Kids and bunk beds, they go together as well as peas and carrots. Part camp, part slumber station, the bunk bed was created to save space for large families, but became synonymous with adventure and imagination. First dibs for the top bunk typically goes to the older sibling, with the cozy confinement of the bottom bunk providing a secure night’s sleep for the younger brother or sister.
Today, bunk beds are the inspiration for space-saving furniture that now includes workstations, studies and storage. Once used to squeeze more than one child into a small space, the second child is more and more replaced by all the accessories a child has in today’s hi-tech world. Whether for function, style, convenience, or fuel for a child’s imagination, bunk beds are always being reinvented and are just as likely to be found in a large family home as a cramped city apartment.
