We have this bunk.....
It's lower than a normal bunk so feels perfectly safe, plus there is no way a kid could roll out of it. The top is not stuffy. We have a ceiling fan and there has been no issues. The kids know not to jump or be silly on the top bunk.
I lever the top mattress out to change it (balance it on the edge of the bed) and it's fine.
I like it as it leaves space in the room for a reading nook and just feels less cluttered.
Nb. The bottom mattress isn't on the floor, there are slats.

Does that Saturn bunk take a normal thickness mattress or do u have to buy a special one?
We just got normal inner spring ones.
I think it was around $800? We got it 2 years ago.
We had the ikea kura bunk and the mattress on the floor has not been a problem...except it need a warm undetlay in winter...but for price and space saving it's been great.
I wouldn't get a bunk if we didn't have to, but we needed the space. It was actuallly the bottom bunk I detested making the most.
Our bunk is no longer needed...our kids that share a room are not really at toy age anymore, and asked to go back to single beds. So, we now just have the bunk bed in our youngest's room and the underneath is set up like a fort.
It's been such a good investment. Check out ikea kura bunk hacks. They are amazing!
This is something we'll have to do too. My youngest (almost 2) and 6 (almost 7) year old share a room and my younger is still in the cot but I'm guessing maybe this year we will hsve to look into bunks. Their bedroom is small so no room for two beds. I'll be getting low-line bunks.
