Loft Bed Definitions

 

Standard Bunk Beds


The Standard Bunk Bed is simply one bed supported over another bed.  It yields twice the sleeping space of a single bed.   The idea is nearly as old as the bed itself.

Stackable Bunk Beds

 The Stackable Bunk Bed separates into two distinct beds. Usually a dowel or pin is used to keep the structure intact while the units are in the stacked position.  The top bed generally is lifted off of the bottom and set on the floor.

Loft Beds  

 Loft Beds are beds elevated from the floor for the purpose of gaining useable space underneath.   Loft Beds can dramatically  increase the useable floor space in a room. Loft beds are a common in dorm rooms and are gaining popularity in apartments and anywhere where space is at a premium. All of the Loft Bed Plans available on our site contain simple instructions for conversion to a Bunk Bed.

Trundle Beds

  This arrangement has been around since ancient times as well. Originally referred to in Old English as a "truckle bed" the trundle is actually any small bed on wheels that usually fits beneath a taller bed.  It can be stowed away when unoccupied and made ready for use at a moments notice.  With the mattress removed, the bed can double as a large drawer for storage of bedding, luggage, off-season clothing, children's train sets or any item that fits.
