Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Children have a tendency to grow. Quickly. Will the perfect bed today still be able to fit a gangly preteen or strapping teenager? Many bunk beds offer full bunk bed designs as well as twins. By choosing a full-sized mattress, the bunk bed has a much greater chance of lasting through childhood. Bunk beds also come in different heights. As long as a bedroom's ceilings can accommodate it, buying the higher bunk bed will allow adults and teenagers to sit comfortably on the bottom bunk.
Although there is a difference in height, both bunk beds and a trundle bed have one upper bed and one lower bed. Can you and your children come to a reasonable acceptance of who will sleep on the top bed and who will sleep on the bottom? If you purchase either of these two types of beds for your children, you will obviously need to come to some sort of sleeping arrangements for them, and they will need to be comfortable with those arrangements. Show pictures of both kinds of beds to your children before you make any purchases, and see if you can all work together towards whatever sleeping arrangement works best for your family.
