Consider A Floor Bed

This pretty bed we spotted over at Bloesem Kids got us thinking. Why don’t more parents use floor beds? Floor beds are de rigueur in Montessori households where babies often sleep in beds instead of cribs.

Once children are old enough to sleep in a big kid bed, there is always the worry that they will fall out in the middle of the night, hence the (not so attractive) bed rail market. So whether babies, toddlers, preschoolers, or beyond, Montessori or not, a floor bed makes good sense for young ones. Of course you could always use a mattress directly on the floor, but we like the look of a bedframe and headboard. You can see more photos of this child’s room over at Bloesem Kids where Valentina from Design Per Bambini is guest posting.
