Four Boys Bedrooms with Convertible Beds - Watch them Grow from Toddlers to Teens

Four Boys Bedrooms with Convertible Beds - Watch them Grow from Toddlers to Teens
Toddler bed time!!! It's that moment when you realize - despite your best efforts - that your son will absolutely no longer fit in that small baby crib... it can be a little scary, yet exciting, because it's time for his first big boy bed! Transitioning from a crib to a boy's toddler bed can be relatively easy when you select one with back and front safety rails. The fear of him rolling out in the middle of the night is minimized and you can focus more on creating a fun boy's bedroom.

Our recommendation is to start with a good foundation. Selecting a twin toddler bed that converts easily over time will allow you to keep the bed all the way into his teens. We call these Maxtrix convertible beds, and they work for toddler beds all the way up to bunk beds and lofts. Here are a few examples using three bed configurations from the same base bed.

Bed 1 - Start them Young!

Boys love daybeds, bunks beds and top tents! Maxtrix beds are perfect for boys as they are designed to be plenty safe and rock solid.

Bed 2 - Watch them Grow!

Bigger boys need more room to have fun with towers and slides OR add more storage options with case goods and furniture.

Bed 3 - Make it Last!

When it's time for middle, high school or even college, this bed is still made for them! Convert the twin or full bed to a low, mid, high or ultra high loft - all options are great for small bedrooms, dorms and spaces!

Take a look at some of our favorite boy's bedroom transformations.

Tent Bed > Play Bed > Low Loft in Chestnut

Toddler Boy Room with Convertible Bed

Start with a tent bed. Create a low loft easily with our conversion kits, which lifts the bed to your desired height. Create a play bed with castles and slides. As he gets older, this bed easily converts into a loft bed with desk. The accessories were removed and a rollout desk and storage replaced them for functionality and added storage.

Bed 1 - Daybed with guard rails + top tent in red, blue & yellow.

Bed 2 - Play bed; low loft with slide, top tent, tower & bottom curtains.

Bed 3 - Low loft with storage; 3-drawer dresser, bookcase and pullout student desk.

Daybed > Castle Bed > White Low Loft with Curtains

Toddler Boy Room with White Beds

The Matrix day bed is a core building block for almost all of our possible bed combinations. As your toddler becomes a young boy, raise the bed and opt for a low loft. Themed beds are popular at this stage, and we’ve shown you how to create the perfect knight’s castle with a slide. When he’s ready for a change, remove the castle accessories but leave the play space under for some ‘fort’ fun.

Bed 1 - White daybed with guard rails + blue bedding.

Bed 2 - White castle play bed; low loft with slide, flags, bottom curtains.

Bed 3 - White low loft with curtains in blue and orange theme.

Chestnut Boys Daybed > Play Bed > Low Loft with Storage

Toddler Boys Room

Our day bed transforms easily into a low loft; simply add leg extensions and an angled ladder. Opt for tents, curtains, castles & more to create a fun play bed. When your son is older, the accessories can easily be replaced with case goods. We love the added storage found in each stair on this low loft.

Bed 1 - Chestnut daybed with guard rails + neutral bedding.

Bed 2 - Play bed with tower, top tent, curtains & slide.

Bed 3 - Low loft in chestnut with storage; three-drawer dressers, bookcase, stairs with storage drawers.

Low Bunk Beds > L-Shaped Bunk Beds > Mid Loft with Desk

Toddler Boys Room in Natural Wood

Our day bed transforms easily into a low loft; simply add leg extensions and an angled ladder. Opt for tents, curtains, castles & more to create a fun play bed. When your son is older, the accessories can easily be replaced with case goods. We love the added storage found in each stair on this low loft.

Boys love bunks! When he needs more space and storage, reconfigure the bunk beds into a l-shaped configuration. Add storage options like dressers or bookcases. As he becomes a teenager, convert the bed into a mid or high loft. Add a desk for study time.

Bed 1 - Natural bunk beds, underbed storage drawers, blue & white curtains.

Bed 2 - Turn the bottom bunk, making L-Shaped configuration with bookcase & dresser.

Bed 3 - Mid loft bed with desk; rollout desk & four-drawer dresser.

Essentially, the possibilities are endless. Choose from different finishes, heights, fabric colors, slides vs. no slides, accessories and case goods. And, don't worry about choosing all of your options now; just start with a single bed from Maxtrix, and build from there! You can change it at any time thereafter. Most importantly, involve your child (he will LOVE helping you choose) and have fun!
