Different Types of Wood Bunk Beds

Mickey | Home Furnishings | Monday, December 6th, 2010

There are several different reasons why a person might purchase a set of wood bunk beds. You might have two children sharing a bedroom and want to conserve space. You might be a college student who wants the extra bed for friends who might stay over and may not be able to accommodate a daybed. You will find several choices in design when shopping for this style of bed. The basic frame style is the one that has a single bed as the top and bottom bunk. The top bunk on the wood frame will have a rail that is attached to it during assembly, to prevent the person sleeping there from rolling over and falling out.

These frames also include a wooden ladder. The ladder might come as a piece that is connected to the top and lower bunks or as a slanted style, which connects only to the top bunk frame. The wood used in the construction of these frames can be oak, pine or cherry. Some variations on the frame could include a trundle style, where the bottom bunk has a platform style base that pulls open to reveal a storage drawer. The loft style design for this bed, has the lower bunk angled as a separate unit from the top and usually includes several drawer units as dressers.

There are also combination styles, where the top bunk is a twin size and the bottom is a full size. The price for a wooden bunk bed will depend on the type of wood used and the features the bed has. A basic pine style with attached ladder can retail for about $600. These frames do not generally include the mattresses you need, so they will be an additional cost to the type of bed you purchase. You can save some money by looking for sale or clearance items from local furniture stores or online.
