Space is very important in any home but unfortunately, not all families live in large houses where a kid can have extensive floor space in their bedroom. In fact, most households today are always in dire need of extra space in a child’s room, particularly for storing clothes, toys and other belongings.
As the biggest piece of furniture in the room, the bed often takes up a huge chunk of the space, leaving very little for moving around and even for the rest of the furniture. But with space saving beds for children, you can easily circumvent the space problem while also dramatically improving the appearance of the room. Here, we have some great ideas that you can try if you want to maximize the space in your child’s room.
If you have two kids older than six years old that are sharing a room, a bunk bed will solve many of your space issues. Switching from two individual beds to a single bunk bed will free up considerable floor space in the room. You do need to choose the right bunk bed that best fits your family’s needs.
One of the most popular products in the KFS inventory is the Discovery World Furniture twin over twin bunk bed. It not only accommodates two kids, but it also features several wide and deep drawers along the bottom and also on the foot of the beds by the stairs. We also have a selection of twin over full as well as full over full bunk bed configurations that can accommodate up to four occupants.
Loft beds are another magnificent type of space saving beds for children. What they do is elevate the sleeping area, creating an empty space underneath the loft, which can be used for a variety of purposes. Our low loft beds can be fitted with cabinets or shelves for storage, which are also available at the store as an optional add-on purchase. We also have higher loft beds that can accommodate a desk underneath, letting you create a study or work area for your child.
However, the most popular use of the empty space under the bed is for conversion into a cozy play area for the bed’s occupant. You can make an enclosure using curtains and then decorate the space inside according to a theme preferred by your child. It could become a military fort, a princess’s castle, or a tearoom where they can host parties for their dolls stuffed animals. The options are endless! This makes it the ideal bed for a kid who does not have their own playroom, because it will instantly give them one.
If you are not keen on your child sleeping at a high elevation, you might consider a captain day bed. Available in twin and full sizes, captain beds give you a considerable amount of storage underneath the main bed in the form of various drawer configurations. The drawers are deep and wide, and are also equipped with safety features that eliminate the risk of them sliding out completely and hurting a child’s toes.
There are many excellent options out there when it comes to space saving beds for children. However, one of the primary criteria that you should always consider is the safety of the bed’s design and structure. Pay close attention to the type of connectors used and look for safety features like rounded corners. Your best bet is to choose only a bed that is made of high quality materials that meet the ASTM standards, while also featuring an elegant design that will make the most of the space in your child’s room.
