Here at Mom’s Bunk House, as much as we love children’s beds, we know that getting your kids to get to sleep at a reasonable time can be a challenge! As much as you might love your children’s bedroom furniture, often times your little ones will resist bedtime in favor of playtime.
Although there’s no magic bullet for encouraging a good night’s sleep, making your children’s bedroom as fun and attractive as possible is always a great start. And although you might love classic designs and elegant furniture, sometimes kids just want something fun and unique.
A novelty bed is a great idea to help make your kids’ bedrooms more kid-friendly. These fun and unique bed designs add some wonderful flair to your kids’ bedroom, and are sure to help encourage your children to get a early night. In this post, we cover 3 classic novelty bed designs.
The Racecar Bed. A timeless kids’ classic, the racecar bed is a fun way for little boys (and girls too!) to live out their Formula 1 dreams in the safety and comfort of their own room. These beds have been around for years, and some in a range of fun styles and designs.
Teddy Bear Bed. It’s no secret that kids love their bears, and a Teddy Bear bed is a fun way to extend your kids’ love of all things plush into the bedroom. Suitable mostly for kids on the younger side of the spectrum, these beds are a great way to help youngsters feel safe and cozy at night.
Doll House Beds. For your little princess, the Doll House bed is a fun way to bring playtime fantasies to life. Usually styled in pink and pastels, these cute and fun novelty beds are a fun way for little girls to enjoy bedtime.
Although these 3 are some of the most popular novelty beds for kids, there’s many other fun designs available as well. The only downside of these beds is that as kids grow up, they’ll definitely be looking for something more adult. Your teenagers are probably more interested in driving a real racecar than a racecar bed, after all!

Here at Mom’s Bunk House, we talk a lot about furniture for kids - and we’re usually talking about school-aged children. However, we also carry a great selection of nursery furniture, and we know that for many new parents, furnishing a bedroom for your new baby can be a challenge.
Unlike an older child, an infant won’t have any furniture preferences! However, as a parent you know that you have to provide furniture that is safe, comfortable, and high-quality. You probably also want to try making your nursery as attractive and nicely designed as possible.
If you’re a new parent looking to get started with nursery design, furnishing, and decor, Mom’s Bunk House can help! We’ve taken off our “bunk bed” hat and slipped into baby mode! See below 3 nursery furniture basics that should help you get started…
Crib and bedding accessories. This will probably be your first step and is generally going to be the most important baby furniture purchase you make. The key thing to consider here is safety - crib safety standards change often, and there are many concerns to avoid. This is one purchase that you definitely don’t want to buy on the low end! Be sure to do your research and choose a crib that’s as safe as possible. You also want to shop for bedding for your new baby - you’ll probably need plenty of extras!
Changing table. This important piece of baby furniture will definitely be a convenience! You’ll be saving yourself constantly bending over, as well as helping to stay organized during a time that can be hectic. Changing tables can sometimes be surprisingly expensive - this ie one item that might make sense to shop around for. Just make sure to consider safety. Usually you’ll want to find a changing table that includes a lip to prevent your baby from rolling off.
A glider or rocker. These gliding and rocking chairs are a great way for mom and baby to relax together. This is a great furniture addition for any family with a baby that might be fussy or having a hard time sleeping.
We hope these tips will help you assemble a great room for your baby! There’s lots of other items to consider as well, but if you have these 3 items, you’ll be off to a great start!

It’s already February! While winter might still seem like it’s going strong, it’ll be spring before you know it, and it’s always good to start thinking about getting outdoors and getting active. While we’re usually focused on indoor furniture here at Mom’s, we also know that kids sometimes need to get out of the bedroom and get some exercise outdoors.
One of the best and most fun ways to encourage your kids to get some exercise is with an outdoor playset. These fun outdoor play structures often include things like swings, slides, and “treehouses”, and are a fun way for kids to play outdoors and use their imaginations.
While an outdoor playset is a great purchase for any family, it’s also important to make the right choice, and find a playset that will work best for your kids. In this post, we’ll cover a few tips for finding the perfect outdoor playset.
Make sure it’s age-appropriate. Different types of playsets will appeal to different ages. Your younger children might prefer sandboxes or rockers, while the older kids might prefer swings and slides. For families with multiple kids, you can think about a playset that combines multiple activities - free play for the younger kids, and more excitement for the older ones.
Make safety a priority. A high-quality playset will be designed for safety and durability. These modern outdoor playsets are carefully engineered to be as fun as possible, while eliminating risky elements like sharp edges or shaky foundations. Before making any decisions, always ensure that you’re buying from a reputable brand with a dedication to safety and quality.
Consider size and construction. Although a bigger playset might always seem better, you don’t want a huge construction monopolizing your backyard. Be sure to choose a playset that will fit nicely within your existing outdoor area. Also, consider how you’ll actually build the structure - larger playsets will require a little added work to built, so be sure to prepare for that project. (Involving your older kids in the building process can also be fun as well!)
Overall, an outdoor playset is a great way to encourage your kids to get active and enjoy the outdoors. Although kids today have lots of entertainment options, sometimes the classic backyard playtime is still the most fun choice for your children.
A child’s bed is probably the single most important furniture item in the room. After all, your kids are spending almost 1/3rd of their lives asleep, and so a safe and comfortable bed is key. However, once you’ve got a great bed that your kids love, what comes next?
There’s lots of options in furnishing your kids’ room. Everything from major items, to small decor pieces. So how do you decide what to focus on, once the bed’s sorted out? To help you get started in completing the kids’ bedroom, the children’s furniture experts here at Mom’s Bunk House have compiled a list of other items to consider.
Remember that sometimes, your choices will be influenced by your kids’ personalities. When you’re reviewing these ideas, be sure to consider what each of your children will love the most, based on their unique character.
A Great Bookshelf. Do your kids love to read? A bookshelf can be a great way to keep their growing book collection neat and organized. A nice bookshelf can also help encourage your kids to build a book collection to read regularly - which is great for success in school and learning in general!
Toy Boxes and Storage. Especially important for younger children, a great toy storage solution will help them stay organized and protect their favorite toys. This can also be a great way for parents to encourage neatness without too much nagging.
A Desk and Chair. These days, success at school requires a commitment to homework. While some might feel that kids are getting a little too much homework sometimes, a quality desk and chair will make it that much easier for your children to focus on getting their work done.
An Outdoor Playset. Alright, so this isn’t bedroom furniture, but it’s still important! Sometimes it’s a good idea to encourage your kids to get out of their bedrooms, and get some exercise and fresh air outdoors. A playset can be a great way to stimulate some good outdoor activity. Just make sure to purchase a set that is safe and high quality.
Hopefully these ideas can help get your started in completing the kids’ room. Remember that choosing furniture isn’t a trivial choice - what your children have in their rooms can really influence their lifestyles growing. By thinking about your furniture choices and building a room your kids love, you’ll be setting them up for success down the road.
Choosing a bed for your kids is an important decision. After all, we spend almost one-third of our lives in bed, and making those hours comfy is important! Also, getting a great night’s sleep is very important for keeping your kids’ academic and social performance strong.
However, parents in the market for a new bed know that there are many options available. Making the right decision can be tough when presented with so many choices. To help you and your family understand your options, the team of experts here at Mom’s Bunk House has put together a quick and simple guide to the types of children’s beds.
Bunk Beds. Our speciality at Mom’s Bunk House, the bunk bed is a kids’ room classic and a great choice for families with siblings and space concerns. A bunk bed is a great way to save space in the kids’ room while still making everyone comfortable. If you have multiple children, and want to keep them both happy in the same room, a bunk bed is the ideal choice. When selecting the perfect bed, make sure that you get sizes suitable for your family, and that you invest in quality and safety above everything else.
Loft Beds. If bunk beds are the ideal space-saver for siblings, then loft beds are a similar choice for children with their own rooms. A loft bed is typically like a bunk bed without a bottom bunk - the child sleeps on top, leaving room at the bottom for a desk, cabinet, or other furniture. This space-saving solution leaves your kids’ room with loads of extra space for everything they need, without compromising on sleep comfort.
Sleigh Beds. This type of bed usually includes a curved or scrolled foot and headboards, resembling the look of a sleigh. They’re an attractive and stylish choice for families that aren’t necessary seeking to save too much space. Sleigh beds are typically very solidly constructed and long-lasting, making them great hand-me-downs as well.
Captain's Beds. This type of bed usually features drawers or other storage solutions underneath. This can be a great solution for adding more storage space to your kids’ room, without taking up extra room or having to buy another piece of furniture. Like sleigh beds, these beds have the benefit of being very solidly built and long lasting.
We hope that reading through these options has helped you get a better understanding of your options for a new kids’ bed. Of course, each of these major types has many options for customization, but understanding these major categories is the first big step towards finding the perfect bed for your family.
Everyone wants to have a well-furnished and comfortable home, both for themselves and their families. But outfitting your home successfully isn’t easy - you need to balance costs, comfort, style, durability, sizes, and many other factors.
This is especially true when furnishing a room for your children, since you’ve got to manage all of these challenges, while also making sure your kids are happy - not an easy job!
When trying to assemble a kid’s bedroom, you need to think carefully about how to get the most from your efforts. However, you’ve also got to be careful to avoid a mistake that could be expensive and time-consuming. To help keep you on the right track, the team here at Mom’s has put together 3 common mistakes to avoid in furnishing a bedroom.
Going too far over or under your budget. Budgeting for kids’ furniture is tricky - if you spent too much on an individual piece, you may run out of money before the project is complete. On the other hand, very cheap furniture won’t last as long, look as good, or be as safe. The best advice is to try aiming down the middle - get the best you can afford, but only within the context of a well-planned overall budget.
Forgetting about the little things. Of course you’ll need a bed, a desk, a shelf, and so on. Everyone remembers the big and important furniture elements. But often, small bedroom accessories can have a major impact on the overall look and feel of a room. When making your plans, be sure to think of little things like area rugs, drawer pulls, ceiling fans, toy boxes, and other little items. Putting a small portion of budget and effort into these details will make a real difference.
Not getting the kids involved. Remember - the room’s for them! While your little ones might not be managing the budget or planning the designs, they still know what they like, and making a room they’ll love should always be a priority. Remember also that if you just buy and set everything up without them, your kids won’t appreciate the expense and effort as much.
We hope these tips will help you out! And remember that while planning a whole new room for your kids isn’t an easy project, the rewards of happy children and beautiful home will be more than worth it!
We hope you’re having a great start to 2014! The start of a new year is always a great time to set some goals for you and your family over the coming year. While many people might be renewing gym memberships and catching up on correspondence, here at Mom’s Bunk House, we’re thinking about furniture!
Creating an attractive and comfortable bedroom for your children is a great way to ensure that 2014 is a happy and productive year for your whole family. A child who feels comfortable in their room has a great advantage in life, and a family with a well furnished home can feel proud of their lifestyle.
In the spirit of new year’s resolutions, the team at Mom’s Bunk House has assembled a list of 3 great ideas for improving your furnishings for the new year.
Start the new year off with a great sleep. Well rested children perform better in school, and have more energy for activities. Additionally, a child who loves their bed is less resistant to an early bedtime as well. A new bed or bunk for your children is a great way to ensure that they start 2014 off with a spring in their steps.
Equip the bedroom for homework success. We all know that today’s children are bringing home heavy homework assignments. Setting up a comfortable desk and chair for your child is a wonderful way to help them focus on their work and get the job done. After-school studies are key to academic success, and a comfy work environment will put your children ahead of the game.
Get the details right. When it comes to bedroom decor, sometimes the details can make all the difference. If you’re looking to add a little polish to your 2014 decorating, consider a new room fan, fun drawer pulls, a cute area rug, accent furniture, and other small details that will help make your kids’ room feel comfortable and complete.
These are just a few ideas for making the new year a great year for your children. Of course, you’ll also want to think about more standard resolutions, like getting more active, focusing on academics, and spending time with family. From the whole team here at Mom’s, we wish you a very happy and successful new year.

Another challenge that parents face in Christmas gift buying is finding gifts that are functional, as well as fun. While kids might be most interested in the latest toys and gadgets, parents know that often this year’s hot gift is broken or forgotten within a few months.
Instead of spending the gift budget on quickly-forgotten trinkets, some parents might prefer to invest in presents that will last. At Mom’s Bunk House, we carry a great range of kids furniture products that children will love, and that will also provide long-lasting value. If you’re still hunting for that great gift, check out a few options below -
A New Bed. Your kids spend almost 1/3rd of their lives asleep. But parents know that beds are for more than just sleeping - games, schoolwork, and sleepovers all rely on a comfy, quality bed. A new kids bed for Christmas is a great way to help your kids sleep better and love their bedrooms even more. You can even consider a novelty kids bed, for that added surprise and fun.
Furniture Upgrades. Whatever your kids are into, there’s a furniture piece that will make their interests come alive. For the studious child, consider a new table and desk set. For little readers, a new bookcase can help organize their collection of favorites. And for kids who just love to “chill out”, a couch, recliner, or bean bag chair makes bedrooms a great place to relax.
Outdoor Playsets. Do your kids love playtime? Or maybe you’re hoping to get your family more active for the new year? Nothing says active fun like an outdoor playset! Swings, slides, and jungle gyms make a fun addition to your backyard, and will encourage your kids to stay active.
We hope these ideas help you out in finding a Christmas gift that’s both fun and practical. In our experience, a quality piece of furniture will provide fun and value for long after today’s fads have faded and been forgotten. Whatever you decide to do this Christmas, the team at Mom’s Bunk House wishes you a happy and safe holiday. Merry Christmas!
