I'd really like to get my girls bunk beds...but, they have to be on the affordable side.  I was just wondering...if you're kids have bunk beds, what kind?  Was it affordable?  Does it seem sturdy...do you like it?  Any tips?

Yes we have bunks. I bought mine just this past winter for $133. plus $27 delivery by fed ex from New York to Wisconsin.  They are solid wood and come apart into two twin beds.  Whats interesting though is now they are selling the same exact bunk for $549 which is rediculous. I got mine on clearance plus added an online coupon code.

Here's the bunk its now $549 ( which it isnt worth that much, its only worth about what I paid)

And here is our bed - ours is missing the middle brace on the top bunk because the scew kept coming out.  Sure its worth the $166 but deff not worth more than that. It hold up finde and the wood is solid but it was a pain to put together with nothing but allen wrenches.

 My boys have bunk beds, but they have their own rooms, so their beds are apart and we've never used them as bunk beds. They just both needed beds at the same time and bunk beds were the most economical way since we found them at a furniture store that was going out of business and got them for $300.

I have bunk beds for my boys. They are solid oak,very sturdy and can be seperated in to individual beds. We bought them at Raymour and Flanigan. I believe about $700. We made payments over a 12 month period,no interest.

our set is a solid cherry one from a local mattress store

 the set was $700, plus matresses. they have had them for 2 years. and despite being whaylayed by metal airplanes, and dinosors, jumped on, and what not. 

 i asked family to chip in in lew of presents so i could get a better set

avoid bunk beds that have a straight up and down ladder ,we had one that was round and metal and it hurt the feet to go up and  down the ladder so they were climbing it unsafely to avoid the ladder and so was i when i had to change the sheets lol

Quoting PinkParadox:




Not sure how to copy and paste, but, these look like the Walmart bunks my neighbor got for her girls. $198, I believe. The beds come apart for 2 twin beds too, so, really versatile. If I had same sex kids, I'd get it in a heartbeat. Her kids are tough on the set and it's going well for 3 years now.
