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.

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award If you want the best selection of bunk beds and loft beds on an easy-to-shop website, plus customer perks like free shipping and a friendly customer service team, Wayfair should be your first choice.

Wayfair's online store couldn't be any simpler to use when looking for the right bunk bed. Even though they truly offer "a zillion things home", you can use these intuitive dropdown filters to narrow down the more than 1,700 bunks and lofts they carry:

  • Bed Size: Complete with images so you can picture what they look like, you can select from among twin, extra-long twin, full, twin-over-twin, twin-over-full, and full-over-full configurations. Note: Wayfair does offer twin- and full-over-queen options, but they're not specifically listed in the dropdown filters.
  • Features: Here, select from any options you'd like, such as guardrails, solid wood construction, built-in storage, trundle bed, bookcase, made in USA, tents, slides, and more.
  • Material: Wood, upholstered, metal, or plastic
  • Color: You may not have a preference, but if you're looking to color-coordinate, you'll have 19 different options in this dropdown.
  • Wood Tone: 8 different options, with thumbnail images to help you distinguish among them.

If that's not enough, click on the See All Filters button. You'll have the ability to also specify the bed size, bunk configuration, bed design, style, theme, dimensions, type of wood, and many other criteria.

Wayfair's selection absolutely runs the gamut in terms of budget and features. On the highest end, you'll find the Harriet Bee twin-over-full bunk bed in the Dillon style, coming in at an impressive $20,970.33 (don't forget those 33 cents!). Amazingly, when we clicked on the bed for more details, it was being offered at a discount of 96% - $829.99. We're not sure of the reason for the huge markdown, but given that most of the other Harriet Bee models were in the $700-$1200 range, it may have been a pricing error to begin with.

If you're looking for a sturdy, higher-end bunk/loft bed, Wayfair's next option would be in the Brayden Studio Gautreau line. With an upper bunk accessed by stairs, and a convertible lower bunk that goes from futon to bed - and a trundle for even more sleeping accommodations - this model was offered for just under $5,500 when we shopped the site.

On the budget end of the spectrum, you'll find plenty of affordable options. The Viv + Rae and Zoomie Kids brands both have loft and twin-over-twin/full bunk beds for under $150. And, just because they're affordable doesn't mean they're junk: each of those have hundreds of customer reviews averaging more than 4 out of 5 stars.

Whether you're looking for a sturdy, heirloom piece to be passed down from your children to their own kids someday, or a quick fix for a dorm room, all bunk beds and loft beds have free shipping. Some even offer free two-day delivery; you'll find those clearly indicated as you browse.

Wayfair's return policy is comparable with most highly-rated furniture stores: 30 days on all unassembled bunk beds and loft beds in their original packaging. One extra perk: if you opt to return your bunk bed for store credit instead of a refund, Wayfair will pick up the tab on the return shipping costs. That's a definite plus if you're just not happy with the particular bed you chose and want to try something else (or maybe shop for other home items instead).

Wide selection, competitive pricing, free returns with no restocking fees, and an easy-to-use website - for all of these reasons and more, Wayfair leads the pack when it comes to bunk bed retailers, and they earn our highest rating.

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.

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!
