There is no doubt that kids grow up fast. One minute you’re bringing them home from the hospital and the next they’re helping you to download the latest apps on your phone. As your kids grow up, it seems like their needs grow up with them. They need bigger clothes, bigger toys, even a bigger toothbrush. It can feel overwhelming to keep up with all of the things that they’re outgrowing but it can also be a fun process to share with them as they help you to decide on the new accessories that best fit your family’s budget, your home and your lifestyle. When it comes to expressing their own unique sense of style, their bedroom is one of the first places where they can start to really be independent and make choices about the things that they want to use every day. If they need a new bed, involve them in the process of choosing a new full-size bed frame that best meets their needs and also reflects their blossoming personality.
What kind of full-size bed frame is going to match your child’s needs? That’s up to them! The most basic kind of bed after a standard is the platform frame. A platform frame can have a headboard, a footboard, both or neither and comes in so many styles that your child is certain to find one that they are in love with, whether it’s metal, wood or wicker. Beyond a standard platform bed, though, you can shop for ones that come with all kinds of features that make it useful in a child’s room. If your kids love sleepovers, a platform bed with a trundle is perfect for making sure that best friends always have a place to sleep. Kids that need more storage for their toys or wardrobe will find a platform frame with drawers gives them plenty of new real estate.
Kids that are doubling up in a room that has less floor space will adore the usefulness of a bunk bed. You can find beds that are wood or hearty metal and that come with all of the safety features that kids need, including a high railing to keep them safe at night. If your kiddo just wants more space to play or a great place to put a desk for homework, a bunked bed with open space underneath is going to be ideal for keeping them happy. Let your children’s beds grow with them!
