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.
How to choose a fabric bunk bed?
- Generally, upholstered bunk beds can’t be separated into two single beds. With wooden bunk beds, a lot of them can be detached into two single beds, giving you more flexibility on using it in the future. You won’t be able to find an upholstered L-shaped bunk beds.
- All upholstered bunk beds have low height, and fit two single size mattresses. Since they are lower to the ground, this makes them safer for toddlers and young kids to sleep on the lower bunk.
- 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.
- Check if the item comes with a warranty and how long it is (1 or 5 years). Also, since this is large furniture item, some retailers have a shipping charge. Double check beforehand if there is any delivery fee and how much it is.
