  • What is the best bed frame?

    mid sleeper bed with storage

    Tog, tufting, hypoallergenic: the lexicon of beds can be surprisingly impenetrable. They’re all terms you’re likely to be unfamiliar with if you’ve just started your bed-buying journey. It goes to show, buying a bed can be bewilderingly complex. To help you get to grips with the essentials, we’ve put together a post that covers three of the most popular types of bed frames. Hopefully, you’ll find something that appeals to your aesthetic sensibilities and meets your practical requirements.

    Metal bed frames

    Metal bed frames are rarely outside the most popular choices for visitors to our site. Prized for their longevity, metal frames offer excellent value for money. They won’t wilt, dent or spoil over time, retaining their rigid structure and glossy sheen for years to come. And with an impressive range of designs available on our site, there’s something for everyone – from those who favour the decorative, traditional look iron can offer to the sleek sophistication of more modern designs.

    Canopy bed frames

    For some, the only place you should find a canopy bed is in the long-since uninhabited bedrooms of medieval European aristocrats. And, until recently, I’d have agreed with them. Canopy beds, complete with frilly curtains, were a relic of a bygone and distinctly unfashionable era. Today though, the silhouette has been reclaimed and modern design has transformed them from dreary and domineering to inviting and airy.

    They are still, however, an indulgent and dramatic choice. You really have to commit to it being the focal point of the room and arrange everything else around it. Shaped to resemble the silhouette of a house, this canopy bed from Birlea is an elegant choice that any child would be delighted to call their own.

    Bed frames with storage

    For the space-conscious homeowner, bed frames that cleverly incorporate storage into their designs are an absolute necessity. Modern designs are engineered to help you cram in even more into previously unusable dead space. The right mid sleeper bed with storage can make your room feel much, much bigger than it really is.

    Courtesy of the some of the industry’s leading brands, we’ve got an impressive and extensive selection of beds with storage, the scope of which you’ll struggle to find anywhere else – online or offline.  Julian Bowen, Stompa and Steens are just three of many renowned brands whose products we’re delighted to stock.

    We hope that you’ve emerged from reading this piece with a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of a number of popular bed frames. You should know enough to ensure that your next purchase is an informed one. If you have questions about any of our products, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can send us an email, give us a call or use the chat on our website. One of our team will be on hand to help.

  • Discover the Best Children’s Christmas Gifts: What To Buy in 2019?

    It’s that time of year again when we hang up the stockings and make a start on the never-ending children’s wishlists. Christmas can be extra special when children are involved, but there is no need to go overboard with the presents. Why not minimise the gift list this year and opt for more personalised presents or experiences for the little ones. 

    Whatever their age, we’ve put together a unique list of ideas to give the child that may already have everything that something exciting to open on Christmas day! Whether you’re looking for that BIG gesture such as bunk beds, or a bike for something active, we’ve rounded up our top picks of all the best children’s Christmas gifts below. And there’s something for everyone to keep them entertained during the ‘holiday hype’. 

    A cosy bed

    If you’re looking for that one amazing gift why not opt for beautiful new kids beds to add a touch of magic to the little one’s bedrooms. They may be demanding a big kid’s bed or perhaps you fancy a change with the decor, either way, a new bed is a great gift for children this year. Most kids go through a phase of wanting bunk beds which is a great space-saving solution if they have to share a bedroom. Check out our wide range of kids bunk beds to ensure you make the right choice as some can be uncoupled and used as twin beds when your children decide they’re too old to climb a ladder to bed.

    A shiny bike

    Another showstopping present could be their first pedal bike. If they’re ready to ditch the stabilisers why not upgrade to a spectacular mountain bike to make it a Christmas to remember! You can ease them into cycling and family bike rides or have confidence for them to go out with friends, either way, a bike that is lightweight and easy to ride in an eye-catching colour and design will be perfect for children that are active and full of life!

    Creative and personalised gifts

    Creative kids may want a present that they can personalise whether it be a jewellery box or a backpack. Personalisation goes a long way with children as it makes them feel extra special and can express their originality. Personalised books and stationary is a great gift as it will get them excited to go back to school, or surprise them with their favourite bedspread to make the bedtime routine a little easier. With these types of gifts, you'll be sure to create grins from ear to ear with your child’s favourite apparel, toys and keepsakes. Creative kids like to make their own designs as well as play with active toys such as spy gadgets, lego or make your own jewellery sets, which should keep them occupied for a few hours too.

    Family experience days 

    Make your children’s dreams come true with a gifted experience day. These can be designed for the whole family to take part in or for your little ones to bring their wildest fantasies to life. You could give them a taste for adventure with a thrilling indoor skydive day where they can experience the adrenaline rush of jumping out of a plane but from an indoor, safe activity centre. Some children would love the opportunity to play dress-up with their siblings and have a luxury photoshoot where they are the star of the show! Or if you’re the active type why not book a puzzle or escape room challenge to really put the family to the test.

    Hopefully, these children’s Christmas gift ideas have helped with the pressures of finding the perfect gift this year! Let us know if you have any other great ideas to add to the list.

  • What type of mattress is best for my child?

    children's single mattress

    The importance of finding the right mattress for your child can’t be overstated. A well-suited mattress can play a crucial role in determining the quality of your child’s sleep. And, as has been demonstrated in countless clinical trials and books, sleep is incredibly important: a poor night’s sleep hampers concentration, memory and mood.  

    There are, however, a dizzying number of things to consider before settling on a mattress. Size, firmness, and weight are just three of many things to take into account and, even after giving all of these factors commensurate thought, it can be tremendously difficult to arrive at a decision you have 100% confidence in. To help you pick the perfect mattress, we’ve put together this guide. 

    How do I choose a kids mattress? 

    While our intuition tells us we’re more likely to sleep well on a soft, fluffy mattress than a concrete floor, there isn’t a massive body of evidence that supports that assertion. Studies into the effect of mattresses have struggled to secure the independent funding that is required to produce data robust enough to stand up to scientific scrutiny.  

    Should a child sleep on a firm mattress? 

    However, an independently funded, peer-reviewed 2011 Sleep to Live study that investigated the impact of mattress firmness on sleep found that the optimal mattress firmness differs from person to person. The results serve to underline the importance of taking the time to try out a mattress for as long as possible before making a decision.  

    Size

    Picking the right size mattress can be tricky. Ideally, you’d want to pick a mattress that is big enough to accommodate for your child’s growth as they get older. But, you don’t want the mattress to occupy too much space in their room if they aren’t going to really need that a mattress of that size for a few years. Finding the balance between the two is key to selecting the right children's single mattress.

    Support 

    Mattresses need to be ergonomically designed to properly support your child’s frame as they grow. If you go for a mattress that is ill-suited to their needs, you run the risk of your child’s posture being detrimentally affected over time. A good signifier of a mattress that suits their frame is one where as much of their body as possible is in contact with the mattress at all times. This is likely to reduce the chance of any pain/soreness developing from sleeping in an awkward position for hours overnight. 

    Safety 

    In addition to thinking about size, support and any additional health considerations (like allergies), there are certain safety requirements for bunks and cabin beds. Each structure is only able to support a specific weight and being aware of this is essential for every customer looking into a potential mattress. 

    Children’s mattresses are crucial in determining your child’s quality of sleep. It is, however, important to note that factors like diet, lifestyle and even watching too much TV or spending too much time on the computer before bed are just as pivotal in affecting your child’s sleep.

  • What age can your child use a bunk bed?

    bunk beds for small rooms

    If your child has started school, they may have already started clamouring for bunk beds. For kids, bunk beds hold a kind of magnetic appeal – they represent the excitement of getting older and new responsibilities. For parents, children’s bunk beds are a stylish and reliable choice and, crucially, they create precious space in already crowded bedrooms.  But how old should your kids be before they can safely use a bunk bed? And what considerations need to be made before making a purchase?

    When can kids use a bunk bed?

    As you’ll know if you’ve seen Stepbrothers, bunk beds are only as safe as the people making – and using - them. If your kids are mature enough to use the bunk beds as they are intended – without using the top bunk as a diving platform – they are absolutely safe to use.

    Kids are old enough to use a bunk bed when you are sure they are mature enough to use them safely. The only chance at all of your children encountering any harm whatsoever stems from using the bunk beds irresponsibly – not from any inherent design flaw or faulty materials.

    If you have any concerns or doubts about their ability to use the bunk beds safely, you can mitigate the risk by opting for low bunk beds. We have one of the most extensive selections of small bunk beds in the UK and we can help find a solution that dispels any reservations you may have.

    Are bunk beds safe?

    Safety is of paramount importance to manufacturers and each product is carefully designed to minimise the possibility of anyone getting injured.

    Almost all of our products are covered by 1 year manufacturer warranties too. So, if it doesn’t meet your expectations, you’ll have the opportunity to replace it or get your money back.

    Additionally, if you have any reservations about assembling the bunk beds yourself, they do come with detailed instructions – eliminating the possibility of uncertainty clouding your work and adversely affecting the beds.

    What is the maximum age for bunk beds?

    There isn’t necessarily a maximum age for bunk beds. Age doesn’t determine a child’s suitability for a bunk bed – but height and weight definitely can. Different bunk beds have different maximum weight capacities. The size specifications for each bed are listed on the product page (including length and width) but if, for whatever reason, you can’t find all the information you need, don’t hesitate to send us an email or give us a call. Our team are always on hand to field any of your questions and ensure you the get the best fit for your home.

    If you want the bunk bed to last for a long time (and be able to weather the storm of any out-of-the-blue growth spurts) you should consider getting a bed that is considerably larger than your child’s current frame. There are a variety of cool bunk beds suitable for a range of ages and sizes. Have a look on our website to view and compare space-saving bunk beds from leading manufacturers.

  • The Real Monsters your Children are Worrying About this Halloween (Stress and Fears in 2019)

    It’s the month of scary costumes, excessive amounts of candy and spooky Jack-o'-lanterns. Halloween brings many monsters and most children believe them not to be true, but what about the real terrors your children might have, from natural disasters to everyday worries.  A child is forever increasing their awareness of the world, the people in it and adjusting to bad things that can happen. Many of our children’s fears come out of things they have observed or experienced and as they continue to grow and become independent, they are less likely to depend on parents and carers which may harbour some worry. It is our job to be mindful that it may take more than tucking them into their fun kids beds and reading a bedtime story to stop them from worrying!

    For younger children, fear is often mitigated through connection with caring parents who make them feel safe and offer reassurance. When children experience separation as they get older their fears and worries can become apparent. As a child ages, they will need to find both courage and tears to face their fears. This growth can be cultivated with the help of adults they trust and can count on, and we have highlighted some points that may be of use to parents looking to comfort their children when it comes to stressful times and addressing their fears.

    Connecting with your children

    When children are worried, they look for support from their closest caretakers. Some of the best comforts we can offer is to listen to their concerns and acknowledge how they are feeling, in order to help minimise their fears. Talking about our worries can sometimes be enough, so give them your full attention and reassure them that you are there if they need to talk about anything.

    Tackle fear head on

    Kids are constantly interacting with the world around them and sometimes this may trigger a thought or feeling. If they are to become startled or show signs of fear, being able to turn this into a playful experience and tackle the fear head on can help to diffuse the intensity of the feeling or situation. Playing traditional games such as hide and seek, peek a boo, and telling bedtime stories that include risk and fear can introduce them to signals of fear and this way they may be less likely to kidnap their emotional systems.

    Encourage them to be brave

    Children 5 and under are sometimes less likely to demonstrate courage due to the lack of coordination in their brain when experiencing emotions and knowing how to deal with them. Younger kids can only fathom one intense feeling at a time and so fear can overwhelm them leaving them feeling frustrated. Children who are slightly older can be introduced to things that might be new or scary and we can encourage them not to let their fears take the lead. As responsible adults, we can help older children to express what concerns them. Inspire them to find their words for what worries them, this way it can help them to be courageous and face their fears head on.

    Allow them to express emotions

    When a child becomes fearful, they may want to cry and lash out as they do not know how to deal with breathtaking emotions relating to sadness or worry. Allowing children to cry will allow them to release the fear and give some resiliency in the face of their worries.

    Adopt a good sleep routine

    Sometimes night time can be when your child is most fearful and not even fun kids beds can aid night terrors. Being left alone in the dark can allow thoughts and feelings to creep into their mind and make them scared. By setting a bedtime routine for your child it prepares them that they will have to go to sleep soon. A consistent routine will allow for a smooth transition from daytime activities to the relaxed state of mind needed for a good night’s sleep.

    Let us know how you help your little one deal with the worries and fears they may experience.

  • Creative space-saving solutions

    Parisot Midsleeper Cabin Bed with Desk

    As kids get older, they need more and more space in their bedroom. Not only do they grow in stature, but their range of interests grows too. Their bedroom space needs to be able to accommodate new clothes and shoes as well as the items that accompany their growing list of hobbies. Unfortunately, your house doesn’t grow with your kids. You have more stuff than ever before but the same amount of space to fit it all into. We’ve come up with a variety of ways you can more efficiently use the space in your home.

    Cabin beds with storage

    A bed occupies the most space in a bedroom. When you’re pressed for space, any way you can utilise this space more efficiently should be welcomed. Midsleeper cabin beds that incorporate storage are a must for getting the most out of your space. We have a range of space-saving beds available from quality brands. The extensive range of options caters for all tastes and requirements: you’ll find mid sleeper beds in a variety of sizes and designs.

    Cabin beds with desk

    When kids start school, they need a space that gives them everything they need to learn effectively. As well as a quiet room free from distractions, they need a desk. Fitting a desk into an already cramped space can seem like an impossible task. Thanks to the innovation of industry-leading manufacturers though, there are products that integrate a bed and a desk into one space-saving product. There’s an impressive range of options available on our site in a comprehensive range of sizes, making finding a product that is ideal for your needs straightforward.

    Colour

    If you’ve ran out of ways to create more space, you can turn to the powerful psychological impact colour can have. Without completely overhauling you bedroom, you can make it feel bigger for the price of nothing more than a few tins of paint. Lighter colours reflect light and darker colours absorb light. Because of this, lighter colours appear to recede, making a space look bigger than it really is, while darker colours appear to advance, making a space look smaller than it really is. So, to maximise your space, consider using lighter colours for the walls and ceiling.

    Clothing rack

    It might be slightly unorthodox but opting to use a sleek, simple clothing rack instead of a bulky, boxy wardrobe can be a great way to create space. A stylish, minimalist approach to designing and decorating a bedroom that looks great while eliminating any unnecessary excess. Minimise expense and maximise space.

    Shelving

    And, depending on the age of your children, putting out-of-reach, high shelves in their bedroom might be an idea worth pursuing. Floating shelves give you the opportunity to stash away stuff in an area you’d never be able to use anyway. And thanks to the simple, minimalist design, they are usually inexpensive to get hold of too.

    Hopefully, in this post, you’ve picked up a few different ways you can make the most of the space you have available to you. If you have any useful space-saving ideas, please let us know in the comments.

     

  • How to Get your Home Back to School Ready (The Secret to Success in 2019)

    Whilst we continue to adjust to the new sleeping patterns and regain our regular space at the school gates it is also important to turn our attention to our home environment that can aid our children’s academic success. Start the school year off right with a little preparation to make the transition from summer park to schoolyard a bit smoother. From supporting kids emotionally to reviewing homework, and purchasing the latest childrens furniture set, all to equip them with the best support, tools and space for the job!

    Adjusting to new schedules can be stressful for both kids and parents but creating household structure and planning can make all the difference for the academic year ahead!

    Put a plan in place

    The key to success is planning. From getting school bags and lunches ready the night before, to laying out clothes the morning of the school routine. This way you can enjoy breakfast and even take some photos of your children in their school uniform. If you were extra prepared before the school term started, you would have had a chance to clean out closets and try on clothes in order to replace any new items you may have needed.

    Whilst clothes and shoes are probably taken care of, you may have left the rest of the school supplies to space out the cost. As well as the usual staple items, pens, paper, and colouring pencils, you may need a new clean children’s desk or a full children’s furniture set to create the ideal study spot.

    Practice makes perfect

    It is all well and good having the perfect plan but putting these into practice is another story. Leading up to the start of the school term it is a good idea to practice your bedtime and morning routines, so it doesn’t come as such a shock to their system when it’s no longer a drill and the alarm goes off for real! Making sure both you and your child have enough sleep, as well as time for breakfast, is crucial for feeding and replenishing a healthy body and mind.

    Creating the ideal space

    Trying to make the seamless transition from summer mode to school term can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. Getting organised and re-jigging the home furniture are just a few things to consider when creating the ideal space for school kids. You may want to provide a reading space that is comfortable and complete with a great source of light. For younger children try a fun reading tent to go over their bed or a giant comfy cushion to go on the floor with a blanket for colder evenings. Try letting your child read aloud to you whilst you do the ironing or get the school uniform ready.

    Desks for children’s bedrooms are a great way to create a working space. Find a place for a children’s bookcase as well to fill with exciting reads to encourage more independent reading, a fantastic way to help them unwind after a long day at school.

    Adjust and amend routine

    Once the academic term is in full swing, you may have to plan for doctor’s appointments, hairdressers and other things that can fit into their new school timetable. We suggest setting up an online Google calendar to schedule these along with other after school activities that may crop up.

    Let us know some of your back to school top tips so we can make the new school year as stress-free as possible!

  • Choosing Colours for your Child’s Bedroom that may Improve their Mood

    Some parents may feel that they can improve their children’s moods by adding colours in the house. These colours can also be included in your children’s bedrooms to aid with tantrums and heighten their good moods. Perhaps you don’t fancy splashing colour all over the walls so you could incorporate colour into the boys cabin beds or your childs midsleeper in the form of a patterned tent or duvet set.

    Studies suggest that choosing specific colours can boost your home’s value by up to 5% should you wish to sell your house or move in the future. This can do wonders for your mood, and if certain colours can also evoke a positive response in your children then it’s a no brainer to whip out the paint brushes and add that pop of colour to your living space!

    Before redecorating you may wish to research colour psychology in order to set the right tone in each room of your home. If painting isn’t for you, we suggest adding throws or blankets, pillows, frames, vases, rugs and other accessories in your desired colour. Be sure to steer away from black as too much of this can be depressing. Instead, make use of white throughout your home for a peaceful state of mind and add accents of colour to each space. Read some of the colour options below for the ambience you are looking to bring to your home.

    Purple

    Purple is considered calming, perfect for those tantrums you can’t control. It can be a trickier colour to place in your home and is often a favourite of little girls. Stimulate your daughter’s brain activity and keep the peace with a new purple inspired bedroom.

    Blue

    Blue is the most common colour used in the household and can provide us with a well-rested nights sleep. It can also boost imaginative thinking, so it might be worth adding some cool blue tones to your rooms to enhance your child’s creative thinking. Not only a former favourite colour but it is believed to reduce heart rates and lower body temperatures.

    Green

    Green can be the most refreshing colour for your home helping us to focus and promote fresh ideas. This colour is considered more versatile as it can also have a relaxing effect, represent renewal and good health. Maybe it’s time to introduce green into the bedroom and why not add more delicious fruits and vegetables at the dinner table! We love adding greenery in the form of plants to the home.

    Red

    Red conveys passion, power and strength. This colour is more dominant over the others and can convey energy and excitement. Unlike its cool blue friend, red raises blood pressure and can increase the heart rate. A passionate, warm colour like red is best for the dining room space rather than firing up your child when you’re trying to get them to go to sleep! If they insist on red, why not compromise with a darker shade of pink as this colour is calming and again, a preferred colour choice for most girls.

    Orange

    If you’re looking to get your child to interact more then orange may be the colour for you. Social interaction is promoted with this colour as it is considered to increase happiness. We often associate orange with energy and warmth and when used sparingly can have a positive effect on your little ones.

    Yellow

    Lastly, the colour yellow enhances metabolism. Great for fussy eaters! Like orange, it is a happy colour. Often connected with the sun it can uplift our moods and inspire hope and confidence about the future. We are certainly staying optimistic when it comes to using yellow!

  • Story time: three books your little one will love

    mid sleeper bed

    Reading before bed isn’t just an enjoyable way to introduce your kids to an important skill, it should help tire them out at the end of a long day. It’s a healthy interest for kids to develop early. Whether they’re taking in their first picture books or they’re starting to read independently, we’ve got the book for them.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar

    This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Eric Carle’s creation: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Educational as well as entertaining, the book follows the caterpillar on his culinary adventures right through to his transformation into a butterfly. The creative design, holes punched throughout the book show the various foods that have been eaten, has continued to captivate children for decades. Selling well over 50 million copies, its popularity has transcended the world of children’s picture books, spanning toys, video games and a TV series.

    Where the Wild Things Are

    Initially received poorly by critics, Where the Wild Things Are went on to net Maurice Sendak the Caldecott medal in 1964. A beloved children’s picture book that captures the turbulent emotions and fierce imagination of Max: a wolf suit clad boy in the midst of a disagreement with his mother. The story follows Max from his bedroom into the world of the ‘Wild Things’ and back again. The unique window into the childhood psyche that the book provides has meant that it has been the subject of endless debate - even provoking psychoanalytic responses. It is a book that has proved enduringly enticing for young children, the sheer number of kids gravitating towards it in the year of its release helped change popular perceptions of the book. A live action adaptation of the book, directed by Spike Jonze, came out in 2009 – demonstrating its continued resonance decades after it was first released.

    Charlotte’s Web

    The consensus pick for critics in a BBC poll about the best children’s books, EB White’s Charlotte’s Web incorporates a range of deeply important themes into a captivating tale about the friendship between a pig and a spider. It’s widely considered an American literary classic and, for slightly older kids, it’s an enjoyable read that will have them pondering (perhaps for the first time) mortality, change and friendship. If they enjoyed the book, there’s a film to watch too!

    Kids’ beds

    Creating an environment that is conducive to your kids’ reading is incredibly important. A clutter-free space where they can relax and unwind at the end of the day can help their reading habit – and their sleep - flourish. A mid sleeper bed gives you the luxury of space – in addition to a high vantage point where your child can curl up with a book. Whether you use this space to stow away toys or as a reading den or play area, it’s a welcome addition to any room. If you have any questions about any of our cabin beds, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
