Many parents will opt for a single bed or bunk beds for their little ones, however, there are several other types of kid's beds on the market.


49. Single Bed

While technically a bed size, single beds are commonly found in children’s rooms because of their small size. They are 36 by 75 inches, making them smaller than twin beds. Single beds are great for toddlers and small children.

50. Bunk Bed

Bunk beds are a very popular style of bed for children who share rooms. They save space by having one bed directly above the other to form a complete unit. A ladder is then used to get to the top bed.

51. Triple Bunk Bed

Just like the name suggests, triple bunk beds have three beds. They stack directly on top of each other and can be made out of metal or wood. Triple bunk beds come in full, twin, and queen bed sizes for children of all ages.

55. Loft Bed

A loft bed is a single bed that is raised above ground leaving a comfortable space below it. It is similar to a bunk bed in that it has a ladder to reach the top, however, there is no bed underneath. This bed is great for children’s bedrooms as it leaves room underneath to create a desk or play area.

56. L-Shaped Bed

As the name suggests, L-shaped beds are L-shaped. They combine two beds to fit into a corner. This is a popular option for a kid’s bedroom because it saves space and allows siblings to sleep right by each other.

57. Bed with a Slide

58. Treehouse Bed

If your little one has a big imagination, they are going to love a treehouse bed. A treehouse bed is lifted above the ground and is shaped like a treehouse. This type of bed can also be made into a bunk bed if you have multiple children.

59. Car Bed

60. Cabin Bed

61. Novelty Bed
