Are bunk beds safe?

Most children dream of sleeping on a bunk bed. More and more often, we have little space in our apartments and we are wondering how to functionally arrange a sibling's room. A bunk bed for children will be a perfect solution. A properly selected bunk bed should not only be tailored to the needs of your children, but also well secured. How to secure a bunk bed? Discover some proven ways!

 

The safety of your child when they are asleep, how to take care of it


What to do to keep your children safe when sleeping on a bunk bed? Choose a bunk bed model that suits your child's age. Make sure that its height matches the toddler's height and skills. An additional protection will be a safety rail that will protect against falling while sleeping or playing during the day. Choose a frame that can be screwed to the wall, which will guarantee additional stability of the bed. For this, choose a mattress of the appropriate height, which will ensure comfortable and effective rest.

 

 

 

From what age can a child sleep in a bunk bed?


The structure of a bunk bed is much more complex than a single bed for children. When deciding on this solution, it is worth considering whether your little ones are ready for it. A bunk bed can be a unique attraction, but also a risk if it is not adjusted to the age of the children. Willingness to sleep in a bunk bed depends on the child's movement and coordination skills. We recommend such structures to children from 3-4 years of age. Low beds with high rails will work for the youngest. Already from about 6 years of age of a child, higher models can be considered.


Guard rail - which height should you choose?


Safety barriers are a structural solution that allows to create safe bunk beds for children. Ideally, it should be as high as possible. Experts indicate that the minimum distance from the mattress to the upper edge of the safety railing should be 160 mm. Some parents look for additional security and construct very high barriers or casings on their own. It is worth taking care of this, especially if children under 6 are to sleep on a bunk bed. A recently fashionable solution is the installation of an additional mesh that is attached to the ceiling and bed frame. You can also put a colourful, soft bumper on the railing, which will increase the comfort of using the bed.

 

How to choose a safe mattress for a bunk bed?


A safe bunk bed should be equipped with appropriate mattresses. What to consider when choosing a mattress for a child? The first thing to consider is the height of the mattress. It should be adjusted to the height of the bed frame protective railing. When we use a thick mattress, our children will lie higher. That is why it is so important that when choosing a mattress for the frame, the railing should be at least 16 cm high. Such information is usually included in the product description, if it is not worth contacting customer service and asking about this dimension.

It is a myth that the thicker the mattress, the better. There are many thin mattresses available that are very comfortable and safe. The recommended solution is highly flexible mattresses with a thickness of about 12 cm and latex mattresses.

 


A safe bed frame for a children's bunk bed


When choosing a bunk bed for a child, it is worth paying attention to the bed frames. A properly selected bed frame is able to optimise the sleeping comfort and significantly extend the life of the mattress, thanks to the fact that it will lie on the appropriate support. Highly flexible frames are the best solution. Physiotherapists and other specialists confirm that the role of the bed frame is huge and it is one of the most important elements of the bed.

 

Screwing the bed to the wall - additional safety measure for a children's bunk bed


A children's bed is not only a place to sleep, but also a space for creative play for children. Children love to play with all of themselves, so especially at the beginning, their crazy games may involve moving the whole bed. Are you wondering how to secure it? Screw the bed to the wall! It is an easy way to additionally stabilise the furniture. You can do it easily by choosing a safe wooden bunk bed.
