Yes these bunk beds are safe for kids with the use of safety railings. You don’t want them to fall off the top bunk, so if they are at that age, make sure they are safe. Back the beds up against the walls and/or in a corner to maximise space in the room as well as create a safer environment. If the beds appear to get old and rickety, be sure to shore them up or get new furniture. You don’t want to take chances on a collapse. Remember these are bigger and heavier than single bunk beds.
Surprisingly these beds can wear out over time and hard use, with kids climbing and scrambling in and out. Kids just love to jump up and down on the bed, using them as their own personal trampolines when no one is looking. Ensuring they are up to the sturdiness challenge is especially important with younger kids who don’t have a good sense of balance yet and would have trouble getting out of the way quickly if something should fall.
Bunk beds can feel very cozy to those spending the night in them. When pushed against the walls in a corner they are almost their own little private world to dream in. Just be sure they are well constructed and in good repair so your guests or kids can have sweet dreams.
