fantasy bunk bed,  choosing your child's furnitureg


One of the most magical places on earth for a child is their bedroom. This is a space that takes on many forms and meanings ranging from a special sanctuary when they are in need, to dream land when they are fantasizing about being somewhere far away. When it comes time to decide what you need in choosing your children’s furniture for their room there are many options available out there.

When trying to decide which one is the right one for you, how do you make that choice?

Before beginning this perilous journey you may want to plan out exactly what you need to know based upon an evaluation regarding what your children may want, and ultimately what they need. Unless you are wealthy, which many of use are not, then you will want to make this important investment count, this is furniture that your child may with any luck be using for years to come.

With this in mind it is a good idea to take into consideration that the furniture you are buying today will need to accomplish a variety of tasks. To begin with, how will it fair up against the ultimate test, the test of time. For example, the precious children that you are likely buying this furniture for will likely not be anywhere close in resemblance to that same child who will be using it in ten years.

With this in mind, how will it physically hold up over that time period? In addition to that, will the style or functionality of the item, such as a kids bunk beds, be just as useful at five years old as it will be when they are fifteen years old?

Another important consideration is the expense that this will all cost you. If you are like the millions of other parents out in the world right now who are trying to do the best they can with what they have, then you also do not have the money to go out and completely refurnish a bedroom at the drop of a hat. In order to accomplish this you may want to consider buying each item you need separately as you can afford them.

The main consideration you need to take into account, whether it is purchasing a kids bunk bed or a new dresser, it is going to be a defining place in their lives, one that will live for ever in their memories. They will forever look back on that area and remember something… it is up to you to help shape what that something is.

There's nothing more fun for children and economical for parents than owning a bunk bed. Kids adore playing in and on these beds and the amount of space they save in the room can be used to play more freely, add furniture or simply leave open to give a feeling of spaciousness. Choosing the right bunk bed begins with a fundamental choice between a metal or wood style. Wood tends to have a "warmer" feel and blend well with other wood furniture in the room while metal is more minimalistic yet sleek and unobtrusive. Perhaps equally important is comfortable your children think they'd feel in their new beds because after all, they'll be sleeping in them! Choosing the right style is also a matter of your or your children's needs. Luckily, we carry just about every conceivable arrangement of beds including full over full bunk beds, futon bunk beds, loft beds, desk bed combos and even elaborate models that will ignite your children's imagination! And because every room, style and personality is different, we're pleased to offer our high-quality bunk beds in a variety of colors. Browse through our colorful selections Here.

Bunk beds are more than practical pieces of furniture; they're symbols of bonding and camaraderie between children and adults alike. Sharing a sleeping space has brought brothers and sisters, college students and soldiers together since the beginning of time. A bunk bed is honestly just more fun than a regular bed. Children LOVE climbing the ladder, trading bunks and playing games to which standard beds simply don't lend themselves. Even an adult will admit that there's a certain excitement in ascending the ladder to their top bunk perch.

These beds make a wonderful addition to any home. In contrast with two separate, standard beds, they only occupy the floor area of one bed and efficiently utilize vertical space to remove clutter the room, leaving you free to place other important items in the freed up space, or to simply keep the area open. The gap between the top and bottom bunks also contributes to a feeling of spaciousness that a totally solid object is unable to reproduce.

They come in a wide array of materials, styles, colors and price ranges. Some are wood; some are metal. Some models come with built-in cabinets and drawers; others have a futon for a bottom bunk and yet another model features bunks that are perpendicular to one another.

Well, in case you haven't noticed yet, bunk beds are our overriding passion and we're happy to say that we've now become the #1 online store in the US! We carry just about every type of model you can imagine and our customer support is second to none. We consider it our pleasure to help you find the most high-quality, affordable bunk beds to fit your distinct needs and sense of style.
