Double Bunk Beds are an excellent option for children who have lots of sleepovers or for two siblings.

This type of bunk bed features a twin or double bed at the bottom with a single bed at the top. They are also commonly referred to as triple bunk beds.

The bigger lower bunk allows plenty of space for an older child and usually has plenty of under bed storage. The top bunk can either then be used for a younger child or for a friend sleeping over.

What To Consider When Buying A Double Bunk Bed

Safety

There are a number of things to consider when buying a bunk bed. As you or your child are going to be sleeping high off the floor, you need to make sure there is no way of you falling out.

Height of mattress, safety railings, and age of child (high sleepers are unsuitable for children under 6 years of age) all need to be checked and considered.

Durability

You will want a bed which is sturdy, durable and will stand the test of time.

Because of the height of a bunk bed, you want to make sure it is assembled well so that it doesn’t wobble.
