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.

Return Policy:

90 days on most orders

What can't you buy at Walmart? Well, when shopping their online site, you'll have a hard time finding something that's not available there - and bunk beds are no exception. With just over 80 styles including lofts and under-bed futons, Walmart may surprise you.

Their navigation is actually better than some of their competitors, even those that specialize in furniture. You can use the left side of the page to narrow down what they sell, according to these criteria:

  • Height
  • Finish
  • Brand
  • Width
  • Price
  • Length
  • Gender
  • Material
  • Maximum User Weight
  • Headboard Style
  • Bed Style
  • Customer Rating
  • Lifestage
  • Bed Size
  • Special Offers
  • Shipping & Pickup: 2-day shipping, Ship to home, Free In-Store Pickup + Discount, and Free Pickup

When you choose a model that interests you, you can see more details. We recommend that you scroll down to see dimensions and other specifications, as well as customer reviews. Your shipping options will be displayed right underneath the price; we were impressed that even on a large item like a bunk bed, we could get delivery to our home for less than $20, or pick up in-store for free. (Of course, picking it up ourselves would also mean we'd need the car/truck space to get it home.)

Many of the bunk beds listed by Walmart specifically mention that they're sold and shipped by a third-party provider - many of whom you'll find in this review. You'll want to check and see if, at the time of your purchase, the bunk bed you want is a better deal if you buy directly from that retailer instead of going through Walmart. Also, since at least one of those third-party stores didn't rank well in our review, it's worth considering whether or not you want to buy from them, even through the Walmart site.

That could be important when it comes to returns. Unless it is specifically fulfilled by Walmart, you'll be at the mercy of the third-party seller's terms and conditions. We had a hard time tracking down Walmart's actual return policy on their site, but historically they've allowed returns in-store and by mail within 90 days of purchase.

While Walmart may not be a glamorous place to buy a bunk bed, their selection is good and their prices are usually lower than the competition. Plus, with so many brick-and-mortar locations for easy pickup and returns on online orders, this store could be perfect for those who need a bed sooner rather than later.

Cost:

From $424 to $1,440

Return Policy:

90 days on new, unused products

We all love Lowe's for our home improvement needs. From hammers to hanging plants, Lowe's has it all, and their online store makes it that much easier to get to work. But, how does this DIY-lover's paradise measure up when shopping for bunk beds?

Regrettably, the answer is "not very well". At the time of our review, Lowe's only carried 20 options: 6 twin-over-twin, 7 twin-over-full, 2 twin-over-queen, and 5 loft styles. And, each of those were extremely limited in terms of upgrades or extras: no possibility of adding a trundle, set of drawers, or brand-coordinated chests of drawers or desks.

Very few of the bunk and loft beds sold by Lowe's had customer reviews; the ones that did only had a single review. The product descriptions and images don't give you much information either, so we recommend that you click on the Specifications section. There, you'll find extensive details about the type of wood and finish, whether or not you'll need a bunkie board, along with all of the measurements you may need to decide if the bed will fit where you want it to go.

On the positive side, all of the bunk beds sold by Lowe's ship for free. If you're in a bigger hurry, you may be able to order online and pick up your furniture at the store on the same day - just be sure your desired location is entered at the top of the site, and you'll be able to see which models are available for pickup.

Lowe's return policy is more generous than some: if your bunk or loft bed is still new/unused, you have 90 days to return it. The site doesn't specify how return shipping works if you choose not to take it to a local store for your return, so you'll want to check to see if your package included a prepaid return slip.

Lowe's is a great place to shop for most home needs, but their selection of loft and bunk beds is underwhelming at best. You'll find a much better selection at the higher-ranked 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!
