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?
If you feel uncomfortable that there will always be fighting over the top bunk or over the bottom bunk, first reconsider if there is a need to look at another kind of bed, or consider if you need to wait on your purchase until you can come to an acceptable arrangement that works for everyone. Sometimes the idea of having to wait will help children be creative in solving whatever problems they may be dealing with, helping everyone to come to a good decision everyone can live with.
