With over a year of chaos and constant disruption, we all deserve a rest and some relaxation time this summer. Relaxation for you and relaxation for your kids may have two completely different meanings, however, whatever you do, it doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. We’ve pulled together some of our simple summer holiday hacks for you to have a go at this year.
Whether you’re setting up camp in the back garden, travelling 5 miles away to the local camping hotspot or travelling across the country to pitch up, camping is a brilliant activity for all the family. Camping is a really affordable way to take the kids away during the summer holidays as pitches are reasonably priced and you can take everything you need with you.
If you don’t have a tent, look at hiring a glamping pod or borrowing a tent from a friend for the weekend. One thing is for sure though, you and your kids will cherish your beds when you get home after sleeping on the hard floor or lump travel mattresses. Summer holiday fun isn't always comfy!

Mid sleepers and high sleepers both offer sleeping solutions that are raised off the ground and are higher than your typical kid's bed.
A high sleeper, as the name suggests, is an elevated bed with a lot of space underneath due to the height the bed is from the ground. With so much space underneath high beds are often designed with desks, wardrobes, sofa and pull out beds. There’s a lot of versatility with high sleepers which allows you to incorporate a lot of essential furniture without impacting on vital floor space.
In comparison, a mid sleeper is typically mid-height between a traditional bed and a high sleeper. It typically has a shorter ladder or built-in steps to access the bed so is an ideal solution for younger children who may not be confident enough to safely use the ladders of a high sleeper. Mid sleepers are a popular solution thanks to their inbuilt storage solutions, pull out desks and play solutions depending on the needs of your child.
Storage: high sleepers v mid sleepers
Both options provide maximum storage solutions with multifunctional solutions that can be changed and adapted as your child grows up. You can shop for beds based on the...
The summer months are the easiest time to update and transform your kid's bedroom. The lighter nights, warmer weather and sunny mood make transforming your kid's bedroom a bit easier, especially if you’re working hard to get it done after a long day at work.
When updating any kids bedroom it is beneficial to design and adapt a bedroom that allows your child to comfortably grow and work with their interests for the next few years. Consider passions they have, overall interests and practical solutions that will work as they grow. Will they need more storage? Where will they do their homework? Will your kids need to share rooms with siblings? All of these things are ideas to consider when revamping and upgrading their bedroom. Here’s our guide to a summer bedroom update to get you started:
Invest in the essentials
If you get the essential elements of any bedroom right then everything else will fit in perfectly. From the wardrobe to the bed, you must pick something that will last and can quite possibly be passed down to younger siblings as one child grows out of their needs. For example, a hard-wearing mid sleeper can last a child well into their...
