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.
Wall beds, also known as Murphy wall beds are cut into a wall and are able to fold up into the wall when not in use. These beds can range from double sized beds to full king sized beds. There really is no limit to the size of bed you are able to have installed into a wall, although the wall does need to be thick enough to have a section of it removed, otherwise it is not possible to have the bed folded up into it.
