Children and even some adults love bunk beds. There are several things to consider, however, when deciding to put multiple bunk beds in one room. The size of the room, the intended occupants and safety concerns are all considerations one should take into account before deciding where these beds are placed.
Among the more obvious considerations when installing more than one bunk bed in a room is the size and shape of the room. Is the set up intended for full time or part time use? How many people must it accommodate?
Who sleeps in the bed
Is this arrangement something for a child’s permanent sleeping arrangement or a temporary sleeping alternative? Are adults going to use the room in a weekend camp or is this intended as a permanent bedroom for a family’s children?
Certain potential problems are associated with bunk beds that are place too closely to one another. Rambunctious children may decide to jump from one bed to the other causing serious injuries. Consider such possibilities when deciding on bed placement and arrangement. Also, make sure everyone has easy access to the room exits in the event of an emergency.
Bunk beds are an ideal solution for sleeping a large number of people in relatively small places. They can add interest as well as functionality to a room. When deciding how to arrange multiple bunk beds, however, one must take into mind a variety of considerations. These considerations vary according to the room’s intended occupants.
