We all like a bit of flexibility in our lives and kids’ bedroom furniture is no exception. Children grow, families move and spaces change, which is why this range of Danish-designed beds makes sense.
Tasteful aesthetics, great functionality and quality craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Scandinavian design, and Lifetime Kidsrooms’ furniture (available in Singapore exclusively at Kühl Home) offers exactly that. We take a look at some of their best-selling kids’ beds and the reasons they are such a hit.
#1 Basic Bed
For many, expat life means a regular change of address. Whether it’s a move across town or to a whole new time zone, not knowing what kind of home you’ll be living in can be frustrating when it comes to buying big ticket furniture. The simple but stylish kids’ Basic Bed is a blank canvas that can be accessorised to fit any space. It’s easy to disassemble and can also be converted into many other models, such as the semi-high or high-rise sleeper bed.
#2 Family Bunk Bed
This one has an extra wide bottom bunk, which means either two kids or one adult can comfortably get a good nights’ sleep on the lower bed while another child snoozes away up top. A perfect set-up for bedroom-sharing siblings, sleepovers and bedtime story snuggles, this flexible bunk bed gives you space to spare – and share!
#3 Teenager Bed
There’s a clue is in the brand’s name: this is furniture that’s built to last. The flexible, durable designs are brought to life with eco-friendly materials including slow-grown, sustainable pine, environmentally friendly varnishes and non-toxic paints; they’re safe, sustainable and solid, and they stand the test of time and grow with your child. The Teenager Bed is a wider version of the Basic Bed. With lots of customisable options, it has plenty of room for growing limbs and changing tastes as your teen grows into adulthood.
#4 Corner Bunk Bed
Bunk beds are always a great space saver, but this Corner Bunk Bed takes it one step further. The perpendicular design makes clever use of the corner space and leaves the lower bed feeling more spacious. It is also great for rooms with lower ceilings; plus your kids can see each other more easily.
#5 4in1 Bed
The 4in1 Bed is exactly that: a bed that can be converted into four versions, each suited to a different phase of your child’s life. The journey begins low to the ground, with easy entry and a safety rail, perfect for ages two to four. Next up is five- to seven-year-olds with a slightly elevated bed for more independent sleepers. A handy trundle bed or storage drawer can also be added at this point. The next phase takes on ages seven to ten. Bumping up the bed even higher makes them feel more grown up and leaves plenty of space below for play or storage. Finally, they come back down to earth as adolescents. Phase four is perfect for eleven-plus years with a simple single that can easily be accessorised. A bed drawer adds extra storage, or a trundle bed is perfect for sleepovers.
#6 Silversparkle Bed
While the whole kids’ bedroom range effuses Scandi cool, the Silversparkle Bed is a stand out. One of the store’s most popular designs to date, it can be either an elevated loft bed or an on-the-ground hut, both of which create a perfect girly hideaway. The pretty Wendy House-style features a roof made of wood and add-on delicate organza decorated with hand-embroidered details, flowers and shiny pearls.
#7 Hangout Bed
Like the Silversparkle, the Hangout Bed creates a private space for kids to play, read or relax in style. The play area can be at the bottom or the top, but whatever setup you choose, there’s plenty of room for adventure once their imagination gets going. A fairytale castle, a pirate ship or a secret cave, the Hangout Bed is a child’s domain … no parents allowed!
