The difference between a mid sleeper and a high sleeper

With so many bed solutions on offer it can be difficult to know where to start when shopping for your little one. We often get asked ‘what is the difference between a mid sleeper and a high sleeper’ so we thought we’d share the main differences right here for you. 


Mid Sleeper

The difference between a mid sleeper and a high sleeperYou can find mid sleepers beds with built-in pull out desks, bookshelves and drawers, all fitted underneath for you and your young ones to utilise the full space available in their bedroom. Sitting at just the right height to allow plenty of storage or room for play underneath, our mid sleepers and cabin bed range are jam-packed with loads of exciting features, our kids’ mid sleeper bed collection makes the perfect combination of sleep and play. 


Mid sleepers that incorporate essential storage and furniture reduce the need for additional furniture in your kids bedrooms. Meaning you can optimise how your kids use their room and incorporate more functional space whatever that need may be. 


High sleeper

High sleepers, as the name suggests are elevated beds with a lot of space underneath due to the height the bed is

 from the ground. With so much space underneath high beds can have anything from desks and wardrobes, to sofa and pull out beds as additional features. 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. 


High sleeper can often come with a sofa that transforms into a bed or have a pull out third bed with extra space, so there is plenty of space for your kids to enjoy with friends, siblings and cousins for years to come. High sleepers allow you to neatly store away any additional storage requirements meaning that they won’t take up any extra space and provide that much needed additional space. 


Which is better?

The difference between a mid sleeper and a high sleeperThis is completely down to personal preference and the needs and requirements of your child. Some kids might love the idea of a midsleeper to drift off in each night or other children might suit a high sleeper that can grow with them thanks to the additional space. There isn’t a better solution, it simply comes down to your child and the space you have to work with. 


In this day and age storage is often top of people’s list when it comes to bedroom furniture. As homes typically become smaller, space is definitely something to think about when considering the difference between a mid sleeper and a high sleeper. 


Versatility is key 

When choosing a bed it is important to pick something that is versatile and will grow with the needs of your child. Take time to think about storage solutions, bedroom layouts and how well the bed will age with your child. 


Sometimes a child may crave a bunk bed but if they are already shooting up in height then it may be worth considering a mid sleeper so your child is not having to battle reduced head height on the top bunk. 


It is always important to choose a bed that will work for your child now and as they grow. At Kids Beds Online we are always here to help you make the big decision a little bit easier.
