Triple Bunk Bed

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds can be a fun addition to any child’s room. They are practical for dorm rooms, or roommates just trying to save space in a small apartment.

There are so many different styles and sizes to consider when buying bunk beds. One also needs to consider who they are buying the bunk bed for.

For example, if one is buying a bunk bed for a children's room, then one needs to think about safety.

If it's more for a dorm room one might want to take the size of the bunk bed into consideration. 


Nowadays, there are many styles of bunk beds to choose from. Not too long ago when one thought of a bunk bed one would think of two twin beds, one on top and one on the bottom. Though one can still find bunk beds like this, there are many more styles to choose from.

Lets see, there is the bed with a twin bed on top and a full size bed on the bottom. One may use this if one has more than two children sharing a room. Two kids can sleep on the bottom and one on top. Or, this kind of bed would be good for sleepovers.

Speaking of sleepovers, another good bunk bed for this is a pull out bed on the bottom. There is a twin bed on top and a twin bed on the bottom, but there is a surprise bed that slides out from under the bottom bunk.

If there is a teenager in one's life, or if one is looking for a good bunk bed for a dorm room, there is a perfect one that saves on space. There is only one twin bed on the top. The bottom is a desk where a teenager or college student could place their computer necessities or stereo needs.

Another style of bed perfect for a dorm room is the futon bunk bed. It has a twin bed on top and a futon on the bottom that can pull out into a bed for extra people. Of course, there is also the previously discussed triple bunk bed.

Whatever the reason for a bunk bed purchase, safety has to be the number one concern. Children under the age of 6 should not be sleeping in the top bunk, or even crawling to the top bunk. Be sure the bunk bed has a safe ladder for climbing.

Some bunk beds come with actual stairs built in, which is safer. Of course, on any bunk bed for any reason, be sure there are rails on the top bunk so no one falls out. Bunk beds can be fun and practical for any space. They are easy enough to find and check out.

There is no doubt there is a bunk bed out there for one's purpose. Have fun looking at the different styles and sizes that are available. Just remember, safety first!
