Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
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.
Providing you have a child old enough to sleep on the top bunk, is your child able then to climb the ladder to the top bunk? Bunk bed ladders have their own kind of feeling when climbing up and climbing down. Check out ladders in furniture stores first if you are considering a bunk bed purchase, and if your child does not feel comfortable with the feel of the ladders, put more consideration into a trundle bed or other bedding option.
