Bunk bed furniture hit the scene in the 80s and has been going strong ever since. It could be due to the average size of a child or teen room being a modest twelve foot by twelve foot. With new builders not planning child bedrooms any larger, bunk bed furniture is still a popular option for parents who want to accommodate more sleepers in a small space.
Bunk bed furniture was originally created and manufactured for families where multiple children share a small room. Years ago, children who shared a room were forced to sleep together in one bed. However today thatís no longer the case. Children can each have their own sleeping space via a bunk bed system. It gives them the opportunity to be more independent and cuts out on fights over whoís stealing the covers!
A traditional bunk bed system consisted of an upper twin bed and a lower twin bed. However, todayís bunk beds can come in a wide variety of styles. While the most popular model is still the traditional twin bed style, there are many more options for parents to consider. Some bunk beds come equipped with shelving or drawer space under the bottom bunk or located at the headboard of the bunks. This can allow for extra space in an otherwise tight room.
Other bunk beds are created with a twin bed at the top and a full bed on the bottom, allowing for even more space. This is a popular option when an older child shares a room with a younger sibling and allows the older child more sleeping room at night.
