Parents use bunk beds for kids to let one room for two persons together. There are pros and cons about this matter. If you have two kids, six and eight years old, having bunk bed is not a problem. Several matters should be considered when putting this kind of bed for kids.
Major concern about this bed is safety measure. Actually, bunk bed is used to optimize room where no space to use normal mattress. This bed can be found in army garrison, ship, dormitories, etc. They are for adult, so the design is very different to the kid version.
You may think bunk beds for children bedroom is small version of adult. It might be true, but there are some adjustments to keep safety at the top priority. To make sure that kid cannot fall from above, high safety rail will cover around bed perimeter. This guardrail is also available in both top and below section.
Another consideration regarding safety measures is material. For kids, bunk beds need to be free from unhealthy component such as corrosive stain. If you use steel or metal, bunk beds should come under strict inspection before they are ready to use. The material should be strong to handle unwanted event during sleeping time.
Moreover, although the material is strong enough, you should still check the frame and construction of bunk beds for kids. Safety rail will cover perimeter, not integrate the structure. The top part has to be very strong and cannot afford to fall down which create severe damages.
This bunk bed consists of four pillar and ladder to help kids reach to section. As parent, you need to check the height of this bed. Children might be safe when sleeping at top as long as they do not climb and go down after sleeping.
Based on regulation, kids with age under six years old are prohibited to sleep at the top part. However, it does not mean you let them sleep at the lower section. Well, bunk beds for kids are good for those with the age over seven or eight.
Make the most of the space in a small bedroom with a fitted wardrobe with sliding doors. This style of doors means you won’t need to factor in space to open the doors in your room. Use the extra space to indulge in an odds and ends chair. Just make sure the wardrobe isn’t too tight a squeeze. You want to have enough space so you can still step back to see your whole collection of clothes.
If you don’t have enough floor space for a wardrobe, look around the room for any unused alcoves that could be transformed into hanging space. In this bedroom, instead of wasting the space above the bedside table alcove, it has been transformed into a floating wardrobe. Turning the clothes rail around maximises the space.
Hanging space is great for dresses and suits, but isn’t a very economical use of space. Choosing a freestanding wardrobe with shelves and drawers will help you fit more items into a smaller space. While shelves have their place for storing shoes and handbags, if you are a fan of the Marie Kondo method of folding, drawers are perfect for being able to see any items that don’t need hanging up.
Avoid fighting with your partner over wardrobe space by investing in two matching wardrobes. These can be free-standing or fitted like in this bedroom where they frame the bed. Keeping them separated by a bed, dressing table or book shelf will add symmetry to your room and make sure you don’t find your partner’s shoe collection sneaking into your storage space.
A free-standing wardrobe should sit among other storage solutions in a bedroom. A matching peg rail will provide space to hang towels or plan outfits. Baskets on top of a wardrobe are the perfect place to store accessories or spare bedding. Matching each storage solution to your wardrobe will create a cohesive look that keeps your bedroom looking neat and tidy, no matter how many clothes you own.
