Bunk beds are a great way to save space if you have two kids that need to share a room, or if you want to have a spare bed for guests or kids sleepovers. When choosing a bunk bed, here are a few things that you want to keep in mind:
- Some bunk beds can be separated into 2 single beds, which is a great option to have once your kids grow older and need some more space.
- Check if the ladder can be positioned on either side of the bed.
- Check the height of your ceiling, and where you intent to place the bed in your room, this way you will be sure it will fit properly in the bedroom. You might also want to check out L-shaped bunk beds and if you have 3 kids you can read about triple bunk beds.
- Also keep in mind that due to safety reasons the minimum age for the top bunk is 6 years old.
