Cabin beds are growing in popularity. They are fun to sleep in, they’re fashionable and with their additional space for storage they are the perfect solution for any desperate parent who is trying to bring order to their child’s bedroom.
Ask your child what they think
If you are at all unsure about your child’s reaction to a new cabin bed, then just go online with the child and show them the huge range of cabin beds that proliferate the internet.
There’s a greater chance that the child will love their new bed if they choose it themselves. If you discuss the matter with other parents, you’ll soon discover that most of your child’s friends will have childrens cabin beds so your child will be able to keep up with his/her friends when it comes to bedroom design.
Cabin beds are fun and functional
One of the main attractions of a cabin bed is that they look fun and enticing. Some of them are designed in the shape of cars or other childhood images while others come with additional fabric that can be attached to the bottom of the bed in order to form a playhouse.
These beds will create an imaginative place for your child to play and sleep. The storage space under the bed can also be fitted out with drawers and trunks that will help keep the room tidy and once your child gets older you can always update the underneath to give them something more grownup than a childhood den.
Make bed time less of a strain for the whole family
Most parents will be familiar with the tantrums that often accompany bedtime for younger family members. According to a recent article in The Independent, if these children have an exciting bed they are more likely to approach this tricky time of the day with joy and composure, rather than dreading entering their bedrooms.
As long as the child is over six years old, then cabin beds are an ideal invention.
Practical beds for smaller houses
Most of us live in small houses. These might consist of a beautifully designed contemporary home or be part of a traditional Victorian terrace. In most homes space is at a premium and the installation of a cabin bed in your child’s bedroom could free up space so that the room can be kept tidy.
Clutter can be stored under the bed in custom trunks and drawers or you can fill the space yourself with restored pieces of furniture from second hand shops. If you don’t have a spare room and your child wants to invite a friend to stay the night, then a cabin bed with an additional pull out bed is the perfect solution.
Cabin beds provide an ideal play space
Despite the increasing popularity of computer games and all other electronic gizmos, many children still prefer to play using their imagination. If they have a bed that can be converted to a tent by day then what better place to employ their imagination in perfect safety in their bedroom?
