Of all the furniture that one finds in a house, the bunker beds or bunk beds receive a lot of attention. One reason could be that the kids generally sleep on them, and everyone is quite keen when it comes to the kids and how they go about things. The other could be that the bunk bed is made in such a huge variety, and one would want to know the way it looks wherever one goes. This is indeed true; the designs, colours and types of this furniture item are in large numbers.
Types and Models Galore
This is something that stands out when visiting a furniture store; the physical one or the ones online. Of course, many other items of furniture are also made in different designs, but it always appears as if the designs and models of bunk beds are quite huge in variety and style. The simple ones will have the two tier wooden structure with a provision to climb from one side on to the top tier. Since there is the fear of the children rolling off the bed while asleep, there is a side support. In the lower tier, this support could be a sliding one and can be locked in position.
As one moves up the scale, you can find the ones with a ladder separately provided; a model where there is storage facility at the bottom and so on. The material with which the bunk bed is made can also vary, from the type of wood used, to even a combination of wood and steel as far the bottom frame is concerned.
Bunker Beds Can be Made Multipurpose As Well
There are fabulous designs of bunker beds, which have storage cupboards and also a study combined as an extension unit. This way, the parents would feel comfortable that the kids’ stuffs remain in their room itself. Their books and stationery and even the toys being in one place makes their lives easier in managing to keep the home tidy.
Then there are the colourful bunk beds, which many people buy, since you want the kids to be surrounded by all sorts of bright colours.
Special Care While Making Kids’ Furniture
While the designs and shapes can be of any type, the manufacturers of bunk beds have to keep in view that these are furniture used in the kids’ rooms, by and large, and have to be made of materials that are absolutely safe, from every point of view. Firstly, there should no sharp edges anywhere on the furniture. The final finish has to be totally smooth. If storage is being provided, then the knobs have to be such that they don’t cause any injury. Besides, any paint used has to be of a type that is environmentally safe and has no harmful effect. The users should also be able to maintain the furniture with least effort.
A bunk bed need not necessarily be used only by the kids. There are sleep over facilities where adults could be using these beds. Check on the warranty and other details also before placing the order. Your kids must grow in a healthy ambience.
