Creative Kids’ Beds are the Ultimate Playhouses

Bedtime just got a whole lot more exciting with these amazing kids’ beds by the designers at the Belgian company Mathy by Bols. With unique designs such as a tent, caravan, and cabin, these beds are a perfect combination of sleeping quarters and playhouse that demonstrate Mathy by Bols’ key words of “creativity, versatility, and flexibility.”

The tent bed has a flap that swings up to reveal a cozy interior, bringing to mind the experience of camping outdoors. The caravan bed, shaped like a modern trailer or car, has playful cutouts that allow the child to peek outside and the parents to peek inside. The cabin bed, made out of playfully uneven planks, is the spitting image of the perfect treehouse, complete with a little ladder.

Not only are the beds aesthetically striking, but they’re extremely functional, too. Interior lights and bookshelves can transform the bed into a study corner or cozy reading nook. Shelves that pull out from under the bed can serve as storage space or even an extra trundle bed. With both form and function, these creative beds are sure to delight both parents and kids.
