Bunk beds – before and after you buy them

Planning on decorating your child or children’s room but you don’t have very much space to work with? Bunk beds are a great idea for narrow spaces and they are appropriate for single rooms as well as shared ones.

However, installing bunk beds requires a bit of research and patience. So here a few aspects to be taken into consideration before and after purchasing/installing them:

Unlike what you are usually doing before buying a regular bed, you now have to measure the floor space as well as the ceiling height. Make sure you allow at least 2 feet space between the ceiling and the upper bed. The floor space depends on what type of bed you are choosing. For instance, if you want  a simple twin bunk bed, you won’t need more than the space required by a regular bed. However if you are planning on having, for instance, a bed with a closet/storage area below, make sure you allow the necessary space to open the doors and drawers.

Style and features.

We showed you in the previous article how you can incorporate a small bookcase and a slide, but that’s just one idea. With bunk beds, possibilities are endless.

All you have to do is figure out what practical use the bed will have. After that, for the more creative part, ask your children. They will flood you with ideas and, after all, they are the ones who will use it, so make sure they love it.

Please keep in mind that upper beds are not suitable for children under the age of 6. Also, you have to make sure that the mattress is fixed and there is no possibility for it to slip.

The bunk beds should have a ladder. It might be a good idea to also add a night light so the children can see where they are stepping.
