Triple bunk beds are nice bedroom necessities, particularly for children.
The triple bunk beds are sturdy and strong. All children must be feeling the joy of sleeping on his or her bunk bed. The following are some simple but effective plans for such bunk beds.
Simple Frame Bunk Beds
This cheap triple bunk bed is among the simplest ones. It possesses very simple rectangular structure which has even support pillars and frames. If you wish to learn how to make triple bunk beds, this is probably one of the best plans you can consider implementing. This is because it is very easy to do and does not entail a lot of complications.
The whole unit bunk bed stands on 4 supports that are joined together by 3 frames, which holds the bed mattresses at various levels. The 3 flat frames in which the mattress is placed have a rectangular cube shape. The mattress fits perfectly into the cube frame. The cube frame’s upper edge protrudes out just a little bit above the mattress in order to prevent its user from rolling out while he or she is asleep on the bed.
The triple bunk beds which contains a total of three mattresses, with one placed on top of another, happens to be the least expensive of all and is usually made from two materials; iron and wood.
Today, furniture and hardware shops offer kits or even disassembled kinds of bunk beds from which one can use to make his or her own bunk bed.
There are two fast ideas. First, create supports for your bunk by fixing slanted units onto the bottom by using nails because these beds usually have a very bad gravitational center, and when pushed by applying a powerful and strong force, there is a probability that the entire unit will topple over.
Secondly, the kids’ triple bunk bed is usually quite bulky, and therefore, ensures that the unit is assembled right in the room where it is supposed to be. Transferring this bunk bed into the appropriate room after it is assembled is not so easy. Also ensure that you find a very secure, able and strong triple bunk bed ladder.
L-Shaped Triple Bunk Beds
At times, the room may not be tall enough to accommodate the triple bunk bed as comfortable as possible. In a situation like that, you can adopt the L shape; in which case one part will hold two beds while the other part will hold the third bed at the upper level. The lower level of the portion can also be designed to create a set of drawers or a desk so as to save on space.
Aside from the L shape, you can also employ a T shape in which the bottom bunk is placed to lie in a perpendicular angle to the two upper portions which lie parallel to each other. A triple bunk bed doesn’t save on space but is usually used so as to create storage places and drawer within the bunk bed. This type of bunk bed plans, which are meant for children, can also be employed both for double or twin bunk beds. Remember that these kinds of beds are very bulky and transferring them after they are assembled and installed is not easy. The cost of material for these beds is a bit expensive.
Creative 3 Level Bunk Beds
Triple bunk bed designs entail a series of creativity. Within the simplest designs, you are limited to only a single set of drawers below it; otherwise there is no other alteration. Most of the T shaped and L shaped kind of bunk beds may be designed to be used as wardrobes, extra drawers and even some small desks. Some manufacturers of these beds have gone as far as introducing house shaped or castle shaped beds. These beds are quite bulky as already mentioned and they also occupy some good space.
Foldable loft beds and sofa beds have become more popular. Triple bunk beds require planning and the room where it is to be placed must be measured to determine the right size of bunk bed to be used. Visit several websites and furniture shops to have an idea of the wide range of products available, before you finalize the design.
