When two beds are arranged one over the other with a small set of stairs to access the top level, they are referred to as bunk beds. A bunk bed is the best kind of bed frame to use in homes where there is lack of space and more than one kid. This type of bed frame plays a major role in bedroom decorating concepts for it allows home owners to get two beds in the place of one. It allows greater utilization of space not only in kids bedrooms but also in dormitories of hostels, trains, ships and other places where space is a constraint.
For those who wish to make their own bunk beds, there are many different plans that they can use as long as they have the right material. There are several design variations of bunk beds too like the traditional double beds, contemporary style wooden loft beds or bunk beds with innovative trundle designs. Metal or wood are the popular materials to make bunk beds.
