A bunk bed is also convenient in terms of cleaning, because many kids do not like to spend their time on it, which, you see, you can spend much more fun. All bunk options, in addition to folding models, it is enough to cover with a veil, and a neat look is ready.

If desired, the upper bed can be completely removed or divided into two equal beds. This is very convenient at the time of adaptation of the child, as well as if after the purchase it turned out that the baby is still scared to sleep alone at the top.

In addition to savings in the amount of one bed, many bunk transforming beds are additionally equipped with a desk, lockers, chairs and even a slide. At the same time, all baby things are stored in one place, which is very convenient in a one-room apartment when you want to equip an individual place for each family member.


Bunk furniture is different in appearance and functionality. They should be selected depending on the area of ​​the nursery and the availability of other furniture.

Bed + wardrobe + table

Not every bunk bed is designed for two kids. There are transformers, aimed primarily at saving space. So, the “bed + wardrobe + table” design has two parts:

  • stationary;
  • movable.

The stationary part of the design has in its arsenal a cabinet or shelves at the request of the customer. The movable element contains a bed transformable into a desk.Surprisingly, today on the desk you can set the monitor in a fixed position, which greatly facilitates the process of cleaning.

In addition, in some models designed for one child, the sleeping place is transferred to the top, at the bottom there is a zone for games and work. So, a table on wheels can easily move away from the structure, move around the room, and if necessary be cleaned and completely invisible.


Today, designers have improved the design of the “wardrobe + bed + table” for one child in a model for two children. The second bed here is conveniently located on the roof of the cabinet. This is an amazing way to save space, however, the child at the top is not in a very advantageous position. For example, if the height of the cabinet is sufficient, the child on the upper tier can only feel comfortable lying down. When choosing this option, it is important to correlate the size of the bed with the height of the ceiling.

There are other models created specifically for the parents of two children with a small age difference. The upper tier is designed for an older child and presents a classic look of a bunk bed.The bottom part is a crib, suitable for a baby birth. In addition, a chest of drawers is equipped at the bottom, which is removed as the newborn grows and the bed becomes longer. As psychologists say, this option allows you not to separate the older child from the mother and smooth out the stress from the appearance of the second baby in the family.

If the high sides of the bunk bed are important for the kids, then for older kids it fades into the background. The main thing is becoming a stylish look of the nursery, its comfort. A two-tier transforming sofa is a godsend for parents of younger children.

When folded, the design is no different from the classic comfortable and soft sofa, while unfolded, you can see a vertical steel ladder and sturdy metal fastenings.

The fear of some children to sleep at a height is a real problem that parents sometimes have to face after buying a bed. However, this is not a reason to abandon space saving designs. Today, furniture manufacturers have invented a safe design that is permitted in kindergartens - half-tier or pull-out beds.The lower berth here rolls out from under the upper one. However, they also have a disadvantage, so the mechanisms can not withstand the load from overly active guys who love to jump on their beds.


However, for some rooms and the installation of bunk beds significantly eats space, leaving the minimum area for the playing area. In such cases, help come folding beds or bed-wardrobe.

Manufacturers brought the folding models to perfection, because today they are more popular than ever. Their fastenings are durable, and the structures are not afraid of loads. Their cost is much higher than the usual two-tier models.

Nevertheless, folding beds cause parents and some doubts. For example, there is a fear that the bed in an upright position will fall on the child, unable to bear the load.Manufacturers assure the strength of the models, provided the location of the bed at the main bearing wall.

Save, deciding to buy this practical option is not worth it. The fact is that substandard furniture may eventually begin to loosen and creak.
