Considerations When Choosing Your Children's Bed

Apr 18, 2008
Choosing your children's bed can be a stressful experience, depending upon the age of the child and the budget at your disposal it can be next to impossible to get the choice right. With such a wide variety of handmade, manufactured, multi level and themed bed types on the market the choices are seemingly infinite and while you may want to include your children's opinions in the selection process, whether they have ultimate say is rarely advisable.

Naturally, including your children's opinions in the decision making process when looking at a bed is the nice thing to do, it can however cause problems. If you have more than one child, jealousy is seemingly a constant problem. If one child gets to pick a gorgeous handmade bed the other will undoubtedly want the same. As a parent you should be able to cope with these problems but making sure you have ultimate say over the choice of the children's beds can be the best path to follow.

Handmade wooden beds are becoming an evermore popular choice of bed for youngsters. Not only are they well made and will stand up to the rigours of daily life, but they can also make a stunning design feature. Ensuring you buy quality should be your main concern; nobody wants a handmade bed with nails sticking out of it and with poorly sanded areas that may cause splinters. Finding a carpenter that is skilled and understands your needs is advisable.

Thankfully handmade children's beds come in a wide variety of styles. For girls there are styles such as the fairy bed and the angel bed, perfect for your little princess. For the boys there are brilliant styles such as the football bed with a huge football for the headboard and even a train and car bed for those with a penchant for forms of transport. Remember while the choice is yours it is your children's room so getting what you would have wanted when you were younger is hardly fair.

Another consideration should be the space at your disposal; it is easy when selecting a handmade or artificial bed to forget the dimensions of the room. Children's activities normally require a fair amount of floor space and by getting a bed that is far too large for the room will only result in a lack of space for the children to play. If floor space is a major concern it is possible to find handmade beds which are raised and hence retain space for the children's activities.

Your children's rooms are their private space and the choice of bed can make these an idyll of relaxation. Of course if they share a room, bunk beds are a great solution. Just try and sort out who is on the top bunk in good time to avoid any arguments. Your child's bed should be comfortable enough for them to chill and relax. By making the bed an appealing place to be, the usual fights that occur at bed time can be negated. This should be a primary concern as getting the children off to bed can be struggle at the best of times.

Hopefully this article will aid your decision making process when selecting children's beds. As stated before it can be difficult but with careful consultation with your children, the task can be made that much easier.
