Rattan toddler bed
A toddler bed, also known as a junior bed, is a nice intermediate step for your child after he or she has outgrown the cot. Because the toddler bed is smaller than a single bed, it still feels safe for your child.
A toddler bed for more security
The transition from the crib to a large bed is not only a big step for your child. It is also exciting for you as parents! Because your little one can now suddenly climb out of bed and could even fall out of bed!
That is why toddler beds also have higher sides at the head and foot end than a normal bed. This ensures that your child is "stopped" if he or she threatens to fall out of bed. The high sides also offer a sense of security, as they also experienced in the cot.
The ideal intermediate solution for the small children's room
The nursery is often the smallest room in the house. But introducing a whole new room in addition to the step of a new bed may be a bit much for your little one. Then a toddler bed is exactly what you are looking for. Due to the intermediate size, it is not only a nice place to sleep that offers your child a sense of security, it also takes up less space than a large bed.
A toddler bed is a good way to let your child become more independent. Because the bed is somewhat lower and smaller than a large bed, your child can easily get in and out.
What is Rattan?
Rattan is a material derived from the rattan palm. It is a hard type of liana that grows in tropical rainforests. Most types of rattan are climbing plants, but there are many different types.
What is the difference between rattan, wicker and bamboo?
There is some confusion between rattan, wicker and bamboo. That is not surprising, these materials are also very similar. But where rattan is a kind of liana that grows in the tropical rainforests, reed is an aquatic plant and in principle not suitable for making furniture.
Unlike rattan and wicker, bamboo is hollow inside and therefore a lot lighter. Bamboo is a type of grass. Bamboo also grows like cabbage and that is why these materials are nowadays seen as the sustainable replacement for wood. It is a strong, flexible material and is easy to shape and bend. Perfect for making furniture!
Sustainable substitute for wood
Rattan grows very quickly and needs little water. You will no longer find this liana species only in the jungle, it is now impossible to imagine the interior without it! The use of natural materials immediately gives a warm appearance to your interior. It is therefore not surprising that you can find a rattan product in almost every room of the house these days! And… it is also incredibly sustainable. Win win!
