|Children’s bedrooms are no longer a room that they simply sleep in that has a bed and austere bedroom walls. Bedrooms are now multi functional, an area children can use as an extra playroom or somewhere to go with their friends.|
|Children’s bedroom furniture now includes a wide choice of bed styles, from standard single beds to high sleepers packed with under bed cupboard space to maximise the area you have available. Storage solutions are now not only functional but also fun. Involving your child in the process of decorating and kitting out their bedroom will ensure it is a place they love to be.|
|Essentially a bedroom is still primarily for sleep so it’s important to make the room harmonious, relaxing and full of suitable and storage. Lots of useful storage means you will be able to put toys away at night to remove distractions in preparation for a good night’s sleep.|
|Children’s rooms need to be fun, funky and practical. Letting your children decide what colours or themes they are interested in can help guide you through the decision process. Children opt for themes as diverse as trains to dinosaurs, princesses to maps and not forgetting their favourite TV and film characters. Identity is an important part of childhood and encouraging your children to be a part of this process can help increase confidence as well as turn a mundane job into a fun activity. Although children will need a fair amount of guidance when choosing furniture and decor they are excellent at using intuition and creativity.|
|If you have two children in one room involving them in choosing furniture and decorations can give them the opportunity to stamp their own identity on different halves of the room or at least help them learn to compromise by choosing furniture that they both like. You can either choose each piece individually or alternatively purchase an entire matching range. Children’s rooms can also be kept simple with one or two key pieces.|
|Choosing how to kit out the room can depend on budgetary constraints or DIY ability. Cheap flat packs are available and great for those who are happy to put up their own furniture. Flat packs are also an opportunity to get kids involved with the construction of the furniture which helps them feel proud of their bedroom. Many parents are now choosing made to measure furniture options. Children’s bedrooms are often in odd shaped rooms or extensions and may need furniture that has been made around the constraints of the room especially if kids are sharing. Some parents opt for quality bedroom suites enjoying functional and well made furniture which can be enjoyed for years by younger siblings. Whether it’s a huge bedroom that has to be filled up or a tiny room in need of some ingenious storage solutions there is world of choice available.|
|From bookshelves to beds, wardrobes to trunks children’s furniture is now an exciting purchase full of choice and variety. Whatever your budget, taste or room size there is an answer for your needs and you should be able to find some thing that will please you and delight your children.|
