Bunk Beds for Kids

Bunkbeds have always been a traditional favorite with kids, but did you know they come in more contemporary styles and themes as well?  Full size bunk beds come as either full over full bunk beds, twin over full bunk beds, or a futon sofa bed with a twin or full top bunk.  All can be purchased in wood, metal, or iron, depending on preference.

Kids Trundle Beds

Trundle beds are those nifty little space saving items in which two bedframes are built so that the second can be stored under the upper and is made to slide out for use.  There is also another type of trundle bed that has under bed drawers, and another kind called a pop up trundle bed where the second bedframe not only slides out but pops into place level to the upper frame to make one large bed.  Kids love these as they provide additional space for sleepovers.  They can also be used when space is tight and parents are concerned with the size of the childrens bedroom furniture used.  Either way, trundle beds can be a real hit with any age child and a parent.

Kids Loft Beds

A loft bed is different than a bunk in that loft beds generally have two separate units with each area having its own separate identity.  Sometimes a higher bed is made to fit over a second lower bed, sometimes going two different directions to create an “L” shape, or you can also find a loft bed with desk.  While you might be thinking these would be more for older children, teen bedrooms, and college dorm rooms, you can also find a toddler loft bed with a play area underneath or big slides, ropes, or ladders to play on.  Usually toddler loft beds are lower to the ground than other loft bed frames.  Toddler beds are built lower to the ground to begin with, and that is the case here as well.

Loft beds are always cool!

Kids Beds With Storage

Kids may not put all their “junk” away all the time, but it doesn’t hurt to have the extra room just in case!  Many pieces of kids bedroom furniture incorporate bedroom design ideas that incorporate sleeping with bedroom storage.  Trundle beds with under bed storage are one way to get that extra bit of room for books, blankets, or even toys.  Bunks with under bed storage drawers and loft beds provide bedroom organization as well.  Another bed that provides storage is the platform bed.  Platform beds are modern looking beds which have a raised, flat base that supports a mattress without a box spring.  This type of frame can accommodate under the bed drawers, either on one side for a twin or both sides for a full, or the platform is built to lift straight up with storage underneath.  With so many kids beds with storage, there is plenty to choose from that will meet the needs of the parent as well as those of the child.

Kids can never have enough storage space.  That’s why these Kids Beds With Storage offer so much to kids (and their parents).   (Amazon Affiliate Link)

Unique Kids Beds

Kids theme beds are tops for displaying individuality and providing an enjoyable atmosphere for younger children and toddlers.  The can also stimulate creativity and play.  Themed toddler beds can look like fire trucks, Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage, and racecars.  Themed loft beds for children can look like castles, tree houses, and pirate ships. Even high school boys and girls can enjoy Adirondack furniture or log furniture with country home décor or southwestern home décor.

IKEA Kids Beds

While IKEA has many of the beds already mentioned, shopping at IKEA is, in and of itself, a great family experience, and finding bedroom furniture that fits your child is easy to do.

What makes Ikea even better is the bedroom decorating ideas you get when you visit one of their stores.  Their inexpensive and fun bedroom accessories compliment any bedroom, and their showroom highlights the great variety of looks you can get with an IKEA kids bed and some of their inexpensive and fun kids room decorating ideas.  Combining a large selection of kids beds furniture with other budget minded choices, any parent and child can put together a bedroom package that satisfies every kids dreams and wishes.
