Bedding / February 6, 2019 / Amie Thibault.
When people choose various beds, it is important to consider some of the things that would make it a very comfortable buy. Perhaps it is best to consider the size of the bed frame in order to decide on the mattress size that is to be purchased. Whatever the case, consider the size of the person sleeping on the bed and the comfort that is to be experienced.
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.
Storage beds don't have large box springs or other heavy objects so it is easier to pullup. Small stills on the back end of the storage bed pulls out, allowing it to rest easily on the floor. Storage beds are great for storing seasonal items under the bed to help save space and keep your room from becoming cluttered. However, if you have a wood floor you might want to place a space rug in the area so when it is folded out it does not scratch the floor, do to the movement of the stilts.
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.
