Tips on how to choose the ideal bunk model
The main reason for bringing a bunk into the room is by its functionality. The mobile manages to serve two people in space who would be destined for just one. And it is precisely for this reason that the function of the bunk ends up emphasizing the aesthetic question and, often, to the personal taste of the residents, after all it has no other way, does it?
But if functionality is the starting point for choosing the bunk then do not lose sight of it. It will not do any good to opt for the mobile if it does not fit perfectly in space or get in the way.
Before buying, check all the measurements - the bedroom and the bed - and whether it will indeed be the best choice for the environment. In homes with very low ceilings, the bunk bed can become a problem.
And if functionality is so important, the more the bunk has to offer, the better. Choose models with built-in drawers or even ones that are inlaid with wardrobe. That way you can save even more space in the room.
The safety of the bunk is something extremely important, after all are two children sharing the same furniture. So the first tip is: do not put children under five to sleep on the top bed. She may suffer falls when going up and down the furniture, not to mention that during sleep there are also risks of falling on the floor.
And even if the child is bigger, it is recommended to use guardrails on the side of the bunk, especially at the top. This prevents the child from falling into a more hectic day of sleep.
Attention also to the luminaires. They should not lie directly on the bed, since proximity to the ceiling can cause the child to touch wires or the lamp itself.
The access ladder to the bunk bed should be secure, firm and non-slip. Also beware of bunk beds near the window, in this case it is very important to install a protective screen.
Finally, check periodically if the bunk structure is firm, if you notice that the bed is swinging or without balance, arrange for maintenance.
For each age, a different bunk bed
Children's needs change according to age and this would not be different when it comes to bunk beds. We have already said in the previous topic about the need to protect the sides of the bed depending on the age of the child.
But the style of the bunk should also be according to age. More playful bunks are ideal for younger children, and the older ones can count on a bunk model with study area, such as a desk, and a place designed for reading with lampshade or directed lighting, for example.
3. Beauty also counts
Finally, also consider the aesthetic part of the bunk. A child who is a child is attracted by the visual of everything that surrounds it, and surely a bunk with colors and characters of choice will be much more interesting to her, as well as acting as a stimulus for the child to use the bedroom and sleep in the own bed.
1. Wooden bunk bed

2. Metal bunk bed

3. Bunk bed with writing desk
The bunk beds with desk optimize the space of the room even more and are very suitable for the older children who need a bench for studies and other activities.
4. Bunk bed with bunk bed

Playful bunks are preferred by children. And there are no shortage of options. It has a bunk in the shape of a small house, with the style of a castle and even an Indian bed. Other models include slide, rope ladder and even climbing wall. It's all fun.

Another option is the bunk beds. In this case, the freedom to create the furniture according to the needs and taste of the child increases considerably. And one of the possibilities is to integrate the bunk to the wardrobe making the furniture a unique piece capable of integrating beauty, organization and practicality.
7. Bunk bed in L
The L-berth is the one where the top bed is in the horizontal position and the bottom bed is upright. The vacant space at the bottom is usually used for a desk, but can also serve as a play area or simply a point of respite in the room.
Too many options is not it? But the best way to define which bunk bed to buy is by analyzing the child's needs and what she really likes. It is possible to join a playful proposal with a study area in the same bunk, for example, especially if the children who divide the room have very different ages.
