Bunk Beds & Loft Beds: Back to School Basics
Starting the school year right by providing busy students with a relaxing place to study, sleep, and even entertain is on the minds of many parents and caretakers this week. Check out some innovative options in bunk beds and loft beds that make living comfortable in a small space, a pleasure for students of any age.
There’s more to bunk beds than twin sized beds.Bunk beds are available in twin over twin, twin over full and full over full configurations. Back-to-school time is around the corner, and a bunk bed with bookcase is a great option for kids to store their favorite items and books for easy reach.
Not all kids are able to easily keep their room neat and tidy. If piles of clothes, books, toys, and various “super important stuff” have brought you to your wit’s end, bunk beds with drawers underneath might be the answer. Bunk beds with trundles are great as well as they feature a trundle to accommodate your kids’ sleepover guests.
Low Bunk Beds
Low bunk beds are the perfect option for a room with lower ceiling heights. For kids that want a bunk bed but are young, the lower choice is safer.
A low bunk bed with a desk is great when space is limited and a child needs a comfortable place to do their homework in peace and quiet. A low bunk bed with a chest is a great way to satisfy an adult’s need for a cohesive high-end look without sacrificing practical issues like storage space.
Loft beds are a great option for a room with a smaller footprint, or for a larger room that two kids share. A twin over twin loft bed offers more versatility than a traditional bunk bed. The twin over full loft bed is a great option if one child needs a bigger sleeping space. Either option is also available with a desk and storage to make keeping an organized space a bit simpler.
For College Students:
For college students living in dorms or sharing apartments with other students loft beds are a necessity. A loft bed with open space below increases the useable square feet in a small room and offers a bit of privacy for the sleeping space.
A loft bed with a desk is a nice option for both teenagers that are living at home and college students sharing small spaces. Many families decide to purchase a loft bed for their teenager with the intention of moving it into a college setting later.
Futon Bunk Beds
For college students, the futon bunk beds are a favorite option. Keeping a sleeping space versatile enough to accommodate studying and entertaining can be a real challenge in a dorm setting.
Choosing from a selection of high quality metal futon bunk beds or wood futon bunk beds gives your student the option of entertaining and they can also accommodate overnight out of town guests.
Shopping for the perfect bunk bed for teenagers and college students doesn’t have to be stressful. A great selection combined with knowledge of the space and individual needs makes purchasing this essential back to school furniture a breeze.
