One thing we parents can never have enough of is sleep. Well actually sleep and STORAGE! As children get older, the amount of toys they accumulate is just staggering. While I guess all that extra plastic does brighten the place up, there has to be somewhere for it all to go.
One of the best ideas when your little man is ready for a new bed is to choose one with some sneaky, clever storage built in. For the same foot print of a normal bed, you could have 3 extra roomy deep drawers to store toys, clothes and anything else you’re sick of tripping over. And this guide is all about finding some fab boys beds with storage to spare. Let’s start looking…
#1 Windermere Solid Pine Mid Sleeper
A tried and tested method to drastically increase places to store kids stuff is to opt for a bed that’s ever so slightly raised up, which allows for some crafty storage underneath. And the best part is that kids absolutely LOVE these raised up beds too. This boys bed with storage is a solid pine affair and has a huge 3 drawers under the bed.
At the foot of the bed there’s two deep shelves, shown here all minimally adorned. In reality they can be crammed with toys and other boyhood treasures. And there’s even a pull-out desk. About the time children need their own bed, they’ll likely also take an interest in doing their own ‘work’, like drawing and making things. This desk saves space by sliding back in if you need the space.
