Bunk Beds Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Best Bunk Bed Stores

If you're looking to conserve space, yet help your children get a good night's sleep, a bunk bed might be right for you. Alternatively, many students heading off to college are looking for a space-saving alternative for their dorm rooms. Bunk beds enable them to make the most of their limited floor space.

A bunk bed is a type of bed in which one frame is stacked on top of the other. These frames can be stacked directly over each other or in an L-shape to provide additional space under the top bunk for a desk or play area. Often bunk beds are used in small areas, such as dorm rooms, children's rooms, hostels, and so on.

Wayfair

WAYFAIR Visit Site

Cost:

From $345 to $1,629

Return
Policy:

Customers may return bunk beds for any reason within 30 days for an exchange or refund of the purchase price, excluding shipping and handling. If a product arrives damaged, or Wayfair made an error, they will pay for the items return and send a replacement.

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Wayfair sells an impressive array of 35 brands of bunk beds, including Alligator Enterprise, Berg Furniture, Coaster, Lawrence Home Fashions, University Loft, Serta, and Lea. They list 130 different twin-over-twin beds, 74 twin-over-full bunk beds, and they also have full-over-full bunk beds, futon bunk beds, and extra long twin bunk beds.

With a very customer-focused website, you can easily search through the long list of available products that Wayfair offers. In fact, you can browse for bunk beds using any of the following categories: wooden beds, metal beds, boy's beds, girl's beds, unisex beds, bunk bed sizes, futons, t-shaped beds, triple beds, shipping speeds, prices, or bunk bed height. You can also create a "super search" that uses as many of these specifications as you want.

Another great thing about the Wayfair website is its comparison feature, which provides a clear chart that you can use to compare two or more beds. This chart lists all of the beds' features side-by-side. Finally, the Wayfair Advice Central feature provides extra information on topics like safety tips and choosing the right bed.

Wayfair offers free shipping on almost all of their bunk beds. If you desire, in-room assembly is an additional option you can choose. With a strong customer support service, you can quickly reach a representative during their posted hours of operation using a convenient toll-free number. Alternatively, you can email them your questions and receive a response back within 24 hours. You can also sign up for the Wayfair Deal-Alert email.

Wayfair has a very customer-friendly return policy. If you're not happy with your purchase for any reason, you can return or exchange it within 30 days, for a full refund, minus shipping and handling. This is a very good policy that we wish more companies would adopt.

Based on their selection, competitive pricing, easy-to-use website, and impressive customer service, Wayfair has earned our highest rating.

Cymax

CYMAX Visit Site

Cost:

From $339 to $2,765

Return
Policy:

Cymax accepts returns within 30 days on most brands. Customers will be charged for shipping and may be charged a restocking fee.

If you are looking for a variety of bunk beds, Cymax might be the company for you. They sell 12 different bunk bed brands including Atlantic Furniture, Berg Furniture, Lea, Linon, Powell Furniture, Standard, University Loft, and Vaughan Bassett. The website is also pleasing to the eye and well-organized. You can search for a product by size, price, color, or material. When a bunk bed has been selected, the website provides a list of "we also suggest" recommendations. The list might include dressers, chests, and nightstands that match the selected bunk bed. This allows customers to buy matching bedroom furniture without having to buy a 12-piece set.

Cymax sells a Linon twin over twin for $339.00. Their most basic bed, the Linon bunk bed is a good space saver. The Berg, Sierra Collection twin over twin space saver with desk, chest, and stairs is listed at $2,765.00. This bed creates even more useful space. This website advertises "free shipping on select items," but we could not find any items that were not shipped for free. A toll-free number is listed with every product, so customers can call for help without leaving the listing.

Although they provide a large variety of bunk beds, Cymax does not provide the number of search options, ease-of-navigation, and the ability to make bunk bed comparisons that the higher-rated selections did. Additionally,their customer service offerings are not as impressive.

Cost:

From $159 to $2,260

Policy:

Walmart accepts returns within 90 days on most brands

Walmart has taken a unique approach to selling a large array of bunk beds over the internet. Not only do they offer the affordable brands typically sold from Walmart but they also have links to options originating from a few other stores. The end result is a vast selection of bunk bed to meet anyone’s budget and needs.

Shoppers will find 20 different brands of bunk beds via Walmart’s website. Some of which may be picked up at your local Walmart to save on shipping costs. While their website search functionality isn't as robust as others, shoppers may sort through the 135 different bunk beds by brand, high to low price, low to high price and best sellers. The pictures and product descriptions are clear and easy to read.

As mentioned before, Walmart also offers some higher end bunk beds sold through Wayfair and Plumstruck. That said, if a shopper buys a Walmart bunk bed they may return to a local store within 30 days. However, if purchased from Wayfair or Plumstruck they must return via overnight delivery to the respective store within 30 days or as specified on that product.

Shipping costs are determined on which store the bunk bed is purchased from and your current location. If purchased from Walmart, shoppers have the option to save on shipping costs via their in store delivery, free shipping and shipping program options which are available based on which specific product is purchased.

One of the benefits of shopping for a bunk bed from Walmart online is the huge number of customer’s reviews. Shoppers can get an accurate feel from sometimes hundreds of prior owners before making the plunge. Walmart is an excellent option if saving money is an important driver but shoppers should anticipate that not all bunk beds will have the same return and shipping policies and that the website is less savvy than some other companies that do business online.

Lowe's

LOWE'S Visit Site

Cost:

From $492 to $2,000+

Return
Policy:


90 days on most brands

Lowe's is a mega store for home improvements and provides shoppers anything from nuts and bolts to appliances and lighting. What once was a single family hardware store, 60 years ago, has become a massive chain of well organized, customer friendly super stores. Lowe's also offers shoppers an online shopping experience for busy, on the go individuals. The online stores also provides many products not sold local retail outlets such as bunk beds, futons and other furniture options.

For those shopping for bunk beds. Lowe's offers a limited selection from brands such as Atlantic Furniture, Homelegance, Powell Monster, Hillsdale and a few more. The total selection of bunk beds is around 20 and doesn't provide quite the vast selection of choices as other, higher ranked online stores.

Generally speaking, the Lowe's website is easy to navigate for most products. However, for the bunk bed selection there's only the option to sort by high to low price, brand, customer ratings and best sellers. With only 20 different models it's not that disappointing that we had to look through each product to find what we were looking for.

Lowe's does offer free shipping on most orders $49.99 or greater but not typically with furniture purchases. Returns are also simple in that products may be returned within 90 days with receipt via your local store or returned via the prepaid return shipping label. Any damaged goods must be reported to Lowe's within 3 days of receipt so it's important to inspect your purchase, quickly. One of the benefits of shopping with Lowe's is that you can often save on shipping costs by having the product delivered direct to the store. However, that means you'll have to have the space and man power to get the bunk bed home on your own.

The prices of bunk beds were about average to high compared to the same products sold online. However, Lowe's provides a low price guarantee on identical items minus an additional 10%. Please see the website for specific rules.

The Lowe's bunk bed selection was not as abundant or competitive as those companies ranked higher. For a larger selection of quality built, well priced bunk beds we recommend shopping higher on our list of reviews.

Posh Tots

POSH TOTS Visit Site

Cost:

From $979 to $3,112

Return
Policy:

Custom items at Post Tots cannot be returned. Non-custom items can be returned within 10 business days. Customers must call to get a return authorization number and pay all shipping costs.

Posh Tots lists very few bunk beds, but this is not a company that focuses on bunk beds. They sell cribs, bedding, diaper bags, lighting, rugs, and more. All of their products are displayed in designer showrooms.

If you're looking for more than a bunk bed and want to furnish and decorate an entire child's bedroom, Posh Tots is a great website. For a girl's bedroom, they show 16 designer showrooms including Sobe Chick, Fairy Blossom, Hollis Meets Preppy, and Guinevere's Garden. They also show 16 designs for a boy's bedroom. These include Vintage Sock Monkey, Bed Bugs, and Varsity Dreams.

The Posh Tots website is well organized and easy to use. Additionally, customer service can be reached by e-mail and a toll-free number with clearly listed hours of operation. Posh Tots is a high-end company, and their furniture and designs are high quality. However, Posh Tots' high prices and extremely limited selection will make this a poor choice for many consumers.

Continued from above

There are a number of different types of bunk beds available. Some of these include twin-over-twin bunk beds, twin-over-full bunk beds, twin-over-double bunk beds, full-over-full bunk beds, futon bunk beds, and extra long twin bunk beds. There are even three-tiered bunk beds for additional space savings. Additionally, bunk bed selections can be geared specifically toward girls or boys. They can be made of wood or metal, and come in a variety of colors and textures.

Not only do many websites provide a variety of bunk bed selections, many suppliers also include detailed information about safety concerns and proper assembly methods. For example, many websites recommend that children under six sleep in the lower bunk. Additionally, some websites give you the option to have trained professionals set the bed up for you in your home. As an extra safety precaution, many bunk beds include built-in, full-length guard rails and sturdy ladders. And, if your child no longer wants to sleep in the top bunk, many styles of bunk beds can also be converted into stand-alone beds to meet your family's evolving furniture needs.

When looking at different bunk bed offerings, there are certain factors you need to consider. Some of these include:

  • Selection. Does the website offer a variety of bunk beds made by a number of different manufacturers?
  • Return Policy. Does the company enable you to return products for a full refund? How many days do you have to make returns?
  • Ease of Use. Is the website easy to use? Can you easily search for a particular type of bunk bed? Is the website organized and easy to navigate?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best bunk bed store available today. We hope this information helps you find the ideal bunk bed for you!
