One more to consider in the modern bunk bed arena. Nurseryworks' Duet Bunk Bed is a thing of beauty. The catalpa wood frame looks solid. The Duet features two cabinets (upper and lower), 6 open cubbies and 3 drawers at the bottom.
The twin beds can be stacked or unstacked and you can purchase just the lower bed. When unstacked, the open cubbies unit becomes standalone storage. The fact that the beds look so beautiful unstacked is tempting. When the kids finally are done with them, they look great as daybeds and will come in handy for out-of-town guests. But for all of this, you will pay. The Duet starts at $2890. You can get dark or natural catalpa wood with bright accent colors like lime and cotton candy. Compare the Duet to these:
