Notes

The Powell Matte Black and Country Pine Bunk Bed combines country styling -- solid pine posts, arched and slat-pattern tubular bed ends -- with functional sleeping space that can accommodate two kids. However, the functionality doesn't stop there; with the lower part of the structure convertible from a comfortable sofa to the full sized bed and back, this product can be useful in a variety of situations, from sleepovers to leisure time consumption: reading, watching TV, playing... The added boon is, the bunks can be separated into two individual beds, and some users reported the futon part to be especially useful this way.

This twin over futon bunkbed has been designed and engineered with safety in mind; it features heavy gauge metal tubing, full length guardrails, and sturdy welded metal slat system for mattress support -- the mere fact that the top bunk is certified by manufacturer to support no less than 300 pounds speaks volumes.

The user feedback on this product is by and large positive. The bed is deemed very sturdy, well made and durable, without exceptions. Reviewers are also quite happy with its appearance -- singled out a couple of times is the soft feel of the matte black finish.

One thing the buyers are not happy about, however, is the ladder: the steps (rungs) are tubular and reportedly very hard and uncomfortable on bare or stocking feet. This could be considered a semi-serious issue, but, fortunately, one user has found a fairly easy fix to the problem: putting some pipe insulation on the rungs, which makes them soft and cushy.

A few users also reported the assembly of the bed was tedious and difficult; better directions were called for. A bit odd, actually, as this seems like a simple enough product. The good thing is, you only have to do it once.

The images to the right show this bunk bed in its miscellaneous forms.

Note: to be able to fold out the futon, you need to place the bed a few inches away from the wall.
