xxtk. Bunk Beds. August 29th , 2017.
The plans included with these beds begin by telling you to construct each bed separately, and then, in a reverse Siamese-twin kind of operation, how to put them back together. The bunk beds, when stacked, should be as solid as the single bed unit by itself. This is usually easier said than done. Next comes supporting the mattresses. When it comes to the wood required for the job, plywood will work, but why not use back springs to make sure your child`s bed is durable. They will be sturdier, but also provide a much more comfortable slumber for your kids.
This cannot be said enough. The safety of your children should be your primary concern when constructing your bunk beds. Various national groups have been set up to monitor and test the safety of bunk beds. If you`re interested in a particular brand, ask if it meets the voluntary safety guidelines of the American Standards of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the minimum safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Both of these groups have been around for a long time, and their approval indicates a quality, tested product. Make sure your mattress fits properly. A space greater than three inches should not be tolerated.
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.
These three types of bed are just a snapshot of what is available on the market today. Whether your priority is purely fun or the more practical need to save space, you can be sure to find a wide range of suitable bunk beds for kids for sale.
A good way to learn about bunk bed construction before you attempt it on your own is to help a friend put his bunk beds together. Usually, if you think about it, pre-packaged bunk beds come with the "plans" to build them. They outline the tools that you will need, the nuts and bolts that you`re supposed to have, and give step-by-step instructions for helping you do it yourself.
