These days a kid’s bedroom is more than just a place to sleep, it’s a mini family room where he takes his friends to play when they come over. A kid might have a computer, a small stereo, a ton of toys to play with, that’s where his buddies and him go when they want to make a ruckus. This is the biggest reason that parents should consider buying their kids, a kid’s bed. A nicely decorated kid’s bed that either looks like a car, a ship, or castle can widen the imagination and occupy children for hours on end while the parents chitchat in the other room, worth way more than any bed could ever cost. And after all, one of the coolest things you can brag about when you grow up is how great your bedroom was when you are kid. Now, let’s take a look at some of the lengths and sizes that kids beds come in and a few other details as well.
Kids beds can come in a variety of different specific links and sizes. There are some that are for really small kids, while others for the medium-size, and then for a budding teenager it would be best to get a twin or a full-size bed to accommodate their full-size. Basically when you go to the store and look at the various sizes you should have your child stretch out on one of the beds, then add plenty of room in anticipation of their growth. Some beds can be adjusted by changing the rails or adjusting the head and foot boards of the bed. You need to take into consideration how much you think your kid will grow and add plenty.
Another important option that you need to take a serious look at, is putting extra storage underneath your kid’s bed. It isn’t possible today for children growing up to have enough space for all their stuff. Putting ample storage beneath your kids beds is an excellent place to keep things out of the way, yet easily accessible. And you should strongly consider a captains style pedestal underneath your bed which makes room for an additional row of drawers as well. And then, there are even beds that are raised the full bunk bed distance above the floor to accommodate a small desk and some dresser drawers.
If you have extra space in your children’s rooms a good idea is to buy a piece of furniture called a futon. A futon is similar to a low couch with a large comfortable overstuffed pillow that can then be unfolded down into an extra bed. Then, when your kids have friends over, it’s easy enough to merely fold-down the futon and have plenty of extra sleeping room.
One of the things that I’d like to stress in this short article is how important it is for your child have good memories of playing in his room and being proud of his stuff and furnishings. Sometimes a kid’s status in the neighborhood is based on how much fun it is to go play at his house. And, since the bedroom is a place for kids spend a good portion lives is cool to have excellent memories to look back on.
