I need some information from you ladies. I just got a new bunk bed matress fior my DS. Will he need a box spring. I found something called a bunke board that provides support. Is that the same thing?

Yes, a bunkie board is the same as a box spring. It takes up much less space though. On my kids bunk bed, we have a bunkie board on the bottom bunk (otherwise you couldn't get on there) then a box spring on top. The only reason we have a box spring is that we had it already, but would have had to buy a bunkie board.

I think it's optional. We've never used bunkie bed boards. H*** I've never heard of those til this post. LOL But box springs aren't really needed.

 A box spring MAY make it too high for the rail to keep the child in the bed --a bunkie board is thinner and then put a mattress on top of it.

We just use a piece of plywood wrapped in cloth the bunkie board is a wood frame with cardboard and a little padding on top my husband climed up into Te kids bed to put the sheet in and put his knee through the bunkie board!
