xxtk. Bunk Beds. August 26th , 2017.
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.
How to Buy a Quality Bunk Bed. We all know that when it comes to bunk beds, quality matters. Cheap bunk beds can come apart and collapse making them a real safety hazard. When you go shopping, how can you differentiate between a quality bed and a cheap bed? Here are some tips to help you determine that.
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.
And even before your children start clamoring over who gets to sleep in the top bunk, take a few minutes and go over the safety features of your new bunk beds. We recommend not allowing children under the age of six to sleep in the upper bunk. The access to the upper bunk is also important. Please take a moment to teach your kids how to safely use the ladder of the bed. Also, consider using a children`s night light. The extra light provides additional security, both for the child, and for you.
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.
