What is a triple bunk bed?

A triple bunk bed is exactly as the name suggests, a bunk bed with three beds for sleeping. A triple bunk bed comes in a variety of configurations to match any type of room. Some of the bunks on this list are stacked 3 beds high while others utilize a trundle bed for a third sleeper or an l shaped layout. 

Are triple bunk beds safe?

Yes, triple bunk beds are safe when used correctly. Bunk beds today are built better than ever and have strict safety guidelines that manufacturers must adhere to. Each bunk has a guardrail to protect against falls as well as sturdy ladders for getting in and out of bed. It is important to get a proper mattress for your bunk bed. Most bunk beds require a thinner mattress that is 6″ or 8″ thick in order to keep the sleeper below the guardrail. If kids will be sleeping in the bunk it is always important to talk to them and show them the safest way to use a bunk bed. 

The different types of triple bunk beds

Triple bunk beds can come in a variety of different configurations in order to fit into all types of bedrooms and living spaces. Here are some of the different options:

Triple stacked: The most basic version of a triple bunk is the triple stacked option. This is when 3 beds are stacked on top of each other. This is a great option if you have high ceilings and for rooms that have a smaller square footage as it does not take up a lot of space. 

L-Shaped: An L-shaped bunk bed utilizes a standard double bunk layout with an attached loft as its third sleeper. This bed will fit perfectly in the corner of a room and is great for lower ceiling heights. You can also utilize the space underneath the loft portion for a desk, play area or storage. 

Trundle: The trundle version of the triple bunk is simply a standard double bunk with a trundle bed that can roll in or out from underneath the bottom bunk. This version is great for lower ceiling rooms or to accommodate an occasional third sleeper. The trundle can easily be put away when not in use. 

Queen/Full Size: A queen or full size triple bunk is great if adults or taller kids plan to be sleeping in the bunk bed. Most of the Queen or full size bunks utilize the triple stack layout.  

Other: As you will see in this post there are a variety of other triple bunk layout available to meet all types of sleepers, needs and layouts. Many of the products are versatile and allow you to take pieces apart and customize your layout.
