xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 01st , 2017.
Is the bed sturdy? When assembled, it should not wobble. If you are looking at a bed in a store, shake it to see if it is sturdy. When you assemble the bed at home, check again before letting your children sleep in it. Screws and nuts should be tightened on a regular schedule to prevent loosening. Compare the weight of the bed as heavier beds are usually sturdier and wobble less.
Another word about safety, as you finish up your bunk bed: the distance in-between your bed frame and your mattress must not gap by more than three inches, or your children will be in danger of strangulation. PLEASE make sure you measure this accurately, and that your bed and mattress fit snugly.
Bunk beds make so much sense because they are versatile. When your child is outgrowing the crib and you don`t know what the future holds, a good bunk bed could be all you need. Buy one with the option to separate the beds so you can use them apart or stacked. Buy one in a classic style that can be used with any kind of bedding to suit your child`s preferences over the years. Once all your children have used the bed, pass it on to the grandchildren or resell it. A quality bunk bed will withstand the use and abuse over time and still come out looking great.
So you`ve got the perfect little log cabin, or chalet by the lake, or just want a country touch to your home. You want a log bunk bed, or two, but don`t know where to start. And they don`t carry them in your downtown furniture store. Not to worry, there are plenty of options available on the Internet. There are loft log bunk beds, twin over twin log bunk beds, full over full or even twin over queen. I haven`t seen a twin over king yet, but really the Amish can make any size you want. A lot of college students who looking to build an inexpensive loft bed might find an Amish loft bunk bed to be just the ticket, and some of them come with futons under them, too.
Last but not least, be sure to measure before you buy. Last year we sold a couple of log bunk beds to somebody in Montana. They absolutely loved the beds, but had bought two for the room and soon found out that only one could comfortably fit. Since we are in Michigan and they in Montana, it would have cost quite a bit to ship it back. They ended up selling the extra bed on ebay, but the problem could have been avoided with a bit of careful measuring up front.
