Mid Sleeper Bed

Mid Sleeper Beds: A Complete Guide

When it comes to children’s beds, there are few options that are as universally popular or as well known as mid sleeper beds. While its metaphorical sibling, the high sleeper bed does have its fair share of fans, the faithful mid sleeper offers a unique and special middle ground. 

While the exciting world of children’s beds can seem rather daunting and sometimes even overwhelming; the crowd pleasing mid sleeper is definitely a bed you should take note of. But the world of high rise beds, mid sleeper and stylish Thuka beds might be so confusing we hear you say. Luckily, we have decided to give you the complete guide regarding mid rise beds. 

What Is A Mid Sleeper Bed? 

 To put it plainly, a mid rise bed is the middle ground between a traditional single bed and the previously mentioned high sleeper bed. Whereas high sleeper beds, or bunk beds for that matter, can usually accommodate for up to two beds or have much more storage space, the mid rise edition is not nearly as fruitful with exactly how high the bed actually goes. 

The bed is sometimes referred to as middle child as far as children’s beds are concerned. This slightly raised bed is more than a simple middle child however, it is actually a fantastic storage solution. Because of this unique use, the beds are sometimes referred to as cabin beds. In cabin beds, you can store a plethora of everyday items and materials (we will expand more on this later). 

Why Choose One?

As previously alluded to, there are many reasons to choose a cabin bed. One reason being that it is incredibly helpful when it comes to storage. Because the beds are only slightly elevated compared to a high sleeper which expertly caters to having another bed underneath or even a desk depending on your requirement; the bed lends itself much better to the storing of many household items. The items can include, but are definitely not limited to; clothes, blankets, game consoles and other day to day items. 

Another contributing factor to why people opt for these industry leading child’s beds is the fact they are exceptionally stylish. Just by having the bed a couple of feet from the floor, this spices up its aesthetic immeasurably. In addition to this, the bed can actually have multiple different themes and/or decor draped around it. We will touch on the different ways you can implement different themes to your mid rise bed later in this blog. 

The famous mid rise bed is also very adaptable making it the perfect child bed to suit a majority of different decors. 

So, as you might have gathered, the mid rise bed is particularly practical, undeniably stylish and caters to a unique requirement in the bed industry.  

What Age Do Mid Sleeper Beds Best Suit? 

As opposed to the high sleeper, which can sometimes be used by much older teenagers or even adults; this being because high sleeper beds can be repurposed as an office desk and bed combo amongst other things. Mid sleepers do not have this distinction. 

The mid rise bed is more commonly associated with younger children. Although we say young teenagers; we might reiterate that before you consider buying a mid sleeper for your child there are some caveats. 

One of these caveats being that you must make sure your child is not too young to cause a safety concern. This is why most manufacturers suggest that your child is at least 6 years old. However, we might additionally ensure that your child is comfortable enough to sleep in a single bed on their own and to be able to do so safely. 

We have taken the liberty of breaking down the 3 main age categories that mid sleepers appeal for you. We have also provided a short detailed explanation as to why this unique bed is so suitable and popular in the specific age categories: 

6-9 year olds

For this age category the bed really helps to expand their imagination whilst also having the clear advantage of being able to store their favourite toys or other items under the bed. 

10-14 year olds  

10 to 14 year olds might still want to keep their imaginations running wild but this age category requires a greater focus on academic achievements. As such, the area underneath the bed can be used for a convenient storage area of pens, notepads and other academia products.  

14-18 year olds

14 year olds and overs are potentially the least likely age category to still have a mid sleeper but that doesn’t mean they can’t find new and interesting ways to explore their unique sleeping arrangements. 

Are They Safe? 

One of the questions on most parent’s minds will of course be, are mid sleeper beds safe? And who would blame them? when it comes to choosing a bed for your children, the overall safety of the bed is paramount. Generally speaking, mid sleeper beds are pretty safe. It must be said however, this is assuming certain rules are always followed.

Firstly, the bed should have been assembled in the correct manner. The same can be said for any bed. If the bed is not assembled correctly then the general integrity of the bed might be called into question. The last thing you want is the bed facing a catastrophic collapse when you or another member of your family are near it, or worse, on it. 

Jumping should also be discouraged. Because the bed is raised slightly off the floor, you can imagine your little one might be tempted to jump down from the bed. But the mid sleepers are not designed for this purpose and subsequently jumping from the bed is heavily discouraged. 

Additionally, a sufficiently sized mattress should be used for the bed. While this is not a great safety concern; having an ineffective mattress can lead to a great deal of discomfort for your child. 

Expanding Your Imagination With A Mid Sleeper Bed

As previously alluded to, mid sleepers are far from a one trick pony. There are many themes and designs which can be implemented. We thought we would break down some of the most common. 

With A Slide

We start with potentially the most fun of all the eligible accessories available for your mid rise bed. When you equip a slide to your bed; you ensure that every time your child comes to get out of bed it is a fun and exciting experience. You might think that this novelty would get boring, but we have heard from our customers, it never actually does!

With A Tent

By installing a tent into your cabin bed; this enables children to create their own little get away from the rest of the world. The tent acts as their own personal play space whilst simultaneously offering a unique and special experience for your child. 

Fit A Pull Out Desk

While the high sleeper bed might be able to have a fully fleshed out desk; the frequently mentioned mid sleeper bed can actually come equipped with a pull out edition. The pull out desk is extremely beneficial as not only is this incredibly practical as the desk can be used for academic purposes but the fact the desk can be put away after use is a clear advantage. 

A Unique Tailored Design

When it comes to designing your mid rise bed, the sky really is the limit. There have been so many different designs tailored to unique ideas we can not actually keep track of them all. One such example is a mid sleeper which had been changed to resemble a doll house. This came equipped with sliding doors which opened to reveal the picturesque bed.

At UK Bed Store, we stock a wide range of children’s beds. From kids’ high sleepers, to mid sleepers to traditional children’s beds. No matter the requirement for your bed, we are sure we will have something to fit your purpose.

Which Bed is Best for Your Age?

Some people say age is just a number and whilst it might be, certain products are definitely catered to specific age groups. You wouldn’t see adults aged 40 playing with nerf guns for example. 

What we would like to know however is; does this apply to beds? From comfy day beds to luxury upholstered beds, are these beds meant to be for specific ages or can they be enjoyed by anyone?

Firstly, there are particular beds that are just impractical for certain age groups. If you are over the age of 65 you might not want to climb up a high rise bed. Similarly, if you have a 5 year old child you wouldn’t want to see them in a limited edition king size with a tailor made headboard. 

So, if you are thinking of making a bed purchase in early 2022 and are struggling to decide which is best for you and more specifically your age, we’ve got you covered. 

High Sleeper and Mid Sleeper Beds

These little gems are perfect for children but you might not know, high sleepers in particular are becoming increasingly popular with teenagers and even young professionals. 

Mid sleeper beds are very popular with younger children. The slightly elevated beds offer ample storage underneath for toys and smaller clothing making them perfect for children aged 4-12. In addition, the bed being slightly off the ground gives younger children an element of fun as they think the bed has a little bit of something special.  

High sleeper beds are again popular with younger children as they enjoy the novelty of being high up in their room. However, we have found these beds can be even more popular with teenagers and, rather surprisingly, young adults. 

This is because high rise beds provide a fantastic opportunity to install an office desk setup which is perfect for giving your bed a sense of functionality. Teenagers love spending hours gaming with their friends whilst young professionals love the practicality of being able to roll out of bed and log straight onto their work laptop. 

This is particularly beneficial for young professionals who live in a house share or in a city apartment where there is not an over abundance of space available. So if you are in these age categories and are looking for a new bed, high and mid sleeper beds might be ideal for you.

The Thuka Range

Whilst we are on the topic of beds for younger children, we would like to highlight our Thuka range. For many of your little ones, the joy of Christmas has now worn off. Their bedroom floors are being scattered with the toys they were looking forward to all year and their beds are being slowly filled with more and more blankets as the colder nights draw in. 

You might not be thinking it now but this is the perfect time to treat them to a new bed. This is where Thuka comes in. Thuka offers funky and vibrant beds ideally suited to younger children and teenagers. 

Thuka is a Danish brand that caters their beds specifically to children. They offer hip and trendy designs, a fantastic degree of flexibility and a brilliant opportunity for your young ones to grow with them. How the bed looks is very important to younger children. If they happen to be showcasing one of the many stylish Thuka designed beds when their friends come for a sleepover, there is no doubt they will be jealous. 

Adult Beds, Where to Start?

Whilst there are vast opportunities available for teenagers, kids and even young adults, this is nothing compared to options available for adults. 

To clarify, when I refer to adults, I am referring to 25-45 year olds. Adults want beds that can usually be described as sleek, homely and traditional. From faux leather beds to unique wooden bed frame beds to even coil memory foam mattresses, the possibilities are endless. 

If you have ever browsed our extensive catalogue, you might have garnered that beds tailored to adults are most of the beds we supply. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few stand outs. 

Customisation 

Even though beds catered to children offer fantastic customisation, this is nothing compared to what is on offer for adults. 

When you are thinking of constructing your bed, you might want to start with what frame you want. Do you want a metal frame? Do you need a double bed frame? Are you thinking of upgrading to a king size or is a single more than sufficient? 

Then, after you have decided on the best bed frame for you, you will need to make the decision on your mattress. 

Serene Furnishings 

Whilst on the topic of having a plethora of options, we would like to highlight serene furnishings. 

Founded back in 2005, Serene Furnishings have quickly become one of the UK’s leading brands for beds. They offer contemporary designs, sleek fittings and all of their products are of exceptional quality. 

Mattresses for Seniors 

Beds are important for seniors but arguably the more important aspect of your bed is the accompanying mattress. 

Although many of us love a comfy mattress. When seniors are enquiring about a new bed, they will want to pay particular attention to the mattress. The right mattress has to be comfy, help relieve stress and also be aesthetically pleasing. A fantastic example of a mattress that perfectly fits this criteria is one of our deluxe feather mattresses. Be sure to check out our full range of mattresses on our mattresses page.

New Bed In Time For Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, you might think that the last thing on your mind is treating yourself to a new bed. But why should that be the case! It’s Christmas for you too!

Treating Yourself

At Christmas time, we know that most people will focus on treating others. Spoiling them with presents, festive dinners and plenty to drink. So when it comes to treating yourself, it may feel like a strange concept. Particularly when it comes to a whole new bed.
However, here at UK Bed Store, we believe that you need a good treat too. And there’s nothing better than the gift of a good nights sleep.
Treating yourself starts with finding the perfect frame, before choosing the mattress that will offer you the bed nights sleep possible.

The Perfect Frame

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect frame, from faux leather beds, to luxury upholstered beds and even a stunning, intricate metal bed. Choosing the right double bed frame is as simple as deciding on your style.
Sleek and stylish – Faux leather beds make for a great addition to your room if you are looking for an excellent sleek style. Consider the Texas double bed frame from Metal Beds, one of our personal favourites.
Plush and comfortable – Upholstered beds are a great choice if you are looking for a soft comfortable finish to your bed. The rust-red colouring of the Time Living Hamburg double bed frame stands out as a statement piece in your room while offering complete comfort.
Elegant and decadent – if your bedroom has an air of elegance, you might want to consider a metal bed frame. The Birlea Bronte is a stunning Victorian classic shape.
Simple and classic – If you are looking for a simple double bed frame, a wooden bed might be just what you are looking for. The Birlea Rio is the perfect understated bed, with matching furniture available.

Good Nights Sleep

Getting a good nights sleep isn’t actually about the bed itself, more the mattress than anything. So once you’ve chosen your new frame, it’s time to make sure that you are getting the right mattress for you.
Head over to our recent blog on “Choosing The Right Mattress For You” for more information on finding the right mattress to give you a good nights sleep.

Treat The Kids

Now we aren’t saying that you need to buy the kids a new bed as part of their Christmas present. Although some of our kid’s range are great fun, so they might enjoy it more than some toys!
We’re thinking practical kids and teens beds. As our kids get older, they might need more space, or storage in their room. So why not consider high sleeper beds? Or even mid sleeper beds?
The Thuka Hit collection offers a selection of high sleeper beds, complete with a desk and a fold out chair bed. Perfect for sleepovers!
For extra storage in a mid sleeper bed, take a look at the LPD Rocco, this will give your little pirates the perfect pirate ship vibes, not to mention storage below deck!

For more information on ordering your new bed in time for Christmas, get in touch with a member of the team here at UK Bed Store who will be happy to help you. Visit our delivery page for more information on delivery.

Mid Sleeper Beds – The Perfect Choice for your Child!

In regards to choosing the right bed, mid sleeper beds can quite possibly be the perfect choice for your child.

Choosing the right bed for your child can prove to be difficult, especially with a range of options to choose from.

Do you want to go plain and simple, or more extravagant? Do you have more than one child? There’s a whole host of questions you need to consider before purchasing a bed.

If you’ve never considered a mid sleeper bed, these are great options regardless of the child’s age.

Why Mid Sleeper Beds Make a Perfect Choice

We’ve come up with a few reasons as to why you should consider getting mid sleeper beds for your children.

  • They are incredibly fun

If you were to ask any child, they’d pick anything over a standard bed. Sometimes, if a bed is boring, a child might not even want to sleep in it. If you make their bed exciting, they can’t wait to go and adventure in dreamland. Some mid sleeper beds offer tents underneath, often helping to help inspire creativity and the use of imagination.

  • Increasing storage

If your space is limited or the child is in a box room – mid sleeper beds provide a huge amount of storage capability, with many coming with bookshelves, cupboards or other storage facilities.

  • They can be converted

As is the case with most things, your child is going to out grow the mid sleeper beds. But, if required, most of them can be converted into a single bed – effectively letting you get two beds for the price of one!
