When decorating your kid’s room, focused conversation-inducing questions about their interests may help shape the room’s design direction. If they love boats, seashore, and everything nautical, a totally awesome boat bed may be the perfect place to start the design.
There are so many different boat shaped beds on the market ranging from rustic to classic to kiddie theme. Basic bed shape doesn’t change (always includes a stern and a bow) but style does change and it’s the details that make the difference.
If he just wants a simple boat…..”a small vessel propelled on water by oars, sails, or an engine”, a rowboat may be all you need to satisfy the desire. No frills.
If he’s thinking high seas, a ship…..”a vessel larger than a boat for transporting people or goods by sea” may be what’s needed. Sails, ship’s wheels, and anchors add detail any captain would love in a totally awesome boat bed.
Look at these to see what I mean…..
The bed will be a dramatic focal point in the room……no need to have every piece of furniture look nautical. Plus if you limit nautical items to accessories, only the bed and accessories need replaced to change the room design.
So, when your kids’ ask for a boat shaped bed, go ahead and let them sail away!
