After setting up our very own bus bunk bed at our Lowther Rd showroom we've been inspired to look for more amazing beds for children. Adding a bed with a theme or unique feature can really add to the fun of a room and spark some imagination and creative play in kids. These bed sets are wildly fantastical and any child would be incredibly lucky to have them. We've chosen a few ready to buy beds and some DIY options for those who like to get a bit creative themselves.
By far the grandest of our selection (and ridiculously pricey) this castle bed set inspired by the Disney hit Frozen is amazing! It is still such a popular movie that the merchandise and 'Let it go' singing is still strong even though it was released a year and a half ago! This is such a fun Frozen bed with lots of exciting things about it. It can sleep two or a extra special one, has a stair set up to the upper level and a slide on the other side to get down. It has extra shelves on the front perfect for favourite toys and books.
This Pirate boat bed from little devils is another one you can buy but at a more reasonable price then the frozen castle. The MDF bed is coated in melamine to make easy to clean and resist chipping. It features a ships wheel at the front and a sail at the head board so there is plenty of fun to be had when friends are over. Although you'd think that having a specific theme for a bed means only one story can be played out i'm sure the imagination of youth can think of lots of swash buckling ideas around this amazing piece of furniture.
A simple house bunk bed design is a great way to add some excitement to bedtime without the cost of a themed bought bed. This simple design from This Modern Life blog was made from scratch and has built in storage cabinets at the side which doubles as the steps to the upper bunk. For an easier build we can imagine that ready made bunk beds could be transformed into a house simply by attaching a MDF house shape to the front of the bunk. A cheap and easy solution for an instant update
For the more adventurous this rock climbing wall attached to the side of a bed can make for a unique play area and gives little ones a chance for a bit of extra exercise in the day. This basic wall from Finch Found looks great. they said it was easy to make using just a wood sheet and rock climbing mounts which were inexpensive and easy to install. The climbing wall is attached to one side of the bunk bed and the other side has a spiralled step step for easier access. We think this is a great option for super active kids, the perfect way to tire them out before bedtime.
Last but not least, of course our favourite is the bus bunk bed we have on display at our Lowther Rd showroom. The picture above is the brilliant children's bed in situ and it's already been getting lots of attention in store and online. This simple but well designed bed features a red bus painted structure with London Bond St written on the side and front, a steering wheel in the lower bunk and window cut outs to add to the bus theme. There are sturdy ladders on one side to reach the top bunk (deck) of the bus, the perfect place to view the sights and sounds of 'London' on your kids next bus tour. There are countless ideas for the kids to play with here and it quite reminds of the TV show Playdays on BBC
Get out there and play!
