Why our sleep experts loved it
Today we’re all about mid-sleepers in the Dreams lineup and to start things off we have an all-encompassing bed from the retailer. The Anderson Mid Sleeper Bed Frame with Storage & Drawers is an ingenious solution for any child's bedroom in the form of a mid sleeper bed. With a bevy of features designed to provide not only comfort but also functionality and storage, this mid sleeper bed has quickly become a favourite among parents and children alike with an impressive 350+ reviews to date. With its incorporated desk, drawers, and den-like under bed space, it offers a complete package for a growing child's needs.
What We Liked
One of the most appreciated features of this bed is its high-quality construction. Parents found it to be very sturdy, with many remarking on the solid, reliable build. The bed seems to promise long-lasting durability, which is a crucial factor when investing in children's furniture.
An essential feature that has won the hearts of both parents and children is the functional and fun 'den' space under the bed. Kids love this as a play space or retreat, and it's been a significant factor in helping some children transition to sleeping in their own beds.
The pull-out desk is another standout aspect of this mid-sleeper and it is ideal for doing homework, crafts, or building LEGO creations. The sliding feature allows for the desk to be tucked away when not in use, freeing up valuable floor space.
The bed also scores high in terms of storage with some incorporated drawers and storage cubes providing ample room to stash away toys, clothes, or school supplies. This has been particularly appreciated by those who've installed the bed in smaller bedrooms, where optimising storage space is crucial.
What We Did Not Like
Despite its many positives, a few issues have come up repeatedly. The most prevalent concern has been the desk's durability - with several instances of desk runners breaking quickly, which could be a potential safety hazard but one that can be easily solved by activating the one-year guarantee.
In terms of assembly, while some found the process simple, others noted that it was time-consuming and the instructions were not always clear. The fact that the wood parts were numbered in the brochure but not on the actual items added confusion and increased assembly time for some.
Materials Used and Their Benefits
The bed is primarily made of solid wood, which adds to its robustness and stability. This choice of material ensures longevity and the potential for repainting down the line, which can help keep the bed relevant as your child's taste evolves.
What Customers Thought
Overall, customers were delighted with the bed, with a high number praising its solid build, storage solutions, and the extra 'den' space. For the children, the bed has been a hit, with many reportedly enjoying the desk and using the space underneath for imaginative play. The bed seems to have encouraged several children to sleep independently, thanks to its exciting features and the sense of 'adventure' it brings to bedtime. However, some disappointment was noted regarding the issues with the desk and assembly process.
To wrap up, this mid sleeper bed represents a fantastic option for families looking to optimise space in smaller rooms, or those seeking a bed that brings a sense of fun to bedtime. With a robust construction, ample storage, and additional features like a desk and den space, it offers much more than just a good night's sleep.
Despite some concerns regarding assembly, durability of the desk runners, and isolated cases of delivery mishaps, the bed still receives a high recommendation based on customer feedback. The space-saving design, coupled with the unique play and study features, make it an excellent investment for your child's bedroom. However, for future improvements, addressing the minor assembly and quality control issues could elevate this product's reputation even further.
