My boys have twin beds in their room that could be bunked. We don't have them bunked for several reasons:

1. They would block a window (there are two windows in this corner room).
2. Our ceilings are fairly low (7.5 ft high) and the bunkbeds are full height.
3. I'm worried the kids would get hurt.
4. My kids like to flop on their beds and read. We like to sit on their beds and read to them.
5. Each of their twin beds currently has a set of three drawers that go under them, so each boy uses that as his dresser (enough space for now, but not for when they get older and wear larger clothes).

Obviously there are also many benefits to bunking the beds. Does anyone love their bunkbeds so much that they would try to convince me to try bunking ours?!

Now here's an idea!

We've got a Kura low bunnk (the ikea one) for my 5 & 7 yo's. I wish I'd never bought the thing... several weeks ago my 7yo decided to hang off the side and got his forehead sliced by the ceiling fan blades I've flipped it now. The tent would have prevented him from doing that, and we do have it, but it's a zillion degrees here (give or take) and we don't have central air.. so inside the tent was a mini oven since the fan couldn't circulate
