If you have two kids living in a small bedroom, getting a bunk bed is a great idea. It saves space, giving your kids more room to play and makes room for other important furniture pieces like a desk, wardrobe, etc. When shopping for a bunk bed, you’ll notice that they are either wooden or metal.
However, it is possible to find an upholstered bunk beds, which will add a touch of sophisication and style to any bedroom. They are padded and upholstered in fabric, so they are more comfortable for your kids compared to a wooden or metal bunk bed. There are very few upholstered bunk beds sold, however we’ve found the best ones that are sold online and featured them in this article.
Here are some tips when choosing an upholstered bunk bed:
- Generally, upholstered bunk beds can’t be separated into two single beds – but we’ve found one that can be separated – check out number 5 on this list! With wooden bunk beds, a lot of them can be separated into two single beds, giving you more flexibility on using it in the future.
- All upholstered bunk beds fit a single mattress size, there are no upholstered triple bunk beds or L-shaped bunk beds.
- The top bunk should not be used by kids who are 6 years or younger, due to safety reasons. Only once your child reaches 6 years old, you can move him/her to the top bunk.
