Method of Construction. Kids abuse their furniture. They jump on it, jump off of it, hang from it and generally test all furniture to its limits. A bunk bed purchased for a kid's room will have to be able to withstand a great deal! Taking time to consider the method of construction of the bunk bed can ensure the bed will continue to provide a safe place to sleep - even after months of abuse.
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.
