Children need a lot more sleep than adults; too little and it will really disrupt their body clock. A young child who hasn't had enough sleep will tend to be very cranky, whereas school age children will have difficulty concentrating throughout the day.
Every parent knows exactly how difficult it is to get a toddler to sleep, whether it's a nap during the daytime or sleeping through the night. A bed that they actually like getting into is a big step in the right direction! For a toddler, it's very exciting when they graduate to their first 'big kid' bed, but for some it can also be emotionally disturbing. The security of a cot is no longer there, and for many children, it's an unpleasant upheaval. One way to make the transition as painless as possible is with a 'junior bed', These beds are smaller than a regular sized single bed, and will allow your child to feel comfortable with the idea of moving. A good idea is to let your child keep a blanket from their cot, making him or her feel safe and comfortable. If your child is a restless sleeper, BedzRus has a number of beds featuring low rise sides, offering protection against falling out. One way to get your child to really enjoy their new bed is through one of their favorite cartoon characters. What little boy wouldn't love going to bed in the company of Thomas the Tank Engine, or how about a Disney Princess bed for your little girl?
When your child gets a little older, it's time to progress to a regular sized single bed. BedzRus carries a wide range of leading brands, such as Thuka, Stompa, Scallywag and Julian Bowen, suitable for various age ranges. A vividly coloured metal bed will really brighten up your child's bedroom, and once again, you can incorporate a theme, such as football, cars or hearts. When buying a bed for a teenager, it's a good idea to let them have some input when making the decision! They will really appreciate being given this sort of responsibility, and are much more likely to treat their new bed with care if they had a role in choosing it. A stylish metal day bed serves double duty for a teen girl - during the day she can dress it up with trendy pillows and cushions, turning it into a seating area to hang out with friends. Your male teen will prefer something understated, such as a classic wooden bed in a natural shade.
An innovative option is a high sleeper, or loft bed. Featuring a ladder to reach the bed, the floorspace underneath offers space for a desk, wardrobe or chest of drawers. BedzRus has a number of high sleepers with built-in storage and furniture, whereas other models offer you the option of choosing whichever item of furniture is suitable (such as a chest, desk, wardrobe, sofa or shelving). This is an excellent way of making use of all the available floorspace in a bedroom, and is particularly suitable for those who need a quiet space to do homework. A mid sleeper, or cabin bed, is a little lower to the ground than a high sleeper, and features built-in storage in the form of shelving and drawers under the bed. It is ideal for a younger child, offering plenty of room for them to keep their belongings in one place.
