much room for activities!
Great For Storage
Not only do bunk beds free up storage space elsewhere in the bedroom, but many of our bunk bed frames even come with built in storage! For example, our Twin Manchester Bunk Bed has storage both under the bed and on the staircase! These make great spots to store extra bedding, toys, and can even replace a dresser!
Great for Guest Rooms
Bunk beds aren’t just for kids! Bunk beds are also an excellent and unique addition to any guest room! While bunk beds are usually used for children, most of them will comfortably fit adults. We even offer some bunk bed frames meant for full size mattresses like our Full Roma Espresso Bunk Bed With Stairs! Your home will be the place to be when your friends and family know that there’s plenty of sleeping space in your guest room!
Cons of Bunk Beds
While we believe the pros of purchasing a bunk bed greatly outweigh the cons, we’d be remiss not to let you know about some concerns we’ve heard about them in the past. Some parents worry about their child sleeping so far off the ground at night, however we aim to fix those fears by ensuring our bunk bed frames are made of the highest quality and always have safety railings on the top bunk. The other con of bunk beds is accessing the top bunk. While most children are perfectly comfortable climbing a ladder that is on traditional bunk beds, we also offer models that include stairs to solve this problem!
