Top 7 beds for boys under $400: Find the perfect big boy bed

When I was researching big boy beds for Patrick, it was a real struggle to find stylish beds that were affordable and practical. It led me to create a round up of the top 7 beds for boys under $400. Because new beds constantly come onto the market (and others become discontinued), I’ve just updated this article with the latest boy beds that are available NOW.

After looking at what feels like hundreds of beds online, these are the standouts to me — great value for money and simple, stylish or versatile designs. Unlike some designer beds on the market (often priced into the thousands), all the beds on this list are under $400.

1. Sage green modern hospital bed by Mocka $219.99

Offering excellent value for money, it’s hard to go past this bed from Mocha. I love the modern spin on a traditional hospital bed. It’s available in 3 colours (sage green, pink and white) so you can find one to suit your child’s bedroom colour scheme.

2. Grey boucle bed by Focus on Furniture $329

This bed is almost too stylish for a kids room, ha. Seriously though, that upholstery is dreamy and will carry your child through to young adulthood. The rounded design will also appeal to all the parents with rough and tumbley kids!

3. House bed from Temple & Webster $269

Temple & Webster is Australia’s largest marketplace for furniture and home decor. Naturally, that includes kids beds! They have plenty of cool styles to choose from but one of our fave budget buys is the classic house bed. Having recently turned Alexander’s nursery into a big boy room, I chose a wooden house bed because it’s low to the ground, offers lots of fun styling opportunities and is super affordable! It’s a great toddler boy bed 😉

4. Kids arch canopy bed from Temple & Webster $299

If you love the idea of adding a canopy to give your child that safe and enclosed feeling, this arch bed is sure to pique your interest! Featuring an arch structure, it’s different to any kids bed we’ve seen and we can just imagine all the fabulous styling opportunities the bed frame offers. From stringing up fairy lights or bunting, to draping over a canopy, you can have some real fun!

5. Teepee bed from Temple & Webster $169

If you’re worried about how your child will make the transition from a cot into a bed, opting for a low bed could be the way to go. Teepee shapes have been popular for a while now but when they look this stylish, they’re not going away any time soon!

6. SLÄKT bed from IKEA $139

Because often less is more, this super simple (and affordable) bed has made the list. It’s high off the ground but it does offer great under-bed storage or the option to have a pull out bed below.

7. BUSUNGE extendable bed from IKEA $379

Another great option from IKEA is this extendable bed. I really like the high sides and rounded design, plus you can’t go wrong with a simple white bed that you can completely change the look of with bedding and accessories!
