Beds for children

This collection of beds has come a long way from being simply smaller versions of that of their parents. Manufacturers of beds & mattresses now understand that children have different needs & demands to adults. The range of children's beds online is huge & there is sure to be one for everybody's taste.

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds have always been very popular for a child's room. Two beds are on top of each other, taking up the floor space of one only. Even if you have only one child, this is very practical for when friends come to sleep over. Frames are sturdy & made of metal or wood, usually pine, with a specially designed ladder to reach the top bunk. The bottom bed could even be a double, to sleep two children. The metal framed Bunk Bed is available in many attractive styles & colours.

Cabin Beds

Cabin beds are also called storage beds & Captains beds. They incorporate drawers & or shelves in the sturdy frame of the bed & are obviously very practical for a child's room. They are usually slightly higher than normal & could be raised enough to warrant a ladder of their own. Sometimes, instead of drawers or shelves, they have a pull-out bed underneath, suitable for a friend to sleep on. There is usually enough space for the mattress & bedding to remain on the pull-out part, making it an instant bed. This is also called a sleepover bed. Truckle beds are loose beds that slide underneath the main bed, supplying extra sleeping space.

Study - Studio Beds

Similar to cabin beds are study beds. They are also raised off the ground & have enough space underneath them for a desk, a book case & packing space for study material. These are suitable for older children, even teenagers. Some of these beds are very high to allow enough space for the student sitting underneath, as well as for a personal computer.

Day Beds - Guest Beds

Another very practical idea is the day bed; it stands as a sofa through the day & many people use cushions along the back to give it that lived in look. This makes it great for when friends come round as they can all chill out without feeling like they are just sat on a bed. Although this was originally designed to be a practical bed in a girl's room, there are now many available as Guest Beds. This is achieved by having the trundle bed underneath that can be pulled out as and when required. In addition to this you can also buy traditional divan guest beds as well as models in wood or metal. All these types are very good to have for holidays & weekends.

Character & Themed Beds

Very popular with young children is the themed bed. These are available in exciting shapes, such as a car for little boys & a castle & Princess Carriages for little girls. Usually the bedding people buy such as a quilt & pillow cases will match the theme so that the room is totally character based. Many of these beds are can be smaller than a full sized bed & just the right size for small children. Young girls as well as teenagers like the romance of a four poster bed with drapes or lacy curtains suspended from the frame. Tent beds are high beds with a covered space underneath where children can play & pretend it is a tent. This idea has been developed even further with options now available as pirate ship beds, Space crafts & Lorries to mention a few.

Regardless of the bed you choose for your child it is important to purchase a supportive mattress to allow their body to fully develop & grow healthily
