Types of Loft Bunk Beds
Loft bunk beds are not just for kids anymore. They can double the amount of sleeping space and they make an ideal solution for small bedrooms and spare guest room. Bunk beds are available in a variety of sizes and configurations designed to work in all interior and living space.
Loft bunk beds, the traditional one-piece frame that supports two twin-size mattresses stacked on top of each other. It may have storage drawers built in under the bottom mattress. A ladder or steps connected to the frame provides access to the top bunk. The top storey must have a guard rail along each side of the bed that rises at least 5 inches above the top of the mattress. The wall side must have a continuous rail, while the side that opened into the room can have a 15-inch gap to allow access to the person sleeping in the top bunk.
Older children and teenagers often appreciate the space a loft bed allows them in their bedroom. A loft is the top bed elevated as traditional bunk bed but the lower space is open for storage or other uses. A two-storey loft bed provides two beds, but instead of having them stacked on top of each other, the beds are at right angles. This style of loft bed still provides extra storage space. Loft bunk beds are available with twin, full and queen mattresses.
