Bunkie Board Vs Bunk Bed
If you guessed that a bunkie board’s name was derived from the popular kid’s bedroom piece, the bunk bed, you are correct. A box spring and innerspring mattresses go together, and so do bunkie boards and bed frames.
With bunk beds, space can be an issue. The top bunk often leaves the person who sleeps up there being way too close to the ceiling.
Therefore, bunkie beds are a good option for bunk beds as it already has slats, and it provides adequate support. The bunkie bed is a bit visible on a bunk bed, but also invisible enough where it still looks aesthetically pleasing in a bedroom.
Bunkie Board Vs Box Spring
Changing your mattress or flipping it every few months was a thing when we were younger. This evened out the stress that the box spring put on the mattress. Today, an old reliable box spring may not have been able to withstand the weight of a mattress or be sturdy or stable enough. A bunkie board can, as you lay it directly on the floor and put the mattress over it, giving the bed and mattress the most reliable form of support.
