Small bedrooms with BIG beds??
Hi again, everyone!
I am pondering another dilemma I have in my "small" space tonight - our kids bedrooms. All three rooms are small, but they have large beds - youngest (6) has a full, middle (10) has a 3/4 bed, oldest (13) has a queen. All beds were family hand-me-downs, so free beat practical and we shoved them in there.
Now we wonder if the rooms would feel more spacious if we downsized the beds. All the beds are showing their age, and should be replaced soon. Since we're replacing, should we scale down the size to make more room, or do you think it would be counter-intuitive to give growing children smaller beds? I've asked my oldest what she thought - I think she would definitely be willing to at least go from queen to full. The other two, who knows... maybe my reasons are selfish. We pushed the beds up against walls to make more floor space for playing, but that makes bedmaking a nusance. But, as they get older, maybe they won't care about floor space for playing, then we can center the beds on the walls and create walking room around the perimeter.
Just my own rambling thoughts on the matter - Would love your thoughts on this. Thanks again!
