Your child’s bed is the most important piece of furniture in his room. Deciding on the right bed will make all the difference to everyone receiving a peaceful night’s sleep. Choosing a bed with exciting features will encourage your child to go to bed and stay in bed.
Boy’s beds are available in different styles from single beds, mid sleeper beds, high sleeper beds, and themed beds. Choosing the right style for your child can depend on the age of the child, the size of the bedroom and personal requirements.
Choosing a themed bed for your little boy is a great starter bed as it encourages your child to want to go to bed and most importantly stay in bed. Themed beds come in many different styles including pirate ships, racing cars, fire trucks and bulldozers. Themed beds are great for development and will allow your child’s imagination to run wild.
Single beds are excellent money savers as they will last your child right up to there teen years. Single beds are perfect for placing a trundle underneath so they can have there friends stay over or alternatively placing storage drawers for toys or bits and bobs underneath. Single beds can be just as exciting as themed beds or cabin beds by purchasing your child’s favourite character as a duvet or placing bed canopies above the bed.
Cabin beds and mid sleepers are ideal for smaller bedrooms as they provide a compact structure with pull out desks and built in drawers. The cabin bed has an elevated sleeping area that can be easily accessed via the sturdy ladder, and features safety rails around the sleeping area to reduce the risk of your child falling out of bed. Cabin beds come in neutral colours and can be accessorised with your little boy’s favourite colour. Cabin beds are recommended for child aged 6 years and above.
High sleepers are the highest bed you can purchase for your child. The high sleeper is great for smaller bedrooms or for children who want space to relax in there bedroom. The high sleeping area can be accessed via sturdy ladders and features safety rails to reduce the risk of your child falling out of bed. Underneath the sleeping area you can place a futon that is great for relaxing on and can be folded out to create a bed for guests to stay over. The high sleeper is also great for placing a desk, low wardrobe or chest of drawers.
Decorating your son’s bedroom can be a fun process especially if you get your little one involved in the design process. Blue is a popular colour tone when decorating a boy’s bedroom and can look amazing with white finished bedroom furniture. A blue and white stripped feature wall is an ideal back drop for a reading corner or a beautiful white bed or themed boat bed.
Green is a forgotten colour that can look beautiful in a boy’s bedroom if accompanied with the right colour palette. Placing creams, navy blues and grey tones with green can create a stylish look that is unique and exciting.
If you are wanting your child’s bedroom to grow with them then keeping the walls a more neutral colour and accessorising with greens or blues will make it easier to update there room as there interests develop.
If you prefer to style your child’s bedroom in there favourite cartoon character, but your freestyle art skills are not up to scratch then maybe consider a walltastic art mural as a feature wall. Walltastic have a large selection of all your children’s favourite characters including Disney Pixar Cars, Star Wars and Spiderman. The beautiful mural is designed to fit floor to ceiling for maximum impact when you enter the room.
Furniture is great for providing a place to store all your child’s toys and essentials for a clutter free environment. Wardrobes, chest of drawers and bedside tables are essential furniture pieces that offer excellent storage and will contribute to completing your child’s bedroom. Adding a desk and bookcase are ideal for your growing child and will encourage them to develop through reading or studying.
Coloured furniture is a great way to colour co-ordinate with the bedroom so everything is matching. Purchasing neutral coloured furniture will suit all décor and will still suit the bedroom if you decide to decorate further down the line.
Accessorising your child’s bedroom is a fun way of adding useful items that they can play with. A beanbag is a great addition to a reading corner as it provides a comfortable place for them to snuggle up on and read their book. Colourful canvases, chalkboards and clothes pegs are great ways to discourage your child from drawing or defacing the walls in there bedroom.
