decision possible when choosing sleeping arrangements for their children. For families trying to conserve space, bunk beds and loft beds provide the perfect solution. When used in children's rooms, they provide more space for other activities and toys. Siblings can share a bedroom or friends have a permanent sleepover solution using bunk beds. Loft beds work best for a single child stuck in a small room. By including desks, drawers, cabinets and trundles into the bed design; a loft bed can essentially eliminate all other furniture from the room!
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?
