Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Both bunk beds and trundle beds have other space considerations. Can you accommodate the additional space needs of either of these two bedding options? Bunk beds will generally incorporate a ladder to the higher bunk on the end of the bunk bed structure. If not, there will be a ladder that comes out from the side of the bed. If a ladder is built into the bed frame, is there room for the child to climb the ladder? If the bed frame has a detached ladder which comes out from the side of the bed, do you have room for the ladder to slant out from the bed frame? On the opposite hand, a trundle bed needs enough room to be pulled out for use. Which extra space requirement works best with the room you have?
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.
