It is human nature to seek ownership of a space. From childhood right through to our adult stage of life, we desire somewhere that feels safe and is familiar territory; therefore it is no surprise that, for children in particular, moving home can be at first a stressful and unsettling experience.
In this dedicated furniture focus, i-build highlights a selection of fun and quirky bedroom solutions, which might just help ease those new home nerves.
Innovations in children’s beds have enabled these spaces to really come to life. Available in all different sorts of shapes, sizes and configurations, beds can add a personal touch to a bedroom. Fun, practical and space-saving options can be very affordable and could make all the difference when occupants are acclimatising to their new environment.
Ideal for space optimisation, the triple trundle bed solution by Clever (supplied by www.myitalianliving.com) is an innovative concept which features a quirky, playful design. Suitable for children aged 8-16, the set contains a triple truckle bed, bridge wardrobe and tall bookcase. The bright, contemporary ‘Red’ hue makes an instant impact and enables its users to take ownership of the space.
Box beds also offer plenty of character. With soft lines and a lacquered finish, the Spanish furniture range from Nubie is the ideal sleeping companion for any child. The range comes in over 16 stunning colours and can be accompanied by matching bedroom furniture. Eight large drawers are perfect to keep safe toys and treasures – but are also handy storage solutions for those parents who prefer rooms neat and tidy.
Luxury living specialist e-side has introduced another innovative concept – behold the bed with multiple functions designed to grow as both the child and family grows. The IO Bunk Pod is an all-in-one, space-saving place for children to sleep, store and study.
This clever bunk pod can be configured in many ways to suit a whole host of needs – use as a single bunk bed that houses a self-contained workstation and shelving unit beneath; a standard bunk bed that sleeps two; or as two standalone single beds.
Crafted from smooth, sustainable and sturdy Scandinavian birchwood and laminated for extra resilience, the Bunk Pod exemplifies the typical IO Kids Design aesthetic.
With grooved panelling, clean lines and gentle curves, the Charterhouse solution from ASPACE has a touch of effortless style for the more discerning child’s bedroom. These beautiful bunk beds come in five classic colours, from soft whites and neutral taupe to Prussian blue and a lovely dark grey, all with a gorgeous silky finish.
The bunks are made from solid pine and composites, with panelled head and foot ends. The sturdy lean to ladder can be positioned at either end to suit their room. The beds can be easily spilt into two full sized single beds, to give another option for sleeping arrangements when the time comes for a change.
Whatever your new property’s decor or size, there are a whole host of bedroom solutions to help your little ones feel more at home.
