  • 5 Top Picks for a Childrens Bedroom

    At the Children’s Bed Shop we are constantly trying to think of new ways to decorate or spruce up the little one’s bedrooms. We recognise that it is important to inject fun and functionality into their space as well as showcasing their personality where we can, whether it be with their favourite cartoon character or superhero. It is crucial to find childrens beds and bedroom furniture that is of good quality and durable, whether you opt for childrens bunk beds or a high or mid sleeper. It needs to be able to stand up to the rough and tumble of a child’s life: it should be cleanable, anti-allergy and resilient.

    Providing them with educational activities such as games boards and puzzles may also help them to learn and develop. Lastly, make sure the space is colourful and vibrant with an element of fun! Take a look at our 5 top picks for your childrens bedroom below:

    Add themes or characters

    As your kids grow, they will want their room to reflect their latest interests. This will allow them to stimulate their senses and express personality. Try a rug that shows your child’s favourite TV character or a superhero wall decal to protect them while they sleep.

    Educational activities

    Games and activities are more than just fun for children, they may also help with physical development and early learning.  Playing board games as a family is a fun way to introduce these types of educational activities. Children like to keep busy so you could try a range of activities from arts and crafts, cooking, music and dance as well as basic academic skills such as reading, writing and drawing. Keep the activities simple, and unfortunately for parents, the messier the activity, the more they seem to like it!

    Bedroom furniture

    When it comes to childrens beds and bedroom furniture whether you choose childrens bunk beds or a childs cabin bed one thing to bear in mind is how durable the product is, and of course, you want good value for money. Children can be messy and literally throw themselves at everything! Therefore, it is best to buy furniture that is resilient and will stand up against everything that your little ones fling at it, including themselves!

    With tumbles and messy fingers, it is important that the products you purchase are cleanable and of course, safe for your little ones. Comfort is key and some beds can make playtime more enjoyable, especially childrens bunk beds, but making sure the quality of the bed provides a safe structure for your child is crucial. We only stock the best quality and value at the Children’s Bed Shop with many of our best items now on sale.

    Decorate the space

    When it comes to decorating your child’s space you want to cram the room full of energy! Vibrant colours are perfect for a kid’s bedroom, you could even include them in your decision, creating memories as you learn about their favourite colours, allowing their personality to shine through. We have some other useful tips on a previous blog post on how to decorate your kids bedroom.

    Allergies

    No one can blame us for wanting to wrap our little ones in balls of cotton wool. When they are young, we are still finding out about possible allergies as well as their likes and dislikes. When it comes to accessorising the space look for products made from wool as it is a natural material, it does not provide a breeding ground for bacteria or dust mites meaning it will not encourage allergies.

    Choosing something as simple as bedding can become problematic. Skin irritation for children can be caused by material fabrics to what washing powder you use. Things like rugs for toddlers and smaller children will need to be shed proof, as fibres can be swallowed by infants.

    We hope these top tips for your childrens bedroom have been useful. Let us know if you have any other suggestions.

  • 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.

    If you are looking for even more inspiration and wish to get a little more adventurous with the decorating and furniture options check out our post on turning your kids room into an adventure playroom!

     

  • Childrens Cabin Beds and Midsleepers to Turn Kids Bedrooms into an Adventure Playroom

    Planning to get creative with decorating your kids’ bedroom? At the Children’s Bed Shop we welcome playful and artistic ideas to incorporate into your child’s bedroom. You may wish to consider several things when decorating children’s bedrooms such as creating a theme, accessorising the room and adding fun storage options.

    You might want to look at childrens cabin beds or mid sleeper beds to house all their toys and utilise the space in the most efficient way possible. Determining the colour and style of the bed is also important in order to fit with your chosen theme and all your storage needs. Making your child’s room a creative and playful space should not be overlooked either so turning their room into an adventure is probably a great idea to keep them excited!

    We have put together some tips on turning your kids bedroom into an adventure playroom to satisfy their wild imaginations as well as cater to all your needs in keeping the room neat and tidy!

    Choose a theme

    As well as this short guide, you could also browse the internet or look for inspiration in magazines to get ideas for a theme for your kids bedrooms. You could make it a gender theme and colour coordinate it to traditional blues and pinks, or you might choose a princess style room or create a Jurassic Park dinosaur scene.

    How big is the bedroom?

    Considering the size of the bedroom before implementing your ideas is extremely important. Think about the colours you choose and any feature walls you may wish to add. Be mindful in opening the space so stick to one wall if you opt for wallpaper or bold and bright colours. We also recommend wall stickers to add characters to your kids bedroom, again don’t go overboard as you don’t want to make the space chaotic!

    Accessorise the space

    If you are a little scared of splashing colour over the walls you may want to add some accessories instead. Adding personal touches in the form of cushions, toys and lamps can truly bring their room to life. These finishing touches are often inexpensive too. Try things like hanging mobiles or colourful ornaments. Little girls often like butterfly or heart lights to light up bedtime reading. We have a range of childrens bedroom accessories available from toy boxes to desks, tables and chairs.

    Creative storage options

    When you are a child you can never have too many toys or books or game but storing all these things can soon become a problem. It’s time to get creative with your storage options. There is a range of childrens storage units for you to match with their bedroom furniture and add some adventure into their room. Try a pirate treasure chest or a beauty bar dressing table. Try and avoid throwing everything under the bed or in the wardrobe. If you are opting for kids cabin beds, then you may want to choose cabin beds or mid sleepers with storage.

    Incorporate feature walls

    Finally, think about incorporating a feature wall. There are so many choices of wallpaper for kids these days. Why not customise your wallpaper, you could even have a family photograph from Disneyland blown up to remind them of their magical time with their favourite Disney characters?

    We hope this mini guide on adding some adventure into your child’s room has been useful. Check out our other post on ideas about how to get your kids bedroom ready for spring.

At this time of year, it’s when we all start getting the tools and paint brushes out to attempt some DIY… if this year you’re focusing on the kid's bedrooms our cabin bed range from Julian Bowen is a great place to start for some inspiration.

    The little ones will get all excited knowing they’re getting their room decorated and no doubt have some crazy ideas for colours and themes which we all know if we went ahead with they’d be bored of it within a matter of weeks!

    This time of year it’s good to splash some colour and bring the bright vibes to life. Pastel colours are always a winner in our eyes, they’re neutral colours which can be suitable for all year round and of course, they’re not anything too bright and luminous that are going to give you a constant headache when cleaning the kid's rooms.

    If you’re looking to keep the walls a basic colour why not look at having one feature wall with gorgeous floral paintings, this way the spring and summer season will always be present in your life so when the weather does get miserable outside your children will still have something to brighten their mood and will be happy to play inside.

That’s where our cabin bed range can come in useful, not only does it provide a luxurious bed for the little ones but they come with plenty of built-in storage. If you find one of our cabin beds isn’t exactly what you’re looking for then our Julian Bowen Midsleeper might be the ideal alternative.

    Although it doesn’t come with built-in drawers it does have plenty of space under the bed due to it being a midsleeper, this way you’ve got space to fill with drawers and storage units which you can choose.Be Spring Ready with Children’s Bed Shop

  • Ways to Help your Child Unwind Before Bed

    We all live pretty hectic lives in terms of juggling the school run, extra-curricular activities, holding down a job and running a household before tucking the little ones into their highsleeper bed. Often, we push our bodies to their limits cramming too much into our days, which results in us feeling tired and defeated when it comes to bedtime.

    As part of a good night’s rest, it’s important to take some time to unwind and relax before bed and don’t just encourage your children to do this, take some time for yourself too (if there are enough hours left in the day).

    We’ve put together some tips to help your children relax and wind down before bedtime…

    Our top relaxation tips A healthy bedtime routine will help promote a good sleep pattern for your little ones. By implementing relaxing things into a bedtime regime and doing them at the same time each night will aid their sleeping. Try a warm bath before they jump into their PJs (preheated on the radiator, of course) ready for story time. Reading a bedtime story together is also a great way to relax your child before they drift off to sleep. Also, remember to keep lights dim as this will enhance children’s hormones produced in their sleep. Meditation or relaxing breathing exercises are also a useful way to calm the mind before catching those all-important zzz’s.

    Turn off all technology It is always a good idea to limit your child’s use of electronic equipment and screens throughout the day and especially at night time as smartphones, tablets and televisions can affect how quickly a child will fall asleep. Try limiting all screen and electronic devices to before the bedtime routine or at least an hour before they go to sleep.

    Your child's bedroom Again, keeping your child’s bedroom dimly lit or dark is a must when settling them for the night. Making sure their rooms are clean and tidy will also help to declutter the mind and getting them to tidy up can also be a great way to tire them out (win, win). In the warmer months, be sure to keep their rooms well ventilated as a stuffy room can agitate their sleep often making children feel unsettled. Utilising the bedroom space allows for the room to appear lighter and more spacious, invest in a Julian Bowen highsleeper providing you with a comfortable bed and multiple options for storage.

    Tweens also need sleep Tweens tend to enjoy long lie-ins and an even longer time in front of the laptop or TV. Teenagers’ body clocks are set later than children’s, studies actually back your teens in terms of them being able to stay up later. It seems they can also rise later too which is apparent when the alarm goes off for school! Encourage your tweens to refrain from being a tired, miserable adolescent and work on regulating their body clocks. Avoid lie-ins on the weekend and use a family trip as an excuse to reintroduce them to daylight – we’re sure they’ll thank you for it in the long run!

    Hopefully, this post has provided you with some ideas to revamp your current bedtime routine and give your child the chance to unwind before curling up in bed. If you’re looking for a highsleeper bed or any bed for your children’s room take a look at our range of beds here.

  • Utilising the Space in Children’s Bedrooms

    Sometimes we struggle for space when it comes to our children’s bedrooms. This can pose a real problem when it comes to redecorating. Luckily there are ways we can utilise a small space and bring their bedrooms to life, with the Julian Bowen Pegasus High Sleeper Bed for example. It is important for our little ones to have a bright and uncluttered room to do their homework and play when the weather isn’t so great outdoors.

     With a little bit of thought and inspiration from this post, you should be able to turn the ‘box room’ that doesn’t fit anything into a wonderful, fun and organised space for your child to play and kick back and relax after a long day at school, once the homework is complete of course.

    Multi-use bedroom furniture

     It is important to open up the small space as much as you can to avoid the room feeling cluttered and slightly overbearing. A smaller wardrobe with a split chest of drawer’s section is perfect for children’s clothes as they don’t tend to take up as much space. Double up with the use for a cosy armchair, it can be a great addition to a desk for doing their homework but also great for story time before bed.

     The most important piece of furniture in any bedroom is, of course, the bed. And choosing the right bed for a small bedroom is crucial when it comes to utilising space. The Julian Bowen Pegasus High Sleeper Bed is the ultimate multi-use piece of bedroom furniture for children of all ages. The Pegasus High sleeper is both practical and timeless in design. A bed such as this with pull-out wardrobe feature and integrated storage drawers would be perfect for this type of room. Complete with working desk and even more storage options a high sleeper is ideal for your children’s bedroom.

    Colour scheme

     When it comes to colour scheme perhaps a more neutral option is better suited to a small space. A lot of bold colours can sometimes make a smaller room appear more cluttered. A slightly subtler tone of paint can make the bedroom appear much bigger than it actually is. Keep it clean, keep it streamlined and add a few exciting touches here and there to still give a little character. Some random bursts of colour such as cushions and soft fleecy blankets will finish the compact look keeping it fun for your little one.

     Limit wallpaper and accessories

     It is worth mentioning not to go overboard with the accessories as there are subtle hints of colour and then there’s brightly piles of clutter everywhere. Instead of scattering cushions, rug and blankets, why not opt for a statement wall and add a coloured and patterned printed wallpaper. Just to clarify, only buy paper for one wall, as you don’t want to close the space up again. Alternatively, bold bed linen could be an option. Afterall it will be easier to change when they get bored than scraping a whole wall of paper.

    Hopefully, this post has helped you with ways to utilise your children’s bedroom space, check out our full range of Julian Bowen beds here.

  • Managing the Children's Holiday Hype

    The holidays are a time for celebrations with family and friends. Creating memories with loved ones is the best, however, this busy period can sometimes bring about unnecessary stress, especially for parents. Managing the children’s holiday hype can be challenging even if everything was ticked off your list months in advance. It’s still difficult to prepare for the random outbursts when they don’t wish to share their new games console or refuse to eat their sprouts in front of the family member that is forever criticising your parenting decisions. Children sometimes act out when faced with an audience of relatives you haven’t seen since the last festive gathering, add that to the heaps of sugar from all the Christmas sweets and exhausted energy levels from playing with their new gadgets and you have the ‘crazy holiday hype’ all parents dread. Once their new year’s bedroom is revealed they might be excited to spend time in their new Steens bed, but be careful what they wish for if they end up on Santa’s naughty list…steens sleeperThe holiday season does not have to be perfect

    So, your children act a little crazier around Christmas – it’s the holidays, who cares? What the relative's witness during this time of year is just a fraction of a much bigger picture. If you put some rules in place and have certain expectations in mind, you just need to remind yourself that the holiday season does not have to be perfect and some unexpected behaviour can be managed.

    What to do if a tantrum does happen

    Take a deep breath. When tantrums happen parents often feel tremendous pressure to make it stop. Stay calm and remember to ignore everyone else and listen to what your child needs. However, do not reward tantrums but giving into your child for the sake of an easier life. Encourage your little one to also take a deep breath, alternatively try putting them on a chair for a time out.  Perhaps investing in a new bedroom accessory isn’t such a bad idea. And if the chair doesn’t work you can put their new Steens bed to use and provide them with an early bedtime.Keep them occupied

    Keeping children occupied during Christmas is an activity where you will not fall short. The holidays are about spending time with family so why not incorporate games, quizzes and giant jigsaw’s into spending time with the little ones. Be tactful when choosing presents, a large trough of Lego might be a good idea to get the family involved in building something together.

    Leading up to the holidays

    Why not channel the extra excitement fuelled by this time of year and find ways to keep children occupied whilst you prepare for the busy season ahead? If you’re one for only letting them decorate the back of the tree, then maybe allow the kids to make some decorations of their own to hang in their bedroom. This is a creative way to occupy them whilst you wrap presents or make dinner. Perhaps make Christmas paper chains to hang on their new Steens bed to keep the Christmas feel going.Hopefully, this post has reassured you that the holidays do not have to be as hectic as you may think, and we wish you all a very Happy Christmas!
