Children's Furniture and BunkBeds for Kids
Bunk beds consist of one bed on top of the other. The reason bunk beds exist is to allow two people to sleep in the same room minimising the floor space used.
They are usually supported by 4 pillars (usually wooden) one at each corner of the bed and as the top bed is quite high off the ground, a ladder is used to access it.
Kids Bunk Beds and Themed Loft Beds
Bunk Beds vary quite a bit in price from cheap models made from metal or light wooden frames with mattresses are supported by metal wire and springs to much more expensive types made from quality hardwood complete with shelves and drawers etc. Themed beds for kids are also available for boys and girls rooms.
Other variations exist such as Beds For Lofts which take up less space than the traditional sizes and futon bunk beds which have a seating area on the lower bunk that can be converted into a bed easily.
Construction Materials for Kids Beds
The two popular choices for construction are metal and wooden. While both materials are perfectly secure, safe, and provide a great building material for a bunk bed, some people may decide on one or the other for personal tastes. Whichever construction material you decide on, follow all the manufacturer's instructions for assembly very carefully!
Wood and metal are the most common materials used for bunk beds and indeed other furniture alike, this is because both materials are strong and when used and cared for correctly, can last an extremely long time. More information and advice on buying cheap bunk beds.
The disadvantages and advantages of bunk beds material
There are no significant differences in quality or longevity of a wooden bunk bed or one manufactured from metal. They are both equally as good and provide a stable and secure framework. However as time progresses a wooden bed will grow weaker and the metal will rust (especially in damp rooms) and then both will eventually become unustable.
Since both materials are similar, why make the choice? This really depends on what your other bedrom furniture is constructed from, you may wish to pick the metal option to compliment the other materials in your room, or vice versa with wood. There are other choices for example metal and wooden material combinations. A lot of beds today are made from both wood and metal for that maximum strength and compatibility with other furniture. Have you considered white bunk beds which are more universal as far as boys and girls rooms are concerned, and will match most colour schemes.
Loft Beds - What is a Loft Bed
Loft beds are bunk beds that have the bottom bunk removed, leaving only the top bunk. It creates an open space underneath that can be used as a work area or for cabinets and drawers etc. Loft beds are useful if you have small bedrooms. If you have a large family, you could also consider Double Loft Beds which will increase sleeping space without taking much more room space.

Loft beds are an efficient way to use small spaces by making use of the entire vertical area that would otherwise be left unused. Some loft beds even have stowable beds while retaining the possibility of using workstations and drawers etc.

Comfortable Bunk Bed Mattresses
Quality mattresses are important to help get a good and relaxing nights sleep. Make your choice wisely and try out some bunk bed mattresses in a few stores before you make any purchasing decisions. They are manufactured in a wide variety of sizes and filling options therefore you should be able to find one within your budget.
Flooring Materials for Bedrooms
Kid's bedroom floors attract a lot of traffic and wear and tear... from mucky feet, to spilage of paints, food or ground in crayons! It's therefore necessary to have flooring that's hard wearing and easily cleaned on a regular basis.
Materials such as laminate or wooden flooring are very practical, however tend to have very hard surfaces which aren't the most suitable for trips and falls. Carpet is a much softer and warmer product, however carpet tiles are the most flexible option to choose, offering hardwearing, warm, soft flooring which can be scrubbed or easily cleaned, and in cases of tough staining, replaced tile by tile. A wide variety of carpet tiles are available in many textures, colours and price options.
