AKA: 10 Floor Beds That Will Make You Want to Sleep and Dream the Whole Day.

Back when we were looking for a nursery/crib solution for the twins, I discovered a world of resources about “Montessori floor beds”. There’s this school of thought that suggests floor beds as, not only a cheaper and safer alternative to cribs, but also an “independence-building” method for infants/toddlers, where they can “roll out of bed” at their own free will without getting hurt.
What a great idea! I mean, look at all these floor beds for kids! Combining the Montessori school of thought to our own desire to co-sleep (which has its own benefits, too), we decided to let go of the bed frame, place our mattress on the floor, and share the floor bed with the twins. And here we are, 2 years later, still on the same floor bed, making the most out of this phase where we can cuddle with them as long as we can, knowing that soon enough we would need to get them their own separate bed.
Which brings me to these floor bed inspirations, which are, by the way, mainstays on my Pinterest feed. Don’t they just make you want to stay in bed all day? And while you’re looking at my top 10 picks, feel free to daydream about brick walls, wooden floors, house plants and pretty lamps, too.
Ahh. I think I’m ready to sleep and dream now. Sweet dreams! :)
