  • 6 Tips to Help your Child get a Good Night's Sleep

    Do you feel that your child could be getting a better night’s sleep? Many children have trouble settling down and as parents, we know first-hand the impact a bad night’s sleep can have on them. A poor sleeping pattern can result in children being irritable as well as being less attentive in school and behaving badly at home. There may be several reasons that your child isn’t getting a good night’s sleep and although some parents worry that its technology that interferes most with sleeping routines, we have listed some other things that could be causing a restless night’s sleep.

    Read some of our suggestions on how to improve your child’s sleeping from choosing the right schedule to introducing exercise routines and creating a cool and calming space with childrens midsleeper beds for them to relax and unwind before hitting the hay!

    Sleeping Schedule

    Setting a regular bedtime and wake-up schedule for your children is essential for a good night’s sleep. Sometimes setting a schedule is all and well and good but sticking to it can be another story. It is important for little ones to have a consistent sleeping schedule so that their body clock will know what to expect, it will also ensure that they are getting enough sleep each night.

    Bedroom Space

    Creating the perfect bedroom space for your child plays a part in allowing them to drift off into a deep sleep. Be sure to make your child’s room a fun space so that they look forward to going to bed. The childrens midsleeper beds are a great way to incorporate some playfulness into the room especially if you add a cool tent and some fairy lights. At night-time encourage a quiet and cool environment, perhaps add a fan to their bedroom during summer to cool down the temperature before they get tucked in.  Keep light to a minimum and make sure all clutter is tidied away. A decluttered room makes for a decluttered mind allowing them to drift off and catch those all-important zzz’s.

    Bedtime Routine

    Once the bedroom is a calming and tidy place for your child to unwind it’s time to introduce the relaxing bedtime routine. A nice, warm bath with some warm milk and a story is the perfect way to end the day! You could even use some soothing music to help relax and settle them.

    Limit Sugar Intake

    Limiting their sugar intake is crucial in helping them settle. Avoid giving children any sugary snack and soft drinks at least six hours before they are due to go to bed.

    Avoid TV

    If you can, remove or at least limit TV use in the bedroom at night-time. Evening television can be troubling for children and may result in night terrors. Certainly, avoid any scary stories or TV shows before bed.

    Exercise

    Lastly, exercising can tire children out and make for a good night’s sleep. Encourage walks with the family or bike rides but limit these activities to the day as any vigorous exercise before bedtime may result in an unnecessary splurge of energy!

  • 5 Tips for Decorating your Kids Bedroom this Summer

    It is sometimes difficult to make a children’s bedroom function well and remain a fun space for them. If you are looking to decorate your kids’ bedroom this summer, then you will want to consider a few things before you begin. Think about storage, space, ambience and above all else, functionality. Whether you are looking for a full bedroom makeover or wish to invest in a new bed such as our Julian Bowen mid sleeper to revamp the space we have put together our top 5 tips for all your decorating needs.

    The bed

    So, you may wish to update your children’s bed this summer to give a new and fresh feel to their bedroom. Julian Bowen childrens beds are great for adding a statement to their space and come in a variety of options from the Julian Bowen mid sleeper to more traditional Julian Bowen bunk beds in both wood and metal. With a variety of additional storage options, pull out under beds and choice of colours, Julian Bowen childrens beds are perfect for decorating your little one’s bedroom.

    The colour palette

    Your child’s taste may seem like it changes more than the weather some days so choosing to paint the bedroom their favourite colour might not be the best idea. We suggest keeping your walls neutral in colour except for one which could be a wallpaper feature wall, painted or include a giant chalkboard for the little ones to help you out.

    Fold-down desk

    It’s important to have somewhere for your child to sit quietly to do their homework but desks can sometimes take up a lot of space. Perhaps you could try a fold-down desk to utilise the area or include a desk underneath their bed.

    Wall Hooks

    Children often like to throw their bags, clothes and toys on the floor instead of tidying them away nicely. Why not invest in some wall hooks to encourage them to hang up their coats and sleepover bags. These will also help to fill any blank wall space in the bedroom. You could try adding extra shelving for storing toys and displaying their photos and special awards.

    Under bed storage

    With under bed storage, you have the option to fill it with additional toyboxes for all their toys, desks as an alternative to the fold-down desk or seating for them to entertain friends. As well as our Julian Bowen childrens beds we have plenty of other options by bestselling brand Steens for kids. The Steens Memphis bed is another favourite among parents and children, as the Steens beds provide both style and space to play and get creative.
