Fun Furniture Collection’s Frequently Asked Questions.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We love talking topeople, and know that each customer has different questions.
What makes us different from other bed manufacturers?
Mark & Llinos from Fun Furniture Collection knows how important
it that parents are happy with their children’s new bespoke theme
bed. We are a small family company who prides themselves on
putting the customer first. Customers are the heart of our business.
There are no added hidden costs for our furniture, what you see is
what you pay for. We give you the customer a range of options to fit
your budget. This includes a large choice of colours chosen from a
RAL Colour chart provided delivery and personalised number plates.
Mark, an industrial designer with over 30 years of experience,
designs all of our furniture. We do not sell third-party designs. Each
piece of furniture is conceived at Fun Furniture Collection and
exclusively handmade in the UK.
What are the options for painting? Fun Furniture Collection will give you a large choice of colours chosen
from a RAL Colour chart provided. Alternatively, if you provide a RAL
colour reference we can try and match this paint, or send us a
photograph of your vehicle and we will try and match it to the best of
our ability. We use a child-friendly interior paint or clear varnish, we do
not lacquer over the paint allowing repainting or touching up at any time
with handy touch up paint provided with your order.
Are our materials from a sustainable source?All our panel materials are FSC Certificated.
How will l know what the furniture will look like with my chosen colours?
Once you have provided your chosen colours Mark and Llinos at Fun Furniture Collection will email you 3D images of what the bed will look like before we start painting, allowing changes to be made.
What is the difference between MDF and PLY?
Fun Furniture Collection works with the material Birch Faced Furniture Grade Plywood and MDF. Many companies choose MDF as their main choice of material to produce their furniture over plywood. This is not the case with Fun Furniture Collection we give you both options. The major difference between these two materials is that of strength and durability. Each of these materials has their good points and bad points.
MDF being compressed fibreboard allows a smoother paint finish, but does not takes the day to day knocks as well as birch faced plywood. Also, MDF can loose structural stability a lot quicker than birch faced plywood due to the screw holes becoming loose.
Inversely the Birch faced Plywood is a much stronger durable material being a laminate but does not give a smooth paint finish as it has a wood grain to its exterior. The major benefits of birch faced plywood is that it will outlast any MDF furniture and can be passed down from generation to generation or resold at a far higher price than MDF.
Can I have my own personalised number plate?Fun Furniture Collection can personalise number plates to a maximum of 7 characters at no extra charge.
What size and depth of the mattress do the beds fit?
Every bespoke theme bed made at Fun Furniture Collection fits a standard single UK mattress 190cm Length x 90cm Width x 15cm Depth. Top bunks do not fit 17cm depth mattresses.
We understand parents read stories at bedtime and we feel it’s important for the child and parent to be comfortable in a standard single mattress where there are no restrictions
We only produce full-size single beds, as we feel children grow too quickly out of toddler beds not giving the parent value for the time used. When your child is ready for their first big bed, please contact us and we will be happy to help to make bedtime fun.
Are mattresses included in the price?
We do not provide mattresses
with our beds as there are so
many options on the market.
If you need assistance, we are
happy to help.

.What age do the beds start from?
Fun Furniture Collection feel it is the choice of the parent for when they decide their child is ready for their first big bed. We have had children from the age of 2 and a half getting their first beds from Fun Furniture Collection. As it is a standard single mattress your child will not grow out of it until they are over 6’ 2”. In respect of the Bunk beds, European guidelines say a child under 6 years old should not be on a top bunk.
