To make your search for the ultimate teen bed a little easier, I have pulled together a selection of top teen beds that will help you create the perfect bedroom for your style savvy teenager, if you get it right they may even break out into a full blown smile and a “thank you!”
Best Bed for Studious Teens
If you’re blessed with a teen who loves to get their head in a book and study, a bed with a desk makes the perfect partner for your studious teen. Providing space to study in peace, away from the hum-drum of family life, not only supports their studies, it offers independence and privacy.
The large desk offered up by the provides ample space for getting creative with sharpies, writing that on-topic essay or making up endless revision cards and its space saving design makes it suitable for even the smallest of bedrooms.
Multi-functional Teen Bed
Whether you like or not, your teenager is likely to spend more and more time in their bedroom as they get older. Sleeping, chatting to friends, listening to music or catching up on the latest Netflix release, teens seem to love their own space more than a communal family space.
Daybeds are a brilliant blend of bed and sofa, offering up a place to sleep and chill out. The simplicity of the would suit any teen bedroom and by adding the trundle option they’ve got an instant for when their bestie stops over.
Best Storage Bed for Teens
Providing plenty of storage is a step in the right direction to encourage your teen to keep a tidy bedroom… you can but try! Whether they have a small, medium or large bedroom, storage beds are a brilliant space saving bed, combining all manner of storage into one neat piece of furniture.
If you opt for a high sleeper storage bed many designs come complete with a built in wardrobe, as seen here with the Trasman Tarragona High Sleeper Bed with Wardrobe. This cool teen bed incorporates a desk, shelving and a wardrobe into one space saving bed.
Mid sleeper beds with storage, as known as cabin beds, are another brilliant teen storage bed. Their lower profile frame means that they’ll forgo the wardrobe, but gain valuable under bed storage such as drawers, cupboards and shelving. A particular favourite of mine is the Lifetime Small Double Cabin Bed as it not only offers valuable storage it offers a larger bed, ideal for those sprouting teens!
Most Stylish Teen Bed
We can’t escape our digital world and our teens are the forerunners; for the seriously stylish teen, these beds won’t disappoint, they may even make it onto their grid!
Part of a collection of modular bedroom furniture, the is best when combined with the optional ladder frame, perfect for hanging fairy lights, bags, storage boxes or pictures. Your teen will love personalising their bed and making it their own. Combine with other modular elements from the collection for a coordinated look.
Best Teen Bed for Sleepovers
We’ve already established that teens seem to prefer hanging out with their chums over their fam, so if your teen is a fan of having their besties over for a sleepover, having a bed with a guest bed option is a great idea. Trundle beds offer up a handy under bed guest bed that can be easily set up when needed and store away neatly when they’re not.
Another brilliant teen sleepover bed is a high sleeper bed that includes a sofa bed underneath, such as the Urban range from , that is available in a variety of combinations, all featuring a sofa / guest bed.
Best Bed for Growing Teens
Depending on the age of your teen, you may need to allow for a few more years of growing! So if their single bed is a little on the snug side, you could consider a small double or a double bed. Some of the beds I’ve already highlighted are sized as a small double, here are a few more to consider;
With its minimalist Scandi design, the sizes up larger than a single bed, allowing plenty of room for growing. Made from FSC Birchwood you’ll not only be considering your child’s needs, you’re caring for the environment too.
