Well, if the apartment is large enough, there is the possibility to equip everyone with not only a sleeping place, but also a personal "working" space.

  • appearance - the furniture is chosen in such a way that the children like it, as much as possible corresponds to the style of the nursery, if there has already been made repairs. Otherwise, the design of the premises will have to be "adjusted" to the purchased cot;
  • security - it is above all. The scaffold should not be excessively slippery, ideally - be inclined, sufficiently thick, frequent steps. The upper tier is preferred with rim protectors against falling. The presence of at least one handrail is welcome, for which you can hold on ascending;
  • a smell - if from a product it is bad, unpleasantly, sharply smells, to get it it is not necessary. Over time, with a change in humidity, air temperature, the "fragrance" will only increase, and the evaporation of harmful substances can seriously disturb the immunity of those who will sleep on such a bed.

The building is completely without legs, it is convenient for the smallest ones, but then you need to pick up a thick enough mattress, think about additional floor heating.

Minimalism отличается максимально простыми контурами, ограниченным числом цветов, практически полным отсутствием декора. Кровать будет строгая, но изысканная, предпочтительно встроенная, с однотонным пастельным бельем, лестницей четкой правильной формы, без каких-либо лишних деталей, вставок. Вся остальная мебель в комнате тоже подбирается крайне простая, лучше матовая, однотонная, без «наворотов». В данном интерьере удобно обустроятся дети разного пола, возраста. Приветствуется небольшое количество ярких цветовых акцентов, предпочтительны сочетания черного с белым, желтого с фиолетовым, оранжевого с зеленым.

Location of tiers

The "floors" of the bed are located one above the other or with a shift to the side - then under the upper tier there is a built-in wardrobe, a work place for the child. If there is enough space, the lower bunk is perpendicular to the top bunk - cross to the cross. The two-storeyed construction should be chosen so high that from the top bunk to the ceiling there was at least a meter, it was comfortable to sit under it, to clean up the bed. The lower floor is wide, foldable, in its place often is the "study" of the child. Also from under the lower crib can be put forward an additional part, making the space double.

Bunk beds for two children

When children of different ages, the younger child usually sleeps on the lower shelf. To save space, the structure is equipped with drawers under the bottom of the lower berth. If the ladder is made with spans, the boxes are located there. Under the upper "floor", compact storage spaces are also made. The bed can perform the function of zoning - on each side of it there will be separate gaming, workplaces for each of the children. If children are of different sexes, they are already more than seven years old, then separate rooms for changing clothes should be equipped in the room.

There are such structures, where the height of the second "floor", the length of both is adjustable - the cot grows with the children. In some models, one or both shelves can rise vertically to the wall in the daytime - like in a train, at night being used for sleeping. The lower daytime "turns" into a table, a folding narrow sofa. If there are three children, there is an additional plane under the lower bunk.

  • vertical - does not take unnecessary place, but the most traumatic;

  • with the "podium" - has drawers under every step, even a baby can climb it.

The cot, ladder must withstand the weight of any adult person - up to 150 kg. Parents periodically have to climb there to remove toys, to change bed linens, etc. Children's furnishings should avoid any sharp angles - they are the most traumatic. When buying any furniture you need to carefully inspect, check all the fasteners, moving parts - the quality of the connection of parts directly depends on the safety of operation of the product. The space around the bunk bed, just in case, should be covered with thick soft rugs - this will reduce the likelihood of serious injuries from falling from the top bunk. Fireproof furniture covers are also offered by most manufacturers.

"Color safety" is a modern term, meaning that the coloristic decoration of the interior should be as harmonious as possible, not irritating, soothing. The shades are chosen taking into account children's preferences, because they, rather than their parents, will have to live there.
