How do you find the right cot?

Hoe vind je het juiste kinderbedje?

Children's bed: this is how you find the best one!

Buying a cot can sometimes be even more difficult than purchasing your own bed. Because there are so many different shapes and sizes and you naturally wish your child the very best! We will give you a helping hand and list the different types of children's beds, including their advantages and disadvantages. Handy, right?

If you thought you already had many options when choosing your own bed, then start looking around for a cot. Much more choice! Because are you going for a loft bed, bunk bed, grow-along bed or trundle bed? A wooden bed, aluminum frame? Princess bed or pirate bed? We show you what options are available, so that you can easily choose which bed best suits the room, suits you and of course your child.

Space saving cots

Is the children's room not that big? Or do you just want to use the space you have as practically as possible? Then choose this type of cot: a trundle bed, bunk bed or loft bed. A bunk bed is ideal if two children sleep in the same room, or if friends often come to stay. Enjoy the heights! That is not only very practical, but also fun. Because what child doesn't love an adventurous bed? Enjoy climbing and scrambling! A possible disadvantage of a bunk bed can be safety. Fortunately, there are many safety gates for sale for the top bunk. But does your child often have to go to the toilet at night? Then he will also have to climb out of bed more often. Take this into account in your choice.

Is the height no problem, but does your child sleep alone in a room? Then a loft bed can be a solution. This is a high bed with, for example, a seat or desk underneath. Also ideal for small spaces! A trundle bed can also be a solution for limited spaces. Very useful if friends often want to stay over. This way you can have a slumber party every day, without the entire bedroom being full. You can easily extend the bottom bed, so you don't have to do anything crazy with mattresses or air mattresses on the floor. Now that is a practical and flexible cot.

Very practical: a grow-along bed

The step from a crib to a cot can be quite exciting for your child. That new bed is very big... Children are not always used to a bed without bars that prevent them from falling out of bed. The solution? A grow-along bed! These beds have side panels to protect your child from falls. These panels are also very easy to remove when they are no longer needed. This way you can enjoy this bed for years to come.

Princess or pirate bed

A fun theme bed makes going to sleep a party! How about a pink princess bed? Or a cool pirate bed? Whether your child likes it sweet, adventurous or very colorful: there is always a cot that fits exactly with the theme of the bedroom and the wishes of your child. Use your imagination! A possible disadvantage of such a colorful and striking bed may be that after a certain age children prefer a more mature bed. But then you can certainly make a younger brother, sister, nephew or niece very happy with it!

At Solo Home we sell cots in all shapes and sizes. From grow-along beds to bunk beds and from colorful theme beds to classic wooden beds. And even better: all our children's beds come standard with free matching mattresses and slatted bases.
