Design a Dream bed with Silentnight

When I was a child I always wanted a cabin bed, or a high sleeper bed, with some kind of secret area underneath. It was my absolute dream, and I can remember walking around the department store looking at fancy beds and thinking of ways I could change them to make them more fun. I never did get the bed I wanted so badly, but it never stopped me dreaming.

These days, I often find myself browsing through Pinterest, and there are some amazing bed creations... Tree house beds, pirate ships, princess castles, lego beds, you name it, I'm sure there is a bed designed like it. I think if you had shown me these beds as a child I would have died in excitement!

Silentnight are asking children to design their ultimate dream bed, and I thought it would be a fun thing to do with the kids. Earlier in the week, ( after a lot of thought about what they would like) armed with a pack of crayons, some blank paper and a lot of imagination, we sat down and started creating!

Caitlin's Dream Bed Includes:

  • A slide
  • Some swings
  • A special room for the cats
  • A place where she could keep all of her toys
 

Neil's Dream Bed Includes:
  • A gaming area
  • A cat bed
  • A ladder to climb up to space, with a wall around the sun so he doesn't get burned
  • A stove to keep him warm
 

 
The kids were very happy with what they had come up with and were quite disappointed to find out that we were not actually creating the beds they had designed. They came up with some fabulous ideas, who wouldn't want a ladder to space on their bed?! I thought it was very cute that both of them wanted to include a little area for the cats in their bed, I'm sure that cats would have loved that since I always find them snuggled up on the kids bunks!
 
I've made a little vlog where you can find out all about the children's ideas, watch them turn their thoughts in to designs and give us a walk through of their dream beds...
