After starting out life in 1996 as a little store in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, we have grown to be one of the UK’s leading specialists for sustainable and inspirational children’s bedrooms. As a mother to a young daughter at the time, I was excited to nurture Room to Grow into what it is today, and help parents just like me to create exciting, magical bedrooms for their children.
Knowing the store had limited space to showcase our wonderful beds, I took us online in 2012, and broadened our horizons outside of Yorkshire to the whole of the UK. It’s safe to say I have never looked back.
Being a parent too, I know the challenges of juggling the wants and desires of children, with the functionality and practicality you need from a bedroom, all while keeping an eye on the costs. With Room to Grow you can add a little sparkle to a room of any size, with space-saving, multi-functional pieces that encourage creativity and spark the imagination. I remember growing up in the ‘box room’ in the 80s and cramming all my childhood treasures under the bed, as there was nowhere else to put them! Thankfully we can offer a little more today.
For children, a bedroom isn’t just a place to sleep it’s so much more. A space to play, relax, study and explore in surroundings that are truly their own where they can be totally themselves. My mission for Room to Grow is to help you create fabulous bedrooms for your children, spaces that make them feel safe and secure, help them to develop and grow, and harness the confidence to become the amazing individuals they already are. After all, happy children means happy parents!
You can read a little bit more about how the team and I stick to our mission below, but for now, thanks for being here, and happy shopping!
Owner of Room to Grow
Our mission to be the UK leader in sustainable and inspirational children’s bedrooms is at the heart of everything we do, which means constantly making sure we have the following covered:
We only select furniture from sustainably sourced timber. It has to be FSC or PEFC certified. All packaging must be recyclable and we are working towards omitting all plastic and polystyrene packaging by 2023. The factories we work with are also making conscious efforts to reduce their carbon footprint as an ongoing priority.
All our beds comply with EU and British safety standards so you have peace of mind your child will be safe. Where possible we work with UK manufacturers that are approved by the National Bed Federation. The NBF is a leading, impartial authority on beds and mattresses. We offer a Room to Grow 2-year guarantee on all our beds and furniture. Some of our manufacturers extend this guarantee up to 5 years or even 10 years for some mattresses.
We work to constantly develop new, on-trend products. We know how important it is for children to have a bedroom that will encourage and inspire creativity. Working with the best manufacturers worldwide, we can bring new products, new styles and new colours to help you create a dream bedroom.
It is so important for children to socialise with their friends and build relationships; their bedroom space allows them to entertain friends, be independent and if at all possible, have sleepovers.
Whether that be a budding musician, a place to study, make crafts or for gaming, a space to nurture their talent, give them time to practice, learn and develop.
Give them a space of their own, surrounded by their possessions, in a style that reflects their personality. When they are proud of their bedroom it will help encourage them to look after their space and keep it tidy!
