Bedrooms That Grow With Your Children


My husband is one of seven siblings consisting of 6 boys and 1 girl all now fully grown.My husband is the baby of the family and growing up he of course had to share with his brothers and his sister got her own room.They had a large 4 bedroom house but one of these was a tiny box room and my husbands sister was in one room and his parents in another.That left 6 boys in 2 rooms one of which was the box room so it was a tight squeeze.I myself never knew the struggle of fighting to see who got the top bunk as I am an only child and the only time I ever got to sleep in a bunk bed was when I went on school holidays.

My husband says about the bed situation growing up “In Barlow St. Mum &Dad room a double bed plus me in a drawer , Philip in a cot, the others in the other room Chris/Alan, Mark/Ian bunk beds, Anne in a single “

And of the larger 4 bedrooms house they moved in when my husband was a toddler he says “Osmaston Rd Mum & Dad in their room. Me Phil in bunk bed with Alan and Chris in singles in other, Mark/Ian in a bunk in the small room and Anne in a double in the last room “

So when his brothers and sister started to leave home getting your own bed was sheer luxury! So if you’re struggling where to put your little ones no matter how many you’ve got then why not check out this blog from Happy beds.It is important to have a bedroom that grows with your child as there is nothing more annoying that continually changing the furniture , I think the only think you really should have to be changing is the mattress and the decor eventually.

I can’t believe that my husband actually slept in a drawer ! I think my husbands parents would have loved one of these Happy Beds triple sleeper beds to maximise on floor space when it was not covered in toys that they hadn't put away.

Here is my husband with all his siblings and yes they are the ones in the background !
