Although there is a difference in height, both bunk beds and a trundle bed have one upper bed and one lower bed. Can you and your children come to a reasonable acceptance of who will sleep on the top bed and who will sleep on the bottom? If you purchase either of these two types of beds for your children, you will obviously need to come to some sort of sleeping arrangements for them, and they will need to be comfortable with those arrangements. Show pictures of both kinds of beds to your children before you make any purchases, and see if you can all work together towards whatever sleeping arrangement works best for your family.
Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
