How to Furnish Children's Room

Designing a children’s room requires a lot of thought and attention to the detail. It’s difficult to juggle between your kid’s desires, your budget and the overall house decor. You need to find the perfect balance of functionality and an appealing decor. Feeling stressed already? Don’t worry, with a few furnishing tips and a dose of imagination, you will create a fun and magical place for your kid.

When it comes to children, you need to think safety first. One of the most challenging aspects of decorating this area is considering all the ways in which your infant might get hurt. Put yourself on the place of your little one. When buying a bunk bed, insist that the younger child sleeps on the lower level. If you are decorating a nursery, pick a crib with bars that have smaller spacing. Take into account the height of the child. The crib should be equipped with latching mechanism that will help you regulate the rails.

The children room should be a healthy and sanitized environment. Cleaning is essential. Thus you should think about furniture that is easy to maintain. If you are planning to purchase specific carpeting, choose hypoallergenic fabrics. Otherwise you will have tough times with carpet cleaning.

If you have a bookcase in the children’s room, you need to place it as closer as possible to the wall and secure it. Your toddler will probably try to climb it. Don’t put heavy pieces on the top, because they might fall and hurt your little one. In general, don’t put a lot of items, because they collect dust and you will be cleaning a lot more. Secure the massive wooden chest with a closing mechanism that will prevent it from slamming down and hurting your child’s fingers. If you want to spice up the room with different details, don’t get items with small removable parts. Your toddler might choke it. You should store potential hazardous elements away from the little one.

Aim towards furniture in round shape. Secure the sharp edges and corners with plastic protectors. Get locks for the cupboards with limited access. Your kids have the habit of sticking their fingers in the electrical outlets, so you need to safeguard them. Cords and other appliances around the room should be kept out of their way. Otherwise they might grab them or trip and fall.

Kids accumulate variety of things that need to be stored and organized. Make cleaning easier by picking furniture that will serve more than one function. Imagine tons of toys spread all over the room. Purchase a bed with a storage space. Look for movable ad foldable pieces. If you don’t have enough area you should consider buying a space – saving platform.

Choose a furnishing that will grow with your child. You want to provide your child with the room of their dreams, but you should recognize the fact that their taste changes with the age. A teenager might not like a fairytale themed room. If you don’t want to renovate and spend large amount of money for a new design, choose pieces that can be easily remodelled and adapted to a different design.

Decorate with the art that you already have. Put some of your children’s drawing in a frame and you have amazing and unique details. You can use as an alternative photos of your infant. You can go a bit further and create a little gallery corner where you will dispose the artwork of your kids – from pasta jewellery to clay sculptures.
