The term ‘bunk bed’ does not necessarily mean having two beds; it just means that the sleeping area is raised from the ground by a significant height. This height allows designers to create a fantasy world for your kids.
If you are looking to buy a bunk bed, the chances are that it is not for you to sleep on (unless you are a college student, for instance). It will probably be for your child. It is therefore important to weigh up the cost.
Bunk beds are potentially the most dangerous beds because of their height and the cheaper the bunk bed is, perhaps more likely it’ll give you problems, specially a few years down the line of its purchase.
It is unlikely that you will be able to find a strong bunk bed for less than $200, whilst we the bargains out there in which a good quality bed can be purchased for this little money, cannot be denied, however, we believe that some extra money spent that would generate a lot of comfort for your child could be really worthwhile.
But, if you have a small budget, you might find better value for money by looking for a metal bunk bed rather than the one made from wood. As a general rule, metal bunk beds are available at the same price as a wooden bunk bed especially at the end of the market season, which also increases its chances of a better quality.
One very good tip would be to buy a good quality bunk bed or loft beds for children which can be separated into two twin beds. This means that if you have two children who are sharing one single room, they can easily move into their own room, if need be.
These days, there are many beds of this type available, although they are more expensive than traditional beds. Often these are bunk beds! Most bunk beds of this style include a play area underneath the bed, and often an imaginative way of getting down from the top bunk. Most commonly this is a slide, so you will need to make sure that the room the bed is to be placed in is big enough for this slide not to be a hazard, both in terms of your child sliding down it and tripping over it at other times.
