Wooden bunk beds for kids
The Mattress Warehouse offers some great wooden bunk beds for kids. These are the options available:
Types of Wooden Bunk Beds
- Standard or twin wooden bunk beds
The most common type of bunk bed is the standard bunk bed or twin bunks. With this bed, mattresses are stacked one above the other. The bed is very popular for kids’ bedrooms. A variation on the twin over twin is the twin over full bunk which has a bigger mattress at the bottom and a smaller mattress at the top, like the Denise Tri-bunk. These beds are not as commonly available as they need a large bedroom. If you are looking for this style of a wooden bunk bed, The Mattress Warehouse has the Tri-Bed made from beautiful solid wood.
- L-shaped wooden bunk beds
The L-shaped bed is an interesting twist on the bunk bed. Instead of the conventional design, which stacks the beds one on top of the other, the L-shaped wooden bunk bed design has the beds at different angles. The bottom bed is designed to sit in an L shape to the top bed, like the Charlene L-shaped bunk bed. The L-shaped design is certainly going to add an interesting look to the bedroom. It also allows for a space to be created beneath the bed in which a desk or small bookshelf can be placed. This is an ideal wooden bunk bed option for a shared kids’ bedroom.
- Loft-style wooden bunk beds
This is designed with the top bed higher than the usual bunk bed. This bed does not have to accommodate two sleepers, but the space which is created below the top bed can be ideally used to place a bookshelf, chest of drawers or a desk. A loft bunk bed works well when you need extra space.
What type of wood is used for wooden bunk beds?
We use 35-year old aged radiate pine for the construction of the wooden bunk beds. This type of wood is affordable and lighter option compared to solid hardwood.
Benefits of wooden bunk beds
- Space-saving especially in cases where kids need to share a room. A loft bed is another variation, allowing for space and storage below. Wooden bunk beds with storage are another popular choice for buyers who have limited space.
- More affordable than two single beds as you save on headboards and bedside tables. Cheap bunk beds, which are manufactured from pine wood are excellent value for money for buyers on a budget.
