Musical beds

January 22, 2016

With the prospect of moving to a bigger house this year we have started to think about rearranging some of the furniture we have already and what we will need to buy. We’re hoping to find a four bedroomed house so that the children can have a room of their own and I hope that they will settle into their new rooms once we have completed a game of musical beds.

We have been after a new larger bed for some time so moving house seems the perfect opportunity to treat ourselves to a nice kingsize bed. Hopefully, with some additional storage underneath as you can never have too much storage and a large headboard, if possible, to really give it that luxury, hotel feel to the room.


Roo currently has bunk beds in her room which are still in great condition but as she is now a tween they aren’t necessarily the best sleeping solution for her. We are hoping to give her our old double bed which we just need to purchase a new double mattress for. This will then give her a bed that will see her through her tween and teen years and will be great for when she has girlie sleepovers. This also provides us with a guest bed when we have family over to stay as Roo could then go in with Tigger for a few nights.

With Roo moving out of her bunk beds these will hopefully be passed down to Tigger who is still in his toddler bed at the age of five, good job that he is only short (bless him). Whilst I don’t think he is quite brave enough to climb up onto the top bunk to sleep it will allow him to have a full-sized single bed and space for when he has his friends sleep over too.

Tigger’s toddler bed will then be taken apart and stored in the attic until Piglet is big enough to use it. We can finally assemble her cot in her room for when she is old enough to be transferred from her crib.

I’m hoping that when we do move and we’ve changed all the beds around the children will be happy with their new sleeping arrangements (fingers crossed). If not, I’m sure some new bedding will change their minds!

    I can’t believe Tigger is still in a toddler bed, bless him – I bet he’ll be pleased to get a full size bed and I’m sure Roo will love the extra space of a double bed.

    He has done well to be in his toddler bed that long, Molly kept hanging off the edge of hers and would often fall out so we have had to do musical beds ourselves recently and we bought bunk beds so we now have 3 children in one bedroom. I guess it was partly a good thing as we had a big declutter but its not easy with three of them in one room. We have been looking for a 4 bed too but yet to find one, good luck with your search xx

    I used to love changing beds around when I was a kid! Good luck for your bed hunt. If you go for king-size bed, it’s worth considering getting a super king duvet to get a good covering. x

    It’ll be great when it’s all settled though! 🙂 I used to love my bunkbeds as a kid, though the downside was that my little brother always wanted to sleep in the bottom bunk in my room instead of in his room! x #bloggershomes

    How exciting! Hope the house and bed hunt is going well. We are going to build Oliver a bed soon. He’s in the toddler bed set up of his cot bed and I think he’d be more comfortable in a proper bed now…he seems to enjoy our bed enough! Haha.
