A triple bed, also known as a triple bunk bed, is a creative solution to a
problem that many parents know all too well: not having enough space for their children to enjoy
When we think of children's furniture, we often imagine every child having their
own and only think about single beds.
However, for a large family, the idea of each child having their own bedroom can
be more of a dream than the actual reality.
If your children do have to share a room, a triple bed can free up more space
for them to play in without feeling crowded.
If you're buying your first triple bunk bed, there are a few things you need to know in order to
get the best experience possible.
First, measurements are truly the key to getting the best triple bunk bed possible. You will
want to measure not only the space that you have the work with, but the total height from ceiling to floor.
This is because there will be a top part of the triple bed where one of the children will be
sleeping. It can become quite uncomfortable for the child on top if there's not enough clearance between the bed
and the ceiling for them to sit up.
Also, you will want to keep in mind the actual construction of a triple bunk bed. Most are
actually made from three twin-sized beds. For younger children, this is the perfect size. Generally, the twin beds
are made from standard sizes so it's pretty easy to use the existing set of sheets you have.
Another point of note is that a triple bunk bed system requires that you sit down with your
children and educate them on the dangers of playing on the beds.
The top bed is generally six feet above the ground. A fall from that height can cause serious
injury, so it's even more critical to make sure your children understand that beds are meant for sleeping and quiet
enjoyment, not highly active play.
It's also important to keep in mind that any triple bunk bed that you end up purchasing will
require some assembly before it's ready for your children to use. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully,
using all the tools the instruction guide directs. It can't be stressed enough to follow the instructions to the
letter on bunk beds for safety purposes.
Many triple bed accidents have been caused by fault assembly where the assemblers rushed through
the process in hopes of getting the bed system built faster.
The better approach is to allot a large chunk of the day to making sure that the triple bunk bed
system is assembled properly, and can handle the weight of each child without collapsing.
The adults involved in the assembly process should test the bed before letting the children
actually use it; if the system can hold an adult, it will comfortably accommodate a child.
A triple bed is actually a great way to make sure that you provide the extra space that your
children need. With the information in this guide, you should have everything you need to purchase a great triple
bunk bed system that will last for many years to come!
