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.

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!
