Ask the dealer if the bunk bed or loft bed meet the American Society of Testing Standards safety standards.

Check the bunk bed guard rails, usually on the top bunk, to see if they run all the way around the bed and make sure they are not loose.

Look at the bottom bunk to make sure there are support slats under the bottom bunk mattress to provide support. Also, make sure the mattress fits snugly into the bunks frame, there should be very little gap between all the sides of the mattress and the bunks frame.

Make sure all the corners and the edges are smooth and clean.

Ensure the ladder is sturdy and easy for your children to climb safely.

Overall, just make sure you use good common sense when selecting a bunk bed or loft bed for you children. Remember kids love to jump on beds and climb on beds so safety should be the first thing on your mind.
