Choosing a Children’s Bed

Sleep is in an important part of life. Every living creature on the planet needs some sleep. As adults, we spend, on average, about a third of our lives in bed. With statistics like that, it’s important that the bed we choose for our children needs to set them up correctly for all that time spent under the covers. Of course, the amount of sleep our children need varies from person to person. At one week, old it’s not unusual for them to sleep 8 hours during the day, and the same at night. As they grow, daytime sleeping starts to reduce but sleeping during the night (hopefully) increases. Between the ages of 5 and 11, experts generally agree that children need between 10 – 12 hours of sleep per night. Many parents will tell you that they can only dream of nights like that. Still, with such an array of beds available for kids, what should you be looking for to make the night as restful and peaceful as possible? Let’s take a look.

It wasn’t that long ago when children’s beds were simply smaller versions of the beds we have as an adult. Whilst those still exist, and we have some brilliant ones in stock, these days the sheer range of beds available to our little cherubs is immense. Whether they’re a boy or a girl, academically inclined or just enjoy making bedtime an extension of playtime. You’d be amazed at the choices available to suit every budget.

For boys, we have a range of beds that they will love, no matter what sparks their imagination. From racing cars, fire engines, tractors to pirate ships.  They offer children a comfortable place to lay their heads, but also a fantastic opportunity to engage their endless creativity during the day. They can turn their bed into a ship sailing the seven seas, or for racing their favourite characters on a high-speed racetrack. Making these beds are a quality piece of furniture and an exquisitely crafted piece of play. What’s better than that!

For your little princesses, we can offer them an equal amount of fun. The range of beds for girls is outstanding. Of course, we offer the basic bed frames for those wanting some elegance, but there is much more on offer than that. We have princess carriages to please even the most royal little girls. Our horse-drawn carriages may lack the horsepower, but they more than make up for that with a style and charm all their own. If your little girl is a little tom-boy, then rest assured we have them covered. We have a great range of racing car beds designed specifically for girls. Plus, there’s nothing to stop you buying any of the beds we have regardless of gender. We’re proud to be an equal-opportunity sleep supplier!

Don’t forget, if you have more than one child needing a new bed, then we can help with that too. We have a great range of bunk beds to keep them happy and that includes triple-sleepers which have a double bed at the bottom and a single at the top. The only argument you might have is who sleeps upstairs and who sleeps downstairs on the bottom bunk. Let’s face it, if that’s the worst problem you have, you’re doing alright.

Whatever you’re looking for, will have something to suit. We monitor our prices to keep them competitive so you can rest assured you’ll always be getting a great deal from us. Sleep well!
