Ensuring Safe Sleep: What is the recommended age for bunk beds?

This is a common query parents have when considering bunk beds for their kids. The recommended age for children sleeping on bunk beds can vary depending on the specific design, but here are some general guidelines to help you make an informed decision:

Low Bunk Beds - top mattress base below 70cm:

Low bunk beds are typically suitable for children aged 6 years and older.

Younger children who sleep on low bunk beds should be capable of easily climbing up and down from the top bunk without assistance. Super low loft beds can be comfortable for adults of all ages, depending on their preferences and needs. They are particularly popular in modern minimalist interiors. Explore our range of low loft options on our website.

High Bunk Beds:

High bunk beds, featuring a top bunk at a significant height, are generally recommended for children aged 9 years and older.

Children sleeping on the top bunk of high bunk beds should be mature enough and physically developed to safely ascend and descend from the top bunk and follow safety precautions.

Are bunk beds safe for young children?

This is another frequently asked question, and it's crucial to address safety concerns. Bunk beds can be safe for children when used appropriately. Following age recommendations and safety guidelines is essential:

  • Children should always follow safety rules, such as refraining from playing on the beds, not jumping from the top bunk, and using guardrails or ladders for climbing.
  • Bunk beds should be correctly assembled and maintained according to the manufacturer's instructions and regularly inspected for stability and integrity.
