Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
More and more Americans are choosing to stay in their own homes rather than risk entering the housing market right now. This means that families are turning to home improvements and space-saving techniques in order to make their homes more comfortable. Bunk beds and loft beds are perfect examples of how to save space in a child's room. Unfortunately, there are no universal standards for bunk beds and buyers should strive to make the most educated decision possible when choosing sleeping arrangements for their children.
