Children’s Beds

I am in the market for a new children’s bed, as I am trying to de-clutter and re-organise the children’s room. As usual, there are so many amazing beds available that it is almost impossible to choose one! If left to my own devices, I would fill up a whole dormitory…

Anyway, I wanted to show you some of my favourites:

  • The Petit Pan bamboo bed is the one I think I might get. It is small, simple and well built. I like the fact that it is actually a folding bed, so in a few years it can be a spare bed that we can pull out when guests turn up.
  • The Ikea white iron bed we already have and I believe so do 90% of my friends. The big advantage of this one is not only its price, but the fact that it is telescopic, so it can either measure 120cm, 150cm or 180cm; which is perfect for people in flats with limited space.
  • I love the Oeuf Bed because of its environmental credentials and the sleek, modern design. It looks so safe for a toddler or a small child to sleep in and not fall out.
  • This bunk bed is great for an indecisive person like me! You can either keep it as a bunk or make two singles out of it. I really like the flexibility of it, as kids change and I can imagine them getting tired of climbing up and down (or at least their mothers might get tired of it!).

Now the big question is: What to choose?!

What about Leander? We have one and it’s awesome – just bought the guard rail yesterday and still looks gorgeous!

I totally forgot about the Leander bed! Good call, I like the fact that goes from crib to big kids bed.

How to make decision without seeing the room? Depends what kind of style you have . On the 2 photo is a bed for some romantic room, the 3 a bit modern look, the 1 is for me looking a bit like for a holiday house on the beach ;-D…and the 4, hmmm most neutral.

We have the IKEA bed, but is one of the few here in the US. We absolutely love it but are now having a hard time getting our 2.5 yr old to stay in bed (unrelated to what type of bed we picked of course).

Ha that’s a hard one, I remember someone saying that you cannot interact with the kids when they get out of bed. Just pick them up and put them back into their bed again and again, until they stop!

We have bunkbeds from the White Company which the boys love – they are white which means that bright bedinen can change the theme depending on how we feel about the week. Like the one which you show, they can be turned into singles as well and, one thing which I love is that they have an extra high top bunk so I can sit and read books on the bottom bunk without bashing my head against the top one…

Oh, I really like that bunk. I don’t suppose they deliver to the UK though?

It’s lovely isn’t it? AMPM actually is part of the La Redoute group, but I just checked and they don’t seem to deliver to the UK…

We went with a similar bunkbed but in white, as our kids (boy & girl) share a room. It’s also easier to match other items, like the Ikea Expedit bookcase in white we got for them. Only downside to the bunkbed setup is changing the sheets on the bed up top. I haven’t perfected that yet, even with fitted sheets.

I keep looking at that bunk bed, so cool! But the changing of the sheets issue as pointed out by Ursula makes me careful. I would hate it! The kids would love it though… (the bed, not the changing of the sheets I presume)

Actually a friend of mine has a bunk bed for her kids and it is easy – she just gets the kids to make the beds and to put on the sheet and take it off!
