Find me a nice (normal) kids bed

I need another child’s bed. I’m all over Pinterest looking at the dozens of great ideas around. Except, force your eye past the nice cushions, cute quilts and quirky soft toys and it turns out there is a lot to weird bed to be found.

I’m calling this one The Parent Nightmare-Giver. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice. But, if my wall-mounted shelf can free itself from its fixing – it’s moments away from crashing on the floor – how long before this bed goes the same way? With a child inside! The steep steps, the entrance slot, it’s all reading like a middle-of-the-night A&E trip waiting to happen.

But, I salute the person or persons who had this custom built, because have you seen what’s in the shops lately?

Here’s a glimpse at the ‘designer’ end of the market.

Marc Newson’s bed for Italian super brand Magis. AKA The Lary Toy You Can’t Hide Away At The End Of The Day bed.

Buyers, designers, is there a gap in the market for something simple, good looking and not too pricey?

    And how the heck would you be able to change the bedding in that “shed up the wall bed”? I expect the kids would love it though.

    Does it have to be a kiddies bed or just a single? because John Lewis do a really basic bed that’s great value, metal with wooden slatted base. I have the double version and have put a quilt over the headbars so you don’t even see the bed itself. I don’t like over designed beds or ones that box in your feet, and these are only £60 or £70. It’s sturdy etc and tall enough to put boxes of stuff underneath.

      Thanks Madeleine, a trip to the shop might be in order, though it looks nice from the link pic.
