When searching for kids beds, there are a lot of different kinds to choose from. For babies and infants there are bassinets and cribs. Bassinets are often times more comfortable for newborns as they are not used to being in open spaces. As babies get older they can then be moved to a crib. Some cribs can be converted, as the child grows, into a toddler bed and then to a full-sized bed. These kids beds will only need a new mattress once converted to a full-sized bed.
Toddler beds are another option in children’s beds. Toddler beds are fairly easy to assemble and are typically made to be used with a crib mattress so a new mattress does not need to be purchased. Toddler beds come in a wide variety of designs and colors, many with popular children’s characters on them which can help make the transition from crib to bed a little bit easier.
When looking for beds for kids that are sharing a room, bunk beds can be an excellent option. Many bunk beds can be stacked on top of each other in the usual way, or separated to make two twin beds. This way kids can share a room without having to share a bed. If space is limited, consider a trundle bed. This is a twin bed with another, slightly smaller bed underneath that rolls out when needed. When not in use it can simply be rolled back underneath the top bed. This is also great for sleepovers. If the bottom bed is not being used, remove the mattress for an instant storage drawer.
