No one wants an uncomfortable or broken bed. Reduced amounts of sleep have been proven to increase stress and in the long-term can cause serious health issues. So the process in which you decide on a bed for yourself or someone else is key, the list of benefits they offer can go on forever. Everyone has different needs when it comes to sleeping, for example do you prefer a softer or more solid mattress? We have compiled the most popular types of beds for children, because if you’re a parent you’ll know that making sure they have enough sleep is vital. Otherwise, you may end up hanging off the edge of your bed, when they come to sleep with you! Here are the most popular types of beds for kids.

Storage beds

One type of bed for children is the storage bed. This particular type of bed has many storage compartments for all your child’s personal belongings. If your child has lots of toys, clothes, and books, you might want to consider functional storage beds. This is ideal if you do not want to install many cupboards, wardrobes, and dressers in the room to make room for more space to play. The storage compartments are located under the bed, which opens to the sides. The built-in shelves in the bed frames are also common designs that provide more space for personal items for children.

Loft beds

One of the most popular beds for children is the loft bed. You can have the bed raised near the ceiling. The lower part can be another bed, a sofa, a desk, or a playhouse. If you have two children sharing a bedroom, another bed on the floor-level is perfect. If you want to buy loft beds for young children, there are several designs to choose from. Many children prefer this type of bed because it has a sense of play and character. Some even choose a specific theme or design that suits their personality.

Beds with slides

You may have seen loft beds for children that come with slides. When it’s time to sleep, kids can use the ladder to get to bed. In the morning they can get out of bed with a slide on the other side, a great start to the day! If they feel bored with their toys, they can sit on the loft bed and enjoy the slide in their bedroom. A playhouse and a bed in one is always a popular choice for a child’s bedroom.

Fantasy beds

Toddlers daydream about many different things. Whether it’s animals, castles, cars, or anything else. If your child has a specific interest, it may be worth buying a bed that fits the image. There are beds for children that look like dollhouses, castles, spaceships and more. 

The disadvantage of this type of bed, however, is the lack of versatility. Give it a few years, and your child may get bored with the design and look for the age that is best for them. You can renew it or replace it with a simpler design. 

The above types of beds give you plenty of choice when searching for new furniture for a child’s bedroom. If you’d prefer to hire the bed, feel free to get in touch to find out more about what we offer.
