Designing your children bedroom brings such a joy to your life, you feel like time is flying and that little angel turned to be a cute little boy or girl and it’s time to get a new bedroom design to fit their new needs. In this article I will tell you about some helpful tips and ideas to buy the best furniture for your child’s bedroom.
We all know that children don’t stop moving, running or jumping all day, so when you think about buying furniture, you need to consider this point very well. Choose durable furniture pieces that are made with good materials (especially the bed), so you ensure your child’s safety. You need to pay good attention to the finish, paints and the design of these furniture pieces as well, because there are some pieces that have sharp edges or made with sharp materials and for sure such things could be harmful for your child.
Another important factor to consider when you buy your child’s bedroom furniture, is the height of the piece that you choose. Make sure to choose pieces that fit your child’s height to become easy used by your child. It’s also important to choose a big bed, because children grow so fast, so you will need to pick furniture pieces that can last for longer time to keep up with their physical changes. They may get taller or fatter, so you need to be ready for this.
Buying a double bed instead of a twin bed will be such a practical and helpful idea. If you want to save a place for guests, you can use the help of two twin beds. You can also buy a bunk bed if you have a twin, it will use the vertical space leaving enough space for your kids to move around; just make sure to choose a safe one.
These were the main factors that you need to consider first even before you choose the design of your child’s bedroom. So, what is next? The next step will be choosing the kinds and the designs of the furniture pieces that you want to put in your child’s bedroom. Your son or your daughter should be part of this step, because it’s so important to take their opinion when you choose their bedroom’s furniture. This won’t only enhance your child’s confidence, but it will also make a special bond between you both and enhance your relationship as well.
Choosing the right place to do the shopping will be up to you, however I recommend buying online. It will offer you a lot of options to choose from, so easy and it needs less effort. Just get your laptop, sit on your favorite couch with your child and start choosing the furniture pieces that you like.
Ask your child if he or she is thinking of certain or specific theme to apply to their bedroom, before you choose the furniture pieces. This is very important, because it will help you to choose the pieces that fit that theme. For example, if your son loves cars and he chose a car theme for his bedroom, then buying a bed shaped like a car would be a nice idea. If you have a girl who loves girl’s color like pink and purple, then you may need to look for furniture pieces that are painted with these colors.
The differences between choosing furniture pieces for girl’s or boy’s bedroom aren’t that big. The differences will be only in choosing the colors or the themes, but the principles will be the same.
Like I mentioned before the bed should be big and its design will be up to your child’s choice, but what about the other furniture pieces? In general whether you have a boy or a girl or even a twin, you will need to provide your child’s bedroom with enough storage units to keep it organized, neat and tidy. Choosing the storage units will start from choosing the bed, as there are some bed’s frames that come with storage drawers. You can also use bench, nightstands, shelves, hutches, cedar chests, etc as storage units in your child’s bedroom.
If you have a boy and he loves playing video games, then you can put an entertainment unit in his bedroom. Most of these units are provided with shelves and drawers that help your child to keep all of his games CDs, magazines or books organized. If you have a girl who loves fashion, then you need to provide her bedroom with clothes storage places like, wardrobe, chest of drawer and don’t forget to hang a mirror with cute design, in order to check her outfit.
It’s also important to buy a studying desk for your child’s bedroom to help her or him to finish their homework, using their laptop or even drawing. Adding the other beauty touches like choosing cute lightning sources like chandeliers and table lamps or fabrics like, curtains, rugs and bed covers will be essential as well to enhance the beauty of the designs and make sure to choose them matching with the theme or the design of your child’s bedroom.
