The size of the bedroom will play a big role in the bed size you buy.
If space is limited, opt for bed with in-built storage. Bunks beds are great if your children are sharing a room or if you have limited space or need an extra bed every now and then. However, bunk beds are not suitable for children under the age of nine.
Nowadays, parents are opting for bigger beds for the kids. A large bed will be more comfortable for night-time snuggles and reading to your child and will provide room as they grow into teen.
It is important to get your children involved in the process of purchasing their bed, as they will be the ones sleeping on it. Test out suitable beds and mattresses together.
Common mistakes when buying a kid’s bed
- When you buy a mattress for your child, you need to consider their growing bodies, and choose one that is going to give them the support and flexibility they need as they grow and develop.
- Your child should test the mattress first for comfort. Set budget and do your research, as a good mattress doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
- Do not buy outlandish bed you will later regret.
- Avoid buying too much furniture. Decide on the important items, such as one side table, rather than two and stick to it.
