Bunk Beds | Loft Beds

Bunk Beds are common types of bed systems made up of two or more beds stacked on top of each other. Efficiently utilizing the unused vertical space above the same area occupied by a single bed, bunk beds are structured to safely support two people sleeping simultaneously. Bunk beds are often found in spaces that require greater sleeping efficiency such as children’s bedrooms, hostels, dormitories, summer camps, prisons and military spaces. Standard bunk beds are made up of two equal sized mattresses, but variations of bunk bed designs may use mismatched sizes, stack more than two beds, or become loft beds that exchange the bottom bed for an open multi-use space. Additional features such as ladders, storage, curtains, and safety railings can be incorporated for greater functionality.

What is the difference between a bunk bed and a loft bed?

Loft beds are similar in concept to bunk beds, but loft beds remove the lower bed in order to instead create an open space that can be used as a play area, work space, lounge, or storage space.

What age is safe for the top bed of a bunk bed?

The top bed of a bunk bed should not be used by children under the age of six years old. Warning labels advising this age should be present on every bunk bed.


How tall are bunk beds?

Bunk beds are designed in a range of common heights from 54”-74” (1.37-1.88 m) that should be considered based on the desired efficiency, room height, and user age.
