  • 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.


    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.


    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.
