So your family has grown and it’s time to invest in a set of bunk beds. How do you know which ones to pick? They all look great and you’re sure that your child would love any one of them. Here are a few things that you can consider when you are shopping around for twin over twin bunk beds for your little ones.
Most of the bunk beds that you’ll see come with a twin size mattress. For younger children this is the perfect size for them. With twin bunks you won’t have any problem finding sheet sets that will fit perfectly. As well, some of the themed comforter sets for children are available in twin sizes only so it will be easier to pick out the right bedding for these bunks.
As you do your bunk bed shopping you’ll see a wide variety of steel or wooden beds. Both of these options have their pros and cons. A wooden bunk will generally last longer than a steel one since they are more durable and solid. Steel bunks, however, offer a more modern look and are easier to move if you want to change the bedroom around for a different look.
The next thing you’ll want to check is the safety of the top bunk. You’ll be looking for a railing that runs along the length of each side. There may be an opening in the railing for the latter to fit in, but this opening should be quite small. Make sure that these railings are high as well so that your child cannot accidentally roll over the edge. See how high it is once the mattress has been added, not before.
Although it will take extra time, take your children along with you when you are shopping for these bunk beds. It’s important that your kids like the beds since they are going to be the ones that are sleeping in them, after all. If you’re shopping on the Internet for beds, let them look through the pages with you and give their feedback. Children love shopping, especially if it’s for something for them.
When it comes to bunk beds for children, safety should be the priority followed by the design and materials used. This way, you’ll be able to find the perfect bunk beds for your children’s room with a little persistence and some help from your youngsters.
