I am seriously wanting to turn our enclosed back patio into a spare bedroom. Sort of a dream right now, but you never know. I personally think Bunk beds would work best. When we have company I would probably move my 2 boys out there so someone could have their room and bathroom. Anyway, I checked MoreBunkBeds.com, one of the Cymax Store, for a bunkbed clearance. While searching I found the Canwood Alpine II Twin over Full Bunk Bed in Espresso. I like the design of this one, along with the price! It would fit in well and has the wood drawers for under the bed. More storage!
I also considered the option of a futon bunk. Both of my boys are getting old enough that they just might prefer sharing the larger futon and allowing someone else to sleep on the top bunk. You just never know for sure with boys. One minute they love a bunk bed and the next they are outgrowing it. You know they stop liking sleeping on the top bunk. I like the Atlantic Furniture Columbia Twin Over Futon Bunk Bed in Caramel Latte. This is a nice option because they can use the futon during the day to sit on and read books or study even if we didn't have guests.
Last I checked on bunk beds with a trundle. I still can't decide for sure. I found the Lea Elite Classics Bunk Bed in Medium Brown Cherry. I really liked this one because of the dark wood and it looked masculine enough for boys. It is also available in twin over full or full over full. Then with the trundle bed available we would have plenty of room for guests. Possibly even the guests could have that room instead of moving the boys. Hmmm. This one is looking better and better.
What do my neighbors think? Which one do you like best? Right now this is just something I would like to do in the future. At this point the boys have to use sleeping bags when someone visits. I think I might have to do some more looking into this. Thanks for your thoughts!
See you next time At the Fence!
