Kids are the biggest gift of a family and a person’s life. So, why not decorate your kids’ room and make it the cutest and the coziest spot of your home?
Decorating and choosing the right furniture for your kids’ room can be stressful and overwhelming because of so many options that are available nowadays. The process of decorating your kids’ room should be well planned to avoid wasting time and unnecessary additional costs. Keep in mind that it’s important to find furniture that will make the place functional and safe, besides playful and colourful. Simply said, the room should be more than just cute and aesthetical. Since all of this can be a bit challenging here are some suggestions on how to get the right furniture for this occasion.
Probably one of the most crucial aspects of decorating your kids’ room is to decide how much money you’re ready to spend on it and to adjust your choice to your budget. The price will depend mostly on the quality of the furniture and the size of the room. If you decide to fulfil your kids’ every wish, be prepared to spend a fortune on decorating their room. It’s important to think about how much you can and want to spend before you start with the whole process. Once you make a plan and circle an amount, see what you can get for that sum of money. If your budget is modest it’s advisable to choose durable elements. Kids tend to outgrow their interests and ask for new furniture or a new room sooner than you expect it.
Types of Materials
No matter the budget, bear in mind that your kids’ safety shouldn’t be compromised by fashion or price. Children’s chances of developing and having allergies are at a higher risk than for adults. That’s why children’s room should be occupied with natural, hypo-allergic and non-toxic materials.
If you have a baby and you’re looking for a baby’s crib make sure it’s made out of natural wood, preferably oak or beech. Cribs made of these kinds of wood allow your baby to breath properly and comfortably. Besides this, kids’ furniture made of natural wood is not harmful to your kids’ health since it doesn’t release harmful fumes.
Choosing the Right Table
You won’t be needing a table in your kids’ room until it’s old enough to attend school. Younger kids, those who aren’t attending school yet, will be satisfied with a chair and a table at the right height. Placing tables in a room for younger kids will help them keep the room organized and gives them a comfortable space and environment for fun activities such as drawing, painting or playing games. The best solution for a child that’s growing is to get a transformer table which can change sizes and become bigger as the child grows and its needs change. This is both an eco-friendly and an economical solution since you won’t have to buy new tables regularly.
Multipurpose transforming furniture is a great investment because of its functionality and practicality. This way, you can save up some space because these kinds of furniture have several functions that you can use. Probably the most functional furniture you can get is a transformer bed for kids. Kids grow up so fast that you don’t even notice it, but you realize that when you figure out they don’t fit their bed anymore. Getting a multipurpose transformer bed you won’t have to worry about finding a proper bed for your kid for some time. This way, you can change bed from a baby’s crib to a crib for a kid of school age. You’ll save yourself some time and money because your kid won’t need to get a new bed for the next 6-8 years.
Teenage period of life is one of the most turbulent and stressful periods of your kids’ life. The adolescent period is the time when your kid’s starting and trying to find oneself, to set goals and make priorities for oneself. Teenagers are picky, choosy and rarely satisfied. The role of you as a parent in these scenarios is to be wise enough and choose furniture that your kid will like.
Teenagers like experimenting and even though you’re not on the same page as your kid and don’t share the same likes and preferences, it’s important to respect their need for individuality and compromise and accommodate to the way your kid wants to decorate the room. It’s likely your kid will want to make bold designs and unusual pieces of furniture like a hammock, posters on the wall or a hanging chair. Allow your kid to decorate its room the way it wants since this will make him or her feel valuable and what’s more important this place – their room will probably be your kid’s safe zone of their home so they need to make it as comfortable as possible.
Furnishing and decorating your kids’ room can be challenging since it takes more than just picking cute stuff. The furniture and the whole place should be safe and functional besides being decorative and playful. Since your kid will spend lots of time in the room, you need to make sure the room feels motivated and comfortable for your kid.
