Modern Design Ideas

Love this Modern Platform Bed by Coaster!

When I first came across the Cappuccino Phoenix Full/Double Platform Bed by Coaster it was love at first sight! After learning all about its amazing features including the headboard with 6 shelves and several bottom drawers, plus the modern design that creates quite a contemporary looking kid’s bedroom I was sure I was really in LOVE!

Phoenix platform bed by CoasterIf my kids didn’t have beds in their rooms already this would totally be my pick! It’s obvious why I decided to feature this platform bed in the modern design category…it’s because of its modern look and modern functionality! I also LOVE it because it’s a full size bed, so two kids could sleep there if needed or you could put this bed in a guest bedroom when your child is off to college.

Today’s modern kids would go totally nuts with a bed like this in their room and you would be thrilled too, since things would most likely, “fingers crossed” stay neat and tidy because of all the storage spaces.

And guess what…this beautiful kids bed has a matching desk and hutch, with chair that you can also include in the room to give your child everything he/she needs. I give Coaster five stars for creating this gorgeous and functional modern kids bed!

Tips on Transforming a Kid’s Room to a Teen Space

When kids turn thir-TEEN strange and crazy things start to happen. They instantly develop new opinions on just about everything including kids bedroom design. Most teens crave a change at that point and expect mom and dad to foot the bill.

If you’re reading this you’ve been forewarned and can prepare, early on, for your teen’s demand for a new and improved space, so that when the time comes you don’t have to shell out too much of the green stuff.

Famous interior designer Kyle Schuneman shares some really clever design tips on how to transform a kids bedroom into a teen’s room by using the same kids furniture in a new way. After you watch the following clip make sure to read below to check out some of our extra tips on setting up a kid’s bedroom that your child can enjoy till adulthood.

Kyle started off by showing how to use storage cubbies for keeping baby books and toys in order then transforming the cubbies into a base for a kids desk. I thought that was pretty brilliant. Here’s my spin on that same idea using some of the kids furniture we offer.

Badger Basket Two Bin Storage Cubby
You could get several Badger Basket Two Bin Storage Cubbies in your choice of blue, red or espresso and stack then as high as you want to offer your child lots of storage options. Then when your youngster reaches the teens, take those same cubbies, stack them two or three high then create that same type of kids desk that Kyle suggested by getting a shelf from a local hardware store and painting it a matching or coordinating color and laying it across the top of the stacked cubbies.

The next super cool idea that Kyle suggested was to take a locker and turn it into a nightstand. Considering that lockers may not be everyone’s “thing” I’d recommend getting the DaVinci 6 Piece Complete Storage Cabinet in Espresso that can offer the same versatility and storage, but is sure to look great in any space. This six piece unit comes with individual storage pieces including a base unit, two door hutch and open hutch to offer hidden and open storage spaces. Each piece can be stacked to create any type of storage area your child needs. They can also be separated, using two bases on top of each other to create a handy nightstand for your teen’s bedside. The additional cubbies can be added to a dresser top or hung on a wall.

The thought of using a toy box as a shoe box was a great idea, but I took it one step further. Why not get the KidKraft Wood Toy Box Chest in either White, Black or Honey and use it to store toys during your child’s toddler years then shoes or books later on, plus use it as a bench through your kid’s teen years. You could even add a plush cushion up top for extra comfort and put it at the end of the bed or under a window to offer your teen a great reading seat.
