Why Are Bunk Beds Such A Family Friendly Bedding Solution?

Sep 5, 2008
There's no doubt that kids love bunk beds. They're lots of fun for kids, and there's a stack of good reasons why you should think about buying some bunk beds for your kids.

Why do kids love bunks? Because bunks are fun. It's quite possible to turn your bed into just about anything that you want to. Maybe your bed is a pirate ship, maybe a princess' castle? There's so many things that a child can do with a bunk bed that they can't do with a regular bed.

Hang a sheet from the top bunk and you've got a hideaway, or a house, or a dungeon.

And it's sociable. Kids love to sleep near each other. It gives them a sense of familiarity, and it gives them comfort when it's dark, or windy, or raining.

But there's also good reasons why parents love bunk beds too. It's quite possible to house 2 kids in one small bedroom if you use bunks for the kids, and it doesn't take up any more space than one single bed. So if you've got more kids than bedrooms buy a bunk bed instead of a new house, it's way cheaper. And the kids will love it too, rather than complain as they would if you tried to squeeze a second bed into a small bedroom.

And if you're thinking of buying a house, but it's pretty expensive, then you could buy a smaller house, or an apartment, and put 2 kids in one bedroom if you use bunks to do it. The kids are happy, you've bought a house that you might not have been able to afford otherwise.

That's because bunk beds use up space very efficiently. They take up vertical space, whereas a regular bed takes up floor space. And it's one of the few ways you can use up vertical space in a bedroom.

And bunks look great. Bunks are a piece of furniture, whereas regular beds are just a platform to hold up a mattress. Bunks are made of timber, and have lots of different colors. And designs. And looks, and feels. Bunks can come in so many different shapes and sizes and colors whereas regular beds are - well - regular. And boring.

Why not have a set of good storage drawers under the beds, or have offset bunks so that they fit in a corner? There's so many options.

However there is one thing you need to think about. Bunks can be dangerous for kids, particularly young kids, if you don't take precautions. Kids can hurt themselves in falls from the top bunk, and so you need to make sure you get child friendly bunks. Make sure the top bunk has good railings to prevent falls, don't buy bunks with no railings on the top. And make sure they have good solid stairs.

And don't get bunks with corner posts that stick up above the railing, kids can catch things on them and fall, or hang off them, which isn't great.

Bearing that in mind, bunk beds are a great option for kids beds, in so many different situations. They offer options that regular beds don't, both for saving space and for making good use of space. Kids love them and they look good. And they're functional.

And if you shop for your bunkbeds online you'll be pleasantly surprised by the prices you can find. There are some very good quality cheap bunk beds around in places you wouldn't have thought of.

It's the same as with so many products now. Low overheads mean that sellers can sell cheaply online, and still make a profit. So if you're looking for cheap bunk beds do so online, you'll be surprised at how cheap those bunk beds can be.
