Choosing a bunk bed in the nursery
The birth of a child is undoubtedly a great joy. And twins - this is joy, multiplied by half. However, more often than not, it is not possible to provide each of the children with a separate room, which means that it is necessary to place twice as much furniture in one nursery.
In such cases, the design of the nursery would be the most appropriate bunk bed, which saves a significant amount of space. It will also help out if the children are not twins, but have a slight difference in age. On the Internet you can find a lot of photos of the interiors of children's rooms with a bunk bed.
Tips for choosing
The advantages of a bunk bed are obvious:
- Tangible space savings in the nursery.
- Children willingly include a double bed in their games.
- The cost of a double bed is lower than two single beds.
Deciding to buy a double bed, you must first think about the material of manufacture. Many parents prefer metal because of its high strength, since the safety of the structure plays an important role. But the beds of high-quality solid wood are not inferior to metal. In addition, the tree is environmentally friendly and safe for health material. It is preferable to hard, but not too expensive species, such as pine, ash, walnut.
The design of the bed, as well as all the furniture in the nursery, should not have sharp corners and other elements about which the child could get hurt. The upper tier of the bed must be provided with protective sides so that the child cannot fall to the floor in a dream.
The size of the bed depends on the age and needs of the child. The main thing is that he can comfortably stretch himself in bed to his full height, freely toss and turn and take his favorite toys with him. The height between the tiers should allow you to sit comfortably on the lower tier, not only for the child, but also for the adult.

Ladder to climb should be as comfortable and safe for the child. What is important is not so much its design, as the strength and frequency of the rails, as well as the presence of handrails. The crossbars must be of such a form that the child’s foot cannot slip, otherwise bruises cannot be avoided. The ladder can be either strictly vertical or inclined, located at the end of the bed or on the side.
A bunk bed can be a whole complex, equipped with drawers for clothes and lockers, a writing desk or a computer desk, and even game elements. This technique allows you to put everything you need in the nursery as efficiently as possible.
Transforming models of bunk beds, which can be disassembled into two single beds, are very convenient. It is important that all the connections of such a design are reliable, and the process of assembly and disassembly is rather simple.

The ideal option is to make a bunk bed to order based on the dimensions of a particular room, the preferences and needs of children, the overall interior design. This option allows you to get a unique stylish furniture for individual design. Inspiration will be awakened by photos of finished interiors of rooms for several children.
Tip: even twins can have completely different characters, tastes and hobbies. Therefore, the design of the upper and lower tiers may vary, as long as the overall design of the bed does not “fall out” from the nursery's interior.
The most common design of a bunk bed is when the tiers are strictly one above the other. Thus, a particularly cozy chamber atmosphere is created below. However, to some children, on the contrary, it seems that the upper “floor” hangs ominously over the lower cot. In this case, you can buy a bed in which the tiers are arranged with a shift, and the free space under the upper tier is occupied by a wardrobe or chest of drawers, a workplace with a written or computer desk.

Under the first tier, you can provide an extra retractable bed, if children like to invite friends overnight. If there is no need for additional space, drawers for storing bed linen will be perfectly located below.
A bunk bed is a fairly versatile furniture. It is suitable for both small children and teenagers. In addition, with the help of the original decor, it can be turned into a ship, a London bus, a plane, a fairy castle - everything is limited only by the imagination and tastes of the child. Ideas are easy to learn from a variety of photos of children's room interiors.
