Here are some ideas for beds for children that might go some way towards easing the situation. You have a choice between three fundamental types of bed: bunk beds, single beds and doubles. Your choice may be influenced by the space available in the bedroom, and also by how many rooms you have and the children you have.
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.
Most children love bunk beds, and the problem is generally not whether they like them or not, but the fight over who gets the top bunk. You have a number of options with bunk beds: they can be twin over twin, twin over full or full over full according to how many kids you have to accommodate.
If you have the space, then full over full is best because each child has more room, and sleepovers are easier to organize. In fact, a twin over full takes up much the same room as a full over full, and the Classics 4.0 version of the latter comes at 84" long, by 60" deep and 79" high. This is part of Universal's Smartstuff Youth collection, and is available in white or saddle brown wood. Optional underbed storage units are also available.
If you have children who share a bedroom together, but who also happen to be very far apart in their ages, then a twin over full bunk bed is a great way to consolidate space while giving each child a bed that meets all their comfort requirements. A twin over full bunk bed is exactly as it sounds, it's a twin bed on top of a larger, full-sized bunk bed sitting below. Of course, a twin over full bunk bed is also perfect for single children as well - as it provides a fun and convenient sleeping space for friends during sleepovers.
