You can buy a wide range of types of children’s beds in shops – cots, single beds, bunk beds, raised beds, rollaway beds. There is also a wide range of accessories – laundry boxes, safety barriers (to stop your baby falling out at night), shelves, lockers and slides to attach to the bed. Whatever bed you choose, safety should be the main criterion. Safety in use, safety of materials used, etc. Of course, there are generally accepted regulations and certificates that a product must comply with. But despite these, you should carefully consider the quality of the bed from a safety point of view when making your purchase, and only then look at the design, price and other parameters.

Let’s look at each bed type separately.

Baby bed. When choosing a crib, it should have the following features: adjustable bed height and adjustable height of one or both sides. Removable bars are also a useful feature. An infant bed is a relatively short-term purchase, as the bed has no use once the child grows up. However, more and more cots are appearing in shops that have a fully removable two sides and a reclining bed. This means that once a child has outgrown a slatted cot, it can be “converted” into a regular cot without any additional investment.

Extendable bed. When the crib is too small, it can be replaced by a bigger bed. But how big a bed? Buying a three-year-old a teenage bed that is two metres long is hardly the right choice. This is where fold-out beds, which are very popular in salons such as Zunda, come in handy. The initial length of the bed is 140 cm, but it can be extended to 180 cm. Extending the bed is obvious, but what about the mattress? It’s simple – when you buy a mattress for an extended bed, it will be 180 cm long, but will consist of two parts – 140 cm and 40 cm. The moment the bed needs to be extended, the two mattresses are put together and the bed is 180 cm long.

Teen bed. Sooner or later, 180 cm will be too short for a growing child. Which bed should I choose next? Usually a full-size single bed with a two-metre mattress. But it can just as easily be a bunk bed for two children. One of the best-selling models in the Zunda showrooms is the Brita bed. Its popularity is based on its functionality – the bed can be fitted with safety edges. If you have this bed at home, you can buy the necessary parts to transform it into a bunk bed for two children, if required.

If you choose a raised or bunk bed for your child, you need to pay attention to safety. You need to understand whether your child is of an age to safely climb the stairs to the second floor. Whether the sides of the bed are high enough to prevent the child falling over them. When choosing a bunk bed, there is often a choice of straight or sloping stairs. Sloping stairs will undoubtedly be safer, but will take up more space. It is usually not possible to add a laundry basket to a bed with an inclined ladder, as the ladder is to the floor, unlike a straight ladder.

There are different bed models for different ages. There are also different materials used to make the beds. When it comes to choosing a children’s bed, nothing can compete with a bed made of natural wood. What are the reasons for choosing a wooden bed? Durability – wooden parts will last for years, and if the bed needs to be repaired, wooden parts are much easier to repair or replace than, for example, laminate or metal parts. Warmth – this varies from species to species, but pine, the most popular wood for children’s furniture, is particularly notable for the feeling of warmth it gives to a room. Healthiness – Laminate or particleboard furniture can produce toxic fumes, this is due to the glue used to glue the particleboard together. Wooden furniture will not only be safer for your child, but also for you.
