Kids don’t get excited about home decor. Unless you’re talking about a bunk bed!
A few things to keep in mind:
* A slanted ladder has a larger footprint than a straight vertical one.
* As their style changes, it’s much easier to swap out sheets than a whole bed.
* The option to use as 2 beds is nice in case you move and have more room.
As for who gets to sleep on the top bunk… you’re on your own.
