As you might expect from the name, one of the biggest parts of bedroom decor is the bed. Depending on the style of bed and bedding your choose, your kids’ room can be anything from a palace sleeping chamber fit for a prince or princess to an exciting place where kids dream about undersea adventures. That’s probably why both boys and girls love their bed and usually have their favorite sheet sets too. As a parent, you’re probably looking for two things when selecting a bed: something that makes your children happy and a high-quality piece that gets the job done and lasts a long time. At Pottery Barn Kids, we help you with both. Our selection includes a lot of different types of beds. What are the advantages of storage beds?
From a practical point of view, storage beds are popular with both parents and children. What makes them stand out right away is their extra space. Everyone has a lot of possessions, and kids are no exception. As they grow, so does their collection of toys, clothing and odds and ends. So even if their bedroom has a large dresser and a closet complete with covered containers, more storage is always welcome.
Having enough space for everything in your kids’ bedroom also makes keeping it clean is a lot easier. When they’re old enough to put away their own toys, knowing exactly where things go lets them get in on the action. And that frees you up for other important tasks or to relish some personal time soaking in a bubble bath. Open storage bins are another great idea for kids. They can toss their dirty clothes inside no problem when they get home from school.
What kind of things can you keep in the drawers of a storage bed? That depends a lot on the age of your kids and your personal preferences. One option is to store stuff your kids use often, like underwear, jeans and shirts. Keeping their toys here lets children get at them without problems. Another idea is to reserve the area for seasonal items and bedding. That way it takes you less time to change covers, and extra blankets are always close by if little ones get cold late at night.
Storage beds are also helpful in small spots. If your child’s bedroom doesn’t have a lot of extra room for a dresser, go with a storage bed. Most have from two to four – or sometimes more – drawers that run along the width of the bed. Whatever you normally would put in their dresser fits neatly underneath the bed. That way the bedroom feels as spacious as possible and provides kids with a place to play too.
Decorating the bedroom is easy with a storage bed. There are styles for every taste. For something modern, look for straight lines and simple shapes. If you’re looking for chic and elegant instead, focus on a headboard that has curves and lathed legs or bedposts. Natural wood tones are very warm and cozy for kids’ rooms. An all-white bed brightens up the space, adds an energetic vibe and makes small rooms feel bigger. A neutral finish like gray matches different bedding and wall colors effortlessly.
For a room with a couple of boys or girls, a storage bunk bed is very useful. Twice the kids means double the clothes and toys. But don't worry. With some additional storage, there’s space for everything and then some. That way getting dressed for school in the morning is quick. Both can have their own drawers set aside for clothes and supplies.
Loft systems take things even further to maximize floor space. They feature a full bed above and an open area underneath. Many include a desk in this spot where kids can do their homework, draw or have fun. Open shelves inside and out give you a place for folded clothes, books, homework and even a backpack ready and waiting to go. And there are drawers too for anything else your kids can imagine.
