Today, as I was laying on the bottom part of my bunk bed, I noticed a beam on the underside of the top bunk that seemed to have no place being there, so I tried to find out what it was. I soon discovered it was to support the bed after it promptly collapsed on me. FML

A bed is a bed, the only difference between a regular bed and a bunk bed is the design, and I fail to see how the design of a bed, unless it's specifically for a young child, changes the age restrictions. You also don't know their circumstances, they could be an adult who uses a bunk bed to conserve space. They could live in a dorm. I believe some military quarters use bunk beds as well. You really shouldn't judge.

I had a bunk bed until I was 16. The bottom part was a futon, and the top a normal twin mattress. I loved it, and would still have it at almost 19, for the convenience of a couch in my room... There is no age to a bunk bed.


Yes, they have bunk beds in some dorms. I live in Canada, and we have them here sometimes, maybe it's different with different countries. They use them because, especially since depending on the layout of the dorm, sometimes they can't fit 2 twin beds in the room, so they use bunk beds because they stack and give more space.

My husbands cousin is 21 and has a bunk bed. It works perfectly fine, and doesn't cost anything. As a university student, I think not spending money on a new bed because a bunk bed may be too juvenile, is a higher priority than spending money on a new bed because a bunk bed may be too juvenile.
