Have a bedroom that is not too large but can be used to rest even though the number is more than one person? So the bunk bed is an option to answer that question. The multilevel design makes it take up less space when placed in a small room. The impression of space and relief will be felt even though the room is small in size.
Not only for visiting families, but you can also apply bunk beds to your child’s room. Of course, it’s a bit troublesome to make additional rooms if your house is not too big. Therefore you can get around with bunk beds if you already have more than one child.
Here are tips for choosing a bunk bed
1. Adjust the bunk bed with room conditions
Even though the space used is large or small, you better calculate the floor area and ceiling height of the room first. The height of the bunk bed is also measured so that the upper bunk bed has a distance from the ceiling height. In addition, the floor area is measured so that later you can determine the type of mattress for your bunk bed, whether choosing a single or double mattress type.
2. Adjust the bed with the theme of the room
If you have given this small room a theme, then you can adjust the appearance of the bunk bed to make it look more attractive. For example, the design of this small room has a minimalist theme, then use a bunk bed that has a minimalist design, such as a bunk bed made of wood. The use of color is also very influential so that your room looks more colorful and less monotonous.
3. Choose a bunk bed with the best material
Use a material that is strong and durable considering the human weight is quite heavy. Usually, the material used is wood or iron. For wood, there are two types, namely solid and laminate.
Solid wood which is usually used for bunk beds uses wood such as teak, mahogany, pine, and others. Solid wood has a soft grain and rough knots on the surface of the wood so it can give a warm feeling in the room.
Meanwhile, laminated wood has a slightly lower quality than natural solid wood. However, usually laminated wood is attached to particleboard, a type of rubberwood so that it is not easily warped or damaged. Besides that, laminate wood is very easy to clean.
4. Try to choose a sturdy ladder and bunk beds with protectors
Safety factors must also be considered, such as the side protection frame, as well as the head and toe cap protection frame. This is so that you don’t fall while you are sleeping. Try to choose a height for the frame starting from 25 cm. Also, make sure that the protective frame uses a sturdy material so that it can hold your body.
Do not forget to also pay attention to the stairs leading to the upper bunk bed. Look for a ladder that is not too far apart, with a stable footing and handrail. This is to keep someone who wants to climb the upper bunk from falling.
