How To Buy The Best Bunk Bed

How to buy a bunk bed

Bunk BedA bunk bed can be a great investment for a child’s bedroom, that can not only save you space but also money. However you want to make sure that you are getting the best product possible. It needs to be safe, durable, high quality, and attractive enough that it will match your kids tastes even as they grow and mature. That is why you have to shop around and look at all of the options that are available before you make a decision.

The most important part of finding the best bunk bed is to make sure that the piece is completely safe. You need it to be sturdy enough to hold your children throughout the night, while also handling the rigors of rambunctious play that can be the bane of any kids furniture piece. With KFS Stores bunk beds you are getting products that are guaranteed to exceed ASTM standards for durability and quality. That means that they are actually safer than they have to be, which can give you peace of mind when entrusting your precious loved ones to these nests.


Bunk BedsAnother important aspect is the design of the piece. The best bunk bed will be one that can last for years without having to be replaced due to the changing tastes of the children who use it. One good option for this is the use of products that are made from real, solid wood materials. The draw of these items is that they can match nearly any look or decor that you can imagine, allowing the room, the walls, the decoration, and the accessories to all change at will, while still flowing with the look of the piece.


Some kids are reluctant to share a room with siblings, which can lead to fights, and resentment. With a high quality bunk bed you can give each child their own unique space within the environment, separating them vertically so that one can claim the sky, while the other will get a special hiding hole below for building fortresses and castle keeps.


In addition to the extra space that you can get from buying a bunk bed, you can also often save money. These pieces tend to be priced lower than the cost of purchasing two separate beds for your kids. You can also get an even better deal when you buy the bed bundled with other furniture pieces, which will help to reduce your expenditures while also ensuring that the entire room matches naturally.


Buy a Loft BedNot all bunk beds are designed to be purely functional. You also have a variety of loft options that are built to be fun and whimsical. This includes things like dollhouse beds that are painted to look like a real house that your kid can nestle down in each evening. You also have tent slide bunk beds which have flaps that cover the bottom, and a fun board that can be sluiced down each morning to start the day with vigor and excitement.


Buying the best bunk bed is a matter of figuring out what you need, and then matching that to the options that are available to you. Whether you are looking to save money, space, or just create an integrated look, you will find something perfect by browsing the KFS Stores collection of wonderful, safe, and stylish kids furniture options.

Unique Bunk Beds For Girls

There are a variety of unique bunk beds for girls which can be purchased to add a sense of personality and character to a room. While standard pieces will be functional at saving floor space, finding a bed that is attractive, inspiring, and distinct will help you to customize the environment, matching the furnishings to the personality of the children who will be inhabiting it.

Sometimes it can be difficult to get two siblings to accept the idea of sharing a room. They may feel like it’s an intrusion on their privacy, or may even have to deal with a sense of loss of identity, as their space is encroached upon by another person. A unique bunk bed can offset this problem by giving each child a specific space all their own, isolated to some extent by dimension. One will get to sit astride the world in her towering top bunk while the other will have a secret cove hidden down below.

In this picture we see the twin dollhouse bunk bed, a unique furnishing that is manufactured to look like a giant home for toys. This can add a sense of whimsy to the space, instilling it with creative energy which will in turn benefit your girls as they develop. With this model you have an elevated twin sized bed space above, with room for a second twin sized sleeping area embedded below.

A playful bunk bed like this can also be a great furniture item in a girls playroom. The elevated sleeping surface is the perfect utility to accommodate friends and relatives that stay for the night. At the same time the entire thing is like a giant toy, that can be played with and enjoyed whenever it is not being functionally used. That makes it a very versatile option.

Here we see the Donco metal bunk bed with stairs. These are a unique option for girls bedrooms, as they have a stylish, sophisticated look that is both attractive and modern. The elevated elegance of their metallic sheen makes these the perfect pieces for both young and older teenage girls bedroom settings. They’re also durable, reliable, and able to last for years when properly cared for, allowing them to grow with your children over time.

The last unique bunk bed that we are going to look at is the Discovery World Furniture twin over twin merlot stained bunk. While this solid wood design does have a traditional feel, the natural grain of the materials used is distinct and characteristically different in each model that is produced. That gives every piece its own specific personality, which it will then lend to the surrounding environment it is placed within.

Are Bunk Beds Safe?

The question of whether bunk beds are safe for kids is a complex issue, that involves a number of factors. This includes the type of bed, the quality of its manufacture, the way the child uses it, the position of the piece, and the amount of instruction given before one is purchased. While some injuries do occur while using these pieces each year, most of those are due to shoddy craftsmanship and improper horse play with an item that is meant primarily to be a sleeping surface.

Ensuring the strength and durability of a bunk bed is the most important thing that a parent can do to protect their child from injuries and accidents. You need to purchase from a reputable retailer offering pieces manufactured by a quality design and production company. At KFS Stores all of our bunk beds are built with real metal on metal connectors, using solid wood materials, to ensure the greatest strength possible. This allows our products to exceed the ASTM’s requirements for loft safety.

Another vital factor when purchasing a bunk bed is the tensile strength of the rail that will hold the child in place on the upper surface. If possible, this should be a reinforced rod, that is solid, sturdy, and embedded strong within the frame of the overall piece. That can help to prevent falls while sleeping.

Staircase Bunk Safety

You should also consider the difference between stair case and ladder bunk beds. With steps, your children will have a much safer, easier way to ascend and descend from the top bunk when desired. A ladder is a little more precarious for younger kids, although if sturdy and strong enough should be acceptable for normal use.

The basic positioning of a bunk bed can affect its level of safety. In general you want to try and position these pieces in the corner of a room, so that there are two full walls surrounding it. Those will act as barriers, shielding the child from falling, while giving them a surface other than the bed rail to lean against when sitting up and watching television or reading.

Education is another vital factor when it comes to kids bunk bed safety. Before you even purchase the piece you have to be sure that the children are mature enough to handle the responsibility of a raised bedding solution. Talk to them about it, and impress the importance of safety when climbing and ascending from the bunk. Make it clear that they should never just jump down, and enforce strict rules against horse play.

Bunk beds can be safe, if you purchase them from a quality retailer such as KFS Stores, which features a lovely collection of durable Discovery World Furniture pieces. You also have to reinforce bunk safety education, while taking precautions against horseplay, and accidents.
