Space-Saving Beds For Kids

We know that for many parents, having kids means accepting having toys spread all over the house. However, that doesn’t have to be the case! Space-saving beds are an easy way to make the best use of space in your child’s bedroom, meaning their toys and belongings can all be housed in one room, and you can reclaim your living area!

Selecting the right bed has a huge impact and there are many designs to choose from, so we’ve put together this handy guide to different types of space-saving beds to help you decide which is best for your child’s room. Whether you are renovating their bedroom or they are simply graduating from a cot or toddler bed, space-saving beds offer the ideal solution for making the most of a kid’s room.

Types of Space-saving Beds

Loft Beds

Loft beds are a great, fun solution for making the most of your child’s room. Their clever design elevates your child’s sleeping area, freeing up lots of space underneath for additional storage or living space.

For little ones, this could be used as quiet reading nook or play area, and when they grow up it transforms into a mature space to house a study desk.  But no matter what age your child is, the novelty of climbing up to bed after a long day never gets old.

Bunk Beds

If you’ve got more than one cheeky monkey to house, bunk beds are a great space-saving solution. Choosing a bunk bed rather than two single beds leaves much more floor space for storage and a play area.

Sharing a bunk bed also helps siblings to bond, and making better use of their shared living space reduces the likelihood of arguments! Even when squabbles do happen, it’s much harder to go to bed angry at each other.

Triple Bunk Beds

Blessed with triplets? Then our triple bunk beds are the solution you’ve been dreaming of. Free up space to store all their clothes and toys so they can play in a large open space, and you can see their floor again

Triple bunk beds also encourage children to value their own space whilst learning to share communal areas – a crucial lesson to learn when there are three kids running around!

Mid Sleepers

If you want to free up more space in your child’s room but don’t want to go for a loft bed, then our mid sleeper beds are the perfect compromise. Still slightly elevated, the raised bed offers space underneath for storing your child’s prized possessions whilst only requiring a short climb to get into bed.

Another advantage of the mid sleeper is its potential to make a fantastic den – something we’re sure will delight your child for years to come!

Cabin Beds

Cabin beds are a nice and neat type of bed that allow you to make the most of the space in your child’s room, whilst also acting as a feature piece. These beds are great for stimulating your child’s imagination too, and we offer a range of designs to suit every adventurer.

From cottages to carriages, and teepees to treehouses, there’s something to delight every child!

Storage Beds

It’s no secret that kids aren’t the tidiest creatures in the world. That’s why we offer a huge collection of storage beds, designed to include all manner of nooks, crannies, shelves, and drawers to help your little ones stay as clutter free as possible.

Storage beds help to form good habits early, teaching children the value of tidiness from a young age. And when your child gets older the bed matures with them, the contemporary design transforming easily into a cool hangout space for teens.

L Shaped Beds

Some of our more contemporary designs come in the form of L shaped beds, which are designed to fit nicely into corners. A new take on the traditional bunk bed, an L shaped bed offers both children their own space whilst slotting neatly into a small space. The innovative design means minimal space is used without anyone feeling cramped.

Beds with Desks

Who says you need a sibling to sleep on the top bunk? Our beds with desks are some of our most popular space-saving beds, allowing you to slot a study area conveniently below your child’s sleeping space. This frees up a huge amount of space in their bedroom, giving them lots of room to move around and avoiding a potentially cramped living space.

These beds are a great choice for children who need a place to do their homework in peace and quiet, or the desk can easily double as a dresser for getting ready in the morning. The compact design encourages tidiness, building good habits for the rest of the bedroom (and house!).

Trundle beds

Also known as truckle beds or sleepover beds, trundle beds are effectively a regular single bed but with an extra bed stored underneath it. The extra bed rolls out easily when required, and tucks away neatly when not in use.

These beds are a great choice for your little one all year round, and are perfect for hosting friends and family that come to stay. In most cases the extra bed can also be raised in line with the height of the main bed to form a double bed if needed, so there’s no need to relegate your guests to a sofa. If you’re looking for versatility, then trundle beds are a strong choice.
