Homeowners with limited space are often unsure of how to best equip their child’s room with a great bed and ample storage for all of their clothes, toys, and other personal items. One of the best ways to do this is to actually integrate the storage into the bed, as can be seen in the popular “captain’s bed” style of furniture that is increasingly finding its way into children’s rooms around the world. Kids and adults alike love these double bed with drawers.
Today’s loft-style bunk beds are a far cry from the bunk beds of old. In this setup, a twin bed is placed into the lofted position, it sits overtop of a full bed closer to the ground. IT’s the perfect combination of space and comfort for rooms that pair a younger and older child together. And, in the event that each child gets his or her own room, the loft beds can easily be separated, with a desk or other furniture being stored underneath the lofted twin while the full bed becomes an independent piece of furniture.
Sometimes, there’s really nothing better than turning a cluttered under-the-bed mess into one that’s organized, stored away, and placed into a neat drawer for future use. This is especially true in cramped bedrooms where a dresser or closet is simply not an option. To meet this need, a trundle bed is the perfect combination of sleep quarters and clothing storage.
The captain’s bed was inspired by the beds found in tight living quarters on ships throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. With space at a premium, the bed and dresser become one. The same philosophy applies to today’s beds, where drawers can be used to store clothes, toys, and other items, all without buying a separate piece of furniture or further cramping an already-tight floor plan. For the best combination of storage and comfort, there are few options as efficient and resourceful as the captain’s bed in a children’s room. Best of all, children will be able to call themselves the “captain” from the moment it’s installed. At eKids Rooms, we have a great selection of full-size bed with storage. A full-size captain’s bed is great for growing children. Your child can use this full-size captain’s bed well past graduation into adulthood.
