Points to Consider While Purchasing Solid Wood Bunk Beds

by William Dawson Writer
Designing a bedroom can be a ton of fun, but it can be overwhelming as well if you don’t know where to start or sometimes even worse- when you don’t have a lot of space to work with. When you were a kid and have had a bunk bed- you will remember what fun they were. Now you have to choose a bunk bed for your space, while safety is one of the biggest concerns when purchasing a solid wood bunk bed but as a parent, you will have other priorities too.

When weighing your options and trying to decide on solid wood bunk beds that can be right for you, there are many options on the market. While this is great, they are not all created equal on important matters such as materials used, appearance, longevity, and durability. Here are a few things that you may want to consider so you know how to decide if the hardwood bunk bed you have been eyeing is right for you.

Consider the Size and Room Layout

Be sure to consider who the bed is going to be used for and what size and layout the room is. Even though the room may have large enough dimensions to comfortably house a loft bed, that doesn’t mean that it is going to fit nicely. Take the extra time to measure the room, figure out the ceiling height for the best dimensions for a bunk bed. Look at the doors, closets, and windows, to figure out the best space where the bunk bed can be placed without blocking closets or windows.

Use/Purpose of the Hardwood Bunk Bed

Before you go online and splurge on a new bed, give some consideration on how it will be used and what functions it should perform as bunk beds can now serve more than just the purpose of sleeping. If your room does not have enough storage, you can add storage drawers which can be a great way to store items that are frequently used, as well as taking less space in the room. There are all kinds of options you can choose from, for instance, if you need a twin bunk bed over a queen bed. Everything can be done!

Consider the Safety Options

If looking for bunk beds for your kids, safety is one of the most important points to consider. In particular, you need to make sure that kids are old enough to use the one you choose. Besides that, ensure that it has all the safety features such as guardrails, foot boards, and headboards with the use of Eco-friendly materials that are fully compliant. 

Bunk beds made of solid wood, using strong components and toxic-free materials, are key for safety. To go along with this point, consider who you are buying for and read all the precautions and safety information you may want to take for your child.

Bunk Beds made of Hardwood

While buying bunk beds for children, the selection of material decides the durability and looks for them. The beds need to be robust enough to survive, after all, they are so much more than beds- sometimes trampoline, hiding place, or a battleground. You don’t have to settle for any boring old shade of wood, either just because you are going with a wood bed. You get a more modern looking bed in many shades and colors made of solid hardwoods that can withstand years of bouncing and they are sturdy and strong enough for adults as well. Choose brands that can offer custom shades, paints, and stains that are compliant as well as committed to the safety of children and the environment is a great option.

Pick the Right Mattress for Comfortable Sleep

This is just as important as your room layout! Make sure you are selecting a mattress that actually fits your bed as well as made from natural materials that are affordable, Eco-friendly, and hypoallergenic alternatives to most other mattresses.
