1. A luxe loft bed
A loft bed is a great way for kids to create their own personal space. Help them create a reading nook, play area, or relaxation zone underneath with a soft rug, pouf pillow, and even some string lights. This way, the bed itself is just for sleep. The association that climbing in means bedtime can help promote a healthy routine.
2. Sleepover-ready trundle
For kids who like to use their imagination, this versatile daybed can be whatever you want it to be. In the daytime, style it with lots of pillows and friendly stuffed animals for a cozy sofa vibe. At night, it’s a twin-sized bed. And when it’s time for a sleepover, this space-saving trundle pulls out to reveal another twin bed (or combines for a king). Stack two four-inch mattresses on top of one another, and simply slide one out to accommodate another sleeper.
3. Sweet fairytale frame
For princess-obsessed little ones, let them drift away with Cinderella in a fairytale-inspired bed frame. This adorable carriage bed offers a dreamy oasis on its own or paired with a gauzy canopy.
4. A functional bunk

A dual-sized bunk is ideal for growing families. Available in an array of finishes, this smart design features a twin bed on top and a full on the bottom. It’s designed for children as young as six and all the way through teenage years. The top bunk has a smart safety rail so you don’t have to worry about rolling, and the ladder can be installed in a fixed location.
5. Transitional toddler bed
Though it may just seem cute, this sweet toddler bed is surprisingly functional. The roof structure offers a cocoon-like feel to help tiny ones transition from their crib to a real bed. Plus, it has chic Scandinavian style with an understated natural wood frame.
6. Multifunctional sport loft bed
Your growing sports fan will love this goalie loft. A simple tubular design is adorned with soccer motifs for style and strategy — there’s a goalie net attached to the back for practice. Plus, the loft is nice and high, so there’s plenty of room underneath for a reading nook, small desk, or extra equipment storage. Goaaaaaaal!
7. Chic farmhouse style
For your modern farmhouse, choose a twin bed that complements your home’s style. This rustic design has a minimal feel that can be accessorized to your little one’s taste. Its gender-neutral styling is great for rooms with more than one sleeper. Plust, sturdy construction can grow with them for years to come.
8. Smart storage solution
Mental and physical clutter is not conducive to bedtime relaxation. Quickly clear toys and stuffed animals strewn across the room with a handy storage bed. This twin-size bed has two roomy drawers, both with metal runners and safety stops, so you don’t have to worry about kids pulling the drawer out on their toes.
9. Treehouse bunk
For larger rooms, an L-shaped bunk can accommodate a roomy full underneath a twin bed. A campsite motif lets kids create a space for both sleep and play with their own private treehouse. Of course, it’s functional as well with a built-in ladder and tall safety rails. A rustic finish completes the mood so they can drift off dreaming of adventures.
10. Bright velvet finish
With several bright color options, a microfiber panel bed is a great way for your little one to express themselves. You can let kids pick their favorite hue that complements their room theme and style. Meanwhile, you can take comfort that it’s a good investment with solid pine wood construction. Plus, four legs create underbed clearance for extra storage
