Children have a tendency to grow. Quickly. Will the perfect bed today still be able to fit a gangly preteen or strapping teenager? Many bunk beds offer full bunk bed designs as well as twins. By choosing a full-sized mattress, the bunk bed has a much greater chance of lasting through childhood. Bunk beds also come in different heights. As long as a bedroom's ceilings can accommodate it, buying the higher bunk bed will allow adults and teenagers to sit comfortably on the bottom bunk.
Many experts say that metal bunk beds are unsafe. This is because metal beds are not as sturdy and tend to wobble, dent and bend over the years due to weak joints. Essentially, a metal bunk bed may save you money but is not a good investment in the long run. Wood bunk beds are not without their problems. A good rule of thumb is the heavier the bed, the more likely it is to be sturdy and safe. Even with hardwood beds, screws and wing nuts can work loose over time. A properly designed bunk bed will have ample support braces to keep some of the pressure off of the bed's joints.
