Bunk Bed Ladders - The Key to Safe and Stylish Sleeping Spaces

Sharing a bedroom is a common experience as kids grow older, especially when space is limited. Bunk beds are a brilliant solution, and bunk bed ladders are a key part of the setup. You want the safest, most practical option for your children, while still making sure their bunk bed fits their style.


Safety is obviously a vital concern, but space-saving and the “coolness” factor matter too! At Strictly Beds and Bunks, we understand these decisions. With over two decades of experience helping parents find perfect sleep solutions, we’re here to help you make the right ladder choice for your kids’ bunk bed.


In this blog, we’ll consider factors like:

  • • Child’s Age. Meeting safety standards is crucial (top bunks are best for 6+).
  • • Abilities. How well does your child climb?
  • • Space. Safety features for peace of mind.


Let’s find the perfect fit for your family!

Bunk Beds with Ladders

Ladders are the traditional choice for bunk beds, and for good reason. Here’s why they remain a popular option:


  • • Space Savers. Ladders have a minimal footprint. If you’re working with a smaller room, a ladder helps you make the most of the vertical space without eating up extra floor area.
  • • Affordability. Simpler designs mean bunk beds with ladders are usually more budget-friendly. This can be a deciding factor for many families.
  • • The “Coolness” Factor. Let’s face it, kids often perceive bunk bed ladders as the most fun and adventurous component of their new sleeping arrangement.

Safety Features to Look for on Bunk Bed Ladders

Choosing a safe and sturdy ladder is an absolute must when it comes to bunk beds. Here’s what to keep in mind:


  • • Secure and Stable. The ladder should be firmly attached to the bunk bed frame with no wobbles or movement. Strictly Beds and Bunks ladders include two fixing hooks for extra stability. Check that all bolts and fixings are tight and secure.
  • • Angled Design. A slightly angled ladder offers easier climbing for children, compared to a fully vertical one. This angle also helps to improve stability.
  • • Comfortable Rungs. Ladder rungs should be wide enough for little feet to find a good grip and spaced appropriately for comfortable climbing.
  • • Sturdy Materials. Choose bunk beds made from heavy duty pine or high-quality metal ladders for maximum durability. Check the weight limits to ensure the ladder can support your child’s weight.
  • • Regular Inspections. Check the ladder regularly for any signs of wear, loose rungs, or cracks. It’s essential to maintain your bunk bed to ensure its ongoing safety.
  • • Additional Tip. Teach your children how to use the ladder safely. They should go up and down feet first and maintain a firm grip at all times. No messing around on the ladder!
