Probably a silly question, but will they hold a regular twin mattress? We are looking at bunkbeds for Addy and Kate since they will now have to share a bedroom with baby #3 arrives. Just curious if Addy's current twin mattress will fit it. Some of the places that sell bunkbeds also advertise bunk bed mattresses. I am assuming there is no difference as a twin bed is a twin bed, but want to double check.
They will hold a regular twin mattress, you just want to make sure the depth of the top bunk will be enough so that the mattress isn't flush with the rail. A bunkbed mattress is usually half the depth of a standard twin mattress.
At least that's the impression I was given when we were looking this past winter. Most held 2 standard mattresses, but some were pretty shallow on the top bunk and there was really no protection from the rails on the displays with standard mattresses.
Beds have mattress depth sizes but standard ones will fit, pillow top will be too high but you can use that one on the bottom. We got a normal mattress for maddie's loft bed and it's perfect. "Bunk" mattresses tend to have no springs I think.
There are long twins .. and regular twins. I know some of the fire stations I worked on, they had twin beds in the bunk rooms and ordered long twin mattresses and beds because they fit adults better. Also, Ikea mattresses don't seem to be standard size.. just fyi.
The beds would hold the twin mattress but there might be one issue the twin mattress may be of the greater height so it would be difficult for the person to sleep at the lower bunk beds portion, you just make sure of its height remaining is cool.
