Girls have an option that boys don't have as they get older, and this is to have a canopy bed, with the curtains hanging on the rods above. For a girl, this would seem like they have the bed of a princess, but for a boy, they would feel like they were a girl in a bed like this. There are daybeds, as well, which are typically not a boy's favorite type of bed. There are many different types of toddler beds as well, such as racecar beds, and for girls there are princess beds and more. Toddler beds are always made slightly differently than regular beds, so you will want to make sure the kids bedding is specifically made for that type of bed, as well as pick bedding to match it.
Toddler Beds - If your child is making the transition from cot to toddler bed you will probably want to look for a bed that sits low to the ground and incorporates features such as curved corners and scratch-proof coatings. Cot/Beds are also available, when your child has finished with the cot it can be adapted easily into a first time toddler bed.
Girls beds are often indistinguishable from boys beds. They're usually heavy, built to resist wrestling, jumping, and sleepovers, and only the addition of some printed sheets and a few pillows can distinguish a girl's fairytale room from a boy's castle room. Kids theme beds take the idea of children's beds a step further, and create safe, sturdy frames, headboards, and even lofts that fit the theme of a child's room. Castles are popular for accessorizing Disney Princess rooms, while baseball, basketball, and hockey designs are popular additions to sports theme rooms. Some parents actually use the beds themselves for design inspiration, by first finding unique kids beds that they like, and purchasing paint, textiles, and other furniture based on the bed's look.
The many gender neutral types can be such things as cartoon themes, certain animals, etc. especially when they are younger, as in babies or toddlers, it can be a lot easier to find gender neutral themes as opposed to gender specific. One of the reasons for this is that small children tend to not care quite as much about colors being a certain way and care more about characters or animals, and these all tend to be the same. This is especially true with nurseries, because so many times a person doesn't find out what the sex of the baby will be before it's born, or they do, but the sonogram is wrong, or they are concerned with it possibly being wrong. Many parents tend to go with neutral bedding so that they won't have to worry about this if it happens to them. Luckily, with babies, no one cares that a little boy's room is done in light greens and yellows, but when they get older their friends might tend to make fun of them if this were still the case.
Theme beds or fantasy beds are quite extravagant. Some are designed like castles, spaceships, and playhouses to provide fun and excitement for kids. However, as the kids grow older, they will eventually lose interest in old items and look for other styles. You don't want your teenage daughter to be stuck with a princess theme bed if she wants more "grownup" styles. In this case, you can simply discard or donate the old bed to make way for a new one. However, you will need the extra money for this. If you want a contemporary bed that can "grow" as your child grows, then check whether it is easy to refurbish and redesign for a revamped look. Kids bed land can be transformed into a great loft bed for teenagers. The playhouse below can become a study with a desk, computer, and shelves. As teenagers focus on their school work, you will be providing the necessary space for studying.
