How to choose children's beds: a guide to the most practical and original models

When it comes to equipping a children's room, there are many doubts, as many variables are involved. We assume that we create a unique and very important space, because the children's room is a place designed exclusively for the well-being, games and fun of the youngest household members. It must be a friendly, colourful and practical space that allows children to move freely in it, but above all a safe place. We can create the funniest place in the world, but unless we take every precaution to be appropriate for the safety of our children, we'll never feel comfortable leaving them alone.

 

Furniture for a children's room: what to do and what not to do  

 

The first thing to do when arranging a child's room is to create a cosy place that suits our children. In case we have one or more children, we will arrange a not too big room, preferably located near our bedroom, so that we can keep the little ones under control without being too obtrusive. We will choose a bright space, exposed to natural light, and that won't be too hot or too cold.

 

The style of the furniture and the colours of the children's room

 

Once you've chosen the perfect space, it's time to give your children's room a recognisable style and aesthetic. We advise you to focus on simple interior style, preferably modern, because it is easier to arrange and lighter in relation to the stiffer classic style. The most popular furnishing styles are actually minimalist and modern styles.

  

Modern style for a child's room

 

When thinking about our children, it is always better to choose a style of furniture that is easy to arrange and that reflects the tastes of both adults and children. That's why we recommend modern style. In order not to go crazy with the choice of furniture, we advise you to choose elements with minimal and economical shapes, by choosing furniture in natural shades, such as wood.  We recommend that you use multifunctional furniture, such as a bookcase that will also act as a bookcase, or a space-saving chest of drawers to keep more delicate clothes in order, such as pyjamas or some fancy clothes. You will also need a spacious wardrobe, not too large, in which you will store everything you need for the children's room, e.g. bedding.

 

Minimalistic style for a child's room

 

Along with the modern style, the interior design style for the children's room is minimalist style. The elements to choose from are characterised by an essential, simple and aesthetically clean shape. Again, choose a wooden finish or a  total white option  for a greater balance of shapes, nuances and materials. The furniture and accessories that we cannot miss are practical furniture with soft shapes and rounded corners to avoid injuries in minor accidents during play. A spacious wardrobe and a desk will be indispensable accessories here, especially if the children are of school age.

 

Preferred colours for the children's room

 

Once we choose the style of furniture for the children's room, furniture and accessories, we can decide which colours will make the children's room super cosy and original. We advise you to use a colour palette whose shades are cosy but not too expressive, because remember that you are still in the sleeping zone. It is extremely fundamental that children sleep properly, especially when they are very young.

The colours to focus on are bright. You can try to combine them with neutral shades, more bright colours such as blue or green, or yellow and orange, to try in their softest possible shades. Neutral colours can be used separately, but also to create various types of transitions with more sophisticated shades that will enliven the interior and make the bedroom not aesthetically flat or simply boring.

What is the most important element that makes each bedroom unique and original? It is undoubtedly the bed.

 

How to choose children's beds: tips and ideas for every nursery

 

Choosing children's beds is a very important moment when arranging a children's room. In fact, the bed is fundamental to this space and is the most important element of the room. It arranges and defines the environment in accordance with the design and aesthetics it represents. A minimalist-shaped bed will allow us to dabble in other types of room furniture, such as an extravagant-coloured desk or patterned wallpaper.

We choose children's beds according to the needs of the youngest. And so: we will choose the most appropriate model, bearing in mind:

  1. The age of the children; a certain age group will make us choose one model and not another.
  2. Finish and bed colours . Most of our models have a wooden finish that makes each model simple but also elegant.
  3. Bed aesthetics. Will we focus on beds with a simple design, , or do we dare to choose more unique models, such as house shaped beds
  4. Beds for one or more children. How many children sleep and play in the nursery? Depending on their number, we can choose practical and stylish solutions.

Let's start with the first point, namely the age group, probably the most important thing to keep in mind when choosing children's beds.

 

The choice of children's beds depending on age

 

Children's age is one of the first things to consider when choosing your dream bed. This fact helps us find the right model. While some solutions may be original and convenient, they are not suitable for all ages. Let's see together a few suggestions taken from our catalogue.

 

 

Beds for children from 0 to 3 years old

 

The 0-3 years age group is one of the most delicate and  therefore more attention to safety and the practical aspect of the bed is needed instead of its aesthetics.  Of course, in our catalogue you will find attractive solutions in terms of pattern, design and safety, but in this age group you cannot choose more unique models such as mezzanines.

That is why we advise you to opt for simple yet effective models, such as our modern and elegant single beds for children.

 

Single bed for children Lara

 

One of the last new products that you can find in our online store is the Lara single bed for children. This bed has a simple design that adapts to any furnishing style, from the most classic to more contemporary. The Lara children's bed has universal entrances, both on the left and right side. It is also possible to remove the protective barriers that are there.

A model with a minimalistic aesthetic, made of first-class wood, without knots. The wooden boards that were used in its production are 25 mm thick, which is a rarity in the production of children's beds, but which we really wanted for this bed, so that we could give you the opportunity to have an exclusive, but at the same time functional product. For the safety of the little ones, all edges have been carefully cut and rounded. This is a must for people looking for a unique and practical interior design.

 

Beds for children from 3 to 6 years old

 

For children in the 3 to 6 age group, we have several types of suggestions. We advise you to always take a look at single beds, because they offer many solutions that allow us to choose models ranging from very simple aesthetics to more sophisticated and original proposals.

We encourage you to choose different kinds of models if there is more than one child in the room.  Let's see which models to choose.

 

 

Pull-out double beds: perfect solutions for a children's room with several children

 

The double pull-out beds are really comfortable, and at the same time they are a modern proposition that no one will be indifferent to in the children's room. We recommend this type of bed especially in the age group from 3 to 6 years, because thanks to this solution, both and the second child can safely use both beds.  

They are comfortable solutions that keep children safe, but also perfect space-saving furniture, not at all overwhelming, very practical and functional. Also often referred to as extendable beds, consist of 2 beds or more.

The first bed looks like a normal single bed placed on a slightly higher level than a standard classic bed. Below, there is a second bed that can be pulled out and placed next to the first, only lower. The second bed is in a drawer, which makes the structure stable, well-balanced and, above all, safe. There are also models that provide for a third additional bed.

 

Timon Duo children's bed

 

The Timon Duo children's bed is the perfect solution for those who have several children sleeping in the same room. Thanks to this model, little ones can keep each other company at night without disturbing each other's sleep.

The design of the bed is very simple, and thanks to its simple aesthetics, it will perfectly match any type of furniture, from traditional to more modern proposals. It is made of the highest quality pine wood, and to protect the safety of the youngest, all edges have been properly cut and rounded. Like all our products that you can find in the catalogue, the paints used in the production of furniture are very safe for children's health.

The Timon Duo model has a drawer with a sleeping function. The solution mentioned above gives children a good night's rest and plenty of space to play during the day. Perfect as an extra bed for both guests and siblings.

As we mentioned before, you can also choose Three-Bed Reclining Beds, such as our Paul Trio children's bed.  

 

Paul Trio children's bed with a drawer with a sleeping function

 

The Paul Trio children's bed with a drawer with sleep function is a double solution made on 2 levels with a bed function drawer. The bed has been made of the highest quality pine wood  . For the safety of the youngest users, all edges have been properly cut and rounded, and the paints used in the production are safe for children.

This is also a consideration for those who have three children or have friends and cousins overnight.  The solution mentioned above gives children a good night's rest and plenty of space to play during the day. The model has a universal entrance that can be mounted both on the left and on the right and the option of removing the safety barrier.

The bed has been painted with water-based paints, certified, odourless and safe for the health of children and meeting current European standards. The maximum load of the drawer with the sleeping function is 80 kg.

 

Beds for children from 6 to 12 years old

 

The age range from 6 to 12 years is the one that allows us to have more choice in terms of model types, colours and style. Here we can dare to use more expressive colours, departing from neutral shades and play with warmer and more intense nuances. The wooden finishes remain because they are the most friendly and comfortable, especially when it comes to the sleep zone, but we can start adapting furniture with metal surfaces, very elegant indeed. When it comes to choosing different types of beds, we can choose bunk beds or, if you prefer and the space allows it, even mezzanine beds

Here are some ideas to make the children's room unique and original.

 

 

Bunk beds for children: a practical and colourful solution

 

Bunk beds are an original solution, loved by children, and really practical and functional furniture. They save a lot of space because their structure unfolds vertically and does not take up the space of 2 or 3 beds, but only one, even if it only offers  2, thanks to the way the beds are arranged.

The originality of our bunk beds, which you will find in the catalogue, is the fact that most models have an extremely practical function that allows you to divide the entire structure into 2 separate parts. This solution seems especially useful for anyone who wants to change the layout of the room or has decided to move one of the 2 beds to another room.

Our bunk beds come in a variety of designs and styles. We can find here simple solutions that are characterised by essential and minimalist aesthetics. These models are often chosen because they are versatile and can be easily adapted to any type of children's room. For those who want to focus on more unique models or a fun and original design, we have more sophisticated solutions in our catalogue to personalise our child's room as much as possible.

 

 

Wanda Plus W1 bunk bed for children

 

Wanda Plus bunk bed for children W1 is the perfect solution for small children's rooms that can accommodate 2 or more children. The design is really simple and the model is very practical to use. Modern aesthetics that adapt to any decor, not only the more minimalist.

The bed is made of first-class solid wood, properly selected, without discolouration and knots. The space between the floors allows even an adult to sit comfortably. The edges of the entire structure have been cut, and the safety barriers will make children feel safe and comfortable. Only water-based paints were used in the production process, which are very safe for the health of the youngest. Bunk beds are recommended for children 6 years of age and older.

If you want to choose a different model than usual, choose our unique mezzanine beds for your children.

 

Loft beds for children: a non-standard solution 

 

The mezzanine bed is one of the most original proposals when it comes to choosing a bed to equip your children's room. At first glance, it reminds us of a bunk bed, but you only need to look at it carefully to realise that these are two completely different solutions.

The mezzanine does not actually have a lower section as it only has a top bed. This means that the lower part, initially empty, can be furnished at your own discretion at a later date and in accordance with the needs and the functionality of the children's room and the personality of the children who live in it.

Don't forget that this type of bed is recommended for children aged 6 and over.  Why? Due to the level of independence. Growing up, the child will gain more autonomy and we will also feel more comfortable allowing them to sleep on the mezzanine. To make the bed more friendly and fun, we advise you to decorate the ceiling with wallpaper or some other original element that will give the room a unique and stylish character.

 

Hubi children's mezzanine bed

 

Hubi mezzanine bed is the perfect solution for those who have little space, but are still looking for an original proposal for a children's room.

In the space below, the free one, we can place cabinets, a desk or organise an original playground for our children. The mezzanine is made of solid wood in combination with a chipboard. It has a stable wooden ladder that can be placed in the front or on the side, depending on your needs.

This solution guarantees children a good night's rest and space below, perfect for playing or learning. The original design and safety rail will make children feel safe and comfortable.
