Top Teen Beds of 2020

If you’re in the throws of parenting tweens and teens, chances are that your bank account is taking a hard k knock… coffee dates with friends, trips into town with friends, dinner out with friends (notice the common theme here!) and then there’s the growth spurts that are paired with the need for bigger shoes, clothes, bikes… and you might just find that their first big bed (that they looked so tiny in only a nano second ago!) just isn’t Gucci enough for your fashion-conscious teen.

Whether they have simply outgrown their current bed or they have developed a strong sense of what they do and don’t like (trust me, it doesn’t stop at kid’s bedroom furniture!), searching for an affordable teen bed is made easy at Cuckooland. Style has not been sacrificed thanks to the forward thinking designers behind many of our popular teen bed brands, such as Vox, Woood, Lifetime and Oliver Furniture, who have all considered the changing needs of a modern teen and incorporated stylish design features into many of their teen beds.

Our range of teen beds boasts timeless single beds to more spacious double beds, smart storage cabin beds to space saving loft beds, modern four poster beds to studious beds with a desk, you’re guaranteed to find a bed that your teen will love (we’ll accept a grunt as approval or even an OMG!).

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 Ava High Sleeper Bed 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. With shelves upon shelves – their textbooks are just an arm’s length away too!

Or check out this super versatile convertible bed (if they’re a fan of Transformers, they’ll love this!), desk by day, bed by night, the Denver 2 in 1 Desk & Day Bed is a fusion of a practical desk and a comfy bed.

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 Dennis Day Bed by Woood would suit any teen bedroom and by adding the trundle option they’ve got an instant guest bed 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 Harper High Sleeper with Desk and Storage. 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 Louis Mid Sleeper Cabin Bed as it not only offers valuable storage it offers a pull-out desk, ideal for those studious 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!

The industrial feel of the Small Double Black Metal Four Poster Bed by Woood will look uber cool in your teens bedroom. Adorn with festoon lights and they’ve got a seriously stylish four poster bed to sprawl in!

Part of a collection of modular bedroom furniture, the Vox Stige Single Bed with Trundle 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 Vox Stige collection for a coordinated look.

For teens who love their gaming, the Urban Grey PC Gaming High Sleeper 5 is sure to earn you a twitch of a smile! Nestled beneath the loft bed is a large gaming desk and boasts a list of gadgets including some snazzy led strip lights.

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.

The Vox Evolve Day Bed is the perfect combination of understated style and practicality, your teens will be itching to invite their mates over to chat the night away!

Another brilliant teen sleepover bed is a high sleeper bed that includes a sofa bed underneath, such as the Urban range from Kids Avenue, 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 Oliver Furniture Wood Small Double Lounger Bed 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.

For a more urban feel, the New York Metal Small Double Bed is an ideal small double bed for a teen. Available in a choice of 6 colours there’s sure to be one that will suit your teens favourite colour palette.

The generously sized Black Metal Small Double Four Poster Bed by Woood offers up a small double for your teen to grow into! Finished in a bold matte black powder coated finish, twist festoon lights or bunting around the metal frame for the ultimate WOW factor!
