Bunk Beds vs. Trundle Beds

When it comes to space-saving sleep strategies, the ultimate showdown pits trundle beds vs. bunk beds (because <a title="Murphy Beds" href="http://www.atgstores.com/furniture/bedroom-furniture/beds-mattresses/beds/type/murphy-beds/" target="_blank">Murphy beds</a> are on a whole other level).</br></br>They’re both great options for packing a lot of coziness into the corner of a room, but they both have their ups and downs – quite literally in the case of bunk beds, in fact. And, these are the kinds of things you need to consider when you’re trying to decide what’s best.</br></br><strong>Bunk Beds: Crazy, Cozy Adventure</strong></br></br>If a bunk bed and trundle bed were partners in a buddy cop movie, the bunk bed would definitely be the loose cannon. Things start to get a little crazy any time you have to climb a ladder to get into the sack.</br></br>But, there is some appeal to it. <a title="Bunk Beds" href="http://www.atgstores.com/furniture/bedroom-furniture/beds-mattresses/beds/type/bunk-beds/" target="_blank">Bunk beds <em>are</em> fun</a>, and they leave room for under-bed storage that doesn’t come with the trundle bed.</br></br>That said, they’re not for everybody. Anxious parents with anxious kids might not feel comfortable with them, which is totally fine. Some people are scared of heights and others are scared of falling, and neither is fun when you’re feeling it in the top bunk.</br></br><strong>Trundle Beds: Smart, Conservative Sleeper</strong></br></br>A lot of people think the pencil-pushing cop is soooooo boring, but he’s the one who always saves the loose cannon’s bacon in the end!</br></br>That’s not to say <a title="Trundle Beds" href="http://www.atgstores.com/furniture/bedroom-furniture/beds-mattresses/beds/design_features/trundle/" target="_blank">trundle beds are more reliable</a>, but they are a more conservative design and that can be a benefit in transitional rooms when the kid décor and playful vibe starts to get phased out for a more adult feel.</br></br>Plus, they’re typically more age-friendly. Anyone from Generation X or beyond who tries to get into a bunk bed is risking an injury. That’s what makes trundle beds an arguably better pick for a guest room, while bunk beds will remain in the kids’ domain.</br></br>But, to each their own! If you can’t decide, you can always get a <a title="Bunk Bed/Trundle Bed Combo" href="http://www.atgstores.com/products/default.aspx?tid=1034&amp;atb=design_features=trundle-bed-available~type=bunk-beds" target="_blank">trundle bunk bed</a>, because of course that’s a thing. Yay!
