Lifetime’s Eco Credentials
One of the best things about Lifetime is how environmentally conscious they are in every aspect of their sourcing and production.
All of Lifetime’s wood comes from FSC-certified forests in Northern Europe and is grown without artificial agents. Instead, they give the wood the time it needs to mature, allowing it to become naturally hard and strong. The wood then undergoes a series of quality tests before being used to create children’s furniture at their Danish factory in south-west Jutland.
To paint and seal their furniture, Lifetime use only eco-friendly, water-based lacquer, tested according to the European Standard EN 73. This non-toxic paint is super safe for children and helps to contribute to a healthy working environment in their factory.
Speaking of which, their factory also has some impressive eco-friendly qualities. All the electricity they use comes from green energy generated by wind turbines. Any leftover wood from production is also used to heat the factory. Waste not, want not!
Our Favourite Lifetime Beds
1. Lifetime Kids Beach House Double Bed
The Kids Beach House Double Bed is a stylish house bed and one of our all-time favourite Lifetime beds.
In addition to being made from super-strong, sustainable Scandinavian pine wood, the fact that the bed is a double size offers you even more longevity. When they’re little, you’ll have space to crawl in next to them and snuggle up for a bedtime story.
Meanwhile, when they grow into a lanky teen, they’ll have space to stretch out, and you won’t need to replace their bed. Don’t worry – the roof and rails can be removed to save your teenager any embarrassment!
2. Lifetime Adventure Hangout Kids Bed
The incredible Lifetime Adventure Hangout Bed is still one of the most fun beds we’ve come across in our many years of sourcing kid’s beds from around the world.
It consists of a bed on the bottom with a ladder up to the enclosed top bunk, which comes complete with opening windows and is the perfect den or base for roleplaying games.
There are various ladder configurations, so you can choose the one that suits you best and make it into a bunk bed if you wish – for double the fun!
3. Lifetime All in One Semi High Storage Bed
For smaller bedrooms or those in desperate need of storage, we’re all about Lifetime’s All in One Semi High Storage Bed.
Within this compact cabin bed is a double and single cupboard with hanging rail and a chest of drawers. There’s also hidden storage in the steps and cubby holes in the side of the staircase. So. Much. Storage.
The bed is available in a White or Whitewash finish that highlights the natural knots and features of the wood. Choose from a wide range of handles, including leather, felt and metal options, to make the bed your own.
4. Lifetime Ocean Life Beach House Bed
If you love to read your little one bedtime stories, we recommend the Lifetime Ocean Life Beach House Bed.
That’s because it has a unique L-shape with a built-in bench next to the bed that’s perfect for mum or dad to sit comfortably whilst reading their favourite books.
The bed has a fixed roof and a quilted canopy fits over the bench – complete with hanging seagull, for the full seaside experience!
5. Lifetime Climb & Slide Kids Bed
If your little one wants to have more fun in their room (and what kid doesn’t?) the Climb & Slide Bed will certainly provide!
This high-quality Lifetime kid’s bed features a rope ladder to climb into bed and a slide to zoom out in the morning.
On the more practical side, there are storage boxes on castors underneath and a blackboard on the side for all your little one’s scribbles (um, we mean masterpieces…)
6. Lifetime Canoe Adventure 4-in-1 Combination Bed
For a bed that will truly last a Lifetime, the Canoe Adventure 4-in-1 Combination Bed is hard to beat.
This incredible kid’s bed has four possible configurations: a floor-level house bed, a regular house bed, a loft bed and a simple single bed. All these options will easily take your child from their toddler to teenage years, and even into adulthood.
Lifetime offer this bed in several styles, but the Canoe has to be one of our favourites – the leaf, compass and squirrel decals will make your little one feel ready for any adventure!
7. Lifetime Play Tower Luxury Kids Bed
Lifetime beds certainly have no shortage of fun features and the Play Tower Luxury Kid’s Bed is one of their most action-packed designs.
The bed has an incredible look-out tower accessed by a rope ladder. There’s a floor cushion to make the tower cosy and a blackboard to help them hatch that day’s plans.
Of course, there’s also a bed – but who cares about that when there’s this much fun to be had?
8. Lifetime Luxury Lake House 2 Children’s Bed
What child wouldn’t love coming ‘home’ to this bed every night?
The Luxury Lake House 2 Children’s Bed is a stunning house bed complete with dormer windows in the roof, door, windows, and window sill boxes – perfect for holding faux plants or favourite toys.
Add an under-bed drawer for extra storage or the optional trundle to enable your little one to host sleepover guests at their lake house. Weekend in The Hamptons, anyone?
9. Lifetime Luxury Honey Glow Four Poster Bed
Add a touch of luxe to your child’s bedroom with the Luxury Honey Glow Four Poster Bed.
This whimsical Lifetime bed features a four-poster design with a golden canopy and net curtains that will make your child feel like royalty or as if they’re sleeping in a fairy tale.
