Bunk Bed Mattress Buying Guide

Selecting the mattress that works best for you is a big deal, and bunk bed mattresses are no exception. In fact, due to the bunk bed's unique design, it's even more important to make sure you buy the right kind of mattress for your bunk bed. There are currently EU regulations and requirements for top bunk mattresses. Any mattress standard can be used on the bottom bunk.

  • Minimum 10cm below the top of the guard rail and needs to fit snugly and securely.
  • This means the the mattress needs to be 7 Inches (17.8cm) or under for most bunk beds.

Before a child uses the bed, safety issues should be explained to them. It is recommended that no child under the age of six uses the top bunk; that children in the top bunk do not lean over the railings to avoid falls and that the ladder should only be used to enter the bunk bed and is not to be used in play.
