Any parent knows that furnishing a kids room can be difficult. If you choose the wrong furniture, then children will quickly outgrow it in terms of needs and style preferences. While it is unlikely that you will be able to keep the same furniture in a kids bedroom from their youngest years on into their late teens, when they finally leave the nest, it is important to choose furniture that you can get good use out of.
Here are some tips for choosing kids furniture.
- Kids dressers.
- Kids platform beds.
- Kids room accessories.
The kids dresser should have enough drawers and space for their current wardrobe, but remember that little kids turn into bigger kids, who have bigger clothes. Look for a kids dresser that has a little extra room for your child to grow into.
Platform beds usually have storage underneath, and are low to the floor. They have a distinct modern look, as opposed to bunk beds, and can transition from one life stage to the next while not looking dated or too childish. If you choose to go with a platform bed, consider that choosing a compatible style in kids nightstands will mean looking for ones that are lower to the ground.
Depending on how much room you have left to work with, you may want to find a set of kids table and chairs, and a kids bookshelf to provide your child with a more comfortable place that they can call their own. Look for good quality materials that will stand up to the tougher abuses of younger children.
It is important to choose furniture that is within your budget, but also of quality, and which can be enjoyed by both your child and you. You may want to consider joining a buying club that lets you shop online, and avoid paying retail prices for quality furniture. Additionally, these clubs can sometimes have everything you need, from dressers to bookshelves to nightstands, all in one place. Whether you are just getting a new kids dresser, or redoing the entire room, follow these tips to help you select longer lasting furniture.
