Everything you should consider when shopping for a stylish cabin bed for a child's small room
What is a cabin bed?
The Kids Pilot cabin bed shown above from Amazon, for example, includes a bedside table that doubles up as a desk when a chair is pulled up to it, a bookshelf and a step to make it easy to access the sleeping area safely.
What age are cabin beds suitable for?
The Lifetime Beach House cabin bed, shown above, comes with railings that should stop any restless sleepers from taking a wrong turn and tumbling on to the floor in the night. The steps leading to the sleeping platform also make it easy to climb in and out of. It has useful storage drawers and display space beneath it too, plus a fun roof shape above, so that kids can use it as a play space as well.
A cabin bed with play space
A side pocket, as shown above, is also useful for holding books and other items children may want by their bedside at night.
Before investing in a themed play bed, however, think about whether the play tent or perhaps the roof above the sleeping area can be removed once your child is no longer enchanted by imaginary play. You want a bed that will last them into secondary school.
