I think that I have been pretty sensible with choosing the right bed for Grace over the years. When we lived at my Mum’s, Grace was initially in a standard cot with wooden ends. The trouble was she used to rock herself to sleep (and still does on occasion), thus making an awful racket! We then changed her over into a travel cot (no wooden sides you see) and we were all able to get a much more peaceful nights sleep.
When she was 18 months old, I carefully selected a toddler bed with raised sides which I ordered from Kiddicare. I was a little concerned she might think that this was an open invitation to keep getting out of bed but thankfully this didn’t happen!
She grew out of her toddler bed once we moved into my flat and my very kind next-door neighbour had a spare single bed which she gave to us. I was so grateful to her.
I often wonder what I would have done had I had the money to buy her my choice of bed. One that would suit her. So when Carpetright informed me that they had a range of children’s beds I decided to take a look for myself.
First on my list would have been the fantastic Lola Studio Bunk Children’s Bed. Sold as a space-saving option (and who doesn’t see this as a positive?!) the bed comes equipped with a modern glass effect work station, super-cosy sofa bed and supportive single bunk on top. The person who designed this bed certainly thought of everything including accommodating friends during sleepovers. I think this has to be my absolute favourite – I certainly would have loved this when I was little!
Second would be the Juliette Frame bed. It is a really simple design at first glance but, upon a second look, you will find a second bed tucked away underneath the single bed frame that quickly pops up to create a double bed in no time. Another great space-saving option to cater for guests. There is also a choice of colours, sturdy sprung slatted base, comfortable headboard…the list goes on.
Finally I really love the look of the Ted Children’s Bed. It is great for sleepovers or sibling sharing with a single bed on top and a small double bed on the bottom. It has a sturdy metal frame and is finished in silver with comfortable wooden steps.
So, there you have it. Which bed would you choose for your little one if money was no object?
