The Benefits of Wood vs. Metal
Bunk beds constructed from wood come in a variety of finishes and show of the natural patina and grain of the material. When it comes to quality, wood is reputed to be strong, durable, and easy to clean. Another major benefit of wood bunk beds is their traditional and classic look, making it possible to keep the bunks for many years or to pass them on for subsequent generations to enjoy. However, in the event that it does acquire a few dents and scratches or you just want to give it a new colour, most wood bunk beds can be easily sanded down and refinished, which is often a cheaper and more economical alternative to buying something brand new.
Metal bunk beds are also a popular choice, and because they have more of a modern look they are great for teens, dorm rooms, and small apartment bedrooms. In addition to being very lightweight, they are more resistant to scratches, chipping, and UV damage making them ideal for active kids or frequent moving or rearranging.
Kids Bunk Beds are Perfect for Boys and Girls
Safety and sturdiness are the most important considerations when buying any bed for your child. To make sure the bed you choose doesn't shake or wobble, take note of your child's weight and height and make sure they are in line with the bunk beds safety recommendations. Ensure that the ladder on your bunk is one your child will feel comfortable using.
It's recommended that the thickness of the mattress you use in the top bunk does not exceed 6 inch and is at least 5 inches below the upper surface of the guardrails. As an example, if the guardrails of the upper bunk are 13.5 inches high, then you can safely use a mattress that is 8.5 inches or less thick.
There are a variety of different bunk bed designs for you to choose from including single on single, single on double, single on futon, double on double, and loft beds. Some bunk beds can be separated into two beds. To save yourself money down the line, choose a bunk bed that can grow with your child. Consider styles that a teenager or young adult may enjoy as you may see their bunk bed follow them to college.
Keep Your Bedroom Clean & Organized with Storage Options
Some of the bunk beds available at Wholesale Furniture Brokers offer storage drawers that fit directly under the lower bunk. The under-bed storage drawers are designed for easy access and provide the perfect storage solution for smaller spaces that don't have enough room for extra furniture pieces like nightstands, dressers, and chests. Trundles make great alternatives to storage drawers as they add another sleeping space that conveniently stores under the lower bunk.
If you have enough room in your bedroom, stairway chests can be designed with drawers in the side or steps of the chest. Bunk beds with stairs also allow easier access to the upper bunk instead of using a ladder.
