The Top Three Reasons Why You Should Choose Bunk Beds

Choosing children’s discounted beds is much more fun these days than it was just a few decades ago, due to the many innovative and fun designs available. Bunk beds have been a popular item for children’s bedrooms since the 50s and are still one of the best purchases you can make for a child’s bedroom today.

 

Choosing new furniture for your home is a major purchase, because typically most householders can only afford to replace large items once every five years or so. Bedroom furniture is especially important, as we spend more time in bed than in any other part of the house.

 

Bunk beds make optimal use of limited space

 

It is believed the first bunk beds date back to ancient Egypt, as there is evidence they used a type of loft bed that sometimes incorporated two sleeping spaces; one above the other. Whether they used this type of sleeping arrangement due to space issues is unclear: but in Britain bunk beds have been used for many decades in rooms that have limited space. These include small rooms in a home, dormitories in boarding schools, and military camps. Bunk beds are also a common feature seen on sailing vessels from large cruise ships to small cabin boats. Using bunk beds in a small bedroom allows two people to sleep in the room, while only taking up the same amount of floor space as one person. The saved space can then be used to add a desk, wardrobe, or other useful storage item to the room.

 

Bunk beds look fabulous

 

Although in the 60s and 70s bunk beds were very plain affairs, and usually just consisted of a plain metal frame with two mattresses and a ladder, these days there a wide range of bunk beds at reasonable prices that look fabulous. Ugly and boring children’s bedroom furniture is a thing of the past; and today you can buy bunk beds designed as tree houses, double decker buses, and pirate ships. For girls, there are fairy tale princess castles or Cinderella carriage bunk beds.

 

Some of the larger constructions also incorporate ample storage space into the bunk bed. You will find beds with drawers beneath the lower bunk, cupboards built in under the steps that lead to the top bunk, or wardrobes attached to the side of the bunk. Because these beds are often painted in bright bold colours, they cheer up even the smallest room that would otherwise look dull and dreary due to limited space.

 

Children love them

 

Young children have always been enthralled with the idea of climbing up a ladder to go to bed. In the past the child who would be sleeping on the bottom bunk would be disappointed, because the bottom bunk did not offer any special features. However, nowadays children will often also fight to see who will sleep in the bottom bed, as theme bunk beds have cozy little lower sections that are often completely enclosed as part of the design. The child can imagine himself to be a pirate, spaceman or a caveman enclosed in his own little hideout when nobody else can enter.
