Bunk beds are a wonderful option for families with numerous children or for those who want extra sleeping space for sleepovers. Not only are they functional, but bunk beds are also quite affordable and come in a range of styles and materials, allowing you to choose the best option for your family needs. Last but not least, bunk beds free up space and allow for more floor space for all your kids’ belongings. If you don’t have a lot of room to work with, this is definitely the way to go. We offer a wide array of bunk beds in all different styles, colors, and configurations, so check them out today!

One of the reasons bunk beds have been so popular over the years is because of the excitement they create in children. Look at this way – bunk beds moonlight as indoor playground equipment. OK, that may be going a little far, but the fact of the matter is that children love climbing and monkeying around on bunk beds. This can make parents a little nervous, to say the least.

The potential risk of bunk beds should in no way deter you from investing in them, it should only encourage you to focus on safety and make sure your kids know what is acceptable behavior and what is dangerous. Both kids and adults should know bunk beds safety, which is why we thought it would be a good idea to give you a few tips on how to reduce the risk of bunk bed accidents:

  • Make sure you follow instructions when assembling – Failing to do so could cause problems with the construction and stability of the bed
  • Do not allow any children under the age of 6 to sleep on the top bunk – Young children are more apt to fall off of the top bunk
  • Use only mattresses recommended by the manufacturer – A mattress that is too small could leave gaps on the side, opening the door for suffocation
  • Make sure there are no openings in either level of bunk that are large enough for a child’s body to fit through – If children notice a gap, they may try and stick their head, arm, leg, or other body part through it and become stuck
  • Discuss proper usage and safety concerns with your children – It is imperative that your children understand how to properly get in and out, and use, the bunk bed
  • Pick the right spot – never put the bed near a ceiling fan – You do not want to risk your child standing up on the top bunk and hitting the ceiling fan
  • Set up a night light near the ladder – This will help them get up and down more safely
  • Put the bed in a corner – This will save space and prevent accidents
  • Check the structure for any cracks, loose screws, or weak points – If you notice any cracks or spots that appear weak, contact the manufacturer right away and do not let your child use the bed
  • Put up guardrails on both sides of the top bunk – This will protect them during the night
  • Show your kids how to use the ladder – In doing so, the risk of injury will be lower

Bunk beds are a wonderful option for children as they grow and get into their teenage years, but it is imperative that both you and your children understand how to use a bunk bed safely. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mom’s Bunk House.
