Modelling clay or playdough is a fantastically creative substance for kids to play with even…
A children’s bedroom can get pretty chaotic and if you’re not lucky enough to have the largest home, you’ll need to make the most of every inch of your child’s own space. It’s very important to create a suitable environment to encourage sleep and avoiding a cluttered room is definitely an important factor. The trick to ultimate tidiness is seamless storage, so here are some innovative ideas to make the room go the extra mile.
In order to make the most of a small room every inch of space should be utilised to its full potential. Each piece of furniture should be multi-functional in some form, so a fantastic way to combat this is with the most important element of a bedroom – the bed! Why not choose a Cabin or Midsleeper style bed
which provides various storage options, allowing all your child’s favourite possessions to be neatly stowed away in one place. Toys and games can be cleverly organised into sections rather than being aimlessly pushed under a standard single bed and never to be played with again!
A Midsleeper bed such as this from the Parisot range is the answer to all your storage worries and the simple Nordic Ash wood finish is sure to be a winner in any room. It’s super cool design features a desk you can use by day and a bed by night, which is sure to be a winner with every child, while its ample space saving ideas will appeal to parents too. With this choice of bed you will never run out of room to store that excessive games collection they refuse to part with! What’s more, the ladder is smartly integrated into the bed structure, so there will be no wastage of floor space here either.
Alternatively, choose the Scallywag cabin bed, another fantastic space-saving option for older children aged 6 plus. The combination of a higher design with a roomy chest of drawers and even a desk cleverly tucked away underneath is one of the most multi-functional beds you can get your hands on. Belongings can be neatly tidied away without the need for additional furniture taking up precious room. For children, their bedroom often also acts as a playroom, so with this in mind when the desk is not being used for homework simply pull out to reveal lots of room to play underneath! A perfect solution when floor space is limited in your little ones cave. Accompany the wall beside the bed with a Bunk Bed Buddy for additional storage for those all important bedtime stories. Simple to install and genius when you don’t have the room to home a free standing book shelf or a bedside table.
Once you have made a decision on a bed, you will need to consider other aspects of the room. To ensure a small room is utilised to its full potential compliment furniture with pastel colours or simple white paint for the walls to create the illusion of a bright and airy space. Aim to avoid dark colours or busy patterned wallpaper as this will leave the room feeling smaller, instead photo frames or posters are a great way to personalise an environment.
