From toddler bed to big girl bed // My top 5 bed choices

The time has finally come for us to upgrade kiddo's bed from a toddler bed to a proper big girls' bed and what an exciting transition this is going to be! Miss E has slept in a Mamas & Papas Rialto cotbed since she was a baby, it's one of those that converts into a toddler bed and honestly, she loves that bed so much! At almost 4 years old though, she has definitely outgrown it and the hunt is on for a quality piece of furniture that will last her for years to come.

Our requirements are pretty simple. We're looking for a bed that is modern, versatile and well made. Preferably with a tonne of storage underneath (does anyone else have a child who hoards soft toys like there's no tomorrow?!). 

There are so many lovely beds out there though, it's hard to know which one to pick! So to help me decide, I've put together a list of my top five choices. All of them are stunning and I am having a hard time making the final decision! 

So please, let me know which one is your favourite in a comment below! 

1. Mode Wild West Teepee Bed // £354.50 // Link

This bed is just magical, isn't it?! A super fun den-bed, the perfect place for both rest and play. I just know that kiddo would love snuggling up with her favourite stories in here! What I love about this bed is that the roof can be detached when you no longer require it and you can also purchase a large underbed storage drawer which would be perfect for spare bedding, toys, etc! 

2. Ikea Hemnes bed frame with 2 storage boxes // £220 // Link

Why do I love this bed? Well, not just because of the price! This bed comes with two large storage boxes underneath.... perfect for toys, clothes, spare bedding, etc! The design is simple, sophisticated and will go with any decor scheme. It also has adjustable bed sides which allow you to use mattresses of different thicknesses. 

3. Ercol Devon single bed // £595 // Link

We have a lot of Ercol furniture in our home so we already know just how good the quality is! Built to last, sturdy and super stylish. This simple two tone bed would be the perfect addition to our home and would last kiddo for years to come. 

4. Classic mid sleeper bed from The White Company // £1299 // Link

I am pretty sure that this bed is the dream! Heaps of storage that will free up space elsewhere in the bedroom and designed with simplicity in mind. Kiddo would love climbing the ladder to get into bed (whenever we have bunk beds on holiday, one of her favourite things to do is to climb up and down the ladders!). I also like that the bed has a rail along the edge, no chance of kiddo rolling out in the night!

5. Mazeballs kids' storage bed from Loaf // £695 // Link

I flipping love Loaf. Everything about this brand is just my cup of tea so it's no surprise that I love their Children's range too! The Mazeballs bed comes with a set of storage baskets that have been woven from recycled magazines. These baskets slot neatly underneath the bed and they would be perfect for storing kiddo's 10 billion soft toys! The bed itself is simple, study looking and would look beautiful in any bedroom!

Which of these beds do you like best? And how did you make the transition from toddler bed to full size bed? Let me know in a comment below!
