If you feel uncomfortable that there will always be fighting over the top bunk or over the bottom bunk, first reconsider if there is a need to look at another kind of bed, or consider if you need to wait on your purchase until you can come to an acceptable arrangement that works for everyone. Sometimes the idea of having to wait will help children be creative in solving whatever problems they may be dealing with, helping everyone to come to a good decision everyone can live with.
Here is something to ponder. Can a two-year old, a twelve-year old, and an eighteen year old all sleep in the same type of bed? Of course if you do it right. A twin size bunk bed or loft bed makes so much sense for a young family. You can separate the bunk beds at first for the two-year old and use just the mattress on the floor for a while. Then, use just the single twin size bed alone for the preschool years. Use portable side rails if necessary. When your child is old enough to sleep in a bunk bed (age six for the top), you can make the twin size bunk bed into bunks.
