Research shows that over a person’s lifetime, they’ll spend on average around 227,468 hours asleep. How a person sleeps can not only dictate their mood for the rest of the day, but it can also have more serious, long-term health effects. Sleep has been found to have a great effect on the long-term development of a child, which makes choosing the right bed all the more important.
Choices for Shared Rooms
Shared rooms between siblings are often a necessity for those with smaller homes, but many experts also feel that children who share a room at a young age will develop a much stronger bond during the rest of their lives. The classic bunk bed is a staple of many siblings’ bedrooms all around the world. What makes this such a popular choice is that there are a ton of options available to you, with a variety of different sizes and styles to suit all types of spaces. There’s something about sleeping up high that seems to get kids going, though, so expect a few arguments about who gets the top bunk.
A Little Extra Storage
As well as being stylish, furniture for a child’s bedroom should be sturdy and, if possible, provide plenty of storage options. Kids seem to have more toys nowadays than ever before, and getting all of this stuff organized and out of sight can be a real headache. You can try simply storing any old toys under the bed, but this can quickly become a problem when a child goes exploring and starts pulling everything out. Fortunately, there lots of bed frames come with built-in storage options to help alleviate this problem. Mid-level and high-level single sleeper beds are another useful way to make the most of the space available to you. Since the bed is placed up like a bunk bed, there’s enough room underneath for a desk or other useful utilities.
Creating a Unique Theme
Many parents like to create a theme for their child’s bedroom. Taking influence from their favorite movie or a fantasy setting is a great way to get your kids involved in the design of their own room, and even encourages their imagination during playtime. Since the bed is the central feature here, it’s no surprise that there’s an abundance of themed beds to fit different tastes. We’ve seen designs that recreate the carriage from Cinderella as a part of a princess motif, or even fully decked out, custom versions of the famous racing car bed. Whatever your child’s favorite is, there’s bound to be an option to suit them.
