8 Best Mid Sleeper Beds in 2021

For this post, I have put together a collection of the best mid sleeper beds currently available. You may also be interested to see my top recommendations for high sleeper beds or browse all my guides on children beds.

Our Top Pick

My personal favourite is the Marlowe Mid Sleeper Bed from Cuckooland as it has its own staircase and a fun play den space with it’s own little window. It’s ideal for smaller bedrooms and comes in two neutral colours, white and grey.

Mid Sleeper Beds are an excellent option for maximising space in your child’s bedroom.

This type of bed features an elevated bed frame so that there is room to use the floor space underneath the bed.

Many mid sleeper beds come with integrated storage underneath the bed including drawers and shelving or some have play house space. It really depends on which type would best suit your child.

A mid sleeper bed is lower to the ground than a high sleeper bed so it will have a shorter ladder or staircase which leads up to the raised bed, which is ideal for younger children so they are not up too high.
