Keep in mind that no matter the bed height, you can choose from three different bed finishes (white, natural or chestnut), three entrance types (straight ladder, angled ladder or staircase), three mattress sizes (twin, full or Queen), and finally three bed end styles (slat, curved or panel). Easily customize the right look for your chid's room!

Did you know that our bunk bed ladders and slides are reversible? They can go on the right or left side of the bed's front OR opt for a side entry!
Low Bunk Bed HeightYounger children love bunk beds. In fact, it's often their first "big kid" bed after their toddler bed. If you started with a Maxtrix toddler bed, it will easily convert to a low bunk bed simply by adding leg extenders and a second bed. If you are starting new, low bunk beds are recommended for children around age six (but as a parent you know your child best!) Take a look at head room and bed height measurements below (assuming an 8' ceiling height):

If shopping low bunks, they are also fantastic as a base bed for extra play accessories like slides, underbed curtains and top tents - all of which can be removed when your child outgrows them. Slide safely out of our solid wood beds, and choose from many fabric color combinations for tents and curtains.

Mid Bunk Bed HeightAdding about five inches more to the height of the low bunk, the Mid Bunk is a great option for slightly older children around age eight. The ladder or staircase entry will have one more step, but there's still a lot of head room between the two beds and between the top bed and ceiling.

Mid Bunks can also easily convert into play bunks with an extension piece added to the under-bed curtains, but we often advise against top tents unless your ceiling is higher than eight feet.

High Bunk Bed HeightThose with older kids around ten or rooms with higher ceilings have the option to go even higher with our High Bunk Beds. While this option gives you the most headroom between the two beds, your head space up top is a bit more limited. For this reason, we recommend a low profile mattress at five inches width, which will allow for ample sitting height.

We recently introduced a slide platform, which enables even those with high beds to add a slide for fun! Our best selling Poof is a good example of this design:

Sleepovers are more popular in this age group so if you are looking to sleep several, you can also consider our high corner bunk beds with three or even four beds. These unique configurations are perfect for shared rooms, vacation homes, beach homes or sleepovers!
