The bunk bed is a great way to maximize space and actually for the minimalist bedroom design and also all kids love this bed. This gives them the opportunity to share, explore and have adventures while they all get ready to sleep.
The bunk bed changing bedtime feared being fun. But before starting all the fun, you have to make sure if the bed you purchase is safe for your little children.
In the first thing, you have to make sure is that the products you intend to buy a standard followed with the country consumer product safety commission. The main feature that won’t steer you wrong is purchasing a bed that has a solid wood construction.
Better yet, construction solid wood, such as Maple, or oak. The harder wood beds, a strong will and the longer it will last on you.
In General, the bunk bed made from solid hardwoods will be higher priced than the products that use the compound or veneers. However, wood is the material of the compound you will have a lower weight capacity and will not be durable solid wood constructed bed.
Trade-offs is quality and longevity. You pay a little more now but you have peace of mind that it will not disconnect you in years (especially with children).
Weight capacity is very important (especially with children). Children love playing on their bed, and play normally means being in the same bed together, rough-housing, or skipping. Once again, stronger bunk bed capacity higher weight will have. Weight capacity for a twin-sized bed is about 300 lbs. and 400 lbs. for full size.
Yet there are companies such as MaxTrix Furniture Children stating their beds up to 800 lbs. weight pressure. This is again due to the fact that they are using 100% solid Maple, Birch and Aspen. When choosing a bunk bed, you have to make sure there are no gaps or openings larger than 9 inches or smaller than 3.5 inches.
For the bunk beds height, between the top mattress and the top of the guard rail should be at least 5 inches. To the bed above it is important that the bulge is not higher than 5 inches on the bed post to counter the risk of strangulation.
Also, make sure the paint and finish that was used contain no lead whatsoever, and is not toxic. Make sure you avoid products that use plastic Phthalates in them.
