Passionate companies often begin their journey in a garage. This is also where Peter Orinsky developed and built the very first children’s loft bed for his son Felix 32 years ago. It was very important for him to only use natural materials, provide strong safety features, clean workmanship as well as a high degree of flexibility to ensure long-term use. The sophisticated modular system has been so well received over the years that the successful family business Billi-Bolli emerged – complete with master craftsmen working in our very own Workshop in the east of Munich. By communicating closely with customers Billi-Bolli keeps refining and enhancing their children’s furniture range constantly. After all, satisfied parents and happy children are our greatest motivation. More about us…
Billi-Bolli children’s beds are available for a wide variety of mattress sizes, making it easy for you to find the ideal bed for your particular room, needs and wishes. This way you can take full advantage of the available space.
The most popular mattress size is 90 × 200 cm. For single beds, this is in general the most prevalent mattress size in Germany. 100 × 200 cm is the second most popular size for our children’s beds. If a parent often sleeps in the same bed as their child or if more space for playing is needed, you can also select a more spacious option instead, such as 120 × 200 cm or 140 × 200 cm. For particularly challenging room situations (e.g. narrow alcoves or niches) we also offer beds for smaller mattress sizes with 80 cm width or 190 cm length. We even provide suitable kids’ beds for mattresses up to 220 cm in length, allowing you to use our beds “forever”, as many children nowadays grow rather tall.
For the Corner Bunk Bed as well as the corner versions of the Both-Up Bunk Beds and Triple Bunk Beds there are fewer mattress size options to choose from. If you plan to convert a loft bed or bunk bed into a corner bed at some point, we recommend choosing a mattress size compatible with a corner bed now already. This will make the conversion easier later on.
If you need a children’s bed for a custom size mattress, please contact us.
The total size of the bed results from calculating the mattress size and the wooden construction parts. The outside dimensions are available on the respective product pages of our kids’ beds.
For our children’s beds we recommend the use of mattresses with a minimum thickness of 10 cm. However, the thickness should not exceed 20 cm (for sleeping levels with high fall guard ⓘ) and 16 cm (for sleeping levels with basic fall guard ⓘ) respectively.
If you buy a mattress from us, you can choose from any of the mattress sizes we offer for our kids’ beds.
If you already have a “Single” mattress (35 × 75 in, United Kingdom), it can be used with our 90 × 190 cm beds.
If you already have a “Twin” mattress (38 × 75 in, United States), it can be used with our 100 × 190 cm beds.
If you already have a “Double/Full” mattress (53 × 75 in), it can be used with our 140 × 190 cm beds.
For our kids’ beds, we recommend choosing the ecological mattresses “Nele Plus” and “Nele Comfort” by PROLANA, or alternatively, the more affordable foam mattresses.
The surface area of sleeping levels equipped with protection boards (the standard configuration for e.g. the kids’ loft bed and the upper sleeping levels of all bunk beds) is slightly narrower than specified because the boards ⓘ are attached on the inside. If you already have a mattress for children that you would like to continue to use, it needs to be somewhat flexible to fit. However, if you are intending to buy a new mattress anyway, we recommend that you order a 3 cm narrower version of the respective children or teen mattress (e.g. 87 × 200 cm instead of 90 × 200 cm) for a less tight fit with the protection boards and it will also make changing the sheets easier. For all the mattress sizes we offer, you have the option to choose the 3 cm narrower variant.
