Buying kids’ beds online SHOULD be a straightforward process. Point, click, card details, deliver. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always end up being that easy. We’ve all been there! The bed arrives, and it doesn’t the space. The colours you thought you saw online are way different now they’re in front of you. A design that looked like a great idea on paper is a disaster in practice. There are MANY things that can go awry in the lead up to delivery day and on the big day itself. Here’s what to prepare for when buying kids’ beds online.
In carpentry the saying is measure twice, cut once. When it comes to buying kids’ beds online, we like to say “measure ten times, order once”. You’ll save a lot of unnecessary tears and angst if you ensure that your purchase will be fit for the space. You might have to make adjustments to your ultimate kids’ furniture vision if you’ve got a hard to fit space. A clever choice is to purchase a kids’ bed online that serves a dual purpose. A bed with in-built shelving at the end will eliminate the need for a bookshelf, for example, giving you back some much-needed floor space.
We recommend letting your children be part of the purchasing process. This will allow them to feel excited about how their choice will help shape their own space. Get the go ahead on colour and style (with parent veto power in place, of course) and you’ll have all little hands on deck when it comes to delivery.
Make sure you’re dealing with a company who actually care about their clients! Their website should have bright, clear images so you’ll get no surprises on delivery day and they should have a transparent delivery process. When that day comes, you’ll need to ensure that there is good access available and that there’s a plan in place for a rainy day (literally). Safety comes first and you’ll want to make sure that the beautiful product you purchased online is treated kindly on its way into your home!
