In homes where there are more members and less of floor space, bunk beds are very popular. And among bunk beds, Futon bunk beds are becoming more and more popular each day because of the opportunity it provides to sit and sleep in the same floor space. A Futon bunk bed comprises of a bed fitted at the top, with the bottom occupied by a full sized futon, which again may be folded and used as another bed as night. This kind of bed is very useful when you have to accommodate a bed and sofa together, and when one has to stay up at night for work, and requires sitting and working space.
Points to Remember: You may buy a metal or wooden futon bed according to your budget and likes, but there are some things that you should check in all kinds of futon beds and bunk beds.
The entire frame and structure of the bed should be very solid and sturdy, as the bed on the top has to carry a considerable amount of weight. You should also check whether the top bed is perfectly attached to the bed frame.
The ladder to get to the top bed is not an additional gear, separately attached to the bed, but it is in- built, so you should also check if they are solidly built. All these precautions become a necessity if a child is occupying the bed.
The mattress of the bed and the cushions of the futons are not generally included in the price of the bed and they have to be purchased separately. However, some brands do have exciting offers, so you should inquire about them.
Also, you should buy a bunk or a futon bed with guard rails, as an additional precaution, to prevent the person sleeping on top from falling out. The price of the bed depends on the size and the material of the bed.
