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?
Keeping the design simple and classic also goes a long way towards the longevity of a bunk bed set. The adorable dollhouse design might be perfect for a five-year-old girl now, but will she still find it adorable as a teen? Choosing a bunk bed with a simpler design will allow the child to customize her room as she sees fit without changing the bed!
