Castles, dragons and fairies are written about in books and are captured in the hearts of children everywhere. But they do not have to stay in a child's imagination. Parents can help to make those dreams come true in their child's room. Here are given a few tips to decorate your kids’ room.
Placing CribsThe furniture requirement will depend on the age of the child and after a particular age, even the gender of the child will affect this choice. For babies, a crib would be suitable. A crib could be placed in parent’s room but if child’s room is adjacent and easily assessable to parent’s room, this could be kept in child’s room also. The crib should have sidewalls of slats that do not have a gap of more than a couple of inches so that soft toys could not fall down. One of the sidewalls should be collapsible so that the mattress could be easily changed. The crib should be of a height that allows picking and laying the baby with ease. It should have the possibility of hanging some toys that the baby could be amused with.
Applying Chairs and TablesIn a baby’s room there should be a comfortable chair for feeding the baby and table of such a height that the mother could easily change baby’s nappies. The beautiful wooden chest is designed with a couple of handy storage open baskets to keep the nappies and other essential things of the baby.
Choosing Beds Moving from crib to a toddler’s bed is a big step in a child’s life. It is a kind of passage from infant to toddler. When your child is too big for a cradle but too small for a regular bed, a storage cabinet for keeping toys, dresses, toiletries should also be provided in a toddler’s room. For children up to 10 years of age imaginative and fantasy base furniture like a car or a cottage is more suitable as this age is more fantasy oriented.
Bunk beds for more than one child can be a space saver and also provide more space for playing in a room.
Providing Study Tables and Storages
School going children will also need a study table and a computer table. Children above 10 years will require storage space and furniture for books, games etc. Ample storage units should be provided. Some of these can be glass fronted for toys books etc. Easily accessible storage should be available for the children. High shelves for holding books and toys are practical additions to the kid’s room.
These smart storage ideas help to control clutter. Multi functional furniture like beds with storage drawers below can be space savers
Flexibility could be introduced by floor cushions. Scale could be added to the room if low height furniture is used for smaller children.
