Beds – bunks and cabins

Bunks and cabins are some of the most popular styles when it comes to children’s beds.

Children love beds that give them a private space of their own. Whether they cover their beds in soft toys or read under the cover by the light of a torch, a child’s bed should be a safe, secure, personal place.

Children also love the sense of adventure and excitement that comes from climbing up a ladder to bed at night. That’s just one of the many reasons that bunk and cabin beds are so popular.

Bunk beds

Bunk beds offer parents and children the benefits of space-saving design and flexibility. Taking up the floor space of a single bed, but providing sleeping spaces for two, bunk beds are ideal for children who share a room, or for families where the children of one partner come to stay at weekends or in the holidays. In many cases, bunk beds can also split down into two single beds, which can be pushed together to form a double bed, ideal for visiting grandparents, other relatives or family.

Cabin beds

Cabin beds are a fairly new entrant to the children’s bed market. Also known as midsleepers, the bed itself isn’t as high as a top bunk bed, but is usually still accessed by a small ladder or steps. The space underneath these cabin beds can be used for a variety of purposes. For younger children, designers have added curtains around the bed to form a den or hiding place, which can also serve as a great storage place for toys and games. For older kids, the space is filled with drawers, bookshelves and pull-out desks to provide additional storage – essential in a compact bedroom. Some cabin beds also include an additional single bed that can pull out for sleepovers.

Both cabin beds and bunk beds are popular choices with children and parents alike. Along with highsleepers – a high bunk bed with more storage underneath, these beds can be seen in many children’s rooms across the country.
