Bunk beds were conceived to create more space. They were created to allow two individuals to slumber in the same room without having to share a bed. The stacked design allows for more floor space. Full over full bunk beds solve space issues like no other bed. Unlike traditional bunk beds, which put a twin size bed over a twin size bed, full over full bunk beds feature a full size bed over a full size bed.

Because twin over full bunk beds are full size beds, these are also a good solutions for adults who need to share space, but not the same bed.

Safety is a concern when shopping for full size bunk beds and you’ll want to consider that when trying to save money. Don’t let your desire to shave the price down lead you to purchase something poorly constructed. Make sure that the mattress fits tightly into the frame. There should be less than an inch between the mattress and the frame at any point around the perimeter of the mattress.
Also, test out the ladder. Ensure that climbing up and down the ladder to get into and out of the top bunk is easy. Remember that a lot of the scrambling on that ladder will take place in the dark, when you’re not fully awake.

You shouldn’t allow more than one person on the top bunk at any time. It isn’t safe.
