The magical world of children’s furniture. Features of choice.
A children’s room is a magical and fabulous world in which a child will grow and develop. Therefore, the interior and decor in the baby’s room should be thought out to the smallest detail. A small person should feel cozy and comfortable in his personal space. In addition, the children’s room performs difficult tasks, as it simultaneously serves as a bedroom, dressing room and game room, as well as a room where you can do homework in a relaxed atmosphere. Parents are required to make sure that the children’s room is equipped with everything necessary for the child, is functional and looks aesthetically pleasing.
Before buying furniture for a nursery, make sure the quality of the materials from which it is made. They must be safe for the fragile health of the child, environmentally friendly and well polished. If the budget allows you not to save on furniture, then pay your attention to natural wood furniture. It is guaranteed to serve for a long time and, even after years, will retain its original appearance and properties. If you decide to buy furniture for the nursery, choosing from budget options, then you will probably like materials such as particleboard and MDF. They do not contain toxic substances and are durable. Also, do not reject plastic furniture, but provided that the material is not made of low-grade plastic, as evidenced by a quality certificate. Furniture made of plastic is light, bright and beautiful, which is very suitable for the interior of a children’s room.
The second thing that parents should pay close attention to is the safety of the furniture set for the child. All children are very mobile, so children’s furniture should in no case have sharp corners, which the baby can easily get hurt. It is unacceptable in furniture to create an interior in a children’s room the presence of easily breakable materials – mirrors and glasses. Children are often inattentive and careless, therefore, playing with friends or just frolic, a child can not only damage furniture, but also get seriously injured. When choosing a furniture design, it is preferable to buy a table in the nursery with rounded edges, and to showcases prefer blind cases or cabinets with niches.
Many parents, buying a furniture set in a nursery, do not pay attention to how much the furniture matches or does not match the age of the child. Of course, this factor is not decisive, however, do not write it off. To begin with, decide on how long you use the furniture in order to avoid inconsistencies in age parameters. So, if you decide that in a couple of years you will update the interior of your child’s room and continue to follow this time period, then feel free to choose something bright, catchy, with colorful prints and cartoon characters. In such a saturated environment, the baby will feel like in a fairy tale! If your plans do not include changing furniture every few years in accordance with how the child grows up, then turn to neutral, universal children’s modular systems. Such furniture is indispensable when a child with age has new needs for room design, and you can, almost regularly, refresh the interior, operating with modules of the system that are very easy to change places, embodying new ideas. Another indisputable plus of children’s modular systems is the adjustable legs and seats of elements, the height of which can be changed depending on the growth of the kids.
And finally, the furniture, in the environment of which your baby will have to live more than one year, should be comfortable. Before you buy furniture in the nursery, ask the child to push drawers, open the doors, get to the shelves. All this should be easy for him, because then the child will feel like a real master of his possessions and will be able to get the things he needs, toys and clothes without the help of adults.
