double decker bed / bunk bed

Recommended Posts


dear Master Lee,


We live in Hong Kong and as you know, in HK, space is limited. Therefore the rooms are very small, no space for single bed + 2-door cupboard + study table for children. I'm considering to put the study table under a bunk bed in one room for one child. Another consideration is to use a double decker bed for another room for another child (the child sleeps on top and maid sleeps below). Are these arrangements ok?


Thanks in advance for your kind advise.


Regards


Loh Soh Hoon

Dear Soh Hoon,


1. Double-decker beds have been around for many years. Even as far back as in 1930's. Especially in school domitories and army camps.


2. Many pre-university / university students had stayed in hostels and have since graduated, married and many also had become grandfathers!


3. Unlike a beam above one's head, a double decker bed is a flat panel and not a beam.


4. In Singapore especially in the 1960's double-decker beds were also popular as homes are equally as small as those in Hong Kong. Nowadays, many people only have one or two children and thus, less "dependant" on double-decker beds.


Thus in my opinion, using a double-decker bed is a non-issue. In fact, a good way to fully utilise space in bedroom.


Warmest Regards,
Cecil

1. As mentioned previously, double-decker beds have been around for many years.
2. Nowadays, many condo developments have SOHO units or even high ceilings that allow not just one bunk bed but TWO in this example.
3. In World War Two; many of the US ships have bunk beds that can sleep even four sailors in a row. Thus, there is no issue even with this innovative double decker x 2 beds.
4. In this example, the developer's Interior Design has designed such that the 2nd person or lower double decker bed ; has the person's head not below the other double decker bed.
5. By right there is suppose to be no issue. Perhaps, this is one way of assuring concerned parents that there is no major fears as the person's brain matter is not under another bed.
6. My slight concern is that for person on the higher bed; if his head is at the corner of the room; make sure that there is sufficient ventilation.
6.1 As sleeping at a corner implies stagnant air flow. Of course, air is always there but if no fan or air-con circulating around this "corner" area, it is not that healthy as there is lower refresh (air) cycle at that area. It also depends on type of windows and how air circulates or does not circulate into the "corner of where the 2nd person's head is at the upper deck of the double decker.
6.2. Often this is why, the wardrope is always often placed along this area.

The illustrations show that often, it is better to place a wardrope at the corner of the bedroom furthest away from the bedroom door.
As this has more to do with air-flow into and out of the bedroom.
Natural air always follow the path of the lowest resistance which is an opening.
BUT, if one turns on a fan to circulate to all areas of the bedroom or turn on an air-con; then what I mentioned above is a non-issue.

In this example, the loft bed is closer to the window area (side).
Air-flow to the bed-head also depends on the openings at the window area. Many new condos have windows that open only at the side. And if it is in this situation; opened at the bed-head side; some asian children, are scared of strong winds blowing towards their bed.
Thus, we must always consider variables like where are the windows, full or partial walls; and where are the bedroom doors.

Hi Master Lee, is it bad to sleep under that beam?

Reply: If not load bearing but superficial is more psychological than anything else
