Bunk Bed Mattress Buying Tips

Is your bunk bed mattress getting saggy? You can rejuvenate your bunk bed and make it as good as new by replacing the mattress.

Bunk beds are a common space solution in homes where siblings share a bedroom. They’re ideal for small rooms because they make the most of available floor space. Kids enjoy playing and jumping on their bunk beds, so the mattresses tend to wear out quickly.

If the mattresses on your bunk bed start to show signs of wear and tear - or your children complain of not being able to sleep comfortably - it may be time for you to buy new mattresses.

Standard Bunk Bed Mattress Sizes

Standard bunk beds have two twin-size mattresses. Some beds provide for extra long mattresses. Full-size bunk beds have two full-size mattresses. Twin-full bunk beds have a twin-size mattress on the top and a full-size mattress on the bottom.

Standard, twin-size mattresses are 39 inches wide and 75 inches long. Full-size mattresses for bunk beds are 54 inches wide and 75 inches long. Extra long twin-size mattresses for bunk beds are 39 inches wide and 80 inches long.

Tips for Buying Mattresses for Bunk Beds

Measure your bunk bed to find out exactly what size your new mattress needs to be. It’s essential to get a mattress that fits perfectly into the bunk bed frame. If the mattress is too small, it could endanger your children because their body parts could get stuck between the mattress and frame.

Once you have your mattress dimensions, look for the most comfortable bed. Take the kids shopping with you and have them lie down on various mattresses until they find one they like.

There are two types of mattresses for bunk beds from which to choose: innerspring mattresses and foam mattresses. Innerspring mattresses are the most common and affordable type of mattress. Their firmness varies depending on the width of the coils.

Some people prefer foam mattresses despite their steeper price tag because they are purportedly more comfortable. In the end, choosing a mattress really boils down to personal preference.
