Kids Beds Inspired by Travel

All of the kid’s beds in this guide are designed to spark your children’s sense of wonder for travelling the world.

Some are created to look like epic treehouses that’ll inspire expeditions within the comfort of their bedroom. Whereas others resemble exciting modes of transport that can also fuel epic ‘adventures’ with their friends or siblings – after all, life is about the journey.

With such attention to detail evident in every design, these premium kid’s beds are sure to amaze younger members of your family. Whilst you may wish they were available in adult bed sizes too. Oh to be young again.

Dive in and explore this guide and be ready to see beaming smiles upon delivery. Many of the designs are available with an installation service too (fees apply) – perfect for parents who are less confident with their DIY skills.

1. Realistic Features

Mathy by Bols Kids Caravan Bed available in 26 Colours

Give your littleuns an exciting bed that’s sure to encourage ‘day trips’ within their own room. Where will they travel to in this characterful caravan shaped bed?

We love the wheel detail, personalised number plate, door and tow connector – and your kid may think this is a real caravan given this attention to detail.

Mathy by Bols offers this pine and MDF bed in 26 colourways to suit their existing room theme. This saves the added expense and disruption of redecorating.

Aware of the need for storage, you’ll find two internal shelves and a box where they can keep their treasured books – and atlas! The Basalt Grey pull-out drawer even gives you room for an 80×140 cm mattress (not included).

2. To Tent or Not to Tent?

Vox Spot Kids Tipi Bed & Frame with Trundle Drawer in White

A ‘chill out’ space fit for any child, this beautiful solid pine and laminated wood tipi frame bed is perfect for decorating with cotton ball string lights, small wall hangings and even necklaces (as shown here).

Transporting them to the plains of North America, you can convert this bed into a cosy hideaway by adding the Vox Spot Kids Tipi Tent Cover in Grey (sold separately). Every night will feel like camping under the stars – thankfully without the British weather!

A three-in-one piece of furniture, it can be used as a den, playhouse or bed. Their room will become ‘Adventure HQ’, which they’ll adore sharing with siblings and friends. Speaking of which, the included trundle drawer can be upgraded to a trundle pull-out bed (at an additional cost) – perfect for when they embark on epic sleepovers.

3. Handcrafted and Original Design

Mathy by Bols Wagon Bunk Bed with Drawers

Not only does this unique bed design resemble a wagon – ideal for ‘travelling the world’ from their bedroom – it’s handcrafted by Mathy by Bols in Belgium.

Using vertical space, this compact bunk bed has loads of incredible features that’ll make the space work for your youngsters. Tucked inside the lower bed compartment are a large box and a duo of shelves where they can gather their prized possessions.

The inviting ladder can be fixed to the left or right of this multipurpose bed, suiting different bedroom layouts. Other practical features include two drawers on wheels and the option to add a shelf and desk (sold separately). Imagine the letters they’ll ‘write home’ from this desk.

4. Ready, Set, Go!

Lifetime Road Race Kids Mid Sleeper

Departing Belgium for Denmark now, this cute bed and den combo from Lifetime is ideal for boys or girls who love all things cars.

Get ready for safety-first materials, robust joints and non-toxic paints, so you can rest easy knowing they’ll sleep sound in this whimsical bed. Crafted by hand from Scandinavian Pine that comes from sustainable sources, there’s also a handrail to help your nipper scale its ladder safely.

Make a den area below the bed – perfect for ‘pitstops’ on busy days. Throwdown some bean bags, scatter some cushions and add a personalised nameplate (sold separately) to create a ‘wheely good’ bedroom space.

5. Who Wouldn’t Want a Slide in their Bedroom?

Mathy by Bols Treehouse Bunk Bed with Slide & Platform

Kids are sure to have their best adventures sleeping and playing in this fab-u-lous treehouse-style bed. It even features a slide for days when it’s cold outside and friends come round to play.

They can feel a real sense of wonder and achievement once they reach the top platform via the ladder. While you can breathe easy knowing it’s made from quality pine and MDF. Select one of 26 shades such as Summer Pink, Apple Green and Powder Blue.

They’ll be looking forward to snoozing (hopefully!) after a long day’s play in this treetop fort. Plus, what’s cooler than sliding down their own treehouse every morning?

6. Surf and Sleep

Julian Bowen Campervan Bunk Bed

This incredible bunk bed will provide siblings or friends (over 6 years old) with an ideal setting for adventures during daytimes ‘by the sea’. Then, at night, what’s cooler than drifting off to sleep in a double-decker campervan style bed? Not much we imagine!

The fresh white and green MDF frame is sure to excite ‘water babies’ given the attention to detail in this ‘rad’ design. From the ‘Surf and Sleep’ sign to the curved ladder that mimics a surfboard, this bed will transport them to the beach – wherever you live.

Mini ‘motorists’ will enjoy driving’ their campervan bunk bed using the movable steering wheel, before retiring to their choice of two beds – simply add mattresses (not included).

7. Create VIP Adventures

Charlotte Kids Treehouse Bed in Grey & Beige

At Cuckooland, our UK based design team endeavours to put their creative spin on kid’s furniture. Part solid pine, part MDF, your little monkey will feel snuggly in their ‘woodland hideout’ whilst retaining the comforts of home.

With a deluxe slatted base included, simply add a bamboo mattress protector and bedding alongside a cloud duvet from Panda London (not included) for true VIP glamping. We also sell roll-up Charlotte fabric curtains so your budding adventurer can feel enclosed camping out among the ‘trees’.

The only limit is their imagination and we love the refined colour palette of grey and beige.
