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.
While it is true that bunk bed and loft bed designs typically follow a standard pattern, there are ways to customize them. Many companies offer a variety of wood finishes and some even offer themed options like camouflage tents and princess castles. Purchasing a bunk bed or loft bed is an investment. In order to protect this investment, families should consider these things before purchasing.
