What You Need to Know About Different Kinds of Kids Beds
As a parent, keeping your children are safe and happy are two of the most important parts of the job.
There is a lot of focus on activities that accomplish that during the day, but what about at night?
Making sure that your child gets a good, safe night's sleep often comes down to the kind of bed you choose for them. You want something that will get them excited for bedtime--no easy task--and something that will keep them comfortable and safe all through the night.
There are a lot of options out there for kids beds, but it's important to figure out which one will be best for your specific child.
Below, we're reviewing what you need to know about the different types of beds out there, so you can pick the best one for your needs.
1. Themed Kids Beds
If you have a child who is a reluctant sleeper, a special themed kids bed may help him or her get more excited for bedtime. Some children dislike sleeping because they are afraid of the dark, so a themed bed could also make them feel more comfortable or secure.
Pay attention to your child's particular interests, and let that be your guide. If they love ships, then a boat bed could be a fun option, while a race car bed could be great for a child who loves watching those sporting events.
If you can't find a bed that aligns with something your child loves, consider looking for bedding--sheets, pillowcases, etc.--to accomplish the same idea.
2. Bunk Beds
Bunk beds are a natural choice if you have multiples or children who share a room, but they are worth considering even if you don't.
Bunk beds save space, which can make a big difference in smaller, kids bedrooms.
Bunk beds also make it easy for your child to have a friend over to stay the night. The promise of a sleepover can be a way to motivate good behaviour for your child, which is an added benefit of having bunk beds already in their room.
3. Beds with Built-in Storage
If you constantly are trying to get your child to pick up their room, you may way to consider a kids bed that can help.
A bed with an included storage drawer can help encourage kids to stay clean and organised. Often, in children's bedrooms, there is a lack of space to put everything, so your kids can't keep their room clean even if they want to.
A bed with a storage drawer built in as part of the frame goes a long way toward solving that problem.
