As a parent, you want to ensure your child sleeps in a comfortable and safe bed at night. However, one of the most common mistakes many parents make is that they walk into a furniture store uninformed regarding the most essential aspects that need to be paid attention to before making a purchase. When looking for designer children’s beds, consider these main criteria if you want to make sure you are buying the right product.
Safety comes first
The first and most important aspect to take into account when searching for children’s beds is safety. It is recommended you opt for a bed that sits lower to the ground. This way, your child will not encounter any trouble when he or she wants to get in or out of bed. Needless to say, chances for them to get injured from falling off the bed are significantly reduced. Some cushions placed around the bed will make you rest assured that such unfortunate accidents will never occur.
It must be a solid bed
The child’s bed must be solid enough, so that no unpleasant incidents will happen. Before placing your child in his brand new bed for the first time, or even before purchasing an Incy Interiors, Bride & Wolfe or Green Cathedral bed, it is best to check the joints and ensure all screws are secure. According to experts, the best type of children’s bed to opt for is one with metal frames. Also, it should be one that comes with no ornamental designs, but with some round edges and smooth finish.
Read the label carefully
It is worth mentioning that both paint and finishes that can be found on the market can contain toxins which can do a lot of harm to one’s health in the long run. Believe it or not, when these toxins are emitted, which usually happens after several years after the coat of paint has been applied onto the product, they can cause skin allergies or even make breathing problems worse. When buying a bed for your toddler, ensure to read the label very carefully and you select furniture that contains low to zero volatile organic compounds and natural finish and paint.
Read user reviews online
The Internet is a resourceful tool, because here you can find literally all information you may need on countless topics. When it comes to children’s beds for instance, by doing some online research you can find user reviews that offer you more insight details on the specific products, and whether or not those who bought the same products as the ones you were interested in were satisfied.
Ensure the bed fits with other furniture in the nursery
You definitely want a safe and comfortable bed for your little one, but you should also have an eye for the nursery décor. You have to ensure all pieces of furniture mingle together and set up a cheerful and joyful atmosphere in the nursery. This means that the bed must fit perfectly within the other furniture in the nursery room.
The price is also important
Although it should not be considered a main selection criterion, the price should be taken into account when choosing a bed for children. The product must fit within your budget. There are various beds for children available for sale, so chances are you will find one to match your criteria.
