Since children are often the littlest people in our homes, it stands to reason that their rooms are often the smallest. While this is perfectly logical thinking, it can make things a bit tricky when it comes to decorating.
If you’re working with a small space (and, let’s face it, most of us are!), fitting in all the furniture your child needs isn’t always easy. Which is where day beds come in; practical, attractive, and versatile, a new day bed might just be the answer to your decorating problems. Here’s why:
Here at Room to Grow HQ we can’t get enough of multi-use furniture, and day beds are up there when it comes to functionality. Traditionally used as a temporary sleeping option for guests, day beds are becoming ever more popular in children’s bedrooms for their ability to offer both a sofa and a bed in one small footprint.
Contrary to popular opinion, this switcheroo doesn’t require lots of making and remaking either; simply toss on a few throw cushions to turn the bed into a comfy settee, a la this Stompa CK white day bed.
They’re great for extra storage
Even if your child’s bedroom isn’t tiny, everyone can always do with more storage space to keep all those toys off the floor! Day beds’ raised frames make them perfect for including underbed storage. How you make use of this space is totally up to you, slide in your own boxes or opt for a frame with built in storage like this Maine single day bed with underbed drawers.
One of the best things about day beds is that they’re totally versatile. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colours as well as prices to suit all budgets, from stylish and affordable like this Solitaire day bed to gorgeous high end designs like this Nordic Playhouse bed.
The space available underneath a day bed can also be put to all sorts of uses, from storage as we mentioned before, to pull out trundle beds that are perfect for sleepovers. Or, even better, get both all-in-one, like in this Flexa Nordic day bed.
