Children typically transition out of their baby crib and into a children’s bed from as early as 18 months old. A children’s bed is smaller in size as compared to a regular bed, and they will usually come with child-safe features like sides all around, or an extendable function that enables you to convert it to a regular bed easily. Of course, the design of a children’s bed will have to appeal to your child as they will be first-hand users.

As homes are getting smaller with greater space constraints, a kid’s bunk bed will be perfect, where extra storage for play and learning needs can all come together in a single setup. Ideally, a designated children’s bedroom help in encouraging good habits such as taking care of their belongings and tidying up after themselves.

Children grow up faster than you can imagine. Before you know it, they are in their tweens (ages between 8 to 12 years old) with different requirements on how a bed should function and look. Therefore, it is good to take into account the total number of years a children’s bed can get its use and how much you are willing to spend.

Montessori beds are designed to be low to the ground, allowing children to access and exit their beds independently. This promotes a sense of freedom and encourages children to take charge of their own sleep routine.

The low height of Montessori beds reduces the risk of injury from falls. It enables toddlers and young children to climb in and out of bed safely without the need for additional barriers or assistance.

Fortytwo Frost Teepee Trundle Bed, $539

Since young, I always loved the idea of being in a teepee, it is one of my bucket listss to go on a teepee glamping stay as an adult too. However, setting up a teepee in a compact home is a challenge when large furniture pieces take up most of the available space. Therefore, a teepee bed is brilliant for your little explorer to play pretend as though they are outdoors and sleeping with the animals.

The fabric cut-out windows ensure good air ventilation and the under-bed trundle makes sleepovers possible with their BFFs.

Frost teepee trundle bed is available at $539, and comes in pink, blue, and white tent colours on FortyTwo.

Piccolo House Natty Bedside Bed, $649

As a mom to a newborn, I know how a guarded bed is important for nighttime safety since children tend to roll around unknowingly in their sleep. The last thing you want is to be greeted by an injured kid in the morning, hence guards and rails are essential for younger kids. What’s great is you will be able to remove the guards once your child gets older and no longer requires them.

Aside from beds with sides all around, you will also find various options of cot beds, bunk beds, loft beds, and single beds for every stage of your child’s needs in the Natty bed series. Furthermore, there are matching accessories like step stools, toy cabinets, and bookshelves that are in the same lovely Scandinavian style too.

Natty bedside bed is available from $649 at Piccolo House.
