What to consider when choosing a kids bed?
Aside from brainstorming all your favourite kids bedroom ideas, when it comes to children’s bedrooms there are a lot of safety considerations to think about. Firstly, it’s important you choose the right bed for your child’s age group. You should also consider whether your bed needs safety rails. Safety rails should be made a priority for young children to reduce their chances of falling out of bed. We’d also suggest choosing a bed that is lower to the ground in this case.
You should also consider which design of bed is best for your child’s bedroom. For older children consider a single divan bed – this will provide plenty of extra storage to help them keep their room tidy as they grow. Bunk beds and high sleepers are a popular option to maximise larger spaces. Don’t forget to consider ceiling hight when opting for an elevated bed.
It's also essential that you consider the delivery and installation of your bed. If your child’s bedroom is difficult to get to you may wish to opt for a smaller bed or a flatback bed frame – this way you can be sure that the bed will fit through tight hallways and narrow staircases.
Kids Bedroom Furniture Ideas
Once you’ve selected the right bed, it’s time to consider furniture. Choose from spacious wardrobes which will see your little one right through to adulthood or a set of handy chest of drawers to store clothes easily and conveniently. Complete any nursery with a chair or stool, a great addition for breastfeeding mums or for a bedtime story.
