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.
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!
