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?
Product Recalls. Although they rarely make big news, bunk beds and loft beds are not immune to product recalls. There have been instances when models have been recalled due to faulty workmanship, guardrail safety and potential for child entrapment. Most reputable dealers keep on top of bunk bed and loft bed recalls and remove those items from their inventory promptly. Still, as with all purchases, it is best to check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and do your homework before buying.
