Practical and highly efficient, bunk beds are the most effective space saving solutions for a small room. Able to accommodate two people at large they are widely used in children’s rooms where two kids share a room. However, you can also keep it in the guests’ room for those staying overnight. Now unlike any other types, purchasing a bunk bed can turn out to be real hard if you do not take a few factors into consideration. So take a sneak peek at them!
How much space is available?
The first thing you must do is measure the floor area that you want the bed to cover as well as its height from the ceiling. Plus, you should also make sure that the bed does not take up too much of the floor space, making it difficult for people to move about the room. If you are purchasing for your children, it is most important to ensure that it leaves at least 2 to 3 feet of space.
Which style to choose?
The choice of your bed style depends solely on your taste and requirements as each has its own benefits. Here’s a look at some of them-
Twin on twin
When it comes to choosing a bunk bed, this style has been mostly preferred as it allows two people to sleep comfortably. In fact you can also sit upright on the lower bed without bumping your head. Though some beds allow turning lower bed perpendicular to the upper one, this takes up lots of space.
Twin on full
This style comes with a queen or full sized bed on the bottom and a twin bed on top. This appears to be a great choice for an older kid who requires a large bed but can also be used by guests who are coming to stay overnight.
Retailers, looking for Contemporary Furniture Wholesale, can also purchase these beds from their wholesale supplier and place their order in bulk.
Twin on futon
Twin on futon beds make for perfect space saving solutions since they can be folded into couch when they are not used as beds. You can either keep one in your bedroom or living room, they will provide great opportunity to read or watch television once you fold it up.
Which material to use?
The material of the beds plays an important role to keep the beds strong and sturdy even after a few decades. Though different types of high quality wood such as teak, oak, and maple amongst others are generally used, you can also keep your eyes on those made of durable wrought iron. So no matter what style you choose, make sure that it is constructed of high standard material and makes for a sustainable and durable option.
