Bunk Bed Mattresses

No bunk bed is complete without a bunk bed mattress. Bunk bed mattresses have been specifically designed for bunk bed use. It's best not to take your chances with any old mattress. Read this quick guide and find out how to buy the right one for you.

Bunk Bed Mattress Height

Choosing a bunk bed mattress that is the correct dimensions is of ultimate importance. Most bunk bed mattresses range between 15” to 18” in height. Choosing a mattress that is too tall will make your guard rails ineffective. It is wise to leave at least 6” of space from the top of the mattress to the top of the guard rail. Leaving too much space between the mattress and the guard rail can also be hazardous. Many children toss and turn during the night and you don't want any chance of getting an arm or leg wedged in. If your bunk bed doesn't come with a mattress, be sure to read the specifications to find out exactly how much height you can have.

Innerspring vs Foam

Choosing a type of mattress is largely a matter of personal preference. Foam mattresses are increasingly popular for the home. Many people prefer to sleep on the comfort of a latex or memory foam mattress and your kids or guests are no different. Regular foam is still widely used especially for childrens bedrooms. Innerspring mattresses are always a great choice.

Bunk Bed Mattress Sizes

Bunk beds are typically available in twin size but full size and queen size bunk beds are also popular, especially in loft bunk beds. Some bunk beds have a larger bunk bed on the bottom. Be sure to check the size before making a bunk bed mattress purchase. Read More

Futon Bunk Beds

Futon bunk beds generally have a bunk bed mattress included as part of the set. If not, purchasing a futon mattress in the correct size will be a smart plan. Futon mattresses are designed to fold up, unlike a regular bunk mattress.

Optional: Bunky Board

A bunky board is another popular choice to use in conjunction with a bunk bed. The bunky board is a board that replaces a box spring mattress. It is essentially a flat board that lies between the mattress and the bed frame. Adding a bunky board increases the firmness of the bunk bed mattress and might even help to prolong mattress life.
