Beds need to be comfortable, functional and safe. They should also make the kids feel secure. The bunk beds are your classic designs for childrens beds. They come in an array of styles and variants but the classic style will always be an appealing option where two beds are stacked on top of each other and a ladder built on the bed. Finding the right bed is the responsibility of the parents. Here are some important considerations when choosing the right one with focus on comfort and safety.
Consider the height of the bunk beds together with the height of the room. Naturally, the bottom bed needs considerable allowance so that they can sit on the bed comfortably without hitting the top bed. Measure the height of the ceiling, the top bed should also have enough space or allowance. You do not want the child at the top to be blinded by the light or hit the ceiling. Aside from the height, make sure that it is considerably wide as well. You want to give them enough space to roll over and not fall into the floor.
The top of the bunk beds should be guarded from the sides. Freestanding ones normally are placed away from the wall so make sure that both sides of the bed are protected. Security is a big consideration since you do not want the child to fall onto the floor.
When it comes to the ladders, ideally, it should not obstruct the bottom bed. The style of the ladders can be removable or positioned at the foot of the bed. For kids, a slide or a stair type ladder could be a better option especially when they have just woken up. They might not still have balance yet so they could fall down on a step ladder and get into trouble. It is ideal to consider these options so that the child can enjoy going up and down the bed without problems or issues.
The bunk beds should have a stable frame. It is ideal to choose a bed that is not just appealing but also very durable. Is the bed wobbling when the child goes up or down? Does the bed have any squeaking sound? Look at the structure of the bed and consider if it is sufficient enough to handle kids. Are your kids hyperactive? You might want to have a bed that has soft materials to cover the frame to prevent them from getting injured. Does the bed tend to lean on the side? Is it stable enough? If there are any additions, are they safe and well installed into the bed structure?
Selecting children’s beds based on structure and safety precautions does not have to be a mundane and boring experience. Nonetheless, you have to make the right choices since you do not want your kids to feel threatened lying down their own beds. Safety should always be a priority but also consider how the aesthetics will appeal to the child.
