Choosing a Bed for My Daughter



girl bed
There are lots of things to consider when purchasing a new bed. Who will it be for? What kind of mattress will you need? Will you need a frame or headboard? How much room do you have for a bed?

The next bed I will be purchasing will be for my daughter. She is 5 and is still using her crib that has been converted to a toddler bed. I still haven’t decided what kind of bed to get for her when she grows too tall to use her current bed. If her room is big enough, I may go with a small double bed since her crib can also convert to a headboard that will fit it.

There are other things I need to consider though. She would love to have some character bedding (probably Hello Kitty or Frozen) and it may be easier to find that for a twin bed.

Also, room size will be a big issue. She has tons of toys (what kid doesn’t?), more than I really want her to have so she needs the space in her room for those. We will also be moving soon and I don’t know how large her bedroom will be in the new place.

For those two reasons, I think I will choose from the wide variety of single beds with mattresses that are available to choose from.

Of course, that still leaves me with choosing the headboard and frame style. She will probably try to insist on a character bed but I can bet that bed will be more of a play place than a sleeping place. I will also need to consider if she needs a shelf on her headboard or will have a side table next to her bed. I wasn’t much older than her when I started needing glasses and the shelf would be a great place for those as well as an alarm clock.

Either way, I am sure we will find something we all can agree on. Is there anything else you considered the last time you purchased a bed?

Real Estate Customer Life Cycle



Did you know any of these facts? How often do you shop for groceries? I do a main grocery shopping trip each week but end up at the store for odds and ends every couple days. I suppose it helps that I work at Target now and just shop after work. I think it’s really interesting that Americans buy a house every 13 years and that the average first time homebuyer is 31 years old. Thanks to NEC Online Degrees for sharing this awesome information with us! Which fact do you find most surprising?
