If you are looking at making a decision between bunk beds or a trundle bed, chances are you have children. Chances are also that you are a person who either needs to consider space or who wants to make the most use out of the space you have. Both options are great options for children's bedroom furniture, and either decision would clear floor space for other kids bedroom furniture, toy storage, or a play space.
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.
