Parents use bunk beds for kids to let one room for two persons together. There are pros and cons about this matter. If you have two kids, six and eight years old, having bunk bed is not a problem. Several matters should be considered when putting this kind of bed for kids.
Major concern about this bed is safety measure. Actually, bunk bed is used to optimize room where no space to use normal mattress. This bed can be found in army garrison, ship, dormitories, etc. They are for adult, so the design is very different to the kid version.
You may think bunk beds for children bedroom is small version of adult. It might be true, but there are some adjustments to keep safety at the top priority. To make sure that kid cannot fall from above, high safety rail will cover around bed perimeter. This guardrail is also available in both top and below section.
Another consideration regarding safety measures is material. For kids, bunk beds need to be free from unhealthy component such as corrosive stain. If you use steel or metal, bunk beds should come under strict inspection before they are ready to use. The material should be strong to handle unwanted event during sleeping time.
Moreover, although the material is strong enough, you should still check the frame and construction of bunk beds for kids. Safety rail will cover perimeter, not integrate the structure. The top part has to be very strong and cannot afford to fall down which create severe damages.
This bunk bed consists of four pillar and ladder to help kids reach to section. As parent, you need to check the height of this bed. Children might be safe when sleeping at top as long as they do not climb and go down after sleeping.
Based on regulation, kids with age under six years old are prohibited to sleep at the top part. However, it does not mean you let them sleep at the lower section. Well, bunk beds for kids are good for those with the age over seven or eight.
