5 Types of Beds for Kids

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 200

You may be a parent planning to buy his/her child a brand new bed. What is the best type of bed that will suit your child's needs? Before buying the first available bed in online stores or furniture shops, make sure you know the different options you have. Below are some of the most popular choices of beds for kids.

Bunk

If there are two or more children in the family, it's practical for two children to share one room. In this case, the most ideal is the bunk beds for kids. One bed is built on top of another. Unlike two separate beds for each child, it can accommodate two persons and save floor space. The elder child can occupy the top bunk while the younger one can stay more secure at the bottom bunk. It can also save you the extra cost of buying two separate beds.

Loft

A loft bed is like a bunk bed with the bottom bunk replaced with a space that can be used as a study, couch or playroom for the child. This is great for teenagers and even young adults, too. You can transform the bottom part by adding a desk, computer, lamp, and shelves. Loft beds usually come as a set, complete with the desk, drawers, and storage spaces. It will be easy to pick one that will fit the personality of your child.

Captain/Storage

Functionality is the key factor in the design of the captain/storage bed. It features several compartments or drawers that are built-in underneath the bed. Some also come with small shelves and drawers located at the headboard. Boys beds like these are ideal, especially for children who own several toys, books, and clothes. The clutter can be minimized with enough storage.

Canopy

A canopy is simply a four-poster style bed. It can either have a traditional look with intricate curves and embellishments or contemporary with simple lines and sleek finish. This is popular amongst the girls who fantasize about prince and princesses. Also, this would be a good long-term investment because canopy beds will always be a classic choice, even for adults. When girls grow up to be ladies, canopy beds will always be attractive.

Theme Beds

A theme bed can be anything from loft, canopy, captain, or bunk beds for kids. The difference lies in the additional design that makes it unique. You can pick from a variety of choices, from sports and cartoons to Disney princess and animal prints. The best part is you can choose based on the personality and preference of your son or daughter. Boys beds will look great with a soccer or cars theme, while girls would love a princess or ballerina design, or anything pink and feminine.

Whichever type of bed you decide to choose for your child, always make sure that it is appropriate for their age and needs. Loft and bunk beds are not ideal for toddlers who may easily trip and fall. You should also put into consideration the preference of your child. They are the ones who will be using and enjoying the bed after all.
