Kinderling News & Features

Thinking of decorating your kid's bedroom? Want to make it the envy of every Insta-blogger and Pinterest fanatic? We've rounded up some of our favourite kids' beds that are sure to impress kids and parents - because, you know, it's your house and all.

The "Camping Inside" Bed

The tee-pee bed brings the excitement of the great outdoors to bedtime, and we reckon it'll have kids wanting to tell campfire stories and stargaze out the window. Pretty idyllic, really!

The Hanging Bed

What happens when you cross a swing with a bed? You get the magical concept of the hanging bed! You don't want it too swingy (for obvious OH&S reasons), but the suspended look is undeniably elegant and guaranteed to wow little dreamers.

The Slippery Dip Bunk

The worst part of a bunk bed is getting out of it ... UNLESS you have a slippery dip! This concept gets a big tick of approval in our books.

The Treehouse Bed

Space efficient and adorable - a treehouse bed is like a hovering bunk bed that will be converted into your kid's own personal clubhouse in no time. Another benefit is that there's no exposed sides, meaning there's pretty much a zero percent chance of your kid falling out of bed mid-slumber.

The Whimsical Frame Bed

This is the stRipped-back and understated little sister of the tee-pee bed, but every bit as magical. The exposed frame is a perfect blank canvas for draping fabrics, fairy lights, vines etc etc. It can be adapted to suit any child's preferred 'aesthetic'.

The Luxe Helicopter Bed

If your kid has high hopes of owning a superyacht, mansion and private jet - you can start fulfilling their aspirations early with this fancy AF helicopter bed. The price tag on this bespoke bad boy is unknown, and probably best it stays that way ... as our guess is that it's comfortably upwards of $10k!
