Cabin beds are the perfect stepping stone for young children; space busting too as they include vital storage for favourite toys and books close at hand. These are full sized beds which are only slightly raised to provide loads of storage space underneath.
It’s amazing how much clobber children collect around them - and from an early age. Here at Little Folks Furniture we’ve been thinking about Cabin Beds, Storage Beds, Mid Sleepers, and all the different ways of storing toys, books, clothes etc. This is about using every bit of space effectively – and our aim is to design cabin beds and storage beds that look just as good as they are practical. Who knows – they might even inspire your child to keep their room tidy!!
Childhood should be a riot of fun and, as every parent knows, balanced by a secure and comfortable space to grow up in. The cabin beds in our Frooti Range tuck a range of drawers, cupboards and shelves under a bed that is not so high off the ground to be scary. But just to make sure we remember this is a child’s bedroom we have put together a masterful palette of colours to inject just enough brightness into everyday life without being overpowering. We accent the doors and drawer fronts of the cabin beds with a classic red, ever-popular lime or trending silver grey (and there’s white too). And it’s not just about the cabin beds; there are great children’s desks, clever wall and desk shelves and some properly sized and properly made chairs (from solid beech) – all in the same palette. So you can exact clever and subtle co-ordination through the room – or mix it up a bit by matching complimentary colours such as a red cabin bed with a grey fronted desk and red chair to bring it all together.
Mid-Sleeper systems have all the versatility as well as the storage – and are great for children aged 6+ years and in smaller rooms. The Mid-Sleeper Bed frame is slightly higher allowing chest of drawers, storage bookcases, desks to be stored underneath – or you can simply leave some space under the mid-sleeper bed as a great den for playing! Our Mid-Sleeper system comes in bundles with different furniture – but all the furniture is on multi-directional castors which means you can push it away wherever and whenever you like. And if you get bored with one configuration you can change it around to your heart’s content. As with our Frooti Cabin Beds we have worked with the same colour palette to add an extra layer to these Mid Sleepers. We have combined a traditional “red white and blue” combination and a more contemporary “lime white and grey”.
Our team has been at the forefront of nursery and children’s furniture for many years accumulating a wealth of knowledge and expertise. We are designers, we are manufacturers but above all we are passionate about making the best cabin beds and mid sleepers possible and ensuring the designs work time after time. We are so involved in every detail that we have our very own test house where we physically test our products and actually measure how well they do. At the end of the day making sure the design of the mid sleepers meet the safety standards is one thing but we strive to make sure our high sleepers perform beyond this and all the time.
