Storage beds don't have large box springs or other heavy objects so it is easier to pullup. Small stills on the back end of the storage bed pulls out, allowing it to rest easily on the floor. Storage beds are great for storing seasonal items under the bed to help save space and keep your room from becoming cluttered. However, if you have a wood floor you might want to place a space rug in the area so when it is folded out it does not scratch the floor, do to the movement of the stilts.
Wall beds, also known as Murphy wall beds are cut into a wall and are able to fold up into the wall when not in use. These beds can range from double sized beds to full king sized beds. There really is no limit to the size of bed you are able to have installed into a wall, although the wall does need to be thick enough to have a section of it removed, otherwise it is not possible to have the bed folded up into it.
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.
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.
