Bunk beds are a fun solution for making the most of the available space in a shared bedroom. They're the perfect solution for twins or siblings sharing a bedroom, or even for sleepovers with friends. Not to mention, Bunk Beds make the most of the available floor space, leaving plenty more room for activities!
Bunk Beds are ideal for saving space in a shared bedroom, leaving more floor space for extra furniture, storage and playing! But don't worry, they needn't take up too much room or be an eyesore. Our range of Kids Bunk Beds feature clever built-in storage solutions if you are looking for a bunk bed with storage. We have fun & modern designs and even slides! There's a Bunk Bed here at The Children's Furniture Company to suit any little one's bedroom, with a range of sizes, designs and colours to choose from.
Looking for a sleepover solution? We're not all lucky enough to have a spare bedroom or space for a sofa bed. Even if you don't need the spare bunk all the time, it can be super handy for sleepovers. And if you're wondering what to do with the spare bunk on a day-to-day basis, you can always throw some cushions & blankets on it to make a cosy little under-bed sofa! This is a great way of giving your children the luxury of their own space to sit & relax (besides their bed) without taking up loads of space in a small bedroom. This also comes in handy as kids get older, as it becomes a lovely space to read, study or watch tv.
You don't need to worry too much about ceiling height either, as many of our bunk beds are a suitable height for children 6 years and above and suit most average ceiling heights. But it's always important to measure up and check the dimensions before you buy.
Bunk beds come in many different styles and sizes, depending on how much space you have available in your room. If you have a small room, you can get a twin or full-sized bed. If you have lots of space, there are usually more options to choose from - like a queen size or king-size bed.
The majority of our bunk beds have a footprint of our standard single bed. We do a bunk that has a double bed at the base should you need to sleep three. If this is the case we also have a triple bunk bed in which every single bed is stacked on top of each other.
Bunk beds are usually 39 inches (99cm) wide, 79 inches (200cm) long, and 65 inches (165cm) high. Before you purchase one, make sure you measure the room or space they will fit in and note there's a 24 inch (61cm) space between the top bunk's railing and ceiling.
Apart from bunk beds, there are also other options that allow you to save a lot of space in your child's or guest room, through the use of loft beds for instance
A bunk bed requires clearance of at least 190 cm from all walls. The upper bunk must have clearance of at least 220 cm from the wall on all sides. The lower bunk can be placed as close to the wall as needed, but still needs to be clear of surrounding objects (such as furniture) in case a person needs to get out quickly in an emergency.
The ceiling height should be 6 meters or lower for bunk beds to be installed. You can still make it work if your ceiling is taller than that.
Need flexibility with the design? Some of our bunk beds have the option to place the ladder on either the right or left-hand side of the bed to suit your bedroom layout. And once you've finished with the bunk formation, some are even detachable, meaning you can split them into two single beds and save yourself from shopping around for something brand new.
Don't forget the mattresses! Our range of Mattresses & Mattress Protectors include various fabrics, fillings and levels of support. Be sure to double-check the required mattress size in the bed description, as some may vary.
For safety reasons, the top bunk of any Bunk Bed may require a slightly thinner mattress to ensure there is enough space between the sleeping position and the top of the safety guard - please bear this in mind when shopping.
For all the fun of the top bunk, but without the spare bunk underneath, take a look at our High Sleepers & Mid Sleepers. These beds are also a fab space-saving solution as you can use the space underneath for other furniture such as drawers, desks or even wardrobes.
It is recommended that children 6 years and older should only use the top bunk, however, the bottom bunk can be used as soon as you feel your child is ready to sleep in a single bed.
Bunk beds for kids are designed to conform to BS EN 747. It is important that you make sure the bed is properly assembled and constructed so that it does not have sharp edges or gaps wider than 5cm.
Due to the height, and requirement to climb up and down a ladder safely, it is advised that the child should be 6 years and above to sleep in the top bunk.
Yes, they can. As our bunk beds are made from solid wood, they are able to support the weight of an adult, so they too can join in the fun.
A combination of design, looks, style, colour and budget. We have also bunks that have matching furniture so if you are after some extra furniture or storage then this may be right for you.
There are a few different types of bunk beds that you can choose from. The most common are standard bunk beds, which have two beds - one on top of the other. Triple sleeper bunk beds are also popular and have three beds - two on top and one below. This is a great option for kids rooms, as it allows for multiple children to sleep in the same room or for guests.
- The regular bunk bed has two sets of bunk beds, which means two sets of mattresses and two height platforms.
- The double bunk bed has two sets of bunk beds which are each single in size.
Bunk beds come in a range of colours and designs to fit any needs. Double bunk beds can save space while still allowing plenty of room for friends to have fun together.

Are bunk beds the right choice for me?
Bunk beds are typically used for kids, but they can also be a great option for adults who need to sleep more than two people. Bunk beds offer a number of advantages and disadvantages, so make sure you think it through.
Common problems with living room space include limited bed space and lack of storage. Luckily, our range of bunk beds offers the perfect solution to these dilemmas. We pride ourselves on providing top quality, hassle-free furniture for children so that you can focus more on your child rather than your interior décor.
Bunk beds help to make bedtime more fun for your kids by providing a place where they can play. These beds are perfect for growing children - you only need to buy bunk beds once, as the bed will continue to grow with them.
Bunk beds are safe for children, but they should be used with caution. It is important to ensure that the bunk bed is not too high or low and that the mattress isn't too thin or too thick, there should be a maximum space between the top of the mattress on the top bunk and the top edge of the guard rail of 160mm. It is also important to ensure that the mattress has a firm, solid base and that it meets all of the current safety standards for mattresses.
All bunk beds in the UK should be designed to conform to BSEN747, of which the following requirements are included (to name a few):
* have guard rails on either side of the top bunk
* be robust in construction
* contain no sharp or pointy edges
* have no gaps larger than 75mm, so as not to cause a snagging hazard.
The guard rails on the top bunk are raised quite high to prevent your child from rolling off the bed.
A mattress suitable for bunk beds is typically thinner and more supportive than a standard mattress. It is recommended that the distance from the top of the mattress to the top of the guard rail on the top bunk is no less than 1600mm.
A bunk bed can be used with either a pocket springs, traditional springs, kids mattresses or any mattress that is rated for use on a bunk bed. The latter should be able to support the weight of two people.
If you need more storage space, it may be worth considering loft or bunk beds that include storage underneath.
