Searching for the best bunk bed but overwhelmed by the amount of choice there is? Your search is officially over: we've rounded up the best buys on the web from our favourite brands, whether you are after a double bunk bed or a triple sleeper, something basic, modern or uniquely fun. Prices start from only £100, too...

Why opt for a bunk bed as oppose to two singles? There's the obvious perk of bunk bed being space-savvy – to  leave plenty of room for their toys, their clothes and plenty more. Also, a bunk bed is a no-brainer buy if you need to sleep two siblings in the same room – or if you have one child who likes to have friends sleep over a lot. You can even buy bunk beds with built-in storage from wardrobes to under bed drawers and shelving units. Browse our top picks from everywhere including Noa & Nani, Happy Beds, Argos and more.

What to consider when buying a bunk bed?

Height
If you're planning on buying a bunk bed for younger children, be careful about the height: too tall and you might find that your little one will be fearful of climbing the ladder. Also, you'll need to ensure that your child can comfortably climb into and sit up straight in the bed, without fear of hitting their head on the ceiling.

Guard rails
If your child is a restless sleeper, a sturdy guard rail is a must-have.

Adaptability
Can the bunks be split down into two twin beds once your children move into their own rooms? If you're buying for one child, is there an option for a desk beneath the bunk, or a fold-out chair to create a sleepover space for guests?

Access
The ladder is usually fixed, but how easy is it to climb?
