When it is time to move your little boy to his own sleeping space, you can choose a bunk bed, so he can sleep alone and at the same time feel the presence and through it, the reassurance of an older sibling. Another big advantage of the bunk bed is that you get to conserve a lot of space in the kid’s room. You don’t have to put in a separate bed to accommodate the second/third child. Bunk beds make the room look attractive and exciting. When you consider decorating the kid’s room, you can ask them how they want their room to be designed. They might have some really weird and funny ideas, but designing it the way they like it will encourage them to sleep in their own room without any issues. If you find their ideas too absurd or impractical you could help them choose a workable theme; a theme they will love and be comfortable with. There are a number of options when it comes to choosing a bunk bed design.
You can add a theme to your boy’s room décor. A custom-made pirate theme bed is the most favorable choice among 5-6 year olds. They love the slide, the rock wall, the artificial trees and the jungle hideaway look that accompanies it. You can add many accessories in the same theme to the pirate bunk bed and use the rest of the space for storing your kid’s things. If your child wants a different theme to adorn his room, you could try the lodge cabin theme room or camping room theme.
A lodge cabin theme can be used for kids who love camping styles tents; you can add in a few stuffed animals like squirrels, porcupines, elks and moose to complete the look. You can transform the room with appropriate furniture that goes with this particular theme; like branches instead of a curtain rod, bear skin rug, table lamps with animal shapes and so on.
The camping room can be made really exciting by adding bugs, spiders and critters. You can add in some stuffed pets and dogs to make the room really adventurous. But do this only after consultation with your boy; you don’t want to scare him in the middle of the night. Other themes popular among young boys are rustic log style bunks, fun-based bunks, jungle theme and summer camp theme bunks.
When you choose bunk beds, it is very important that you consider the length between the beds. If a child laying in the lower bed needs a lot of sitting room, then the bed should allow for that. There are several creative solutions to suit a child’s varying needs. You could choose bunk beds that have drawers, desks and dressers attached to them. You don’t have to worry about maxing out your credit because all of these are available at rock bottom prices, especially if you get them during a special discount sale.
