When the time comes to redecorate your little one’s bedroom, sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. Obviously, you will need to paint the walls, change the flooring and add in accessories and bits and bobs. But what about the furniture?
For many parents, the most difficult part of decorating their toddler’s bedroom is choosing the furniture. The question is: what is the best type of furniture to choose?
It can be hard to know whether you should opt for toddler sized furniture or whether you should pick pieces that will grow with your child. But there is no need to worry, that is why we are here to help.
To help you choose the best pieces of furniture for your toddler’s bedroom, we have put together a handy guide to four essential pieces of furniture for kid’s room:
1. Chest of drawers
Many parents believe that for babies and toddlers, a changing table is a necessity. But, what they don’t know is that a chest of drawer can be a perfect changing table substitute. For any toddler room, we would definitely suggest investing in a chest of drawers, instead of a new changing table.
To transform a chest of drawers into a changing table, all you need to do is add a changing mat to the top of it. Best of all, once your little one is potty trained, you can whip off the changing mat and use the chest of drawers as an area for clothes storage.
When choosing a chest of drawers, it is important to pick one that is the right height. As well as one that has adequate amounts of storage and is suitable for the theme and style of your child’s bedroom.
2. Cube shelving unit
The cube shelving unit is an absolute must for any little one’s bedroom. It can be used to store anything from pull-ups and baby wipes to books and toys, and is an ideal storage solution for kids.
One of the best things about these units is that they come in a range of colours, materials and styles. While some shelving units are made of coloured plastic, others are made from metal or wood. With various materials to choose from, there are units suitable for every bedroom.
3. Bean bag
Kids just love to flop, and bean bags are perfect for this. They are comfortable, fun and, most importantly, safe for kids of all ages to use. For a fantastic range of colours and styles of bean bags visit www.Comfysacks.com or your local home store.
Adding a bean bag into your little one’s bedroom gives them a place to chill out in and relax, while reading a book or watching television. Plus, for small children, bean bags are much safer than chairs, as they have no sharp edges.
4. Activity table
For toddlers and young children, an activity table is an absolute bedroom must. Instead of investing in a different table for certain activities, such as arts and crafts or building Lego, opt for a multipurpose alternative.
A good activity table that can be used for everything, from drawing and painting to playing trains and doing jigsaw puzzles, is ideal for your little one’s bedroom.
