Planning a home improvement to the children's room
Are you planning to remodel your children's room any time soon? What ever you do, you need to make sure that the room looks good and fits their personality. You should also think about their safety when it comes to replacing things. When it comes to remodeling the rooms for the children, parents tend to purchase the bunk beds, but you really shouldn't and here's why.
Did you know that each year at least 15 kids go to the ER because they fell off the top bunk? The injuries are minor, but they are serious accidents. Also, think about when your children are playing around. What if one pushes the other off and the fall down and get hurt. Even though when you want to redo a room, you want to give your children more space in their room, but that does not meant hat you have to purchase a bunk bed.
If their room is too small for two twin beds to be side to side, then you might want to think about not just repainting or decorating the room, but expanding the bedroom. You might want to look into what it would cost you to add on to the bedroom. If you do not think that you would be able to afford it, you may want to think about taking over furniture out so that you do not have to rely on bunk beds.
However, if you truly need to have bunk beds, you should have some type of guardrail on the one side. However, make sure that the guardrails do not have too much space between the mattress and the bed frame so that your child does not end up getting suspended and seriously hurt. Make sure there is a rail on all sides. Also, make sure that there is a ladder attached to the bed at all times so that your children don't have a tendency to jump off.
You may think that avoiding a bunk bed is being too careful, but there are children you have died because they have gotten stuck on the bed, fell off the bed, or squeezed between the wall and the bed. There is no such thing of being over protected. However, it can be a simple solution to a small room, but isn't it worth just expanding anyway?
