Choosing the right bed for your kids room

Kids Bedroom furniture wooden day bed grey room Just recently I’ve talked about finding the right furniture for a child’s bedroom. From experience, before you know it, they’ve outgrown what you thought might see them through so it’s made me realise how essential it is to think ahead in to their near teenage years. I mean, I love a bit of DIY and altering colours but changing all the furniture can be costly and unnecessary.

A mistake that we have made and have ended up getting through several up to this point hence me really wanting to invest in their long term beds now and buy something that’ll hold it’s value as much as possible.

So, we went for the Nikki Day Bed from Cuckooland for both the girls’ rooms that allows friends to stay over with it’s trundle drawer underneath that you can pop an extra mattress in so it creates a really sociable aspect to the room as it can be used in the day as a sofa with lots of cushions and then a cosy bed at night. It also ensures lots of space as it doesn’t dominate the centre of the room. It’s wooden which was what we wanted. It’s well painted and sturdy. Pure white in colour was important so that we could make small changes over time  – white works with everything doesn’t it ? I do like it with this light grey wall.

It’s a room to hang out in. How long will we keep it tidy for ? :)

You can also have some fun with the wall behind and coordinate some cushions ( these ones were made by Mae and the fabric is from Scion Fabrics at Style Library ) to make a really cosy little hub.

This was all perfect for our needs but I appreciate that every bedroom is different in one way or another so have chosen 5 more beds here from Cuckooland that will suit various sized and shaped spaces and of course different price points. I love with the four poster, the idea of fairy lights but you could also drape sheer fabric around it.It’s a single but comes as a double also. Classic metal beds look so good in most rooms with white cotton bedding or a bight and fun duvet cover.

With limited space like in Mae’s old room a high bed like the Lifetime one here is great as you can fit everything needed for studying during those longer high school nights.

I think all of these beds can be passed on to other family members afterwards and that’s what appeals to me.

It took us a lot longer than planned ( and two skips later but that’s another story … ) to organise their new rooms but they are really happy with the new sleeping arrangements and we have already had the thumbs up from visiting friends.

I wish I’d had a trundle bed when I was school age – but did they even exist then or did we miss a trick ?

What are your thoughts on the new look ?

I received a discount when purchasing the beds. No payment other than that. As always – all opinions are my own.

Oh what a gorgeous space! I love the bed, it looks really well made and I have to say, that Aurora bed in your round up looks just as good for adults! What a beautiful practical piece! xx

What a beautiful room! Kids bedrooms are so gorgeous these days. They’re really spoiled for choice which is fantastic to see. I love a good day bed too as they’re so fun to dress up and are always a good excuse for buying cute teddies and cushions for display x

It’s so easy to end up buying the same pieces of furniture over and over as kids grow. It makes much more sense to choose wisely once so the bed can grow with them. I don’t remember trundle beds being a thing when I was little either. But I’d have loved a room like this. That Aurora bed you picked out is also lovely. Cuckooland have some really lovely options.

Lovely room ! I miss gorgeous white and pastel colours. Sadly, my twin 13 year old boys only want black, black and more black these days !
