High beds are the ideal solution for smaller children's rooms, as they combine a sleeping space with a play or workplace. Our bunk beds for children have a high fall protection and grow with. In doing so, they accompany the little ones for many years. In addition, we have variants for teenagers and adults. This means that you will find a safe solution for all ages. All our loft beds are customizable with numerous accessories and can be converted into one of the other cots with conversion sets.
The growing bunk bed is our best-selling bed. There are good reasons for this. It is the ideal entry into our high bed world, even if your child is actually too small for a bunk bed. Sounds contradictory? Yes, but the apparent contradiction is due to the great advantage of this bed. It can be built in 5 heights. At height 1, the lying surface is directly on the ground, so the bed can be used from the age of crawl. You already have all the parts for the later superstructures as a real loft bed. Safety is always paramount.

What makes high beds?
A loft bed is called when the lying surface is at least 60 cm above the ground. Depending on the model and the desired setting, the height in the area under the bed can be 217 cm. High beds thus allow a smart use of space even in small children's or youth rooms.
Safety plays a central role, especially in the case of high beds for children. For this reason, all our models have a very high failure protection, which far exceeds the DIN safety standard. So you can be reassured that your darling sleeps well protected. You can also use our extensive accessories to customize the loft bed – with a slide or climbing wall, the furniture becomes an adventure playground!
What species are there?
With us you will find four bed-bed basic models that can be expanded with a wide range of accessories. The growing bunk bed is the ideal and sustainable solution that your child can use from crawling age to teenage years. The alternative for limited room height is the half-height bed. Both models are already suitable for children of crawling age. For the slightly larger, the cuddly corner bed, which has a cuddly corner under the bed, is suitable. Your darling can retreat there – for playing, reading or even smouldering. Our youth bed-high is suitable for children from the age of ten and offers a lot of space under the bed. The student high bed goes even higher: at a height of more than two metres, you sleep comfortably above things.
What are the advantages of a high bed?
High beds are a very space-saving solution for almost every child's room. They offer besides a place to sleep and relax, also space to play and have fun. Especially in small rooms, they are the welcome space wonders. This way, you offer your child a sheltered sleeping place that feels homely, but still plenty of space to play. The space below the sleeping level can be optimally used for various functions, e.g. with a desk as a learning and workplace, a cuddly corner or a playground. By climbing frequently on the high bed, the children develop a very good body awareness and train their motor skills. They learn to trust their bodies.
Conversion possibilities for our other models (e.g. in a bunk beds) make our growing high beds unlimited use.
Choosing the right bed for the child
High beds offer many advantages. But which model is the right one? One of the most important factors is the height of the room. Many new apartments have a ceiling height of approx. 250 cm – ideal for high beds for children and many other models that are no higher than approx. 200 cm. A student high bed requires higher ceilings; here we recommend a room height of approx. 285 cm. For smaller rooms we offer semi-high beds.
Our bunk beds are available for different mattress dimensions. While a common mattress size for a cot is 90x200, we have many other dimensions. For example, the growing bunk bed can also be 140x200 in size.
Next, you decide on a type of wood: we offer pine and beech. Pine is softer and visually more vibrant, beech is harder, darker and visually slightly more homogeneous.
With the surface, you also have the choice: untreated, oiled-waxed or colored (especially popular in recent years the high bed is painted white).
The age of the child
The age of the child plays an equally important role. In the crawling age, the bed should be directly at ground level. This is made possible by our growing bunk bed, which grows larger and larger with age. The planning of the offspring can also have an influence on the decision: If your darling soon shares the room with a brother or a sister, a bunk bed is worth considering. Finally, the question arises as to the design wishes, i.e. how you want to use the space under the loft bed.
Is my child safe?
Whether a child is safe in a bunk bed depends on 2 factors.
On the one hand, the constructive elements of the bed:
* Is the fall protection sufficiently high?
* Is it stable enough?
* Are there handles on the ladder?
* Do the distances of the components of DIN EN 747 correspond, so that clamping hazards are excluded?
On the other hand, the motor and mental developmental status of the child is decisive at what height he can sleep safely.
Since our foundation, the safety of high beds has been a central concern for us. For this reason, our high beds are equipped with a high drop protection, which not only meets the safety standard DIN EN 747, but far exceeds it. When manufacturing the beds in our master workshop near Munich, we attach the highest importance to valuable materials and the most careful workmanship. As a result, Billi-Bolli's loft beds are very safe. The growing bunk bed is already suitable for babies at height 1 (ground level), further height swells have to be adjusted to the age and level of development of the child. In addition to the high drop protection, we offer you an extensive safety accessory – from protective boards to roll-out protection to ladder and slide grilles – that make the high beds even safer.

Are there any drawbacks?
To make beds or move in, you have to climb into the loft bed. This can be considered a welcome little fitness exercise or also find a bit annoying. It's not difficult.
If the recommendations on the height of the structure are not taken into account, the risk of falling down remains
With or without accessories?
The possibilities to design a bunk bed with accessories are enormous. Without accessories, it looks rather simple and neutral, with accessories the children's high bed becomes an adventure playground.
The accessories can be roughly divided into three categories: safety, experience value (optical or motor), storage areas and storage space.
Safety can be increased with additional protective boards, safety grilles for the conductor area or the conductor protection. For the very youngest there are baby grids.
The experience value of the high bed increases enormously with the installation of themed boards: Our themed boards transform the bed into a berth bed for the pirate son or into a knight's bed for the daughter, who wants to be a princess in the high bed. Our high bed inspires girls and boys alike and turns the children's room into an adventure room!
The urge for movement can be lived out by a high bed with slide, fire brigade pole, climbing rope, climbing wall and rungs wall. Depending on the type of accessories, the space requirement for the loft bed may increase, especially for the slide. This must be taken into account when selecting.
With the large range of accessories from Billi-Bolli, you can design the loft bed according to your taste. You can also find the appropriate decoration elements from us.
Use storage and storage accessories to use the area under the loft bed skillfully.
In order to adapt to changing demands, elements that make it a cot should be removed so that it can also be used by adolescents.
Notes on the use of the loft bed
* Follow the instructions on the age-appropriate height.
* Do not overwhelm your child and, in case of doubt, choose the lower height.
* Watch your child and be there when they first climb into the new bunk bed to help them.
* Check the stability of the bed regularly and tighten the screws if necessary.
* Pay attention to a child-friendly mattress, once in terms of lying properties and ecological compatibility. We recommend our Prolana mattresses.
High beds are a lot of fun for children, especially with appropriate accessories. If the accessories are found to be outdated after a few years, but can be dismantled, nothing stands in the way of further use.
The Billi-Bolli high beds are so flexible that they can always be adapted to changing needs, so they are a long-term purchase. With our conversion kits, you can expand a bunk bed to a bunk bed – or a bunk bed to two growing bunk beds. Buying new beds is unnecessary, which conserving all of our natural resources and your financial resources.
