Double bunk beds are an excellent space-saving option perfect for those who have a group of young children at home, or just to save space in a larger adult guest bedroom. There are various styles that you can choose from, too. Some popular themes are pirate, princess, nautical, and a haunted house. You may even have a favorite character theme.
The best part about double and triple bunk beds is that they can accommodate children of different ages. Children as young as two can use them. Younger children may be more comfortable sleeping in a twin-sized bed. As your children grow older, you can transition to a full-sized bed with a twin, full, queen, king, or California king. A couple of beds that will fit your needs are twin wide bed and a loft bed.
If you're looking for a bunk bed with storage, you should also look for a plan that has storage options. Most loft beds have either a center drawer or a low loft drawer. For some, the drawers are located in a spot that is visually pleasing but easily accessible. If you choose to get a bed with drawers, you'll want to make sure that the drawers are the same height as the rest of the furniture in the room. This helps make your bed look less like a miniature dresser.
If you're looking for a woodworking project that utilizes a triple bunk bed frame, you should know how to measure correctly. Before you begin, you need to know the exact measurements of each of your children. Measure from their knee pads to about 30 inches above their heads. Another way to measure is using a tape measure and marking the spot where you'll drill the first hole. After you mark the spot, use an appropriate pencil to mark the next piece of wood to be used. This will help you keep all the pieces lined up correctly when you begin.
Once you've marked the spots for the rails and the wood to be used, cut the pieces according to the woodworker's specifications. Use masking tape to ensure that the measurements are precise. Once all the pieces are cut, they can be assembled. Following any DIY project guidelines, you need to fasten the rails into place with screws and wood screws.
If your children share a bedroom, each should have his or her own bed so that none of them feel left out. With a double sleeper, there's plenty of room underneath for a twin to sleep on top. The sleeper can then return to the top bunk, leaving plenty of room under the top bunk for the other children to sleep in. Double sleeping spaces provide kids with a place to read, study, sleep, and play.
If you're looking for a way to save space in your children's bedroom, consider installing built-in shelving. Some retailers provide built-in shelves for easy installation. Other retailers allow you to install a free-standing shelving unit on your own if you don't feel confident installing the shelving unit yourself. A quality furniture builder says that a built-in shelving system provides peace of mind for buyers, because the shelving units usually come with lockable doors and are created with slip-resistant plastic, making them durable and safe.
With a bunkbed and low loft bed, you get maximum use out of the best features of both types of bedroom furniture. For maximum use of your loft bed, install a double overhead bunk bed. For maximum use of a double bunk bed, install a low loft bed. You'll be glad you did.
