Target vs Rooms To Go

Best Bunk Bed Stores

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.

ROOMS TO GO

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.

Continued from above

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!
