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?
The extra bed can be used for overnight guests or room sharing siblings. When desired, the bed can be separated into two beds again. If you choose and have the room, bunk beds even come in full sizes. This type of bed can serve the needs of your child for the entire time they are home. If the bed is going to last eighteen years or more, you will want to buy a good quality bunk bed as well as a good quality mattress.
