Variety of bed arrangements suit summer sleepovers for kids
May 31 2011
With summer approaching, children may want to invite sleepover guests more frequently.
A number of convertible beds and other sleeping arrangements can be used for children visiting for a sleepover.
There are a host of ways that parents can make youngsters feel comfortable and work some fun into the sleeping arrangements. For instance, setting up a tent and air mattresses allows children to pretend they are camping out.
Just as rooms do double duty when guests arrive, so do some furniture pieces. There are ottomans on casters that convert into small, camp beds with foam mattresses. Convertible beds have been available for many years, but now come in a variety of sizes. Reading chair-size convertibles are particularly well-suited to young guests.
Some sleeping bags come equipped with pumps to create an instant air mattress, and there are well-padded mats that come in bed-in-a-bag styles. "Perfect for sleepovers or as simple and portable occasional furniture, [these] 'ready-beds' are available in a range of designs for boys and girls and there are several options to suit everyone’s budget," according to Children'sRooms.org.
Roller shades for windows are versatile coverings that will fit any décor even when the room's function changes to accommodate an occasional visitor. They come in a wide range of colors, fabrics and patterns that work well with both contemporary and traditional furnishings.
