If you don’t have enough space in your kid’s bedroom, then one solution to this problem is to get your kids a bunk bed. This means that two kids will have their own sleeping space, while the bed only takes up room of one bed. Kids also love to sleep on a bunk bed, especially when they are young, as well as to climb up and play there during the day.
However, when your kids grow older the might want to sleep in their own separate room or might just prefer to sleep in a normal bed. In this case, it’s best to get your children a detachable bunk bed, which can be separated into two single beds. Giving you flexibility on how you can use the bed during the years.
How to choose a detachable bunk bed?
The first thing you should double check is that the bunk bed can be separated into two, this should be specified in the product description. You should also check the dimensions of the bed, in order to be sure that it will fit well into the space you have at home. Also, check on which side the ladder can be placed. Another point to consider is what colour you want to buy, most of the beds are available in white or grey, but you can also find some in espresso, cherry, or other colour options. Keep in mind that only kids older than 6 years, should sleep on the top bunk, due to safety reasons.
Now lets have a look at some the best detachable bunk beds, you can find online!
