There’s nothing quite as exciting as a sleepover with your best friends. Oodles of snacks, a movie marathon and the thrill of staying up late chatting! There’s equally nothing more tedious than blowing up airbeds for impromptu sleepovers and rearranging your furniture to make space for little house guests, so we’ve outlined some tips below to create the ultimate space for sleepovers, so that you don’t have to reinvent your space every time your children have their friends over!
Dibs on the Top Bunk!
The obvious choice for fuss-free sleeping arrangements is a kids’ bunk bed. Saving valuable floor space, a bunk bed requires minimal effort to get set up for your child’s sleepover buddy.
Does your little one have multiple guests? The Natty Maxi Bunk Bed is the definition of #SleepoverGoals: this triple sleeper also has the option for a storage staircase, perfect for storing extra bedding!
Lounge-worthy Loft Beds
Loft Beds are also a versatile option for sleepovers with space underneath the bed providing plenty of opportunities to suit your child. Adding a small sofa bed will make a cosy spot for reading day-to-day, but when it’s sleepover time, the sofa can be pulled out into a bed for your extra guest!
The Trusty Trundle
A trundle bed will be your best friend in the world of hosting sleepovers. This clever storage hack can either be used to house occasional bedding and blankets, or with the addition of a mattress can become another kids’ bed for guests!
A Cosy Fortress
An essential sleepover ingredient – a fort or den! Sleepovers are all about being cosy, so make sure your little one’s bedroom houses the components of a fort fit for a King or Queen. Our beautiful Toy Box or Tidy Toy Box have ample space to house pillows and blankets and will suit all bedroom styles with their clean, minimal design.
Home from Home
Sleepovers can be a daunting prospect for children who haven’t spent time away from home before. You can help them feel at ease by making their space a home from home. Provide a place to hang their stuff, like our Tidy Clothing Rack. You could hang up a sleepover goody bag for them with a cosy blanket, slippers and popcorn for a personal touch.
Even as adults we can have those strange moments where we wake up disorientated with no clue where we are… so it’s not surprising that children might find it hard to navigate their friend’s bedrooms in the dark. It’s a good idea to provide a warm soothing nightlight for comfort.
There you have it, a guide to creating the ultimate bedroom for sleepovers! Inspired by the idea of a loft bed? Take a look at other ways to utilise this versatile kids bed over on the Boori Nest Blog.
