If you're a parent, you know how difficult it can be getting your kids in bed at a reasonable time. On top of
that, buying beds for your children can be expensive — especially since they'll only need that bed for a few
years. There are also a few other things to consider. Do your kids share a room? Do you need extra storage
space? Should you go with a themed bed? Should you rent or buy? It's all a lot to take in. Here are a few things
to consider when buying a bed for your kids.
Why rent your kids' beds?
First things first — to rent or buy? Often, your kids only need a child-sized bed for a few years. It's nice to
have the option to buy, but renting is convenient and flexible. If your kids outgrow the bed, you can return it
and rent a larger one! If you have more kids on the way, you can finish your rental payments and own the bed
outright. The bottom line? Aaron's gives you options.
To bunk or not to bunk?
That is the question. Will your kids be sharing a room, or will they have their own? How large is the bedroom? Do
you want to maximize the play space? Bunk beds are awesome for kids that share a room. If the room is on the
smaller side, a bunk bed can open up some extra space in the room for dressers, chairs, or play space. Plus, it
can be a little bit more affordable than buying two separate beds. If you like flexibility, some brands offer
beds that convert from a bunk to twin beds with some quick adjustments.
Make your kids' bedtime fun.
Getting your kids tucked in at the right time can be a hassle — they always want to keep playing, start another
movie, or turn on their video game console. Making bedtime fun with a themed bed can help. Your kids might
actually get excited to jump into their race car or princess bed at night! We offer themed beds at Aaron's that
will get your little ones excited about bedtime.
Try a bed with storage.
Every kid could use some spare storage under his bed. Whether it's for clothes, action figures, or something
else, it's nice to have storage options. Plus, having a spot to keep the building blocks will keep you from
having to step on them. A captain's bed will have drawers and shelving, so you can keep your child's room as
organized as possible.
