Have you noticed that furniture in most bedroom youth groups now offer a queen bed option?
Perhaps as a leftover from the Recession, more parents are “thinking forward” when purchasing post-baby furniture. Often, a child’s room is later converted into a guest room. Buying the larger size bed a few years early saves money.
Gender neutral thinking about toys might be carrying over to kids furniture, too. Some parents are steering away from the more gender-specific ornate and carved details traditionally typical of girl’s bedrooms and the rustic flair of boy’s rooms. Both styles could look too juvenile in a future guest room.
