Classic, simple and easy to maintain, bunk beds in natural maple are a great way to give any bedroom a naturally rustic feel to it. Additionally, the very nature of bunk beds indicate that they'll endure rougher and tougher treatment versus conventional beds. Bunk beds in natural maple are tough enough to handle all be the roughest bounces, jumps and leaps, while at the same time attractive enough as to easily fit into and compliment any bedroom in which it is placed.
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.
Twin over Twin -- also known as a single bunk bed or standard bunk bed, this is still the most popular configuration out there. As the name implies, a twin/twin bunk bed consists of two twin size (39 x 75 inches) beds stacked on top of one another. Most of the time it can be found in kids' bedrooms, and it is largely used to accommodate two children of roughly the same age. The majority of bunk beds of this type can be split into two separate units, which adds some practical value to the concept.
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!
Before shopping for a mattress you need to arm yourself with pertinent information. First determine what type of bed is best for you. Do you like soft or hard beds? Would you prefer a standard mattress or a foam mattress? If you are not sure, go try out a few different mattress types. Second, consider your budget. This is not a purchase you want to scrimp on, as a poor night's sleep can affect your whole day. Try to get as much value as you can for your budget. Finally, size is a very important factor especially if there is more than one person sleeping in the bed. Ideally, you should both be able to lie on the bed with your arms behind your heads and not touch. A bed needs to be 10-15 cm longer than the tallest person sleeping in that bed. Also pay attention to the height. Lower beds can be easy to get into but harder to get out of. High beds can be hard to get into, especially for shorter people, but very easy to hop out of in the morning.
