What to look for when buying a bunk bed with desk

In this part of our guide we will talk about the most important features that you should pay attention to when buying a bunk bed with desk. General features such as materials, warranty, workmanship and delivery will not be particularly emphasized since there are common to all products and not just to the bunk bed with desk.

Storage

What type of storage will be implemented in the bunk bed with desk depends on the manufacturer, so it varies greatly from model to model. These can be shelves, closet, drawers and various pull-out variations. The extra storage space provided by this type of bunk bed is of utmost importance to all those who have little space and few children.

Thanks to the shelves and drawers, you will be able to declutter space, and children will easily find their clothes and books, because everything will be in one place and not scatter around.

Ladders & sliders

Although at first glance all ladders look very similar, there is a big difference between them in terms of safety and how easy it will be for a child to get into bed.

Some models have stairs, which is certainly the simplest and safest option, but it takes up more space. That is why stairs are suitable for younger children, and for older children you can choose ladders. Pay attention to rungs as well, because often rungs have the biggest impact on how safe stairs or ladders are.

Included mattress

Some bunk beds come with a mattress, but most do not have a mattress included. Certain companies offer a discount if you buy a mattress right away, which is definitely an opportunity you should take advantage of, because a mattress is necessary.

In 99% of situations, a single size mattress is needed, and what you need to pay attention to is the weight limit. If it is not clearly stated, ask the manufacturer or retailer whether the weight limit includes a mattress or not. Some mattresses can be very heavy, which can endanger safety.

Tips for buying and using bunk bed with desk

You should buy a bunk bed with a desk from a reputable manufacturer. It is a product that should last for many years, and it must also be very safe, so you do not want to have any durability concerns. We advise you to use every extra space that a bunk bed gives you, because that way you will be able to keep your home neat, even if you live in a small space.  Don’t forget to:

  • Pay attention to the manufacturer and warranty
  • Take advantage of every storage space bunk bed offers
  • Emphasize to the child that he or she must be very careful when climbing and descending and to avoid doing so until he/she is fully awake.
