My sister and I spent many years when we were little trying to convince our parents to get bunk beds. Scurrying up and down a ladder, storing copies of TOTP under the bunks and creating a 'den' were our main reasons for wanting one. Unfortunately, our house suffered from low ceilings, so it was never really an option.
Which is a shame, as bunk beds tend to save a lot of room in bedrooms, thanks to the extra space freed up from the extra bed or storage. The Alaska Highsleeper on the right is great for one child as you can store all the toys away at night, and costs £399. As your child gets older there is plenty of room to fit their first computer.
