Bookshelves serve many practical purposes, but they can also be restored and repurposed to store and display random knickknacks and other household items in an interesting manner.

    By definition, repurposing is the act of altering and reusing an items with a purpose different from what is was originally created for.

With a little modification, you can turn a bookshelf that previously held your child’s favorite bedtime stories into a multifunctional desk.

    2. Turn an old bookcase into a reading bench. You can easily transform a bookshelf into a reading bench for your kids by laying it on its side and finding a cushion to rest on the top. And as a bonus? You will still be able to store your child’s books on the shelves below the seating area!

    3. Dual workstations. If your kids are sharing a room or you are interested in having an extra workspace in your child’s room, you may consider turning a bookcase into a two-person workstation. This is a creative, unique way to repurpose a bookshelf that will have multiple uses, while still looking cool.

    4. Under the bed storage. For kids’ rooms that are low on storage, a great option is to use a bookshelf under the bed frame. This will allow you to keep your child’s belongings more organized and utilize an area that is oftentimes neglected. You can also use a bookcase underneath a loft bed for more organization and storage. From serving as a place to display pictures and figurines to being used as a storage area for toys and stuffed animals, your options are endless.

    5. Create a play kitchen. A bookshelf can also be used to create a play kitchen for your young children. It is best to use a three-shelf bookcase for this project, as it will allow you to establish separate sections for different uses.

  • 4 Money Saving Tips for Kids’ Bedroom Furniture and Decor

    Family Saving Money In PiggybankWith the holiday season approaching, families across the country are feeling the financial pinch of preparing for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the colder winter months. We all want to have a wonderful holiday time with our families, but we also need to keep our financial plans organized and stay within our budgets.

    If new furniture or decor upgrades for the kids’ rooms are on your holiday to-do list, you know the challenges of getting something nice for your kids without breaking the bank. At Mom’s Bunk House, we work with families just like yours everyday to help create a great bedroom at a great price. Check out the great money savings tips below, and you’ll be able to fit a kids’ bedroom into your holiday finances without breaking a sweat.

    Plan and Budget Carefully. When you’re trying to get a lot done without spending a lot of money, planning and budgeting are key. You don’t want to just start shopping without a clear idea of how much you can spend and what your priorities are. Once you’ve got a clear idea of your budget, you can consider how to best allocate your spending to meet your main needs.

    Painted By KidsDesign your own Decor. The kids’ bedroom is probably the best place in the house for DIY decor!Kids love to make arts and crafts, and they’re proud to display trophies, photos, great homework projects, and more. A thoughtful collection of your kids’ favorite memories and artwork can turn a dull bedroom into a beautiful gallery of your child’s best moments - and of course, it’s free! This is a great example of where you spend time, not money, to achieve a great result.

    Invest in Quality. While getting a great deal is always fun, for essential furniture items, cheapest usually isn’t best - and will often cost more in the long run. You’re usually better off to invest in real quality for items like beds, dressers, desks, and other major furniture pieces. A good quality item can last for many years, and will also be better designed, more functional, and safer.

    Daddy Is ThinkingGo Step-by-Step. Trying to do a complete bedroom redesign all at once will usually end up costing you more than doing things in stages. With too many different things to think about, you’ll be less organized and less able to plan carefully. You’ll also end up being pressured to make decisions, and you’ll have less ability to coordinate your choices. Unless you’re facing some kind of bedroom design emergency, it’s usually better to go slowly and carefully.

    Remember that at Mom’s Bunk House, we offer a 100% price match guarantee, meaning that we’re sure you’ll never find better prices on our products anywhere the web. We hope these tips help you and your family have a wonderful and affordable holiday season!

  • Safety Tips for the Kids' Bedrooms

    Pretty mixed race girl and Caucasian boy pretending to be superhWhen you’re thinking about furnishing and decorating your children’s bedrooms, you’ve got many different goals and ideas in mind. You want the room to look nice of course, both for you and your kids as well. You want it to be functional and allow your children to live efficiently in their own space. But more than anything else, you want to be sure that your children’s rooms are safe.

    Every parent worries about safety, and while you don’t want to go overboard and slip into that “paranoid parent” mode, you still want to be careful. Your kids will be spending lots of unsupervised time in their rooms, and especially when they’re younger, you want to be sure that their rooms are a safe environment where they can play and learn without any unnecessary risks. And while nothing can ever be 100% safe, there are some real steps you can take to improve the safety of your kids’ rooms.

    Watch out for radiators and electrical outlets.

    This is a basic childproofing step that you’ll probably be taking throughout your home when a new baby is due. However, being extra careful about electrical outlets and radiators is an important first step in improving the safety of your kids’ bedrooms. Outlets should have child-proof guards placed on them, as should radiators, to prevent curious kids from potentially having a serious accident. Once your kids get a little older, you can also explain to them what these things do, and how to use them safely.

    Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

    This is a safety tip that has less to do with your kids’ behavior, and more just with general safety. However, this certainly doesn’t make it any less important. No one imagines that they will experience a fire at home, but it can happen in many ways, including cooking accidents, fireplace problems, smoking mistakes, and more. Having smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your kids’ rooms will bring peace of mind and could even save lives. Remember, once you’ve installed them, test regularly and replace batteries when needed.

    Invest in quality children’s furniture.

    Children Room DetailAt Mom’s Bunk House, we strongly believe in stocking furniture that doesn’t just look great, but that is also genuinely well built and designed with safety in mind. When you’re choosing furniture for your kids’ bedrooms, always consider safety as a top priority. Good kids’ furniture will be balanced and weighted correctly so that it won't tip over, even when exposed to some roughhousing. It will be free from very sharp edges, and built without potentially toxic paint, hanging strings or cords, large panes of glass, and other child safety risks.

    By following these safety tips, you’ll be well on your way to improving your children’s rooms with safety in mind. Of course, there’s lots of other safety advice for kids that you can research, but these tips are some of the simplest and most important.

  • Back to School Tips for the Kids Bedroom

    Young child holding stack of books and back to school written onAt Mom’s Bunk House, we know that one of the most important times of the year for your family is the back to school season. This is the time when your little ones get ready for a new year filled with learning, fun, challenges, and opportunities. And although it can be sad to see the summer end, the new school year is always an exciting time for you and your kids.

    Our back to school sale is still going strong here at Mom’s Bunk House, and to help you make the most of our great discounts, we’ve put together a few simple tips and ideas on how your can get your kids’ rooms ready for the new year.

    Get Ready for Homework. These days, homework is just a fact of life for kids in school. Kids are getting loads of homework every day, and it is important that parents find ways to support their kids through homework (without doing it themselves!). One way you can help your kids excel at homework is to invest in a great desk and chair. While they might look cute with their work spread across their beds, especially as kids get older, they need a proper work station to really focus and work comfortably.

    • Get Organized in General. Organizational skills are very important to succeed at school and in life. Some kids might be more organized by nature than others, but parents can help encourage kids to stay organized by giving them the right tools. In the bedroom, this can mean things like bookcases, toy boxes, dressers, and other storage solutions. By equipping your kids’ rooms with the right organizational furniture, you’re helping them keep it all together and learn how to stay organized in the future.
    • Get a Great Sleep. As adults, we know the importance of sleeping well to ensure productivity. We’ve all felt that grind of having to work after a bad night’s sleep, and we know that it is almost impossible to get anything done when feeling exhausted. The same is true for your kids! A quality bed with a good mattress that is comfortable and safe is key to ensuring your kids are well rested to perform in school. Don’t forget that unlike adults, kids are growing! You should be sure that your children’s beds haven’t become too small for them to sleep comfortably.

    We all know that school is becoming more competitive for our kids today. Like it or not, even early grades can have an impact on your children’s futures, and building good habits early is vital to your kids’ futures. We hope these tips will help you get ready for the back to school season, and we wish you a wonderful new school year

  • 4 Advantages of Having Bunk Beds

    STH-500-Tw-Tw-Stairway-Bunk-+-1300-UBC8Of all the great items for sale at Mom’s Bunk House, there is one category which stands out the most – our wide selection of bunk beds. Its totally unavoidable, kids love the idea of a bunk bed. If you have an only child who likes the company of friends for sleepovers, it becomes the only thing they will talk about with friends at school tomorrow morning. If you’re lucky enough to have two or more children, bunk beds are a great option to keep your home costs down.
    What are some other benefits for having bunk beds? Keep reading to learn more!
    Fun for the kids
    Like we mentioned earlier, having friends over becomes a blast, and if you have two children who get along well, bunk beds can make best friends out of them. Children who work together at an early age will be more likely to stick together when they are old enough to be out on their own in college, after college, and further along in life. Keeping a family together in the long term is made easier by the childrens’ relationship with one another.
    Lower cost of a home
    Having one room for two kids definitely reduces the cost of a home. Buying a home with one extra bedroom usually comes with an addition of an extra bathroom as well, which can push the cost of a home as much as $50k higher, for the increased square footage and extra claim to fame. A larger house also means more work and maintenance costs, which brings us to our next subject.
    Lower operating costs
    With a more compact home, operating costs are reduced as well, such as electricity (Heating and Air Conditioner) and cleaning is made much simpler. A larger family in a more family-sized home will clean more easily without instruction and helps build teamwork rather than leaving all the chores to one person.
    Creativity and Cooperation
    What kid doesn’t want to hang their head over the side of the bed to play games or talk to their brother, sister or best friend? Bunk beds literally allow your children to explore another dimension of fun by giving them vertical freedom. In seconds, their bunks can go from bed to fort to spacecraft and back to bed. Sleeping in the same room as their sibling lets your children rely on each other more and less on their parents for comfort.
    If you’re worried about whether your children would like our selection, just take a look at our extensive collections and see what variety we have to offer your home! A great place to start would be our Twin over Full bunk beds, which offer elegant space solutions to families looking for a handsome looking bed in a compact home.

  • 4 Personal Touches Your Child Can Choose That Won’t Break The Bank

    4 Personal Touches Your Child Can Choose That Won’t Break The BankOur children are angels deep down and we want them to have everything that they want, but sometimes leaving a room choice up to them probably isn’t the best use of money since they probably can’t foresee the same things that we can. A sophisticated hardwood bedroom set may not be exactly what your 11-year-old girl wants when Dora The Explorer is available, but she will come to appreciate it later on when she grows out of Dora The Explorer. There are ways that you can avoid the unhappy fits without putting hundreds of dollars of choice in their hands.
    Drawer Pulls
    Using the handles and little knick-knacks that their furniture has is exciting on a child’s level. Adding daisy flowers and pictures of their favorite cartoon characters are a great way to change it up and give them a sense of customization without giving them too much power. Check out some of our designs and see what your little one prefers. This is a little more fun for the family because it is something that can teach your child about how not everything should be taken the way it comes. It’s a great way to show how your child has control over their world.
    Ceiling Fans
    Having a colorful ceiling fan is fun for your child because it is a dynamic part of their room and adds colorful finesse and a sense of “coolness” especially if their room has multiple colors going on. The best parts is that when your child outgrows the style of the ceiling fan, changing the blades is as easy as unscrewing a couple of screws. Easy projects make the best customizations for your family!
    Bean Bags
    Beanbags are a heap of fun and give your child a unique sense of “Cool!” when they have playmates over for playtime. Beanbags are great because if you don’t like the design on them or if your little one outgrows the design, you can just buy a new skin to put the entire bag in to “grow up” their room a little more.
    Paint and Wallpaper
    Of course, the best way to make a huge impact on your child’s bedroom (and on them) is to surprise paint their room! Wouldn’t it be great to see the expression on their face when you change their room color to their favorite colors while they’re at school? It’s always great to play dumb and act like their room changed color on its own while they were away. It’s a fun way that mom and dad can enjoy an after noon together and an even more fun way to show your child how you listen to them and let them know that their opinion matters. Give your toddler a fun surprise this summer.
    These are all great ideas to bring into the lives of your children, but they can’t be done without your family working together and starting out by browsing our selection of furniture and getting a feel for what everybody likes. This summer, make a big change or prepare for a new one. The possibilities are only limited by you, so why not start now?

  • Using The Power Of Nostalgia

    kid's roomThere is something about that old rocking chair that your mother used to hold you in, which brings back memories. Whether you have one of these or not, it’s always a good idea to keep a piece of family furniture in your child’s bedroom to add a warm, loving touch to their day when things are tense at home.
    When your child has had a bad day, it is always nice for them to go to their room and reflect by themselves a bit. Why not have a small recliner in their room to calm them? Mom’s Bunk House has a wide selection of rocking chairs, recliners, beanbag chairs and other nifty furniture that can last over the years and beyond.
    These types of furniture have a great effect of remembrance and nostalgia, which always have positive effects on your child when they need a time-out or a few minutes by themselves. Recliners are built so sturdy these days that you can purchase one before your child is born to rock them to sleep and use it until they are totally grown. Fabric upholstery tends to last longer than leather if maintained, but leather is much easier to keep clean and maintain. Either way, both are excellent choices for your child’s room.
    Rockers are great as furniture and décor due to their ability to be customized, colored, and also graphics that truly reflect what your child holds interest in. The only drawback to this type of furniture is that unlike recliners, they lack certain sophistication due to their tendency to be very colorful and cartoon-like and if you don’t plan on buying more furniture in the near future, your child may grow out of this kind of furniture quickly. If is much easier to have your child grow into a style of furniture, because growing into sophistication adds value to their character, but having your child linger in a stage of their life could be detrimental to their character. It would be a bit silly to have a 14 year old still watching Dora The Explorer, which is a cartoon meant for children of a much younger age.
    Books are the on the forefront of learning, and regular reading should be established as young as possible. We have bookcases designed with their favorite characters to attract your child to read at a younger age than they would normally hold interest to. If you are interested in keeping your child’s room in a certain class, we also have solid wood bookcases that will instill a strong sense of calm and quiet in their room. Mom’s Bunk House also has varying sizes in bookcase sets to keep your boy or girl’s reading unlimited.
    Whether your children are just learning to express themselves or if they have been long overdue for a creativity overhaul, adding these furniture items to their room will greatly improve their mood and sense of belonging to your family.
    It is also a great family activity – unpacking and assembling furniture together. Structured events like this grant your child the opportunity to express their sense of interest and curiosity in putting things together as a team.
    If you have browsed our selection of furniture, be sure to check out your items and we will have them delivered to your home. If you haven’t yet seen our extensive collection of bunk beds and other furniture, check it out here!

  • 6 Important things to keep in your child’s bedroom

    Moms Bunkhouse Tips for improving your child's roomFurnishing a room for a child is a fun activity for everybody in the family and it helps your child express their interests and excitement. Your child’s room gives them a sense of belonging, control and sanctuary in their life. It is important for both you and your child to get the room furnished in a way that effectively gives them their sense of security. In this blog, we will give you a few inexpensive and important tips for having a perfect environment in your child’s room.

    A bed is the centerpiece of their room. There are few choices and decisions that children get to make in their childhood and this could be one of the biggest. Much of your child’s time will be spent either on or around their bed. A stylish and enjoyable bed will either greatly boost their confidence and security, or not.
    Lighting can also be a fun way to give your child’s room an exciting twist. Color-changing light bulbs and LED lights are an easy and inexpensive way to give their bedroom a neat look. Remote control lights give your child a sense of luxury and control, as opposed to traditional switch lighting.
    Study Area
    A study area is an easy way to add a fun factor to schooling and it gives your child a sense of pride when doing homework and school projects. It gives excitement to coming home from school and isolates your child’s mind from the wonders of the world while they are supposed to be focusing on schoolwork.
    Toy Storage
    A clean room is always preferred over a messy room (at least for parents). Toy storage is crucial to many aspects of your child’s character. Your child’s cleaning habits will be the strongest sign of their initiative, determination, and desire to present themselves in a clean and orderly fashion.
    Playtime is an important factor for your child’s health. Not just their physical health, but their mental health as well. Interaction with other children both outdoors and indoors becomes an avenue to strengthen your child’s social skills. These skills determine they way your kids will deal with tough situations such as conflict in the future and effectively formalize their attitude.
    Alarm Clock
    As your child’s parent, you can’t always be the sole source of authority for your child. When study time comes around, you should establish a period of time between 60 to120 minutes, which should be solely dedicated to studying. This period of time should be between the time that your child comes home from school, and the time that they are to be in bed. By contrast, you can’t always regulate everything that your child does. As they get older they need to develop an important sense of time, which is why an alarm clock is necessary. Not only restricted to waking up for school, but as a timekeeper. By having an alarm clock, your child is informed of when and how long they are to focus on their schooling while still giving leeway to their personal playtime.
    If you find that your child is due for an upgrade in their room, take a look at any of the many styles that Moms Bunkhouse offers and be sure to shop with your child to give them choice, excitement, and control in their life. Don’t let yourself be the micromanaging parent, and give your child a chance to express themselves. If you have more questions, pleas reach us through our contact page and we will gladly answer any questions that you may have.
