When it comes to bunk beds, there are many styles and models to choose from, but which one suits you best? There are many different types of bunk beds to choose from including twin-over-twin, twin-over-full, full-over-full, stairwell, among others. With this in mind, your first Balkenbett  decision must be between choosing a metal frame and choosing a wooden frame.

Most bunk beds

Most bunk beds were originally made out of wood, but lately manufacturers have started to include a wider range of metal frames in their repertoire. You will still see that the majority is made of wood. If you go to a local retail store or shop online, you’ll find that there isn’t a huge selection of metal frames to choose from.

So the question is: metal or wood? This depends on several factors that you should consider before making a final decision. The metal frame offers more support and durability than the wooden frame, but lacks the traditional look and feel of the iconic bunk bed design. Now any type of bunk bed can be made from either wood or metal, so choosing the frame type based on style constraints is not a problem. However, each style has differences based on the material it is made of.

frame is supported

A metal frame supports more weight than the traditional wooden frame, but it also has its shortcomings. The main problem with the metal frames is that they are not as stylish as the wooden frames. With a wooden frame you can have many different designs as well as colors. Unfortunately, most metal bunk beds come in black or white and most share the same design. The other problem comes from the cold feel of the metal. For my part, I like my bed to be warm and comfortable so I don’t want to grab a cold bar when I get up. This is less likely with traditional wooden splints.

However, the traditional wooden constructions also have their weaknesses. As they age, many begin to wear out and chip. This can cause minor irritation and scratches. In addition, the increasing use of the beds over the years can lead to squeaking noises as the joints loosen, which can also lead to wobbling. However, it’s an easy fix to tighten the connection, unless they’re held together by glue, in which case it takes a bit more work.

Each type of frame has its pros and cons, it’s really up to the consumer what style and look they want for their bunk bed. Both the wooden frames and the metal frames last a very long time, but you have to choose between durability and style.

Materials for bunk beds – wood vs. metal

Bunk beds can be made of either wood or metal, or in some (rare) cases a combination of both. Both options have their pros and cons; Wood is definitely a predominant choice among manufacturers, but that doesn’t mean metal bunk beds don’t have a place in the market – quite the opposite.

Metal bunk beds give a modern, contemporary look. They can be made from tubular steel, metal rod or wrought iron, with tubular construction being the most common type found on the market today. High-quality metal products are coated with a so-called powder coating, which is considerably more resistant than traditional paints and offers much better resistance to scratches, chips, UV damage  Balkenbett  and rust. It also looks great, although the finish reportedly tends to rub off for a while when the product is new.

Relatively simple shape

Because metal allows for relatively easy shaping, many modern metal bunk beds feature appealing curved shapes that add to their appeal. They are also slightly cheaper in price, partly due to lower production costs and partly due to their simplicity; Metal bunk beds generally come with fewer optional items and additions than their wooden counterparts, and of course that shows in the price.

Wooden bunk beds now represent well over three quarters of the bunk bed market and as such come in a greater variety of styles, shapes and configurations and also offer more optional elements: stairs, ladder types, under-bed sleeping/storage units, drawers etc.
