Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
Keeping the design simple and classic also goes a long way towards the longevity of a bunk bed set. The adorable dollhouse design might be perfect for a five-year-old girl now, but will she still find it adorable as a teen? Choosing a bunk bed with a simpler design will allow the child to customize her room as she sees fit without changing the bed!
