Best Bunk Beds for Kids
All around the world kids and adults love bunk beds. Kids love them because there is something fun and comforting about sleeping in one, and adults love them for their space saving ability and versatility.
Not only are bunk beds more fun to sleep on, but kids quickly transform them into hideouts and castles with blankets and bedding and are always popular with sleep overs.
Would Should get a Bunk Bed?
Bunk beds are ideal for:
- Small children
- When children are young, sharing a room with a sibling is often far more fun and comforting than sleeping alone. It also gives them a wonderful opportunity to play together and have fun as they build pillow forts and blanket tents on their bunk beds. For older children the additional space for desks or play areas in the room is always a big plus!
- Small rooms
- Because bunk beds halve the space that is needed in a kid's room, it allows more space for your kids toys and play area or desk, making them ideal for young families! Some bunk beds such as the Tommy Double Bunk Bed can be separated into two single beds should your children grow older or you move house.
- Holiday Houses
- Over the holidays you might have a lot of friends and family visiting you at your holiday house and sleeping space comes at a premium! Bunk beds solve this problem by doubling up on beds.

Bunk Bed Safety
One of the most important things to remember when buying a bunk bed is safety! It is recommended that only children over the age of six are allowed to sleep on the top. We recommend using your own judgement regarding your children's age when it comes to getting them a bunk bed. If you are buying a bunk bed for young children make sure that the bed has a safety rail and we also suggest putting your bunk bed against the wall and in a corner to lessen any chance of a child falling off the bed.
