xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 19th , 2017.
What is the bed made of? Solid wood, metal, or a combination of the two is best. Avoid particle board like the plague. Hardwoods, such as birch, cedar, and maple, are best. If your choice is a metal frame, select one that is made of a heavier metal like steel and with a larger diameter of tubing.
Some examples of twin full bunk beds for sale presently, are the Pine Wood and metal futon style. This bed is convertible to allow seating when the lower bed is not being used, and costs $299 brand new, which is a very reasonable price. The mattresses are sold separately and the unit is a breeze to assemble. The Twin Over Full Honey Trundle Bed, is simply amazing in that the bottom converts into a full bed with its own trundle bed which pulls out easily beneath it. This makes three beds and is great for sleepovers with friends or cousins. The frame is made from solid Brazilian pine, the finish is safe for children, and the entire unit only costs $495. That is a great price for two twins and one full sized bed. The ladder to the top bunk has child friendly rungs. When shopping for the mattresses, you only need buy one standard full and two twin sizes.
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.
Is the bed safe? Does it comply with all the safety standards? Where was it manufactured and do you trust the quality control of that country? Read up on the safety standards before shopping so you know. Are there obvious safety issues like sharp, protruding edges, unfinished wood, or splinters? Any violations in this area could lead to serious injuries. Beds coming from a reputable furniture manufacturer should be compliant with safety standards.
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.
