Great Little Trading Company are experts at creating cosy children’s bedrooms. Getting children to go to bed can often feel like a marathon so one way to ensure your kids are the first to drift off is to create a calming bedroom environment. At GLTC, they have everything you need to put together a snug sleep space for your little dreamers. Here are some tips to get you started:

1. The secret to a good night’s sleep. Create the cosiest of beds, with pure cotton bedding and a mattress that’s specially designed for children. The right mix of support and comfort will give them the ideal foundation for a restful night’s slumber. Choose a frame that works well within your room – mid or high sleepers are great for making the most out of a small space.

2. Get the light right! Opt for blackout curtains to stop daylight disturbing their sleep; create a lower lit environment for bedtime stories with a child-safe lamp.

3. It’s all in the finishing touches. It’s true; they really do make a room. Choose coordinating light shades, curtains and rugs for a fun theme your kids will love.

4. Mess means stress. Come bedtime, make sure all their toys are stored away to create a tidy environment they can relax in. Pick clever storage solutions, like toy boxes or storage trunks, to keep their sleep space organised.
