Can this be used for the trundle bed?
We are considering memory foam mattresses for a twin bed with trundle. Would you recommend this for the bottom, top, both parts, or we won't need it? 2yr old will sleep on top and 9yr old on the bottom.
Bunky board is good for kid's beds because it lowers the height of the bed if the mattress is not greater than 9 inches. I think that is their only purpose because not as functional as a standard box spring. Having said that, it suffices for support of any mattress on kid's beds. Although, memory foam is really heavy and does not have springs so I do not know. I would guess if kid is less than 80 lbs all is good for support. Trundles with solid bottoms or tight springs usually provide enough support for a good mattress. No need for bunky, but again the issue is lack of springs on memory foam, so do not know. Anyone else have this configuration???

Kid's bunk bed bunkie board
The dimensions on the "Living Spaces" bunkie board is 38" Width x 74" Length. I measured my kid's bunk bed and it showed 40" Width x 74" Length. Why is the bunkie board at living spaces smaller and won't it be a little too small for support?
I have regular size twin beds and these bunky boards work just fine.

dimensions are smaller than the mattress
I am wondering a similar thing to the other question. I want to get bunky boards for my eastern king, would 2 of the twin size bunkies work? My be measures 76" W x 79.5" L and the bunkies are 38x74. Two of them obviously for a king, making them 76x74....
As a rule, two standard twin bases are too short to fit underneath of either a King or Cal-King mattress.
However, we do offer Split Cal-King Bunkys (39274) and Split Eastern King Bunky Boards (75238) now because these pieces are larger than a regular twin. Please keep in mind that you will need to order two of each to support your mattress:
(39274) Sage Split Cal-King Bunky Board ($70)-
(75238) Sage Eastern King Split Bunky Board ($70)-

How much weight can the bunky board sustain when placed directly on the floor with a twin mattress sitting on top of it?
I am exploring sleeping solutions for my toddler whom I want to accustom to sleeping alone. I'd like to 1. Lay down with him to help him fall asleep; 2. Minimize height to limit injuries and grant him easy access; 3. keep mattress from sitting directly on the floor to minimize possibilities of collecting dust mites or mold; 4. keep cost down as this is a temporary arrangement and I already invested a lot in his organic mattress! I thought this bunky board might offer the perfect solution! Now I just need to know if it'll sustain the weight of the mattress, my son, and either me or his father.
It does what any support does for a mattress.
I have bought a couple of queen bunky boards in the past and used it under the mattress and have had no issues.
if it is a twin mattress then I see no problem in sharing the mattress with the bunky board under to sleep on .
also laying it on the floor seems to give them a better support but make sure the mattress is of a good quality as the kids do jump on the bed and multiple kids jumping can break any kind of support underneath. lower beds def guarantee that the kids will jump on it and i have used this type of arrangement for my kids when they rolled over at nights falling off the beds. I had a 160 lb grandmom manage my kids who were 28lbs on the twin bed.( 12 -14 months)

Does it come with the base?
Does the Bunky Board come with the base too as shown in the picture or is it just the board.
Just the bunky board. No base.

Can I add bed extenders to the bunky bed board to raise the bed higer?
We do not recommend adding extenders to the Sage Twin Bunky Board as this may make your mattress unstable when sleeping. We recommend a low profile foundation as this will raise the bed slightly if you are still interested in having your mattress higher than a bunky board, yet still lower than your standard foundation. You can view that here:

Will this work for a king size platform bed?
Recently purchased a king sized platform bed, would like to keep it as low as possible as far as profile wise. Will this work for that ?
No, the Sage Twin Bunky Board will not fit with a King size mattress. You will want to look at this bunky board set seen here for a fit that will work with a king size mattress:
