Metal bunk beds are often preferred for their durability and long life. Bunk beds come in many types along with the standard ones, some of which are the twin over, loft beds and L shaped beds. The standard types of bunk beds are the usual ones with two beds stacked together one on top of the other with mattresses of the exact same size.
The twin over type beds are also quite similar, only that the bottom part is a queen size bed and the upper portion is a twin size bed. Loft beds are designed to accommodate a single person and have the bed on top with the bottom space empty which can be used for storage or as a writing desk. Many also have additional or spare beds at the bottom along with a little free space and are very suitable for small spaced rooms.
