There are a number of reasons why loft-style kids beds Brisbane have always been a favourite for kids and parents alike. Not only does your child get to enjoy sleeping high above the ground as if they’re in a top bunk, but there is also ample space below the bed that can be used for a number of different purposes, such as for storage, as a study space, or as a play space.
It’s important to do your research when purchasing loft-style kids beds Gold Coast, however, to ensure that your child will be safe when in his or her bed. Here are some important points to consider:
The Safety Rails On Childrens Beds
When choosing loft-style kids beds Brisbane or kids beds Gold Coast, bring a ruler or tape measure as you’ll want to make sure that the safety rails that are provided on the bed rise, at a minimum, 13 centimeters (or 5 inches) above the mattress. Any lower and you risk the chance of your child rolling or falling over that rail.
Before committing to any childrens beds, test the ladder to make sure that it’s properly outfitted for the frame of your child’s loft bed. Check that it’s secure and cannot become dislodged as your child climbs up and down to their bed (ideally the ladder will be screwed right into the bed).
The Weight Capacity
Make sure that before you buy any kids beds Gold Coast that you check and double check the weight capacity of the bed. Keep in mind that the mattress as well as the foundation needs to be taken into account when it comes to a bed’s weight capacity, so if your child currently weights 75lbs or more and the weight capacity is 125lbs, it’s a good idea to move on and look at a different loft bed that can accommodate the weight of your growing youngster.
