Confused about all the fancy children's beds out there? Don't worry, we've got you covered! In this guide, we'll explain the difference between a cabin bed, mid sleeper, and high sleeper, helping you find the perfect choice for your child.

Cabin Beds: The Ultimate Storage Solution

Cabin Beds are ideal for smaller bedrooms and offer the best built-in storage options. With under-bed drawers that are built into the base of the bed, they provide ample space for storing your children's clothes or toys. Say goodbye to cluttered rooms!

These beds are slightly higher than regular single beds but lower than both mid-sleepers and high-sleepers. They don't require a ladder, making them a great choice for younger children who aren't quite ready for climbing. At The Children's Furniture Company, we offer a wide range of cabin beds with various storage configurations to suit your needs.

Pros and Cons of a Cabin Bed


  • Plenty of useful built-in storage (or enough space to add your own)
  • Suitable for a wider age range, from younger kids to teens
  • Lower and more accessible height for children and parents


  • Less open space underneath the bed, limiting options
  • Might have a bit less wow-factor compared to mid or high sleepers

Mid Sleepers: The Perfect Compromise

Mid Sleepers are a great option when you need something in between a regular single bed and a high sleeper. They are perfect for rooms with lower ceilings and smaller spaces. If your child wants a high sleeper but isn't quite big enough yet, a mid sleeper is the ideal compromise.

Suitable for children aged 4 and over, mid sleepers offer all the fun and flexibility of a higher bed while still providing a safe place to sleep for younger ones. The open space underneath the bed can be transformed into a cozy den, a study area, or extra storage.

Pros and Cons of Mid Sleepers


  • The chance to customize the under-bed space with free-standing furniture options
  • More accessible for parents compared to high sleepers
  • Suitable for ages 4 and above


  • Lower height compared to high sleepers, limiting the use of under-bed space

High Sleepers: Maximize Vertical Space

High Sleepers are the ultimate space-saving solution for children's bedrooms. They allow you to maximize the use of available space by creating extra room for larger furniture items underneath. Perfect for small rooms, high sleepers are a hit with kids of all ages.

With a larger open space underneath, high sleepers offer endless possibilities. You can set up a study area, a spare bed or sofa bed, storage cupboards, a bookshelf, or even a walk-in wardrobe. Some high sleepers, like the Neutron, even come with stairs that double as storage drawers. The sky's the limit with high sleepers!

Pros and Cons of High Sleepers

  • The ability to create a super-cool den
  • Great for hanging curtains or fairy lights


  • Not suitable for younger children; ages 6 and above only
  • Making the bed and tucking in can be a bit more challenging
  • Requires careful consideration of ceiling height and ladder access

Before Buying Your Child's Bed

When choosing between a cabin bed, mid sleeper, or high sleeper, consider the following factors:

Storage: Kids accumulate a lot of stuff, so think about the additional storage they will need, such as under-bed drawers or trundle options.

Fun: Beds can be more than just a place to sleep. They can serve as magical play areas for younger kids or private spaces for reading and relaxation for older kids and teens. Make sure the bed offers enough space for their imagination to run wild.

Practicality: Consider the size of the bed and how it fits into the room, taking into account doors, windows, and other furniture. Also, ensure that the bed is easily accessible for your children and leaves enough room to play and move around.

Safety: While children often prefer higher beds, safety should always come first. Take into account the ease of climbing in and out of the bed and ensure it is suitable for your child's age. At The Children's Furniture Company, we prioritize safety and durability in our designs.
