Why a Convertible Crib?

24 October, 2018

It is an exciting time to choose furniture for your nursery, and many parents want to be sure that they are purchasing the right pieces that will be durable and stylish at the same time. As you learn more about the furniture options that are offered, you will see that there are a variety of features and colors that you can choose from.

During this shopping experience, there is one important feature that you should be searching for: a crib that can be converted into a toddler bed and a full size bed. Here are a few reasons why this type of bed is best for your child’s room:

What is a Convertible Crib?

A convertible crib is designed to be a piece of furniture that can last throughout childhood. Many people assume that the crib will be used for the first two years of the child’s life, and then the crib will no longer be needed after the child is big enough for a toddler bed. But, there are actually furniture pieces that are designed to change as the child grows, helping you to avoid the need to buy new furniture at each stage in the child’s life.

When the child is an infant, the convertible crib can be setup like a traditional crib. Then, the pieces can be adjusted to turn it into a toddler bed. Once the child is big enough for a full size bed, you can switch out the mattress and convert the bed one more time.

Advantages of a Convertible Crib

The main advantage of a convertible crib is that you can use the same furniture for many years. In fact, many parents find that it is much more cost-effective to choose a bed that can be changed through most of childhood, instead of buying new beds every time the child gets bigger.

The alternative to a convertible crib is to buy a traditional crib, then buy another toddler bed, and then purchasing a third bed when the child is big enough to need a twin or full size bed. It can be quite a bit of money to make these purchases every few years.

Also, consider the fact that you might have a hard time finding the right furniture colors and design features that will match the rest of the room. When you buy a matching set when the child is young, they will be able to use the same furniture for many years!
