Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Both bunk beds and trundle beds have other space considerations. Can you accommodate the additional space needs of either of these two bedding options? Bunk beds will generally incorporate a ladder to the higher bunk on the end of the bunk bed structure. If not, there will be a ladder that comes out from the side of the bed. If a ladder is built into the bed frame, is there room for the child to climb the ladder? If the bed frame has a detached ladder which comes out from the side of the bed, do you have room for the ladder to slant out from the bed frame? On the opposite hand, a trundle bed needs enough room to be pulled out for use. Which extra space requirement works best with the room you have?
Providing you have a child old enough to sleep on the top bunk, is your child able then to climb the ladder to the top bunk? Bunk bed ladders have their own kind of feeling when climbing up and climbing down. Check out ladders in furniture stores first if you are considering a bunk bed purchase, and if your child does not feel comfortable with the feel of the ladders, put more consideration into a trundle bed or other bedding option.
