Second, you can use the old crib mattress for a toddler bed. This will lessen the cost of your getting a new bed. You also wouldn’t have to buy new beddings for the new bed since old beddings on your crib mattress can also be used for this. However if the time comes that you need to buy new beddings, some stores have sizes only designed for particular beds. So instead of saving on beddings, it will even be more costly for you. Third, think of your toddler’s safety. Toddler beds are usually lower to the floor compared to the regular beds so it is a lot easier to get in and out of the bed. Railings also add security on the bed since this could prevent your toddler from falling off. Whereas if you will get a regular bed, you would still have to add railings on it so it would cost you additional bucks.
First, check if you have a room with space enough to fit a regular bed or just a toddler bed. Other than the bed, babies’ rooms are the most jam-packed with all the clutter and toys. Plus, toddler babies usually play in their rooms so you would want to have enough space for them to also move around. Toddler beds are smaller so it wouldn’t consume that much space in the room. It is the best choice for a smooth transition. It will give your toddler enough the size of the bed and enough space in the room. While a regular bed gives more space to sleep in, its size can occupy much of the space in the room leaving your toddler with little space for a play area.
If we start by taking a look at the wood, we would advise using MDF (medium density fibreboard) for the bed as this will give it an overall strength. For your army of tools you’ll require saws, sanding machines or paper and ideally a jigsaw plus nail gun, although obviously you can start with the more manual tools like a simple hammer, but you will find a small investment in tools will make all of your woodwork projects much easier time and effort wise. Don’t forget other sundries including nails, screws, adhesives, filler and spackle to cover over thin cracks in the wood joints.
