I love this kids room design by Tim Barder.
Kids are often our most difficult clients to please! Why, you ask? Because we are up against unbridled creativity. So, we are forced to regress. Think like a child – like anything is possible if you can dream it. Dressers that open to reveal secret passage ways, hidden play-lofts in ceilings, beds tucked into alcoves, chalkboard hallways and headboards that double as toy chests. These are a few of our favorite things. Don’t we wish all our clients let us think like kids!

Size of the Room
Even though bunk beds are a fun addition to your girl’s room, it is essential to know the space available before you buy the bed. There are different types of bunk beds available in the market, some with stairs, some with ladders and drawers. Each and every one of them has a space requirement for easy maneuvering. It is important to leave some walking space around the bed to ensure your children’s safety.
Type of Bunk Bed
The modern bunk beds come in various types to meet the needs of customers. You should evaluate the needs of your daughter before you decide on a type. The types of bunk beds include metal bunk beds, wooden bunk beds, loft bunk beds, futon bunk beds and themed bunk beds. Among the themed bunk beds, the castle bunk beds are quite popular with girls. Bunk beds, when combined with the right room accessories, fulfill the dream of your girl to live like a princess. You can also choose dollhouse themed bunk bed for a toy themed girl’s room. The wooden and loft bunk beds have a more practical use for storage and extra space.
It is essential to ensure that the bunk bed you choose follows all the safety guidelines. The top bunk should have guardrails of at least 5 inch height. The opening for entrance of the top bunk should not be more than 15 inches. The mattress for the bunk bed should never be too large or too small to avoid injury. The ladder used to enter the top bunk should be sturdy. You should see to it that the top bunk should be occupied by the elder child. The ladder or stairs may be a bit difficult to negotiate for toddlers and there may be risk of fall.
The reason for you to buy a bunk bed may be either to adorn your girl’s room or to keep up with latest trends in kid’s furniture or just giving in to your daughter’s wishes. The choice of the right bunk bed should be based on correct information and evaluation. Make sure you spend time in evaluating your daughter’s needs and choosing the perfect bunk bed. When you make an informed choice, you not only ensure your daughter’s safety and happiness but also make a long term profitable investment. Do not let the different types of bunk beds confuse you. Just think of your girl’s delight and you would surely make the perfect choice.
