Gone are the days when children will content themselves to the choices of their parents. Children are now more vocal with what they want even in the things that concern their bedroom. Therefore, encourage them to join you if you are planning to furnish their bedroom.
This does not only concern the wall color and decorations but also the furniture. It would be better if you invite them to go with you to the shop so they can do their selection or you can check the internet together.
However, you must not leave the decision to them. You must guide them, as children will only choose depending on the aesthetic look of the furniture. Quality will obviously be overlooked as well as the price.
To make it easier for the both of you, talk it out together and list the items that he would need.
Choose something that will last them a long time. Furniture costs a lot and it would be expensive to keep on changing them from time to time. It is cheaper to change the decorations than the furniture. Therefore, pick furniture that can blend with any type of decorations.
Pick a bed that offers storage spaces. Most beds are now equipped with underneath drawers where linens, blankets, curtains, etc. can be kept. Some also have headboards that have built-in shelves and cabinets. These storage spaces will keep your kid’s room tidy for having enough room to keep his belongings.
Rather than having a sofa, you can opt to have a beanbag. Have a mat or rug on the floor and put the beanbag on top of it. This does not only suit small children but is also nice and chic for teenagers. Let him pick his choice of color.
Get him a wardrobe cabinet that also have drawers and shelves where he can put his accessories. Children have plenty of accessories these days and if they have a suitable space to keep them, these items will not be misplaced. Ensure that the cabinets are within their easy reach – not too high or too low.
Provide them a dresser with a mirror. Children spend hours in front of the mirror; hence, this is an essential item in their bedroom. Choose one with drawers, too.
Provide them a bedside table with a lamp. Alternatively, you can have a clip lamp above the headboard but make sure that there is a dimmer switch near them.
Buy the essential bedroom furniture that will make it spic and span and at the same time will teach him to be orderly and clean. Nevertheless, always pay extra attention to the quality to ensure his safety as well as to save you from expenses.
