Bunk Bed Adventures

Bunk beds are one furniture purchase the whole family usually agrees on. Parents love their space-saver convenience; kids love their versatility as a fort, pirate ship or tent. However, their stackable structure also makes them a potential hazard. Nearly 36,000 kids each year are treated for cuts, bruises, fractures and even brain trauma due to bunk bed-related accidents. Adults are, sometimes, victims as well.
If you have a bunk bed, make sure the guardrail is secure enough to prevent falls and the bed’s supporting structures are properly secured with nuts and bolts or other fasteners. Even with a strong structure, make sure children play safe on and around the bed.
