Wood is perhaps the most common material for bunk beds, and understandably so, as it is both very attractive and very long lasting. Although a lighter weight than metal, wooden frames are still incredibly strong and sturdy.
Aesthetically pleasing, the natural beauty of wooden frames paired with subtle features such as brass drawer pulls or intricately carved headboards can make these beautiful beds very appealing.
Unfortunately, wooden beds are typically not the best choice for children, as their strength is not easily extended. Therefore, they should only be purchased if you are confident of using them on a regular basis.
Metal is also commonly used for bunk beds, although it can be much less visually appealing than wood. Although metal can certainly look good, it does present some problems including durability and safety. Since the frames of many metal models are forged, they may be more difficult to repair should a fall occur.
This issue is not an issue with wooden beds, however, as the entire structure is designed to be extremely sturdy and long-lasting.
A popular option for a bunk bed with desk is the use of wooden railings. Rather than use the traditional flat wooden rails that are sometimes seen, there are bunk bed with desk rail systems that use strong, locking latches to prevent the bed from opening during use. These latches, in addition to being extremely secure, allow for the use of either a ladder or desk inside the frame. This allows the child to work at the desk without worrying about accidentally falling through the frame or swinging from side to side.
Other popular bunk bed features incorporate cabinets with storage space, drawers, and even mirrors. Many have shelves located above the top bunk, while others include cabinets below the bottom bunk. While the cabinets located on the top of the beds offer little practical use, those located below may serve a useful purpose.
In addition, there is no requirement for dressers or chests to be placed either on the top or bottom of the structure. This makes the bunk bed with a desk an excellent choice for any young couple’s room.
Finally, if your children have difficulty climbing the ladder, many bunk beds with desks feature built-in platforms that will help them reach the top of the bed. These platforms usually just step away, making them an easy way for younger children to gain access to the top of the bed.
Many models also feature built-in railings that will allow for the easy installation of trundle units that attach below the loft bed frame. With all of these available options, there is likely to be a bunk bed with a desk perfect for your family.
