Delightful children’s room design starts with great kids’ beds and PoshTots has a sleeping spot for every little dreamer’s style. When your little one is ready to say goodbye crib, but isn’t quite ready for a big kid bed, say hello to a toddler bed. Toddler beds are ideal for the little one who is climbing out of their crib or who has reached 36″ tall. There are several things that make toddler beds great – you can continue to use your crib mattress in your toddler bed. Also, many toddler beds are available with optional safety rails to prevent falling.
Once they are ready to transition from a toddler bed, consider your little one’s biggest needs. Will their kid bed be a twin bed, daybed, bunk bed or – for sleepovers with friends – a full bed or queen bed with a trundle? A kid’s bed takes center stage in their room so when it comes to style, the sky’s the limit. Dazzle them with a hand-painted bed featuring themed motifs, a fanciful canopy bed, or an oversized traditional sleigh bed. Iron beds and poster beds are ideal for little girls, while colorful cottage styles are well suited to boys’ rooms.
Darling daybeds make double-duty of dozing. Equally comfortable as beds and sofas, daybeds are great in nurseries, children’s rooms, guest rooms and playrooms. Beautiful, comfortable, and always prepared for special guests, daybeds and trundle daybeds add space-saving grace to any room. Parents of infants, babies and small children will love having extra sleeping space tucked into their child’s nursery or bedroom. A daybed is the perfect first “big kid” bed. Daybeds are also designed to have high backs so little ones are protected on one side. When it’s time for sleepovers or to play hostess to house guests, most daybeds feature optional trundle beds. A trundle pulls out easily from beneath the daybed. There are drawer-style trundles that remain on the floor as well as iron pop-up varieties. Either trundle option immediately makes a daybed a sleeping spot made for two.
When one bed or a trundle unit isn’t enough, bunk beds are the perfect fit for your child’s room. Whether it’s a twin-over-twin bunk bed or a twin-over-full bunk bed, if you have twins, non-multiples siblings or a child who has lots of sleepovers, a space-saving, sleep-savvy bunk bed might be the best solution for your child’s space. When your little ones graduate into their own space and don’t require a room that plays double duty, many bunks can be used as two twins or a loft bed with space beneath for seating or a desk.
When it comes to decorating your little one’s space, dressers and nightstands can be coordinated to match beds perfectly, or styles can be mixed for an eclectic look older children love. A child’s bedroom should grow and change alongside them, so seek kids’ furniture styles that suit your little one’s big personality. With all the books, toys and treasures that also require a resting spot, a dresser, armoire or nightstand makes a welcome addition to your child’s furniture. For added style and storage, consider adding other children’s furniture finds like a bookcase, desk or toy box.
If you keep the design simple and not too trendy, a child’s room should age with the child. Accent the space with unique lighting and art. If your child insists on something “Hannah Montana” make it a pillow or throw that can easily be replaced with their changing tastes. An accent wall is a great way for your child to express their love of color. (And it can always be changed when they realize they no longer like the color lime!)
Lastly, no matter what the space or style, purchasing pieces that grow with your child is always a great idea. Let your little one sleep safe and sound from crib to college with a convertible crib. Well-constructed convertible cribs offer outstanding style and safety with a solid foundation for your child’s nursery, and later, their bedroom. Cribs for infants, toddler beds, and full size beds for kids and teens are all included when you buy a crib that converts to a bed. All components necessary to accommodate your child’s changing needs as she grows are included. First for a toddler bed, the safety rail, then the side rails for full size bed conversion. The options are endless when it comes to moving on up from a baby room to a big kid room but, thankfully, there are pieces that transition seamlessly with style.
