Sharing A Bed

We bought Zachary his new bed today. It's something we've been contemplating for awhile as he was due to get a new mattress for his single bed however he is outgrowing a single bed so we decided to get him a double bed and new mattress. These should last him until he moves out!

Zachary's room is quite big, and whilst Charlotte's room would also take a double, she wouldn't have much more space after that so she was eager to have a sleepover in Zachary's bed. It didn't last long, of course, because she missed her own bed. There is nothing quite like your own bed even at the tender age of 7.

His bed is from Ikea. I think all of our bedroom furniture is from Ikea apart from Charlotte's bed. We're a bit obsessed with oak; our entire house has oak in it from the kitchen cupboards to the wooden frames and skirtings. As much as the modern houses look fantastic with white everywhere, oak is so much easier to keep clean! Our bathrooms are the only rooms that have white woodwork in them. We bought a memory foam mattress as we've found the sprung mattresses too firm. The bed comes with the option of drawers so we got 2 and they are huge. There's also plenty of space underneath the bed to get the low-style plastic storage boxes underneath.

Zachary is delighted with his new bed and couldn't wait to get to go to sleep. To be fair, I don't blame him because I wanted to get in it!
