How to get the most out of your child’s bedroom

When it comes to a kid’s bedroom you must make sure that you have enough room for them to play in and also the room should grow and change as your children do. It is important that your kid’s bedroom is as useful as possible. If your kids have a very limited amount of floor in their room the last thing you want is to have clothes and toys all over it. It is important to make sure that it is a room that has what it needs.

A great way to make the most of space is to look at it a little more vertical rather than horizontal. For this a loft bed would be a great solution. It is a very functional and cost effective piece of furniture. Bulk beds are along the same idea. It is about making the most of the inches of floor space whether that is a bunk bed that has one bed on top of another or a bed that is above a set of drawers. There are even beds that are above a wardrobe and desk giving the kid room to study as well as a place for their clothes with their bed above. This can be cost effective as there is no need to buy three different pieces of furniture.

If you decide to go down the loft bed or bunk bed then there are a number of factors you need to think about. The safety issue is top of the list with the problem being the height. It is a good option but you may have to wait for the eldest to be old enough to go into the top bunk. It is important that they are old enough to be able to climb both in and out of the top bunk. You will need to be confident that the top guard rail is enough to keep your child safe. When it comes to your children you have to be totally sure that they will be safe when getting in and out of the bed.

Another option similar to the bunk bed or loft bed is the trundle bed. This is where one bed is basically pushed under the other. This can be good even if you are just having friends round to stay the night. It can be a great space saver for those who are really short of space and on a budget. In some trundle beds the bed that comes out from under the bed can be raised to the same height effectively creating a double bed. If you like you can remove the second mattress and use it for storage.

Once your kids grows up you can change the bed to a normal wooden framed bed with open space beneath the bed. Get a number of storage units that fit perfectly under the bed. That will maximise the storage of your child’s bedroom. As your children do grow you will also need to be more creative with the storage units as well such as wardrobes, drawer chests and ottomans.

Finally the last way to maximise space in your child’s bedroom is to make sure you are using every inch. To do this it is best to find the furniture that fits in leaving no gaps. There are now items of furniture like tall thin chest of drawers and wardrobes with drawers at the bottom. With the introduction of the internet there are now a huge number of companies you can buy from selling a huge range of products giving you the chance to buy the perfect items for the room in question. Following these steps can help you really make the most of your child’s room giving you the space that is needed while saving you a fortune.
