Buying Bedroom Furniture for the Kids
April 12, 2012 § 1 Comment
Cardi’s furniture stores in Massachusetts and Rhode Island can help families design their children’s bedrooms while staying within a predetermined budget. Here are some tips for creating practical, inviting rooms that kids will love.
Durability is important as well and it is wise to invest in quality pieces that will last several years. Sturdy, scratchproof items are ideal for standing up to kids’ use. Cardi’s furniture and mattress stores in MA and RI can address additional considerations, such as whether a special type of mattress is needed.
Take the child’s size and potential growth into account. A bed that seems too large for him now is usually a better investment than a small toddler bed that he will outgrow within a year or two. For kids of different ages sharing a room, consider a twin/full bunk bed to accommodate both of their needs while conserving space.
Assess how much storage space is required. If the bedroom is also the playroom, then some options for keeping toys off the floor and out of the way include closet bins, wall units, and under-bed storage. Cardi’s furniture stores in RI and MA also carry storage units, as well as specialty beds that include built-in storage.
When decorating, stick with neutral colors on the furniture, walls and floors. The room can be dressed up with interchangeable decorations and accessories, such as pillows, throw rugs and curtains. Many children want to incorporate their favorite cartoon characters or another theme, and keeping furniture neutral will make it easy to exchange when they outgrow a theme. The desired look can be accomplished easily with bed coverings and wall decor.
