In children's rooms often set a bunk bed to save space. The kids love to climb to the second tier, and in addition to its primary function of bunk bed performs the function of trainer.
It is convenient to install a children's bunk bed above the cupboard or ottoman in the event that there is one child in the room. In this case, the sleeping place will not occupy extra space, and the room will have considerably more space for children's games.
If there are two children, and a lower tier is required, then modern models of double-decked beds-transformers are ideal for you. The lower tier of these beds can be transformed into a desk, or a sofa with a backrest, and below the lower tier there are several spacious drawers that can be used to store bedding or toys.
The side walls of these beds are usually shelves or lockers, they are very convenient to store books and textbooks, if one child is a schoolboy. When choosing a bunk bed, special attention should be given to its safety. The most common injuries that a child can get on a two-tier bed are injuries associated with the stairs. Therefore, the ladder should be chosen especially carefully.
Best will stop at the option of the inclined ladder, which is installed on either side of the crib. Special attention should be paid to the ways of the fasteners (they should be simple and reliable). Don't forget the little balcony.
The upper tier of the bed must protect the fence with a height of at least 30 cm (the sides of the second floor must be high if your child sleeps restlessly so that there is still a door in the stairway opening.The bed must withstand all your child's friends when they get there to play) . Children's furniture should not have sharp edges and corners. It should be safe, strong and comfortable. It should be easy to wash.
The best material from which a bunk bed can be made is a natural tree of solid wood (to keep the mattress firmly in place). Although, plastic is also acceptable. It is worth to be afraid of chipboard, because this material is not only that it is not strong, it is also toxic (contains formaldehyde). Also beds from the metal profile are not desirable, because the metal is first, cold, and in the second may have sharp corners, which can cause serious injuries.
Another important detail, the choice of which must be approached no less thoroughly - the mattress on which your baby will sleep. Of course, it is better to choose a natural filler in combination with orthopedic springs. In case your child is allergic, orthopedic mattresses with polyurethane foam filling (this is an environmentally friendly synthetic filler) will suit you.
When choosing a children's bunk bed, remember that for your child - this is the place where he should feel comfortable and safe, and therefore the choice should be made not only in accordance with the needs and considerations of safety, but also in accordance with the wishes and requests of the baby .
