This is why we have put together the parent’s guide to kid’s cabin beds, so you can find out everything there is to know about this space-saving and ingenious bed frame. Explore our huge selection of children’s cabin beds available today, and find out why it might be the perfect option for your child’s bedroom.

Why Choose a Kids Cabin Bed?

Ultimately, kids cabin beds have a plethora of different advantages and benefits which make them a great option for many family homes. Plus, with so many different configurations and options available, you are sure to find the perfect kids cabin bed beloved by parents and children alike. To help you decide on the right cabin bed, we have put together a round-up of some of their best and most popular features, as well as help you decide whether this is the right bed frame for your home and children.

Cabin Beds for Small Rooms

Cabin beds are very popular for smaller bedrooms where space is of a premium. Of course, we all know that children love to play, build dens and have many bulky toys and playsets in their room. So if your child’s bedroom is already lacking in available floor space, then choosing a cabin bed is the perfect way to claim some space back.

This is where mid sleeper and high sleeper cabin beds come in. These basic frames rise above the ground, allowing children more floor space beneath their bed, perfect for all manners of activities. Whether they want a private reading nook, a dress-up space or just more ground floor to set up their favourite toys, cabin beds are the perfect way to make the most out of all the available space in your children’s rooms.

Kids Cabin Beds with Storage

We have already established that kids cabin beds are an excellent space-saving solution, and this is even more true when we consider the many cabin bed configurations on offer. Now, you can browse cabin beds available with in-built desks and more storage solutions. So, if you have the chance to combine one or more pieces of furniture in a children's room, then take advantage of a kids cabin bed with storage and lend more of the room's space to more creative activities for your children.

Cabin beds in our collection are available with a plethora of storage options, including combinations of storage drawers, shelving, cupboards, and trundle drawers. Trundles can be utilised as extra sleeping space when your children’s friends come over to stay, or can also be used as a larger storage drawer. All of these handy features eliminate the need for extra storage furniture in your child’s room so that the remaining space can be better optimized for other purposes.

By maximising storage and floor space with a cabin bed, you can also encourage your children to be more proactive in the tidying of their rooms. When everything has a proper and rightful place, tidying up after a long day of adventures is easy to encourage as the task is so much easier for little hands. This encourages their sense of independence and teaches them valuable organisation skills.

Safe and Reliable

It is a common misconception that cabin beds are immediately unsafe due to their heights, but this isn’t true. Cabin beds have strong and sturdy constructions with wide bases. This ensures that cabin beds are very stable, and parents don’t have to worry about children jumping on the bed or the frame tipping over.

Many cabin beds also feature slightly raised sides and edges which ensure children won’t easily slip or fall off the side, as well as featuring curved bedposts and rounded corners to ensure the safety of fairly active children.

What Age are Cabin Beds Suitable For?

Cabin beds are suitable for children across a broad range of ages, however, it is important to note that we do not recommend standard cabin beds for children younger than 6 years of age. This is due to the height of the cabin bed and the ladders or steps used to climb to the top of the bed. If your younger children are still set on having a cabin bed, then there are several options available at lower heights that may be more suitable and still give the ‘above the ground’ aesthetic and properties. Older children are safe in the mid sleeper and high sleeper cabin beds, and there is really no age limit to when these beds are no longer ‘suitable’. Many cabin beds have the function of growing with your child as they can be converted to single, low beds when your child is ready for a more mature style.
