Limelight Lunar Bunk Bed
Advantages: very convenient, excellent for small bedrooms
Disadvantages: a little wobbly with big adults sleeping on it!
Last year the other half and I decided that it was time to start looking for a place together...the only problem being money. He was paying loads in rent to his parents and it was cheaper for him to move in to my parent's house. We needed to turn a single room into a double and it wasn't going to happen we were however quite happy to sleep on bunk beds for a couple of months. After all we did not want to move out and end up struggling to pay rent each month.
THE BUNK BED
I had already in my childish way established that I would want to sleep up top and therefore unlike a brave 6 year old climbing a vertical ladder to bed each night I wanted a safe sloping ladder to make the trek that little easier.
The Limelight Lunar bed was just perfect and only coasting £25 from a local Ebay seller we couldn't go wrong.
The bed was obviously flat packed and the previous owner had managed to lose the instructions so we had to go it alone. The assembly was very easy and rather straight forward. It took us roughly 1hour to set up.
The bed looks good, in fact it looks just like a bunk bed should with a bed on top of a bed...seriously though it has sturdy chrome bars and a convenient option to move the headboards and ladder to a preferred side/end.
The option to choose which end to place the headboards was most convenient as the other half likes to sleep one end and I liked to sleep the other, many beds have a 'set' frame and it can make it difficult when fitting into a small room.
The bed has a 25cm gap between the floor and bottom bunk allowing boxes to be stored, offering extra space within a small bedroom. The bed is not too high so with young children it is a safe option.
THE SLEEP TEST
OK so bunk beds are usually designed for small children and not full-sized, big adults so the fact the bed shakes and creaks every time we turn over is something we have to put up with. The bed however is more comfortable than my previous bed so I am not complaining. The bed is very sturdy and certainly feels safe when up top.
Obviously a lot of comfort is due to the mattress used and not so much the quality of the bed, however don't expect the same comfort as an expensive bed.
The bed has offered us a great temporary sleeping option and we have saved enough money to enable us to move out with a bit of financial security whilst saving a little money towards a wedding.
It's not perfect but it's very convenient and useful, especially in a small bedroom. When we move out the bunk bed will be placed in the spare room for any guests. I would definitely recommend this bed to anyone looking for a new bed...although I would say it is better suited to a small child.
Summary: Very convenient and useful especially for children!
