Bunk beds are a great space saver make bedtime fun for your little ones. Whether you’re looking for girls or boys bunk beds, one thing’s for sure. Finding the right wooden bunk bed is a great investment that might even grow with your child over time. We researched some of the top-rated, best-selling designs to help you find the right one for your family. Before we get into our products, let’s take a closer look at some of the important features to consider.
Access: There are generally 2 ways to access the top bunk: a ladder or stairs. Ladders take up a lot less space and are much easier to assemble. Stairs, on the other hand, are safer to climb and often include additional storage.
Weight Limit: This is the total limit for the whole bunk but you should consider the limit for each sleeping surface, too. They vary a lot, from 330 pounds for 2 bunks to upwards of 1000 pounds for a bunk with a trundle.
Size: These bunks are all either twin-over-twin or twin-over-full. (Believe it or not, in one case it’s twin-over-twin-over-twin.) Having a full bed as the bottom bunk actually adds a lot of versatility and makes a great addition to a guest room.
Finish: Most of these bunks come in a few different finishes, which is good news because you’ll most likely be able to find one that perfectly matches your decor. White, honey, natural, espresso… there are a lot of options!
Dimensions: It goes without saying that you should make sure a bunk will fit into your kid’s bedroom. That said, we found a lot of different sizes so, no matter how much space you have, there’s a bunk to fit it.
Warranty: Most of the products we chose come with a 1-year warranty. We did find one that’s for 60 days and a few with no warranty at all. Make sure you double check the fine print so you know what’s covered.
