Bunk Beds

Where space is an issue you’ll want to get the best use you can from each piece of children’s furniture and a traditional bunk bed is ideal in this situation.

Kid’s really love these kind of contemporary designs and although the initial cost can be high these kind of bunk beds can prove to be economical when you consider the savings made on extra draw units, storage and shelving.

A word about mattresses…

A standard UK size single mattress is 90cm wide x 190cm and is commonly referred to as a 3 foot mattress (being 3′  wide x 6′ 3″ long). Some bunk beds and cabin beds, particularly brands made outside the UK such as Parisot and Stompa, require a non-standard size mattress which are slightly longer – usually 200cm (6′ 7″) If you need to buy a new mattress then it’s worth bearing in mind that Ikea stock this size as standard and some on-line retailers who specialise in just selling mattresses can often be a lot cheaper than buying from the bed retailer direct.

Mid and High Sleepers

The Scandinavians know a thing or two about style and for years their crisp clean finishes and preferences for minimalistic surroundings have influenced UK interior designers. Demand for Scandinavian furniture is still high, especially now that they’ve turned their attention to kids beds. Natural wooden beds with uncomplicated finishes in a simplistic style bring a feeling of space and lightness into a room – and in keeping with the minimalistic style, there is plenty of room to store away all that unnecessary clutter.

Nordic Midsleeper Bed

The Nordic Midsleeper beds are the ultimate in clever design and functionality. A single bunk bed on raised legs hides some handy storage solutions underneath such as a set of drawers, bookshelves and a desk which swivels out. All crafted out of natural light wood in a simple, yet elegant design. It is little wonder that the Nordic kids beds range is snapped up quicker than free chocolate in a sweet shop!

Scandinavian style mid-sleeper bed with combined storage

The Nordic Midsleeper is available as standard Single Size Mid-sleeper bed or as a Toddler to Single bed which comes with a conversion kit to transform the bed into a full size single when the need arises. Both beds come in either white or natural pine and will require a mattress which are sold separately.

Reece Midsleeper

This is the stylish Reece Midsleeper cabin bed and a very popular choice. It has understairs shelving, a pull-out desk with small drawer to keep pens and pencils in, cupboards and side shelves.

 Midsleeper style cabin bed with desk and storage drawers

It’s ideal for those small rooms that look cluttered with just one set of drawers! And of course it has a smooth, curved finish that is utterly elegant.

Nordic Highsleeper Bed

Now these beds are exactly as described — high sleepers! So long as your children’s rooms don’t have low ceilings then highsleeper beds are a great way to utilise that space above your head. A single high bunk bed is perched on long secure legs that contain quite an impressive array of bedroom furniture all tucked neatly away. You can have a futon, desk and shelves underneath the highsleeper, making it ideal for small children’s rooms.

High sleeper bed with desk and shelves

The Nordic Single High-sleeper Bed is available with a natural pine finish with either a blue or pink seat cushion. This bed also requires a non-standard size mattress which is sold separately.

 a romper suit and sleeping bag combined

Now how cool is this idea – a sleeping bag you can wear? The MusacBag for kids allows them to move about freely while keeping snug as a bug in a rug – and the reversible zips are very easy to operate so they can undo the arms and legs whenever they need to.  Available in blue or pink from Firebox the kid’s MusacBags are hand-washable and have a dual layer which means they are  suitable  for use where the temperature falls to -1 °C.  The only problem I can  foresee  with this design is that they will want to wear them all of the time – but I suppose it’s one way of cutting down the heating bills?

Children's sleeping pod in blue or pink

The Gelert Sleeping Pod JNR is a kid’s sleeping bag designed to allow free movement so they can curl up inside and sleep in any position – unlike with a regular sleeping bag which can be quite restrictive unless they sleep perfectly straight.

The bright colours of the Friendly Croc Sleeping Bag will be a fantastic addition to your child’s bedroom.

Toddler Beds

It’s surprising how fast children grow and sooner or later the time will come when you want to upgrade form a cot to a proper bed. There is no perfect age for when this occurs — all kids are different after all. However, the best way to make the transition is start with a toddler bed which is just like a full-sized single bed but just a bit smaller and lower down to the floor so it’s easy to get in an out of. Ideally you’ll want a bed which incorporates a safety rail at one or both sides, just in case, but you’ll probably be surprised just how quickly your youngster adapts to his or her new sleeping space.

Budget Toddler Beds Under £100

You can find quite a selection of junior beds in the less than £100 range although you’ll usually have to buy a separate mattress which can push the price up significantly. Some retailers will sell the basic frame for a very low price in the hope you’ll buy a mattress at the same time and this is how they make a profit. It makes sense, therefore, to check if you can buy a mattress elsewhere and if it is a standard size: 700mm x 1400mm (70 cm— 140 cm) or  27 ½ inches — 55 inches.

The Country Toddler Bed Antique from Kiddicare is an ideal starter bed, it’s the perfect height for your little one to climb into bed independently. Two slatted side safety rails at the head end help prevent little ones falling out while wooden slats also add a touch of familiarity. In a choice of two classic finishes you’ll be able to mix and match this lovely new toddler bed with existing furniture to keep your baby’s changing nursery looking good through the years. The frame is made from solid pine with a slatted base. A great value first bed.

Bed buying and sleep advice for parents.Although junior beds are recommended for kids aged from 2 to 6 there are no set rules for when they should progress to a full size bed and you’ll need to play it by ear where your own child is concerned. Bear this in mind though when buying  your bed or a replacement mattress as it may need to last longer than you might first imagine.

The Sleep Council have published a useful guide for parents on all matters sleep related  entitled The  Good Night Guide for Children   – download a free copy here (PDF).

Tesco Bunk Beds

You normally wouldn’t think of going to Tesco for children’s beds would you? I mean, since when have you been grocery shopping and suddenly found yourself in the kid’s bunk beds section? However in their online store, Tesco sell a lot more than fruit and veg, and the Tesco kid’s bunk beds range is not only fantastic value for money but stylish, practical and well made too.

Pine bunk bed with desk underneathI’ll be honest and say that I didn’t know quite what to expect when looking at Tesco’s bunk beds, but I have been more than pleasantly surprised at the variety of styles on offer, the top bed manufacturing names and the prices. In fact for the same brands with other stores, Tesco came out on top for pricing.

As far as styles go, well the choice is excellent! You can buy wooden bunk beds, triple bunk beds, detachable bunk beds, futon bunk beds, metal bunk beds and bunk beds with in-built desks for added storage. I doubt there is a bunk bed type that Tesco don’t supply!

Pine bunk bed with pink beddingFor children’s rooms where space is an issue then bunk beds are ideal of course, for providing that extra space for when friends want to sleepover; however how much more convenient would it be to utilise all of the space the bed takes up into much needed storage space too?

Cleverly designed bunks like this Ashley Pine High Sleeper provide just that; incorporating a top bunk bed, pull-out guest bed, shelves and a desk! There are plenty more space saving ideas in the Tesco Bunk Beds section.

And for those who want just a plain and simple child’s bunk at a great price, well Tesco is known for giving great value for money and that’s just as true here. You can pick up a wooden pine bunk bed with adjustable ladder for a mere £130! And the reviews of their beds are a testament to the kind of high quality that customers have come to expect from Tesco.

So when searching for cheap kid’s bunk beds, take a look in the places you never would have thought of for some surprising finds. You can even order it along with your weekly shopping! As the saying goes — every little helps!

Maxtrix

The Maxtrix range of modular children’s bedroom furniture available from John Lewis has nothing to do with  The Matrix  film other than  creating furniture that is not always what it seems  … Maxtrix is a furniture system from the US  which starts with a basic concept, like a sturdy bed and uses that ‘base’ to  design and create fun, imaginative and wonderful children’s furniture that has many more than just the one use. Read more about Maxtrix  children’s furniture.

Children's white bunk bed and co-ordinating accessories

What you are essentially doing is building upon the bed with accessories such as ladders, leg extensions to raise the bed up, storage units, decorative features and so on to create something truly special that can be changed and re-invented as many times as you wish! The Maxtrix modular furniture system truly does grow with your child, providing space for sleep, play, storage and work from their early years right up until their teenage years.

Children's white wooden bedstead

Maxtrix Single Bed ….

This single bedstead  is the starting point of the Maxtrix design and it’s appropriate that with this dream children’s furniture, we start with the bed! The other components of the Maxtrix Modular System are able to be fixed securely to the bed to turn it into a bunk bed, loft bed, L shaped bed or parallel bunk. The range of components that fit onto the bed are huge, allowing you to fully personalise it for your own needs. The material is solid wood so it will last for many years to come and is surprisingly easy to assemble.

Stack them, sit on them, use them as props, comforters – whatever you like! And don’t worry if they get too boisterous as the covers are removable and fully washable!

Colourful Storage Accessories

Maxtrix MaxPacks

But what to keep all those accessories in when the pirate ship is anchored for the night and the children need to return to the land of slumber? Try these sturdy Maxtrix MaxPacks which are made to compliment the Maxtrix bedroom furniture and fit neatly onto any of the loft or bunk bed rails with industrial strength velcro, so they don’t even have to come down from the castle tower to tidy away their things! Sometimes the best of ideas are the simplest as these MaxPacks storage accessories testify.

Fantastic, innovative and creative ideas from the people of Maxtrix!

Metal Beds

The preference for metal beds started in the early nineteenth century when beds were made from wrought iron or brass and hand crafted to extremely high standards. As the designs became ever more elaborate and detailed with ornate finishes such as brass finials (or bedknobs to you and me) metal beds grew in popularity but at the start of the first world war, mass production took over and the craftsmen who often spent days working on a single bed could no longer compete with factories that could produce higher quantities at cheaper costs.

Traditionl curved frame iron beds in white

These traditional iron beds called Oliver are from Feather & Black and have a convincing  antique finish. You can get them in either bronze or white with side rails to match. They are  beautifully simple  children’s beds that will last many years and will have pride of place in your home.

Shops Selling Iron Beds…

Today only a handful of specialist shops sell hand-wrought metal beds, however there are also a few  bed sellers who specialise in restoring and selling antique iron beds.

Cheaply manufactured metal beds are made from low grade steel tubing which is easily damaged and the fixings tend to be flimsy.  Over time the constant movement causes metal fatigue in the frame and  any fixings become very loose or even break. A good quality iron bed will be made from solid sections or thicker gauge tubular steel and will last forever – often fetching good prices on the second-hand market.

Metal framed beds also look spectacularly stunning and are often the centrepiece of the room. They are not recommended for younger children however as they can easily become trapped in the gaps.

Children's metal bed with brass bedknobs

The Willow iron bed from  The Children’s Furniture Company has gone all Bedknobs and Broomsticks! A lovely traditional iron bed with beautiful ornate finishes that you’ll want to keep in the family so that generations of children can have magical adventures of their own in this fairytale iron bed.

Buying a Metal Bed…

If you are thinking of purchasing a metal bed you need to be aware that the price doesn’t usually include the cost of the mattress and it would be wise to check the measurements of the frame before you buy your mattress  to ensure that it is of a standard size, otherwise you’ll have to find a mattress to order which is an expensive process. As a guideline,  the  size of  a standard single mattress is 3ft x 6ft 3 inches or 90cm x 190cm

Children's pink metal bedstead

The Fran metal bedstead from John Lewis is available in pastel pink or classic white and is a cheaper but no less high quality metal children’s bed. A simple yet classical  look that is timeless in its design.

Modern design metal bed

The Milano Single Bed from OBC is a modern take on a traditional metal bed. The silver finish and contemporary design looks smart and classy and will fit in superbly with any room decor. Older children especially will appreciate the slight industrial undertones and unfussy structure.

Marks and Spencer metal single bed

The Pemberley Bedstead from Marks and Spencer  has a beautifully detailed and ornate  cast steel frame with hand cast mouldings in cream with polished brass bedknobs. The sprung beech slats will ensure excellent support no matter how much the bed is played on and slept in! It’s a bed fit for a princess.

Distressed iron bed

Talking of princesses, this bed could have come straight from one of the popular fairytales – perhaps Alice in Wonderland?  The iron bed is made in an  antique style from Pumkin Patch  and has been distressed for an original, rustic design that is bound to charm your child to sleep! You do have options to change the design from rabbits to lambs, rosettes, stars or airplanes to suit whatever your child is into!

Metal beds are a great investment as they are solid, sturdy and will still look great after many years of usage, after all how many wooden antique beds do you see around? They are also effortlessly stylish and graceful and can often bring the theme of a room together, providing a classical focal point, not to mention a talking point!

Work, Rest & Play

Space can be a real issue when it comes to children’s bedrooms. You can decorate children’s rooms  in a way that makes  them feel light, bright and roomy, but unfortunately the actual dimensions stay the same and the last thing you want to do is clutter a small room with lots of furniture. So some clever room solutions are called for …

Children’s bunk beds and cabin beds with desks underneath offer the perfect practical solution that combines bedding, work space and storage all in one giving children somewhere to work, rest and play!

Children's cabin bed with combined storage and study furniture

The Noah Cabin Bedstead from Feather & Black will make a smart addition to your child’s room. The bed has high sides for safety, plus a sturdy ladder; useful desk space under which the Noah chair fits perfectly; a movable cupboard; built in bookcase and a corkboard that your child can personalise. Simple and elegant – what more could you want?

Archie Cabin Bed with 3 Drawer Chest, Small Cupboard and Bookcase

Also from Feather & Black the Archie Cabin Bed is the perfect bed for children to grow up with.  A 3 Drawer Chest, Small Cupboard and Bookcase to fit underneath, so hopefully they’ll be encouraged to keep things in their right places!

Montana Cabin Bed

The Montana Cabin Bed from Amazon makes the most of the space underneath the bed to provide plenty of clever storage ideas. Made with honey-stained pine the single bed comes with a bookcase, a useful additional sliding bed and a sliding desk  and then tucked neatly away  when space is needed for sleepovers/dance parties/messy crafts etc.

Children's cabin bed with combined storage and pull-out desk

The Sleep Station Bedstead from Marks and Spencer in natural or painted white and once again the components can be pulled out and used separately and are easily slotted back in place when space is needed. It has an end bookcase, desk with cupboard and 3 drawer cupboard unit – enough for all their school work and more besides! The price is extremely reasonable for such a good quality bed and the dimensions make it small enough to fit into the tightest of spaces.

Mid-sleeper bed with pull-out desk and storage units

The Kat Teens Mid-Sleeper from Furniture 123 take space saving ideas to the extreme! They have ingeniously incorporated shelves into the side rail of the bed and even turned the steps into part of the bookcase! It also has a cupboard, another deep shelf and a pull-out desk on castors. It’s like an entire collection of bedroom furniture rolled into one space saving bed!

White painted sleep station

Tesco do a brilliant range of children’s cabin beds and furniture like this white painted Tesco  sleep station in a traditional style with simple, clean details such as the decorative bedside panels. There is a pull-out desk with shelves, a set of three drawers and a large cupboard and all for less than you would think!

Wooden cabin bed with desk

Ahoy there mi hearties! This Calypso space-saving cabin bed from Gautier  has a  nautical theme and just as  your  bunker on the pirate ship would be compact and  sturdy, so  this bed  shows an innovative use of space. We’ve seen steps  turned into bookshelves, now see how they can be turned into drawers! This Calypso bed  is full of cupboards with a handy desk and these beds also come with an option to sleep 2 or 3! See here for a list of UK stockists.

Kid's high sleeper bed with corner desk and staorage cupboard

The Julian Bowen high-sleeper with corner desk unit from The Kids Window is brilliant for older kids who also need a little extra space as their belongings expand and threaten to take over their rooms! This beautifully crafted high-sleeper not only comprises a corner desk but a low wardrobe too that neatly slots under the bed. Space saving solutions for older children need not be such a tall order!

White high sleeper with desk and bright red panels

The Farringdon high-sleeper with desk from Aspace has a fab modern, groovy look and feel. A tall bed is accessed by modern but wide steps that easy on feet whilst a small but perfectly formed desk fits in neatly underneath. The foot of the bed has a built-in wardrobe and two deep drawers with enough space for their entire wardrobe! Choose from riveting red, luscious lime, whiter than white  or woody oak to  suit most rooms and provide a contemporary twist to their bedrooms.

Space saving is far from boring as I think we’ve proved. There are plenty of choices on the market so no matter what shape of room you have to work with, there will be a children’s cabin bed that is more than suitable and which will provide a stylish focal point.
