My little sister and I shared a room for a LONG time while growing up. And we had bunk beds. White wooden bunk beds. I remember sitting on the top bunk “fishing”. I’d throw down a “rope” and my sister would tie one of our toys to it. I’d pull it up and see what I “caught”…usually followed by laughter. For (what seemed like) hours.
My girls now share a bedroom in our house. And they each have a twin bed. The problem is that the beds don’t bunk properly (few pieces missing…which apparently could be a serious problem). And they are brown with black metal accents (hand-me-down from my brother). And the beds take up so much floor space not bunked. And the girls want to be bunked.
So I’ve started shopping for bunk beds. And I’m trying to find an error in my formula below.
White + Wood + Separates into 2 Beds Later + Good Guard Rail Height + High Weight Capacity on Top Bunk + Can Go and See It In Person = A Freaking Pottery Barn Investment
However, I really do not want anything metal or brown or natural colored. And it really needs to be able to separate into two beds later. We are definitely more long-term investment kind of people. Meaning if we buy these “higher quality” beds, our grandchildren will most likely sleep/bunk in them.
I found a few lower-priced options at places like Penney’s, Target, etc. However, you can’t see them in person (sold online only) and the reviews are ok or non-existent. And they honestly don’t look as nice. So for the risk of them getting delivered and not liking them or having issues putting them together…I’d almost rather pay a bit more to have it all handled by Pottery Barn Kids.
Any other recommendations on where I should look?
Or where did you get your bunk beds if you have them?
Or should I just pull the trigger??
