Sleep well three comfortably in tall, sturdy triple bunk beds with lots of space. Whether you're looking for a super bed suited for triplets, twins, multiple young kids or even friendly sleepovers, and want to maximize the layout of your boys or girls' shared room, the ideal solution is probably a triple bunk bed with stairs. It's ideal for space-saving and looks great, too.
When it comes to triple bunk beds with stairs, there are three main options: pine, oak, and maple. There are a few others, but they're the most common ones, so that's the way to start. All have their good points, and bad points, but overall, each of them will do as described: strong, durable, economical, etc. Here's a quick rundown of the key features of each, along with an overall opinion on each one.
First, on the strong side, are the triple bunk beds with wooden frames. They're built primarily from solid, heavy-duty, solid woods like maple, pine, and ash, and come in a variety of styles and colors. They usually have four adjustable ladders in the middle of the beds themselves and each of the ladders can be "up" or "down" (to the side) as needed. These offer the most room possible inside the confines of a typical sleeping area (which is the reason they're often used for triple bunk beds with stairs).
Second, on the strong side, are the triple bunk beds with metal frames. These can be constructed in a variety of ways, including through the use of simple frames that don't offer much in the way of storage space, and in which the middle "levels" are actually ladders. This type of system can provide a reasonable amount of space, but it's important to remember that the ceiling will always be higher than the ladder. In many cases, this isn't a problem, but if your room is very tall or has slanted ceilings, you may not be happy with this arrangement. The metal frame usually offers less storage space, but can have enough room to get your things out without knocking them down.
Next, on the strong side, are the triple bunk beds with guardrails. Just as with the "upper bunks," guardrails are an important part of creating an effective "catch all" for the bed. If you need the guardrail to support the bed itself, then you'll need to consider how much weight your items will be able to withstand. This is usually dependent on the individual items, but some heavier items (such as books) may require special care to keep out of harm's way.
Lastly, there are also triple bunk beds with just two beds, making for an extremely cost-effective option. Often, these beds will have twin and a full size bunk. These models are generally made so that you only have to pay the cost of the actual mattress and box spring, which make them ideal for young children who still need their own room. Unfortunately, they're not ideal for older kids who still need their own space, but the price difference between the two is usually enough to make up the difference.
Another consideration when selecting triple bunk beds is whether you'd prefer the option of having the ladders directly attached to the lower bunk. Typically, there is a ladder that runs along the top side of the upper beds, providing access to the lower level without needing to go through the middle area. This is an excellent option if you have small children who like to climb up and down the ladder. However, in many cases, it is not practical to have this type of ladder, as it doesn't offer much in the way of storage space. If that is the case, however, you may be able to install shelving or drawers, which can keep small things out of reach of toddlers.
Overall, triple bunk beds with less clearance are a great choice for a kid's bedroom. They allow you to free up valuable floor space, giving you more room to create play areas for your kids. Also, with a little bit of imagination, it's possible to install more shelves or cabinets, allowing you to store items of different types, whether it be books video games, or toys. This is particularly useful in smaller homes where the parents usually spend the most amount of time in the bedroom anyway.
