10 Bunk Beds for Kids That They Will Love

Shopping around for some Bunk Beds for Kids? Bunk beds are coming back into fashion – and it’s good to see!

The Advantages of Bunk Beds

The main advantage of having bunk beds in the kid’s room is SPACE. Bunk beds make sense space-wise on so many levels. Plus with housing affordability at the scariest, we have seen it in decades, many parents can’t afford for the kids to have a room of their own. Bunk beds give shared rooms more ‘living space’. And kids really do love them.

Why Choose Bunk Beds?

Sleepovers Are Made Easier With Bunk Beds

Even if you only need a bed for one child, you should keep in mind that the moment will come when your child will want to have a sleepover with friends. Bunk beds eliminate the need for an extra bed or for giving up your spotless guest bedroom.

Bunk Beds Provide Separate Space for Siblings

Having to share a bedroom with a sibling can be a topic of concern, which is why it’s crucial to maintain your solitude and identity as much as possible. Because they can’t see one other from their bunk beds, children feel that they have their own personal area to relax. Make it feel more like their space by letting them pick out their own bedding and toys.

Storage space pockets in certain bunk beds allow your children to safely store small toys and other loose items out of reach.  Most of the time, it is the little things that make your children’s rooms look cluttered. Having a place to safely store their belongings can go a long way toward helping them maintain a neat living space. This will serve as an additional incentive for them and ensure that their favourite possessions are kept safe.

Disadvantages of Bunk Beds

Injuries. Kids fooling and falling off the top bunk and breaking an arm or a wrist. Ensure that you only use bunk beds for kids over the age of 6 years. Plus ensure you position a bunk bed so it isn’t right under a ceiling fan and you use the recommended mattress size for the bunk bed.

Enforce the following rules for bunk beds:

  • No playing on or under the bed
  • Only one child on the top bunk at any one time

Luckily modern bunk beds come with guardrails on both sides of the top bunk. The back guardrail is prevent children from rolling off the bunk and getting stuck between the bunk bed and the wall. The front guardrail is to stop them from rolling off the bed into the room. A ladder is usually attached to the front guardrail.

A night light in the bedroom is recommended to make any nighttime trips to the toilet safe for the child on the top bunk.

So, There You Go!

We’ve covered the practical reasons to acquire bunk beds for your kids. Bunkies are a ton of fun for the little ones and the majority of kids will go crazy about them.

It doesn’t matter if they’ve bagged the top bunk or the bottom bunk; they’ll like having their own cozy sleeping quarters and having more area to run around in the rest of their room. Bunk beds allow kids to express themselves in a variety of creative ways. What about installing separate switch-operated clip-on lamps? Or, how about choosing bunk beds with individual storage areas for each child? Because it is their place, you should let them make decisions about what they want to do with it. Enjoy!
