Over time, the concept of a children’s bed has evolved from a simple twin mattress or loft, to a complete array of different shapes, sizes, patterns and constructions. Back in the day, kids didn’t have luxury or unique looking beds. A child’s bed consisted of a small mattress, which was in some cases tossed on a simple hand built wooden loft in order to conserve space. Later on, bunk beds climbed into the picture to, once again, conserve space and also to please the children.
Most kids were ecstatic at the idea that they could have bunk beds to share a room with a sibling or other family member and not have to share the same bed. And yet, while the mattress was not the most padded or comfortable as it could be, it was just the simple pleasure of having a bed of their own that put a sparkle in their eye. As time has elapsed, the need to conserve space is not such a dilemma anymore and companies have evolved their creations to bring appeal to the eye instead. While strolling down the aisle of any furniture store, nowadays, there are rows of children’s beds that all have a unique look to them.
Some of these beds have painted frames around them to make them look like a boat or a race-car, while others have huge canopies or framed enclosures to insinuate a castle, doll house, or pirate ship. The paint colour is perfected to make these beds appeal to the kids, as well as fit any room theme a parent is trying to achieve. In addition to these bed masterpieces, there are also shelves and drawers that are incorporated in the design to allow for storage. In some cases, the beds look more like a jungle gym that you would find a kid playing in, rather than an actual bed that they would sleep in.
