Children’s Bedroom: Providing Your Kids with a Space That Fits Their Needs
As children grow their needs and taste change with them, so choosing a furniture that is appropriate for your kids involves selecting a bed, drawer chest, table and chair that suits their stage of development. That way they will be able to use their furniture independently and safely. For example, a toddler bed with safety rails makes a great transitional bed when a crib is not needed anymore. Similarly, a drawer chest designed for kids is less likely to tip and feature drawers sized just right for kid’s clothing.
The foremost concern for buying childrens bedroom furniture should always be safety. You should always be aware of safety standards and make sure that your purchase conforms to your kids’ needs. Other factors to consider include space, style, durability, and budget.
Many babies, when they start to walk, they begin trying to climb out of their cribs. Once this happens, the crib becomes an unsafe place for them to sleep. Since a real bed is not appropriate at this point – it offers no protection on the sides and it is too high – a toddler bed is a right option. A toddler bed is a small bed designed to fit a crib mattress. It is a popular choice among parents because it avoids the need to buy a new mattress and often comes with a railing around the head of the bed, which prevent children from rolling out of bed while asleep.
For older children, you can consider other types of beds like bunk beds and space-saving loft beds. Classic bunk beds are a perfect choice to accommodate two children in one room while loft beds allow you to create space below for a play area or a desk.
While adults see a dresser as a place to store clothes, children see it as a jungle gym. So, when shopping for childrens bedroom furniture, make sure to choose a dresser made of real wood to withstand the test of time. Oak dressers are quite strong, but a dresser made of natural wood will withstand the job better.
Table and Chairs
Kids table and chairs are designed for small children and they make the perfect area for kids to play. The low chairs allow your children to sit down while drawing or painting at the table. And because most of kid’s tables come with a stain-resistant coat, that makes them easy to clean. For safety reasons, make sure to choose a model without sharp edges.
