A Look at Wooden Bunk Beds

Wooden bunk beds are a very popular type of bunk bed and have many advantages over metal bunk beds. Specifically, wooden bunk beds are often safer since there is no need to worry about metal or weld cracking.

The main disadvantages of wooden bunk beds are size and bulk. Wood is much thicker than the metal tubing used on beds and, as such, takes up a lot of space and is very heavy. As a result, moving a wooden bunk bed is an ordeal and not something you want to do very often. Likewise, shipping these beds is fairly expensive, although if you buy online and out-of-state, you will save money on sales tax.

Wooden bunk beds are often quite elegant. Many have shelves, drawers and/or desks built right into them, and can be finished in a variety of wood stains. The beds can make a bedroom more appealing to children, who can draw on them, put stickers and hang posters on them, depending upon the desires of their parents.

When selecting a bunk bed, there are many wooden options available to fit the needs of your children and your own stylistic demands. Owning such a bed can prove to be a welcome addition to your home.
