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.
Longevity. With so many bunk bed and loft bed design options from which to choose, it is not hard to narrow in on a few winners. Most families are making this investment with the hopes the bed will last many years, so it is important to consider the bunk bed's functionality before finalizing the purchase.
