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.
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.
