In addition, we fit all of our ladders with side handles, a unique feature that makes our ladders more ergonomic than most.
As always, safety is the first priority when it comes to bunk beds. The recommended age for bunk beds according to theAmerican Academy of Pediatrics is 6 and up. If you child is between the ages of 6 and 8, stairs might be the better option in order to prevent any accidents. However, stairs are popular with kids of any age, so there’s no reason to worry about your child outgrowing them just because they’re not in that range anymore.
The main reason for choosing ladders over stairs is that they save a lot of space. If you’re trying to conserve floor space in the room, this might be the way to go. However, if you want the bunk to be the centerpiece of the room and fill more floor space, stairs is a great way to achieve that. Staircases can also be used as storage solutions, so that when they take up space, you get more use out of it.
We always recommend the “try before you buy” method. Schedule a showroom visit and bring your family in to view and test out the different options available. It’s always good to have each kid that will use the bunk bed try climbing into our showroom models using both ladder and stairs before you take them at their word about preference between the two. There are many different types and sizes of stairs available, so it’s important to know what is comfortable for your child, specifically. This way, you’ll not only choose the correct climbing option, but can request any modifications that are needed to make it perfect for your family. Casa Kids creates handmade, custom kid’s furniture so we’re able to craft the perfect ladder rungs, handles, stairs, and storage options for each family’s needs, and will even make suggestions based on our decades of experience.
