Have you thought about a toddler bed for #2 instead?
My two boys share a room and I was thinking about getting bunks but don't think I will now! We have DS1 (who is 5) in a single bed and DS2 (who is 2) in a toddler bed. I'm planning on keeping him in a toddler bed until he's about 5 as there isn't enough room for 2 singles in their room. We'll probably move house then anyway.

We're thinking about using a midi bed to raise one bed up so we can but the second bed under it at a 90° angle. Haven't actually followed through with buying one, but it might work...

We used a normal single and trundle bed for our youngest two DDs when they were 5&2.5 when she moved out of her converted cot/toddler bed we then put the younger one into a proper bed at 4yo. She was a big night mover.
The trundle was only half pulled out and on an L to the top of the single so didn't take up a lot off floor space as kids rooms are not big by any stretch of imagination.
We do manage to fit two beds x 2 rooms with not much else and have play space elsewhere now. Bedrooms for sleeping and changing clothes only.
If you have a measuring tape get it out and give everything a measure up you may be surprised at having a little more room than you thought.

We got a lowline bunk for our girls - the bottom bed is just off the ground and the top bunk is at my shoulder, so it's not quite as high off the ground. DD1 (4 years old) sleeps amazingly on the top bunk. She has been a chronic waker since she was 2 but doesn't on the top bunk. DD2 (2 years old) will go on the bottom bed when we're ready for her to escape the cot.
I find the bed no issue to change, and it's actually easier than the King single bed we had before the bunks.

I have my boys in bunk beds, out of necessity as I actually have 3 kids in one room.
If you need the space, bunks are obviously great for that. They do save so much space.
My only negative is the linen changes. OMG I hate it. I am trying to teach DS1 how to do it but it is hard enough for me to do, let alone him, so I still do most of it.
Other than that we have no issues.

Everything above plus be prepared to get foot prints on the ceiling above the top bunk.
The big plus is more floor space of course.
I'm actually trying to work out how to get rid of ours.
