Deciding On The Most Suitable Bed For Your Child

by Jordan Miller on November 21, 2010

So you are designing a bedroom. Well, you need to consider far more than just sleeping. It’s true that you want to get your rest, but that isn’t all that will be happening in a bedroom especially for a child. For kids, their bedroom is their sanctuary. It should be as ideal as possible.

For kids, there are many different popular bed styles out there. You can try a twin size, a full size, a loft or platform, a canopy bed, even a bed shaped like a race car! Kids love a neat bed. They are not so picky about dresser or nightstand though, so don’t go all out there.

At college, kids become huge fans of captains beds or lofts. With these type of beds, you can maximize the space underneath with a desk, bookcase, or futon. Pretty much you can double the usable space in that section of a room by raising the bed.

Here’s the downside to a loft: the climb. Imagine getting up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water — and having to go down a ladder to get your drink, then climb back up the ladder to get back into bed. You need to be careful going up and down when you’re groggy.

Still, loft beds are really very popular. In fact, some people like these beds so much that they still use this style after college.

You probably are familiar with your bed frame options. There are the standard headboards, but also sleigh beds, tufted beds, more modern bed frames, and so on.

In general, you will be picking out a bed by material and color. You’ll either choose a wooden frame like oak, pine, or maple, or a metal or iron frame. The metal frames are usually painted in white, black or brown.

If you are also in the market for a dresser and nightstand, you will be able to match it to the bed with color and material if you want, but this is not necessary. You can always find unique, complimentary pieces that don’t exactly match, for an eclectic and unique look.
