Bunk bed

By

Definition: A piece of furniture that houses two beds, stacked vertically at a distance, and includes a narrow staircase or ladder for access to and from the top bunk. The use of a bunk bed in an apartment is a space-saving technique that allows two children to share a bedroom without the need to occupy any extra floor space, since there is no second stand-alone bed.
Examples:
Rather than move to a three-bedroom apartment at a higher rent, my friends decided to rent a two-bedroom apartment and put their twins in a bunk bed in the second bedroom.
