A captain’s bed is a popular choice for kids’ furniture. It is a specific type of platform bed that comes with important storage elements as part
of the furniture. Captains’ beds are great in secondary rooms that are smaller in nature because they come with extra storage elements that you then
would not need to purchase separately. Sometimes the extra nightstand or shelf can take up a lot of space. Also, the extra few drawers the captain’s
bed comes with can be the perfect amount of extra drawer space for your kid’s clothes.
The concept of a captains bed comes from where you might think; the captain of a ship. On ships, all space is critical and a bed by itself is not practical.
As a result, placing a bed on a platform and including various shelves and drawers can help make the bed more practical. They utilize small space well.
At Wayfair, we have a handful of captains’ beds to choose from.
Captain’s Bed: Because a captain’s bed is very much a piece of furniture, you’re going to have the standard furniture finishes to choose from. An unfinished
twin captain’s bed results in a clean look for your kid’s bedroom. You could also choose to paint the bed a color of your choice. The bookshelves at the head of the bed allow for extra storage or potential items you put on a
nightstand such as an alarm clock.
Twin Captain’s Bed: Twin is the most common size for a captain’s bed. Because they are usually placed in secondary rooms with limited space, the adaption
of twin captain’s bed has become much more popular compared to other bed sizes. Remember the twin mattress size is 38 inches wide and 75 inches tall.
Since the captains bed is a piece of furniture that the mattress fits on top of, it is going to be a bit bigger than that. Whichever one you choose, be
sure to review the dimensions. Some captain’s beds come with an additional trundle bed like the one on the left. This can be a great addition to a house
where there are a lot of guests staying over. It is also helpful when your children begin having sleepovers with friends.
Full Size Captain’s Bed: A full size captain’s bed is also a popular option. They can
likely use this bed all the way through high school and into college. This is also a great option for a secondary bedroom in your home as you will provide
your guests with a comfortable and pleasant experience with plenty of room to put their belongings. Full size mattresses are 53 inches tall and 75 inches
long so a full size captains bed will be a bit bigger than those dimensions. It is important to measure the space you have and compare it to the captain’s
bed you choose because since they extend a bit over the length and width of a normal size bed frame, you might need more space than you think.
