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.
Hidden beds are pushed up into a wall so that when it is up you don't even realize the bed is there. Usually you aren't going to have something in front of the bed when it is folded up so you can easily pull it down, although it is possible to still have light objects in front of the bed so it can be easily moved out of the way so you don't have to move much out of the way to access the wall beds.
