The Importance of Bunk Bed MattressesWritten by Dave Lavinsky
Bunk bed mattresses are perhaps most important kind of mattresses. This is because safety risks exist when wrong-sized bunk bed mattresses are purchased. As such it is critical to know precisely size of mattress you are seeking. After determining size of mattress you need, two factors to consider are firmness and construction. Firmness refers to comfort of mattress and making sure that it is consistent across all areas. Construction refers to how mattress is manufactured. A more expensive bunk bed mattress will often have thicker padding, higher coil counts, better wire gauge and/or a mattress pad.
Interestingly, while coil count is typically directly correlated with cost of a mattress, it has only a small impact on durability. When a mattress sags, rather, it is caused by padding. As a result, when comparing two bunk bed mattresses, you should look for one with thicker, better quality padding.
