There are many ways to take advantage of a small space. When you have a new arrival into the family it is important to plan ahead for the future. There are a large amount of things that you have to worry about when planning a baby’s room. You should keep the child’s growth and future needs in mind when doing this.
One of the things that you have to think about when purchasing a home or making home improvements is where you child is going to sleep. Baby cribs are usually outgrown within a few years and traditional cribs might not be the best solution. Understanding this when choosing bedding options can mean a lot for your budget.
A good suggestion is to build a loft bed above the crib. Children love bunk beds and most love the top bunk. When the child outgrows the crib and they are old enough they can safely be moved to the higher bed. The space below the bed can be used as a work or play area. This way you do not need to worry about constructing the area later while the child is switching from crib to bed.
The bed can be adjusted to almost any height and safety gear can be put onto it. Things like safety rails and stairs are easy to install. The bed can later be converted to or if you desire it can be made a full loft bed at the start. This gives your child some extra room without taking up space.
Once the child has grown enough under the bed can be used as a student work area, a computer area, or even just a play area. They are wonderful because they do not take up the space a traditional bed does. The underside of the bed can also be used for storage for the big kids.
Below the bed can also be converted into another bed in order to accommodate and expanding family. This is a cost effective way to give your children bunk beds. Either the full bed or a single mattress or one of each can be used. To help save space and allow your children the room that they need building a bed that can be modified is perfect. There are plans and kits available in all sizes and styles. They even come with ways to add other attachments to them.
When building this type of bed and designing this type of room remember safety first. Remember to keep your child’s needs in mind when designing any room that they live in. If you do choose this type of wooden bed let your child help with painting it and making it their own.
