Where can you find the best bunk beds? First, you'll need to have an idea of what style of bed is right for the space you have. For example, if you've got kids that are sharing a small bedroom, you'll probably want a traditional style where one frame is stacked right on top of the other - some styles even have a two sets of bunk beds side-by-side with a set of stairs linking them.

Bunk beds are also very popular in vacation rental homes. Kids love the novelty of sleeping in them - and deciding who gets to sleep in the top bunk - while rental owners appreciate being able to accommodate more guests.

Hayneedle

HAYNEEDLE Visit Site

Cost:

From $114 to $3,269

Return Policy:

30 days for new, unused beds

Although Hayneedle started as an outdoor living store in 2002, they now offer over 3,000 brands within the home furnishings and decor marketplace. With headquarters in Nebraska and fulfillment centers in California and Ohio, and a partnership with Walmart, Hayneedle will probably be popping up on your radar at some point if they haven't already.

At first, Hayneedle was very promising with respect to bunk beds and loft beds. The site is easy to use, with 670 different beds to choose from and handy filtering options on the left side of the page: you can narrow down the possibilities according to the size of the bed, the material, desired features like bookshelves and storage drawers, color/finish, and more. Even scrolling through the thumbnails, you'll have no problem seeing which beds have options for color and configuration, and which ones already have customer ratings you can read to further guide your decision making.

But, once we'd selected a bunk bed that interested us, things started to get less clear. First, the bed we chose had free shipping - great! - but we wouldn't be able to have it delivered for almost two months. There was a link that said, "Upgrade to get it sooner", but that didn't take us to anywhere that offered a faster delivery. There were options for room-of-choice delivery for $99, and white glove delivery/installation for $149, but all of those still had a two-month delivery window. Plus, that installation/setup is "limited to assembly actions that can be performed without the use of tools", which may not be terribly useful when putting together something as large as a bunk bed or loft bed.

Some of the information we would expect to see about a bunk bed was also missing. For example, when we looked at the Fireside Lodge Cedar Log Bunk, a customer had asked about the weight limit for the queen-over-queen style. The response? "There are no specific weight capacity for this bunk bed." We doubt that the bed could support two very large adults on the top - and most competitor sites spell those kinds of details out clearly.

What about the company's reputation? Although Hayneedle had an "A+" rating and accreditation with the BBB at the time of our review, customer complaints paint a very different story. We found dozens of reviews from the last few months alone that give the retailer the lowest rating possible. Why? Frequent comments include "furniture arrived damaged and Hayneedle wouldn't give me a refund", "orders cancelled repeatedly with no explanation", and "items arrived with missing parts - Hayneedle couldn't ship replacement parts, only an entirely new item and I had to ship the original back".

In fact, it was challenging to find customers who had positive things to say about their experience with Hayneedle, especially when ordering larger items like furniture. Almost every single review said that the furniture was damaged; positive comments were limited to those who ordered smaller items, or who were able to get a satisfactory resolution when they received furniture that was broken, scratched, or missing parts.

Hayneedle has a lot of competition in the bunk bed market, and despite a good track record with the BBB, the most recent customer experiences say you'll get a better night's sleep shopping elsewhere.

Rooms To Go

ROOMS TO GO Visit Site

Cost:

From $299 to $1,750

Return Policy:

Must be initiated within 48 hours of delivery

Rooms To Go has likely popped up on your TV and radio, featuring one-stop shopping for furnishing any room in your home. The Rooms To Go Kids site has what you'll need for your girl's or boy's bedroom, along with themes geared towards teens. There are just over 80 choices specifically for loft beds and bunk beds.

Many of the loft beds offered by Rooms To Go are tent-style: in other words, they look like a fort, cabin, or castle, with the bed on top and attachments hanging down to give the entire piece of furniture a playhouse-like feel. Other styles are available, including the traditional twin-over-twin and more unique combinations like a twin-over-full loft with steps and a dresser.

Finding what you want isn't incredibly intuitive on the Rooms To Go site. Sorting options on the left of the main Bunk Beds page only include the finish and the size, and then results can be arranged by price, featured styles, name or best-sellers. But, somehow when we started clicking around, we wound up on a page where there were more sorting choices in the navigation - which should also have been shown on the main page for bunk beds.

And, even once you choose a bunk bed that looks like a good fit for your needs, you won't find much detail on the product page. Dimensions? Just height, width, length. Weight limits? No. Recommended ceiling clearance? No. The only helpful information is whether or not it will require a bunkie board to support the mattress. But, even that's not consistent: when we toggled between a white and a taffy finish for the same model of bunk bed, one clearly said that a bunkie was required and listed it for purchase, while the other mentioned that it was necessary in one of the bullet points without having it there as an add-on to our order.

Rooms To Go has a limited delivery range: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas, Virginia and Kentucky are the only locations where delivery is available statewide. Additional parts of Oklahoma, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Louisiana and Washington, DC are also eligible, but not the entire state.

Delivery charges depend on what you buy and where it's delivered. For delivery of just a bunk bed or loft bed in the zip code we checked, we'd pay a delivery/set-up fee of $89.99. For a bunk/loft and one or more additional items, like a dresser or bookcase, the fee increases to $139.99.

Rooms To Go has the worst return policy of any bunk bed retailer we reviewed: you only have 48 hours from when your furniture is delivered to request a return. You'll be responsible for return shipping costs via UPS only. And don't think it'll be any better if you buy from a showroom: there are no returns accepted once your purchase has been delivered.

Frankly, we're not sure how Rooms To Go has an "A+" rating and accreditation with the BBB. Almost every single customer review we found said that the delivery experience was beyond nightmarish, with damages to both the furniture itself and the customers' homes, improperly assembled products, and a "not my problem" attitude from customer service representatives.

Given that the Better Business Bureau seems to be the only place for anything positive about Rooms To Go, we suggest that you consider another one of the more customer-friendly bunk bed stores in our review.

Most bunk beds offer a range of sizes, from the classic twin-over-twin all the way up to a full-over-full size. Having a larger bottom bed can be especially helpful when Mom or Dad needs to spend some time helping reassure children in the middle of the night! And, if you anticipate that your kids may not always want to share the bunk bed, many styles give you the option to disconnect the top from the bottom and use each as a stand-alone bed.

Finally, the most high-end bunk beds incorporate novelty themes to create the bedroom of a child's dreams, from princess castles to treetop hideaways.

On the other hand, if you're equipping a college dorm room and want a bed that frees up floor space, a loft bed is a great fit. Many loft beds have built-in desks and shelves underneath, and some come with a futon for extra seating when friends come to hang out.

Buying a bunk bed or loft bed online can make your shopping extremely easy. Instead of driving from one store to another, you can see hundreds - even thousands - of brands, frame materials, configurations and options with just a few clicks of the mouse. The best online retailers of bunk beds give you all the information you need to get the right fit: from safety tips (e.g. top bunks aren't recommended for children under the age of 6), to measurement helps, as well as extras like guardrails and canopies. Better yet, many bunk beds and loft beds come with free shipping: no need to try and squeeze bulky furniture boxes into your trunk or strap them to your car roof!

When deciding where to buy your bunk bed, you might initially feel overwhelmed by the wide variety of options out there. Here are several factors to consider that can guide your shopping decisions:

  • Selection. How many bunk beds and/or loft beds does the store offer? Can you find a range of choices in terms of brands, styles, and price points?
  • Return Policy. If you don't like the bunk bed once it's been delivered, can you return it and get a refund? Will you have to cover the return shipping costs? Is there a restocking fee?
  • Online Shopping Experience. How well-organized is the site? Can you find what you're looking for quickly, or do you have to spend time hunting for what you want?
  • Reputation. What do other customers say about the retailer? Have they been satisfied with the quality of the bunk beds they've ordered? Is the customer service department responsive when problems arise? Is the store in good standing with the Better Business Bureau?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best bunk bed stores available today. We hope this information helps you find the right bunk bed or loft bed for your needs!
