Things to Consider – Space Available – Type of Bunk Bed – Decide on the Features – Safety Space available Bunk beds are perfect for small rooms which don’t have much space. Although they are also suitable for use in larger rooms. The actual bed won’t take up that much more space than a typical bed, but make sure you allow enough space to open drawers. Also check that the room will accommodate the height of the bunk bed. Type of Bunk Bed There are quite a few different bunk beds available. You can choose beds which have two beds, one above the other. Or you can choose a bunk bed which has storage or desk space underneath. By choosing the right type of bunk bed you can make the most of your room. Decide on the Features Bunk beds can have a number of different features. These can include extra storage space, work space and play areas. Children who like sleepovers will like the additional bed, you could choose a bunk bed which has a pull out bed or futon for an occasional bed. Although you will be buying the bed, consider talking to your child about it to make sure that you’re getting the perfect bed for their room. Safety Safety is a very important consideration when buying a bunk bed. Make sure that the bed has all of the required safety features to prevent your child from falling out of bed. These include foot boards, headboards and guardrails. Also make sure your child knows to be careful when climbing and using the bunk bed. Additional Resources: Looking for more fun beds?
