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.

Cost:

From $135 to $2,101

Return Policy:

Within 90 days of the ship date, either to a Target store or via UPS

Target: the little-bit-of-everything store we all know and love. You probably won't see any set up in-store, but bunk beds and loft beds are easily found in their online shop. (And, shopping online might save you from the phenomenon we're all familiar with: going in for Just One Thing and coming out with a whole cartful of stuff you didn't know you needed but had to have, especially those clearance items on the endcaps!)

First, all of the lofts and bunks they offer come with the same perks as any other Target order: 5% off if you use your REDcard, free shipping (since they're all at least $35), and their generous return policy: 90 days from the date it ships. You can return it to any Target store or ship it back to the designated address for returns of online orders. Their policy also says that some large items like furniture might be eligible for pickup by Target's return carrier; you'll need to call their toll-free number and provide your order information to find out for sure.

Typically, the return policy applies to unopened items, and that's a safe bet for bunk beds: but knowing how customer-centric their representatives are, we think it's possible that even something as big as a loft or bunk bed could be returned in-store even if it had been opened. Of course, if you've damaged it when setting it up, that probably wouldn't apply.

The Target website is vey easy to navigate. They display large pictures of each bunk bed they offer, and give you a different view of the bunk bed if you hover over the picture. On the left is a large variety of search options which let you narrow down your search, including:

  • Color
  • Price
  • Bed Size
  • Decor Style
  • Shipping & Pickup
  • Finish
  • Brand
  • Guest Rating
  • Deals
  • FPO/APO
  • Character
  • Theme
  • Gender

As you find models that you like, you'll find much more detailed information on the individual product pages. The main page shows a basic thumbnail image of just the bunk bed or loft bed but hovering over that image gives you an idea of what it would look like in a bedroom: bedding, accessories, and so on.

You won't find the flowery descriptions of the bunk beds, like you might at a store that specializes in furniture. You will find detailed information about dimensions, materials, and assembly, and the Q&A section is especially helpful for anything that might not be answered elsewhere.

We also found a cool feature called GiftNow. Let's say you want to send a bunk bed across the country to your grandkids, but you're not sure what color or what features they'd need. When you use the GiftNow feature, the recipient gets an email notifying them of the gift - and they also have the opportunity to make any adjustments to color, size and style before it ships. That email notification can be scheduled for any future date within the next 12 months, if you like to shop early and know that your gift-giving is taken care of.

If you want an idea of how your loft or bunk bed has worked out for other Target customers, scroll down the page on any individual bunk bed. We especially liked being able to see photos of how the beds looked in real bedrooms, not just the staged photos from the manufacturers. Target customers are known for being brutally honest in their reviews - and we appreciate that Target is known for publishing them all, even if they're not favorable.

Target measures up easily with other retailers of bunk beds. The only drawback we found is that there are no options for white glove delivery: in other words, having someone that brings the boxes into your home and assembles the furniture where you want it. But, buying your bunk or loft bed through Target might save you enough money that you can hire someone to do it for you.

Target offers a pleasant shopping experience, customer-friendly perks, and a good variety of basic loft and bunk beds. We recommend that you browse their site to see if there's a bunk bed that meets your needs.

Posh Tots

Cost:

From $1,073 to $18,000

Return Policy:

30 days on all non-custom items
No returns on custom items

As you might guess by the name, PoshTots is geared towards the parent who wants to have only the best for their children - from furniture to decor. Founded in 2000, PoshTots wants to help you create an environment where your child's imagination can flourish.

PoshTots has some of the most unique themed bunk beds on the market. Check out their Castle Bed, complete with towers, drawers, and a staircase fit for a princess - all for the luxurious price of $17,999. They also carry a selection of about 40 less dramatic designs, like the twin-over-twin Sweetie Pie and the Farmhouse twin-over-full with pull-out drawer/trundle.

You'll have all of the help you need to design the dream bedroom. Design consultants are available via toll-free number or through the Live Chat pop-up on the bottom right-hand part of the screen. On our most recent visit, in that pop-up we were offered promo codes with discounts of 15% off orders of $750+ and 20% off $2000+. PoshTots has a price match guarantee that may be useful if you find one of their bunk beds at a lower price with another retailer.

Standard delivery is free on all of the bunk beds sold by PoshTots. You may want to consider the Premier or White Glove Delivery options, which are available for an extra fee. Standard only gets the item delivered to the end of your driveway or sidewalk, while Premier means it will be brought into your home, and White Glove includes set-up in the room of your choice as well as removal of all packing materials. That service ranges from $69 to $2000 for Premier and from $99 to $2400 for White Glove, depending on the bed you select.

One big drawback to buying your bunk bed at PoshTots is the return policy. While they do offer a 30-day return policy for all in-stock items, every bunk bed we looked at was considered a custom item - and therefore was not returnable for any reason.

As we started to look further into PoshTots' reputation, the red flags started popping up. Given how high-end their bunk bed selection is, it wasn't a surprise not to find thousands of reviews. Unfortunately, the reviews we found were not great; in fact, the more recent ones were almost completely 1-star complaints. We read many stories of orders that went unfulfilled for up to nine months and finally had to be disputed with the credit card company. Granted, most of the bunk beds say pretty clearly that they take anywhere from 2-10 weeks to ship, but almost a year? Not good.

Then we decided to take a look at the PoshTots blog. It no longer exists. Website URL? "Not secure."

PoshTots' BBB listing was being updated at the time of our review, possibly to reflect the change in ownership in 2014. So, we looked up the other business owned by PoshTots' new owners, FIG Stores. That business does have a rating with the Better Business Bureau: an "F".

PoshTots just doesn't deliver. There are other more reliable retailers that also sell high-end, novelty bunk beds if that's what you're looking for - and we strongly recommend that you choose one of them for your purchase.

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!
