Kids Rooms: Beds

I went back and forth when trying to decide what type of bed to get our daughter. We ended up opting for a double – which seemed seriously extravagant at the time, but I admit I’m so happy we did. I love getting to lie with her at night before she goes to bed. I still haven’t decided what type of headboard to make, but that will come. Whether you go this route or choose a toddler bed or even something built-in, there are so many options for kids rooms. Maybe too many!

Below: Ubabub’s Nifty bed is another option designed for kids, but suited for any room. The Australian company markets their products as being ultra-safe, durable, and eco-friendly. Their products aren’t yet available internationally, but it sounds like they might be soon.

Below: Italian company Nume makes beautiful and unique products for kids. I’ve featured their toddler bed before, but here it is again along with a seriously fun canopy.

Below: You really can’t go wrong with Ikea for a kids room. The Malm bed does the trick quite nicely – it’s modern, simple, and the price is definitely right.

While I would choose straight lines for a headboard for my room, I’m likely going to add some detail for my daughter’s room. Here are some bits of inspiration:
