Think about your first bed. Was it a hand-me-down from grandma’? Or perhaps it was your big sister’s old bed. Long gone are the days of hand-me-downs. These days, kids want to express themselves in every way possible. And who wouldn’t want this? This helps them develop their own voice and their personality. But what are the options out there for them? They range from upholstered beds with bright colours and custom options to funky but functional bed configurations.

From Crib to College

Convertible beds are a practical option that is both cost-efficient and stylish. These come with multiple size options, all in one piece of furniture. You can adapt and increase the size of the bed as your child grows up. This crib can easily convert to a full-size bed. What if your little one wants a change of style? No problem! You can use it in a second bedroom or convert it to a daybed.
