Back To School Furniture Guide: Elementary

Back To School Furniture Guide: Elementary
Is your child starting kindergarten? Returning to elementary school (K-5)? We know your emotions are high. This is a new world for them. Mornings seem rushed, homework gets real and evenings seem full. But, this is also a fun time for children with the introduction of sleepovers and new activities. Let's transition them from preschool to elementary school easily with a new room setup! We can help you change it by converting your current Maxtrix toddler furniture or starting fresh with new items from Maxtrix!

Top Bedroom Furniture for Children in Elementary School


Elementary Beds

Elevated beds like bunk beds and loft beds are very popular with children ages 6-12. They love the idea of climbing to sleep! If you already have a toddler bed from Maxtrix, you can use leg extenders to elevate your bed to a low or mid loft (perfect for this age group), and perhaps add another bed underneath to make bunks or beside it to make a corner loft. Add an optional trundle bed underneath for guests or sleepovers!

Single Beds | Low Loft Beds | Corner Bunk Beds | Trundle Beds

New to Maxtrix? Start fresh with one of our solid wood beds! All of our single beds, bunks or lofts are available in twin or full sizes, and you can select your color finish and end style. Help them climb safely with our staircase beds (with extra wide steps... and each is a pullout drawer!), or opt for an angled or straight ladder if there are space limitations. And, feel free to change the configuration over time! Play beds today become study beds tomorrow!

K-5 Desks & Storage

Homework can be a battle at this age. It's important to set your kids up for a successful study time with a space that helps them focus... away from siblings and distractions. Desks help create ergonomically correct setups for kids to use stationary computers and learn how to function in a real "work" environment (because we're not ALWAYS on the go!) Investing in a versatile piece of furniture affords you the option to place the desk in your kid's room or in another designated area of the home. Maxtrix desks look great next to 'adult' furniture and stand the test of time. ;)

StudySpaceBlock Children also collect many books during this age range. Their reading interests escalate and they need a great spot like our bookcases to store their favorite reads! Help your kids learn storage organization with Maxtrix bookcases or storage cubes. All of our furniture (dressers, desks, storage cubes, toy bins and bookcases) slide underneath our loft beds - creating a storage bed - which can also be reconfigured at a later date. Here are some of our most popular pieces of furniture for elementary aged kids:
