Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
The extra bed can be used for overnight guests or room sharing siblings. When desired, the bed can be separated into two beds again. If you choose and have the room, bunk beds even come in full sizes. This type of bed can serve the needs of your child for the entire time they are home. If the bed is going to last eighteen years or more, you will want to buy a good quality bunk bed as well as a good quality mattress.
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.
