What Size Bed do I need?

Firstly, you’ll need to take measurements of the chosen room to give you a better idea of what will fit and how much space you have left to play with for storage furniture. It’s worth noting the position and dimensions of doors and windows at this stage, as well as the space of those that open into the room. This will help to determine which type of bed is most suitable – a single bed, king single bed, loft bed, bunk bed or double bed.

Find a Style to Suit Your Space

If you’re looking for something solid and sturdy, yet budget-friendly then our Tidy Single Bed may be a great option to consider. It’s minimal in style with a traditional slatted headboard and is expertly crafted from sustainable solid wood. Its lower height makes it ideal for younger children, however there’s still plenty of space underneath for discreet storage.

Space-Saving Beds for Smaller Rooms

Floor space is a common concern for parents when it comes to designing a child’s room, particularly if the room is slightly on the smaller side! Our loft beds could be the perfect solution - you can utilise the additional space underneath to suit your child’s needs, whether they want a suitable play area, need sensible storage or a dedicated study corner!

Our Milano King Single Loft Bed is a great choice for a more contemporary look with its curved shape and bold lines. Crafted with sustainable solid wood, it combines beauty with practicality for your child to treasure for years to come.

Beds for Siblings

It’s not always possible for every child to have their own room and often, it’s a novelty for younger children to share their bedroom. The obvious choice is a traditional bunk bed but when they’re that little bit older, or if you’re sick of the fight for the top bunk then two single beds may be more suitable. Boori bunk beds can be converted to two single beds, designed with your family’s changing needs in mind.

Our Scout Single Bunk Bed offers a simplistic style to suit any interior and is crafted with solid Australian Araucaria wood to ensure that your kids have a safe and sturdy place to sleep in. For additional peace of mind, the top bunk has been provided with four guarded rails to protect them from all sides.
