The history of the wooden bunk bed
We know that beds have been around for years, but when did wooden bunk beds come into fruition? It is said that the bunk bed originated from the loft bed. The loft bed can be traced as far back as the Egyptians, so we can kind of say that bunk beds originated from them, or at least the concept did. It would seem that bunk beds evolved out of over population and lack of space. People may have simply tried putting a bed on top of another, resulting in bunks beds, or they may have decided to use the un-used space under a loft bed and then worked out you could have the two connected.
However, they came about it is safe to say they have not changed much since. In fact nearly all bunk beds old and new perfectly match this US Patent 6223363 of bunk bed assembly: A bunk bed assembly for providing a place for people to sleep: The bunk bed assembly includes a plurality of generally vertically extending elongated columns that are spaced apart and oriented in a generally rectangular configuration. Each of the columns has upper and lower ends and a transparent peripheral sidewall extending between the ends. The peripheral sidewall of each of the columns defines a bore through the column. A pair of spaced apart upper and lower bunks extend between the columns. Every single bunk bed found on bedstar.co.uk would fit with this assembly description, showing that once a good thing is found it stays the same for many years to come. Admittedly modern bunk beds have got fancier, but they still have the basic form of one bed on top of another bed, ‘bunked’ together as some would say.
