Size guide - Canopy beds
What size bed should I choose?
You may have already figured out what type of bed your child should sleep in, but are you still unsure about what size bed will fit best in your home? Here are some considerations you should make:
- How big is the child who will be using the bed?
- How big is the room where the bed will be?
Whether you should choose a 70x160 cm bed or a 90x200 cm bed depends on the child who will be sleeping in the bed. It is recommended that the bed is 20 cm longer than the child who will be sleeping in it. It is also said that the bigger the bed you choose, the longer your child can use it. However, you should make sure that your child feels comfortable sleeping in such a big bed.
The size 70x160 cm is good for the smaller child. It can be reassuring to sleep in a bed that is not much bigger than oneself. It is a popular size that many choose to use between the crib and the big bed.
The size 90x200 cm is good for the slightly bigger child or for children who are comfortable with having plenty of space around them when they sleep. Many choose the larger size because there is plenty of room to grow and therefore the bed can be used for a longer time.
When we talk about the sizes 70x160 cm and 90x200 cm, it is also good to remember that these sizes are mattress sizes and therefore not the measurements of the bed itself. The exact measurements can be found under each bed.
