A bunk bed is a great way the sleep your kids, but a bunk bed with trundle is a great way to sleep the kids and their friends who come to stay! But how do you know which one to get?
The bed market has gone mad. It seems that interior designers have nothing else to do except create more and more variations of beds and trundles. This is great when you know exactly what you want, but if you are still working out your choices, it is simply terrifying.
Here are our top things to consider when buying a bunk bed with trundle best bunk beds from Furniture UK:
1. The bunk bed has got to look good and be sturdy. Buying a bed is a big investment and it costs a lot of money, so you want something which will look good for a long time. This means buying something solid. There is not better product tester than kids. You simply cannot stop them from discovering limits. The advantage of wood is that even with the knocks it will get it will always look good. In fact they often look better when they have been ‘worn in’.
2. The trundle has got to fit easily under the bed and be well made with good wheels and a proper mattress. It is important to have a good quality trundle. Firstly you want it to be easy enough to get in and out without straining your back, running over your toes, or squashing your fingers. Secondly you want it to be comfortable. I am a big believer that when it comes to buying beds you should always buy something which you are prepared to sleep on. Hopefully you will not need to, but as a principle it is a good one. It is pointless having extra sleeping capacity if you are embarrassed by its level of comfort.
3. The trundle should pop up. Although you can get perfectly comfortable trundle beds which do not pop up, I think that popup are essential. The reason for this is simple. As I have got older I have done my time camping and sleeping on air beds. In my books a bed should look and feel like a bed, and a mattress in a drawer which pulls out from under a bed just doesn’t feel right to me. So following my principle that I only buy beds which I would be prepared to sleep in, means that I only buy popup trundles.
Now you may be wondering whether it is really worth the money to buy such and expensive bunk bed with trundle. The answer is simple; of course it is. The reason for this is simply because if you buy quality you can always get back on your investment. Whether you use it to furnish a rental property or you sell it when you have finished with it, there is one thing for sure, good furniture doesn’t get scrapped and there are always people who will want it from you. So yes, you will be spending money now, but you will get years of use from it and at the end it will still have a financial value.
