Choosing a bed in the nursery

A child, just like an adult, needs a healthy, sound sleep. Therefore, a comfortable and practical bed is what you need to rest before discovering and experiencing the new day. And in this article we will find out how to avoid mistakes when choosing a bed for the children's room.

When the question of choosing a bed for the children's room arises, parents often give preference to a sofa bed, assuming that it will be comfortable for the child to sleep there. In fact, a folding sofa is not as good an option as it seems at first glance. Since it is intended, primarily, to sit, not to sleep, and sleep on such furniture can be very uncomfortable. If the size of the room allows, it is still better to give preference to a full bed with a comfortable mattress. And if the room is small, you can place the bed along the wall — so it will not interfere with anyone.

When buying furniture, be sure to consider the age of the child. If he is 7-9 years old, it is better to buy a model "to grow out" (approximately 1.9-2 meters long). It is not recommended to put high beds in a child's room: a child can fall or roll off the mattress. It is necessary to choose the best sleeping place, which is suitable in terms of growth and will be safe. If the child is 12 and older, then the best solution is to ask them what they want. At this age, a young person's worldview is formed, so that participation in such a "grown-up" matter, such as furnishing the room, will make the room as comfortable as possible, and it will also strengthen your relationship in the family.

Also, in addition to the taste preferences of the child to take into account the overall style of the room — it prompts the choice of bed in the nursery in terms of design. Based on this, you can already decide — will the design of the bed have a system for storing things, to pick up the bed with a rigid monolithic frame or better on legs.

If you have two children, then it would be logical to put a bunk bed. But in this case, the main clue and reference point will be space. If you can rationally organize the available square meters, it is better to think about the presence of personal areas for children. For a nursery with a small area, the best solution is a transformer bed.

An interesting and quite popular option in recent times — both for children and adults (for example, students) — would be a bunk design, where the bottom is a work space and the top is a place to rest. If you have chosen this solution, it is better to think about the lighting of the working area and how to fit this "corner" in the space. For this, the house should have high ceilings, so that the child does not hurt his head when coming down from the bed.
