Sharing a room can be fun
A shared sibling room is the most popular reason for choosing bunk beds. Siblings sharing a room can be tricky, but bunk beds can help. Instead of dreading sharing a room, bunk beds can make kids excited about their new room.
Plus, bunk beds are incredible space savers. Stacking two beds in one footprint opens up the rest of the room for more storage or play area. Place bunk beds along one wall, leaving room for a set of matching kids' dressers
or desks. Designing a fun kids' room is instantly made easier by adding some cool bunk beds into the mix.
An easy vacation home solution
Are you furnishing a vacation home, lake house or cabin? Consider adding bunk beds to your list of necessities. Bunk beds are a great solution for any home where you're expecting to host guests.
By selecting a twin-over-full bunk bed or trundle pull-out option, your guest room will always be at the ready. This is a great way to make limited space functional and versatile. To top it off, a classic white bunk bed always looks great with coastal decor in a vacation home!
Bunk bed safety
When picking out a bunk bed, think safety first. Measure your ceiling to ensure that there will be enough space to sit up in the top bunk. It's especially important to make sure the top bunk is clear of ceiling fans and light fixtures. Make sure kids are big enough to get in and out of the top bunk safely by themselves, or make a rule that little kids may only use the bottom bunk.
Finally, always use the mattress size recommended by the manufacturer with your bunk bed. Using a mattress that's too thick could result in the mattress being taller than the guardrails, creating a fall risk for anyone sleeping on the top bunk. Keeping these safety concerns in mind while bunk bed shopping will ensure children and others won't have any issues sleeping in a great new bunk bed!
Choose the right bunk bed size
With many different bunk bed options, it's easy to find the perfect setup for your home. Twin bunk beds are the most common size, but at Raymour & Flanigan, you can choose from twin-over-twin, full-over-full, and twin-over-full bunk beds. You can also customize your bunk beds by looking for a set with a trundle bed or bunk beds with drawers under the bottom bunk. If you're not a fan of ladders, some bunk beds have a built-in staircase to make getting to the top bunk even easier.
Raymour & Flanigan has bunk beds available in a variety of finishes and styles to fit any decor. Our bunk beds will look just as great in an elegant guest room as they will in a whimsical kid's room. With all of the great space-saving features this piece can add to a room, the only question left now is: who gets the top bunk?
