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!

There are plenty of reasons why you might be considering getting a new bed. When you’re shopping for your children, it may because you’ve decided that their old bed is too old and lumpy to really help them get a great night’s sleep. Or maybe you have noticed that your child’s feet are sticking off the end of their mattress. As your children grow, it’s perfectly normal to update their mattress to accommodate their new size. If you’re shopping for yourself, maybe you are indulging in the new space that you have now that you’re in a bigger apartment or house and celebrating with a bed that better matches your space and your needs. Whatever your reasons, you have a lot of options to choose from, including full size, queen and king. If you’re looking for a bed that is versatile, why not consider a full-size bed?

A full-size bed is the step between a twin size and a queen size bed. A standard full-size measures in at a little more than size feet long and a little over four feet wide, making it more than a food wider than the twin. This size difference is perfect for kids that are growing out of their twin-size mattress and need more room. It also makes it ideal for an adult that needs more room than a twin will provide; it’s the perfect size to be able to spread out and be comfortable, as long as you’re not too tall for the mattress. But a full size also doesn’t take up as much room as queen or a king mattress, meaning that you can fit it into nearly any space. If you have a room that is at least ten by twelve feet, you have the space to fit in a comfortable twin mattress with plenty of room to fit your other essentials.

When you’re trying to decide on the right bed for your space, needs and lifestyle, it’s also important to think about the practicalities. It’s going to be more difficult to find bedding and accessories for an Olympic queen bed or a California king bed than it will be to accommodate a full. Full size is a standard size and sheets, comforters and sets are going to be available in any store that sells bedding, meaning you can choose between a wide range of styles, colors and materials. Find the bed that’s right for you!

Getting to create a new bedroom is thrilling. Whether you have decided to do a little redecorating in your current home or you are moving into a brand-new home, deciding that you are going to decorate the room where you do all of your sleeping, most of your getting ready and a fair amount of your resting and relaxing at the end of a long day can be both exhilarating and also daunting. Many of us have specific ideas on the colors that will help us get the best rest, from the wall color to the rugs to the drapery and beyond. Some of us even have an idea of the style that soothes us the most, whether that’s rustic, vintage, modern or mid-century. But one thing that we don’t often know for sure while we’re planning is what kind of bed frame while best complement our space as well as our color and décor choices. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the elements that you can customize to assemble the perfect queen bed frame for your new space.

When deciding on the perfect queen bed frame, the first thing that you will want to consider is the space that you have in your room, since this will help to inform what size bed frame you have room for. For maximum space saving, you will want to consider a standard or platform bed; neither of these bed frames come with a headboard or footboard, giving you a huge amount of versatility when it comes to putting it on any wall and in any part of the room, even below windows. A folding frame is also ideal for saving space but also gives you the added benefit of turning your bed into a space to sit, which is convenient when you’re using your bedroom as your main living space. Need to get that bed up and out of the way? A murphy bed frame lets you fold the bed neatly up against the wall when its not in use, meaning you can use the space for other things.

But if you have the space for a more decorative frame, a panel or sleigh bed frame is ideal for adding to your décor. You can choose between natural materials like wood or wicker in a wide variety of styles, or you can opt for modern, durable metal frames. An upholstered headboard is also perfect for softening up the space and it can be matched to other furniture in the room or house. Enjoy assembling the perfect bed for your home!
