  • Create the perfect playroom for your kids

    A playroom is a room solely dedicated to your child’s toys and learning materials. It is somewhere that your child can learn and develop while also having fun. It makes sense to have this room as something entirely separate to their bedroom, this way they will be able to differentiate from playtime and bedtime, and can have a well-rested snooze at the end of a hard day's play!

    Create the perfect playroom for your kids with steens kids furniture

    Here at Children’s Bed Shop, we’ve put our heads together and come up with a few different ways you can create the perfect playroom for your kids:

    Fill it with learning materials

    With most children, if you put too much emphasis on education they’re going to shy away from it eventually. However, if you let them find interests for themselves, then you’re less likely to get any backlash. If you include things like an atlas, reading materials & art supplies you may be surprised at what they take an interest in.

    Store away all those toys

    Just because there’s a room in your house that’s dedicated to play, it doesn’t mean that it should be a mess. We stock a wide variety of storage units you can choose from. Find a place to put all those toys and make sure your children clean up after themselves, giving them a sense of responsibility. After all: they’re their toys, not yours.

    Play some word games

    A great way to get your child into reading and storytelling from an early age is getting them interested in language. Including a magnetic wall with letter magnets can really help your child get a grasp on spelling. Another great idea for when they’re older is cutting up an old book of simple words and sentences, then putting all these component parts into a bucket – your child can create your own stories this way and fuel their creativity.

    Put those books on the shelves

    Childhood reading is crucial for early development, so make sure you have somewhere to put all those books instead of piling them up into a massive tower on the floor! Steens kids furniture has got you covered with their range of low & tall bookcases to suit any need – from a modest collection to a veritable library!

    Display their creativity

    If your child is interested in creating things (drawings, paintings, stories etc) be sure to give them a space where they can proudly display their creations. This will promote a real sense of achievement for your child as they can see everything they’ve created proudly displayed on the wall.

    Promote study time with a desk

    Getting your child a desk provides them with a designated place for study and somewhere to experiment and get creative with the pen and paper in their early years. This can lead to greater benefits later on in life when they reach school age. Our website features a number of desks by Steens, so you and your child can pick the perfect one.


  • The Benefits of Buying Children’s Bedroom Furniture Online

    Gami Montana Mezzanine Bed in Grey Oak

    Buying furniture can be somewhat stressful. More stressful still, is buying furniture for your child’s bedroom. You want them to feel like they have an opinion in what they’re getting, after all: it is their bedroom. However, after dragging them around furniture store after furniture store they often can’t be bothered and just want to go home.

    It’s a hard slog that leaves both you and your child frustrated. At Children’s Bed Shop, we recommend doing all your furniture shopping online. Here are a few reasons why we think you’d be better ditching the shops for the desktops.


    We can’t stress enough how much easier it is to do your shopping online. You are now able to shop around from site to site in a fraction of the time it would take to flit from shop to shop on the high street. No more wasted weekends dragging along a child that really doesn’t want to be there, do all your shopping online in the comfort of your own home.

    You can compare the prices of furniture on many different sites with relative ease, imagine the difficulty of undertaking this task in person. We offer a price match guarantee! Which means if you find an item cheaper elsewhere, we will happily review our selling price*.


    Many of us have experienced the horror of buying furniture in-store before realising that we have to fit it into our car to drive it home. You can save the long panic-ridden drive home wondering if something is going to fall out the boot, by ordering it online. We offer free delivery to the UK Mainland* on all our beds, mattresses, accessories and bedroom furniture.

    More choice

  • What to Consider When Buying a Midsleeper

    Choosing the right bed for your child can be time consuming with a wide range of fantastic beds available. There might be many factors to consider including your child’s age, size and space available. We’ve put together a few things you should think about before buying one of our favourites, the midsleeper.

    Steens For Kids Midsleeper in Solid Plain White

    What to Look For

    Think about the height of the bed. Children move out of cots at various ages, often into a cot-bed, smaller version of a standard single or a single bed. Some parents consider a midsleeper or cabin bed, which gives some extra height and generally incorporates storage beneath.

    A midsleeper is recommended for children of four or older. Alternatively, you might go straight for a high-sleeper, though they are not generally recommended for children under the age of six. Of course, these are guides, as all children are different.

    Safe as Houses

    Safety will be a big consideration. How the bed is constructed and how high are the safety barriers can be important factors. Will your child be comfortable with the steps or a ladder? Our midsleepers are a good height from the ground with only small ladders to climb.


    Consider the mattress height when you’re looking at the safety bars. The recommended height for a midsleeper mattress depth is 6 inches. This keeps the rail high and is safer for a child.


    Midsleepers are the perfect choice for children with small bedrooms. With different styles of storage on offer they give you the extra space you and your child needs. The storage options can be a chest of drawers, shelving, desk space or a cupboard. These are great for tidying away toys or keeping clothes neat.


    Midsleepers are also a great option for play. With space for a little one underneath the bed they can make the greatest adventures with their own imagination. If your child’s imagination needs a little help a Steens bed in the bedroom with their creative tent options will help them have fun all day.

    Many midsleepers will come flat-packed, so make sure you have space to put it together and someone to help you. It will be worth it in the end!

  • National Bed Month - 9 Beds your child will love

    Moving from a cot into a bed is a big step for any child, as is the move from a toddler bed into a bed more suitable for a growing boy or girl. Here we look at some great beds that both you and your children will love, whether they are going into a bed for the first time or are ready to move into a more 'grown up' bed as they get older.

    Single beds and low sleepers

    The Sweet Dreams Ruby White Single Bed is a perfect low sleeper for a younger boy or girl. It's plain white finish and the shaker style design of the headboard and footboard would suit any bedroom.

    An alternative low sleeper to a traditional single bed is a bed in a fun shape that doesn't look like a bed. Designs include princess carriages, diggers and cars, such as the Kidsaw Racing Car Single Bed. This fun bed in the shape of a car has been screen printed with the design of a car to make it more realistic and it is easy to assemble.

    Captains beds

    For slightly older children or for homes that are short on space, captains beds are the perfect solution. These include beds such as the Parisot Smoozy Compact Day Bed, which has drawers and shelves underneath that are perfect for storage.

    Alternatively, the Sweet Dreams Ruby White Captains Bed also features drawers and has a guest bed underneath.

    Cabin beds and mid sleepers

    Cabin beds and mid sleepers are suitable for children aged between 6 and 13 and usually incorporate storage or additional furniture items underneath. These beds are perfect for homes where space is at a premium. The Parisot Moby Midsleeper Cabin Bed includes not only a bed but also a desk that pulls out from underneath and integrated shelving.

    Alternatively, the Steens Memphis UK Mid Sleeper Bed provides a simple, solid white wooden bed frame with an integrated ladder. Play tents are also available in a variety of sizes, which fit underneath, at an additional cost.

    Loft beds including the Stompa Casa High Sleeper

    Loft beds or high sleepers are also most suited to older children and their distance from the ground provides ample space for storage or additional furniture underneath. The Stompa Casa High Sleeper is available in a whole range of different formats. There are beds featuring storage, sofas, desks and even additional beds, which means you can choose the style and items you want such as the Stompa Casa 9 High Sleeper Bed which gives you many different items of children's bedroom furniture all underneath a single bed.

    An alternative bed if your child is into technology is the Parisot Hashtag High Sleeper Bed. This bed set features USB charging points, space to mount a flat screen TV, and additional storage.

    Bunk beds

    If you have more than one child and they have to share a room, or if you are likely to have guests to stay and space is at a premium, bunk beds are a great solution. In addition to traditional bunk beds, there is now the option to buy triple sleepers such as the Birlea Nexus Triple Sleeper. These beds feature a metal frame with a double bed at the bottom and a single bed on top.


    Birlea Nexus Triple Sleeper Bunk Bed If your children's room needs bunk beds but you want something a little different, the Julian Bowen London Bus Bunk Bed could be what you need. This is a trendy and fun sleep solution for younger children, who will love the authentic London bus design.

  • Tips and Tricks to Getting Your Child to Sleep on Holiday

    Tips and Tricks to Getting Your Child to Sleep on Holiday

    Sleep challenges should not stand in the way of having a great holiday with your family. If you have worked really hard in getting your child into a good bedtime routine, you may be worried that a holiday could undo all of your good work. It can be difficult as a holiday can play havoc with your usual sleeping pattern, what with all of the exciting activities on offer for your child. Later nights are the number 1 problem area. We have put together our top tips to help ensure your child gets a good nights rest and they are ready for the exciting day ahead.


    1. Sleeping in a new surrounding may be a problem for your child. Make it as familiar as possible for them and take things from there room such as, teddies and blankets to make the environment feel comfortable as possible. Take something they love with them and reassure them they are safe.


    2. Take into consideration the lighting of the room. Does your child have a bedside light at home?  Plan ahead and if you are worried they may be scared of the dark either take a small night light with you or leave a dim light on within your accommodation.


    3. Try and travel early in the morning. The earlier you travel, it will be more likely that come dinner time your child will be more than ready to have a nap.  If you are lucky, some children may even sleep during travel. Peaceful!


    4. Try your best to keep the bedtime routine the same. For example, if at home you sit and talk to your child before bed, read them a story or enjoy a little cuddle then do the same while you are away. It gives them a feel of structure and it will remind them of being at home, the familiar, safe and comfortable place they know and love.


    5. If possible, take a blanket or pillowcase that smells like home. This sensation will allow your child to settle with the sense and comfort feeling of being tucked up in their own bed.

  • Kids Bedroom Storage to Decor: Decorating Your Child’s Bedroom

    kids bedroom storage

    From space and money saving solutions to kids bedroom storage, we have put together some top tips on how to decorate your child’s bedroom. This task can be a fun and challenging experience. With so many different designs and concepts to choose from, there is definitely something for all children whatever your budget.


    1. Set a Budget


    Before redesigning of your children’s bedroom, plan an affordable budget in which you can work too.   Consider this when choosing paint, furniture and accessories so you have a guideline to stick to. Checking out the sales is always a good place to start.


    If your budget is tight, let your creativity blossom by revamping old pieces of furniture. Visit local material stores for fresh designs which can be used to cover this furniture.  It will give your child a new, unique piece of furniture and they can enjoy making together with you.


    2. Get them involved

    Get your child involved with the change and show them different themes and ideas which would work well in their room. A child’s bedroom is their space and is much more than somewhere they sleep. It’s a place for them to play, study and should help with the dreaded task of getting them to bed.


    The style and design in which is chosen will reflect your child’s interests and personality. And once the room is finished, they will take pride in showing off their hard work!


    3. Invest in the long-term

    It is worth spending a little more to ensure your children's bedroom furniture is of a good quality. It is likely to be subjected to quite a bit of wear and tear so making sure it is sturdy enough is vital. Save money in the long run by opting for furniture that will last your children for several years.


    4. Plan the layout

    Experiment with the layout of your Child’s Room and rearrange the furniture! See what pieces fit best situated in other parts of the room. This can be very beneficial and can also be a great space saver!


    5. Make the most of the space

    Your child’s bedroom is probably one of the smallest in the house so selecting the right furniture is essential to avoid it feeling overcrowded. Multi-functional pieces such as a built-over or high sleeper bed with storage to avoid having to buy two separate piece of furniture such as this Steen’s highsleeper bed.  


    6. Be smart with kids bedroom storage

    Learning to keep their room tidy will be much more interesting for your kids if you put in some fun storage options. Baskets or trugs are great for storing toys while a colourful dresser or wardrobe will encourage them to put their clothes away. A bed with storage already built into it will provide somewhere to store items and avoiding taking up too much floor space.


    7. Keep it neutral

    Opt for a soothing neutral shade on the walls and add colour and interest with accessories such as bedding, rugs, curtains and pictures. This allows you to easily change the look of the room as your children grow older and their tastes change.


    8. Finishing Touches

    Why not add a personal touch to your child’s bedroom? Children love to be able to display their work proudly, so hang up any paintings they have created, pictures, or certificates they achieved in school.

  • Children’s Beds and How to Deal with Nightmares

    Nightmares are extremely common for children but there are things you can do to help them cope starting with your children's beds. Adults know that nightmares are not real but even then they can leave you feeling scared and upset. Imagine how a child must feel when they do not understand that the terrifyingly lifelike images they have experienced are simply a result of their imagination. Here's a few ways you can handle their nightmares.


    Ghostly Giggles in your Children’s Beds


    It can be tempting to laugh at your child's fear of the monster under their bed, the ghoul in the wardrobe or the cheese with legs that has been chasing them all night. It is important to remember that these things can seem very real to youngsters, however, and you don't want them to stop telling you about their fears. Instead, explain to your children that nightmares are just made-up things created by their brain and are not things that can ever hurt them.

    Children’s Beds

    If it’s monsters under the bed they are worried about, the Julian Bowen Stella Low-Sleeper Bed will show them the only thing under their bed is great storage place to make sure their room is always clean and tidy.  Encourage them to be brave, perhaps offering a treat if they manage to stay in bed all night. Just make sure they know you are nearby if they really need you and perhaps offer to keep checking on them regularly throughout the night.


    Banish the Darkness Fear


    Get out the torches and play games with your children in the dark. This will help them to understand that everything is still the same in their room even when the lights are off. It can also help explain how shadows are created, making them less frightening when they are alone. If your child is still worried, invest in a subtle night light to make them feel more secure like our Bendy Bunk Light. A teddy or blanket can also make them feel less alone and safer.

    Children’s Beds

    Monster Bashing


    Use your imagination to battle the effects of theirs by inventing creative ways to keep the monsters and bad dreams at bay. How about having your own monster repellent spray to use before bed or a magic pillow that will frighten ghosts away? If that doesn't work maybe sleeping in a fairytale Knight’s castle will give them a sense of security. This Steens For Kids Two Tone Midsleeper with Knight Accessories is high off the ground and includes a protective tunnel to shelter them from the figures of their imaginations.

    Children’s Beds

    Watch What You Watch


    Don't feed your child's imagination further by allowing them to watch scary films or listen to frightening stories. Even something youngsters see first thing in the morning can come back to haunt them late at night.
