It often happens, especially when there are two or more in a family; children, that in the bedrooms are preferred bunk beds and combined bed structures, rather than single beds: a matter of space and cost optimization, because it is thanks to this system & egrave; can accommodate the beds in the same room, otherwise they would not fit. With bunk beds, in fact, vertical spaces are also exploited, which otherwise would not be usable and the room becomes more and more; spacious and welcoming, even when in reality; the available space is not available; cos & igrave; ample. & nbsp;
Precisely with reference to the optimization of spaces, since the bedrooms are more and more; small, bunk beds and bed frames are finding increasing popularity even when there is one child. In fact, many solutions provide for a single bed, instead of two, with the lower part that is occupied by a sofa or a desk: in this way there is; maximum optimization of spaces and it is; The study area can also be obtained in rooms where it would not be possible otherwise. & nbsp;
The bunk bed is also the ideal solution when you want to have at home a second bed to use in case you want to have extra space to accommodate the friends of the children, the relatives, who should stop to sleep at home. p>
Although there is no certain information about it, it is; it is logical to suppose that the bunk beds have been invented more and more; for functional and practical needs than anything else. In fact, before they appeared in the houses, bunk beds were used on board ships and trains. & Nbsp;
Until less than a century ago, in fact, the train was the most popular vehicle; used for large displacements by land: the plane had not yet been invented and the trains represented the highest idea of luxury. They were not structured like modern ones, they were much more serious; luxurious and comfortable because & eacute; rail journeys could also last several days, often several weeks depending on the chosen route. Just think of the First Transcontinental Railroad, the railway line that since 1862 joins the east coast and the west coast of the United States: initially, the journey lasted about 8 days, after the inevitable breakdowns on the line and the locomotive that characterized the first experiences of rail travel. This was the most popular medium; fast to connect the two sections and was a real revolution: of course, the trains that traveled on this line were all equipped with bed compartments, real cabins where passengers could rest during the night. The division into classes was very felt in that period, the rich had well-maintained cabins available, with refined tapestries and fine compartments, the less well-off, however, had to be satisfied with Spartan compartments and not very easy. On these trains, bunk beds were indispensable or, better, they were structures that can be likened to the bunk beds we know. In fact, the beds were anchored to the side walls and were platforms on which the mattress was placed: the dimensions were lower than a traditional bed and the beds of the third class compartments were straw mattresses, with very narrow spaces to make you stay in the same cabin how many pi & ugrave; possible people. The exploitation of vertical spaces was the best solution, as it is; you can double the number of occupants. & nbsp; p>
The same reasoning can; be done for ships, first commercial and merchant, to then be extended to those passengers. It is reasonable to suppose that the bunk beds on the boats made their first appearance on the 18th century vessels, in the form of stacked wooden structures where the sailors on duty lay on straw mattresses. Surely, from the nineteenth with the invention of the steam engine, the spaces on board the ships have been revised and it is; here were born the first cabins for the crew, tiny cubicles where all the spaces were exploited to the maximum to accommodate the sailors in the few hours of rest granted: there was just enough space to enter and to get out of bed, the walls were to occupy the beds, usually two but in some cases even three, and there were only 20 or 30 of space between the two columns of beds and little more; of 40 cm between a bed and the one above it. & nbsp;
