Decorating a child’s room may seem easy, but it can take a lot of thought and consideration. In addition to making your child feel part of the process, selecting the right furnishings can bring comfort and security to their living space. The following tips can help you make the best choices when you’re looking to furnish your child’s room.
Lots of Storage
The kitchen isn’t the only room in your home that you’ll want to concentrate on being organized. In addition to picking out a bed and desk, you’ll also find some cool kids furniture ideas that can keep them organized and happy. Look around for some decorative storage containers that serve as double duty such as matching the room’s décor and being large enough to house their toys and games. While you may lean toward something complicated and fancy, children will be better organized if they can put things away without a lot of hassle.
Changing Tables and Crib
After you’ve focused on organization for your household, you want to determine your child’s needs. If your child is at the nursery stage of their life, a changing table and crib are must-haves for parents. Safety is the number one concern, so you want to ensure that they’re made from materials that are sturdy. They should also have smooth corners and guard rails to prevent your little one from falling. The materials should also be toxic-free. Children can grow at a rapid pace, so you want to make sure the furnishings will last you through several stages of their early lives.
Furniture and Bedding
If your child has a particular theme in mind, you can choose the furnishings to mesh with a certain color or character. However, to prevent a lot of waste, you want to select pieces that are durable and can be used through the years. In addition to a headboard, mattress and bed, you may also want to look for shelves and other accent pieces to add character and dimension to their space. Since this is their room, your child will thank you for including them in the decision-making process.
Nightstands and Tables
Depending on how much space your child has in their room, there are other options that can make their room more habitable than just a bed, storage and shelving units. Nightstands or tables can add functionality and character. In addition to housing lamps and glasses of water, the accessories should also include drawers for clothing, socks and other essentials.
Desk and Chairs
Parents should encourage their children to find a quiet place to do their homework and study. Decorating their room to promote creativity can help them concentrate and do well at school. There are a number of desk styles on the market today that can house computers, laptops and books. You can also find them in an array of styles and colors that can blend with their other furnishings. You also want to look for something with an ample of amount of space that provides them with the right comfort level.
Even small children can suffer from insufficient lighting. While a ceiling fixture may seem like a lot of lighting for a child, you need to consider other options such as desk lamps. Placed in the right place in a child’s room, the extra lights can prevent glare from the sun or computer screen and provide the right amount of light for them to play or tackle their homework projects. You may also want to add additional lighting units to shelving units, and their closet space.
