Getting a good night’s sleep is critical at any age, but especially for growing bones – so it’s important that parents find the perfect bed to support healthy sleeping habits for their child. We have sought to provide a comprehensive range of children’s beds, so no matter what age your child is, you’ll find exactly what you need at Barker and Stonehouse.
Choosing a children’s bed can be a complex decision, especially if you’re doing it for the first time as your child matures to a point where their cot is no longer suitable - a scenario that usually occurs around the age of three. To help with the decision-making process, you simply need to focus on three particular factors…
The first factor is the height and weight of your child; this will help determine whether smaller options such as toddler beds are worth considering, or whether a standard single children’s bed will be suitable. It’s also important to think not just of the height of your child today, but their projected development over the next 12 months or so. Choosing a kids’ bed with a little room for growth can often be the best idea, especially for younger children.
Next, you’ll want to consider the different types of children’s beds that are available. A standard single bed offers a classic simplicity that many families find absolutely perfect for their requirements. Alternatively, you may want to explore options that provide greater flexibility or offer space-saving solutions, such as cabin beds or mid sleeper beds with storage. You may find a small double bed with trundle is a highly convenient choice if you’re expecting plenty of sleepovers, as it can be turned into a guest bed in just a matter of seconds.
Of course, one of the most common options for families is the eternally popular bunk beds, which make efficient use of space in any bedroom. While bunk beds are most often associated with siblings, they can also be considered a ready-made sleepover solution. Bunk beds are generally recommended for children over the age of six, and offer an element of flexibility that is sure to be appreciated for many years to come.
The final consideration for any parent seeking a new kids’ bed is the style. As the largest item in the room, it’s essential to find a look that both you and your child love. When it comes to options for children, our beds are available in a variety of different designs – ranging from contemporary loft beds for style-conscious teens, to luxury kids beds for both girls and boys. Whatever your existing décor, we’re sure you’ll discover the perfect match for your child’s bedroom at Barker and Stonehouse.
So, whether you’re looking for a small double trundle bed, bunk beds, or a classic child’s single bed, browse our quality selection online today and find the ideal model for your child’s requirements.
