Have you noticed that children’s bunk beds seem to be becoming much more fashionable lately? With my own children insisting on growing at an astonishing rate it became necessary recently to go on a hunt for children’s beds. I must admit that when I was a child I always wanted a bunk bed, but strangely enough it didn’t immediately occur to me that a children’s bunk bed would represent an ideal and very practical solution.
Whilst I was looking around the children’s beds I noticed that there are three main kinds of bunk bed available. The first of these are those bunk beds made from steel. These seemed quite sturdy, modern looking and were also the most affordable. I also came across wooden bunk beds which always look at home, as well as painted or decorated bunk beds which help to match the theme or style of the existing bedroom furniture.
It didn’t seem to make a great deal of difference what style of bed we looked at, but one thing was clear and that was how keen my children were to explore the top bunk. Why is it that when shopping for beds I can’t get them out, yet at home they refuse to go to bed at all?
If, like me, you find your children taking over the floor of your living room it may well be because they have very little room to play in their bedrooms. Having bunk beds instead immediately saves a huge amount of floor space, and can prove to be hugely successful in taking the strain off your living room floor area, and letting your children have fun without scattering toys across the floor like some kind of assault course.
My children aren’t alone in loving the adventure of climbing a ladder to go to bed. What it is about bunk beds which is so appealing to children? I have a theory that it just means they can look me in the eye more easily when asking if they can have a pet snake for Christmas. But one thing is certain – having purchased a children’s bunk bed I have noticed that they’re a lot more keen to get into bed at the end of the day than they were before – certainly that in itself is worth a good deal!
It occurred to me recently as I was looking to buy an inflatable bed so that my children’s friends can stay overnight, that by buying a bunk bed their friends can stay anytime they want. Most children start wanting friends over as they get older, and a bunk bed is the perfect answer – saving time and effort, and being much more comfortable and convenient. Of course, the thanks and appreciation from my children wasn’t really a factor at all!
The ways in which the designers of children’s bunk beds have considered adapting them to allow for maximum flexibility is extraordinary. I came across some bunk beds which actually split into two separate single beds. This would be perfect if you have children of different ages and are passing beds down the ages in various combinations. It certainly means that you save money in the long run.
The only real problem I had when it came to children’s bunk beds was how to get them home. Having seen the shops I decided to buy online. I used Cleverclicker.co.uk because they have an excellent range, and deliver free of charge – ideal for getting large, bulky items to your home hassle free. They offer all of the type of bunk beds I’d seen in the shops – wood, steel and decorated, as well as split and standard bunks.
