This sturdy design offers a storage solution that may help to make you feel more comfortable with your child’s desire to sleep six feet off the floor.

Or if you have a smaller home and not enough rooms, this bed could be shared by siblings who need different sized beds and still satisfy the constant nagging for a bunk bed that you have said “no” to purely because of the need for different sizes.
