Wall beds, also known as Murphy wall beds are cut into a wall and are able to fold up into the wall when not in use. These beds can range from double sized beds to full king sized beds. There really is no limit to the size of bed you are able to have installed into a wall, although the wall does need to be thick enough to have a section of it removed, otherwise it is not possible to have the bed folded up into it.
Futon Bunk Bed -- a combination of a futon (also referred to as a sofa bed convertible) with a regular twin size bed stacked on top of it. The top bed is most of the time used as a primary sleeping area, while the Western style futon sofa below serves as a leisure place, but can also be turned into a full size bed if needed. Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
Beds for children tend to change as they age, so why are so many parents surprised when their kids ask them for new furniture once they reach that certain age? Maybe the twins no longer want to share a double bed, and the time comes when brother and sister not only need new bedroom furniture, but also need separate rooms!
The first thing to determine is how much space you want the bed to take up. There are many bunk beds for kids that are designed to be space economical, while many other beds are large, luxurious affairs that use a lot of space. Knowing how much room space you want your kids' bunk bed to occupy can help you make the right decision, as you need to know how much space to leave on either side as well as above the top bunk of the bed.
There are many types of beds to choose from, and it is vital that you know which is best for your children's rooms. The basic beds are usually two simple twin sized beds, one on top of the other. Some beds come as a twin size mattress on top, and a single or double mattress on the bottom. Loft beds are usually single beds over a place to store books and toys, or some come with a single bed over a futon. Some beds even offer three tiers, and these are great if you have three children of similar age sharing a room.
