Building a Fun and Functional Kids Bedroom

Building a bedroom for your child can be a bit tricky, as there are a lot of things to consider. While you want to select furniture your child will love, you also want to make sure that the furniture you choose is strong enough to withstand daily wear and tear. Having an ample amount of storage space is another point of importance, and without it, your child’s room can quickly go from cute to cluttered. At Ivan Smith Furniture, we want to lend a hand. Follow our three helpful tips and you’ll have no problem building a bedroom both you and your child will adore.   

Choose a Bedroom Theme

The key to creating a bedroom that your child will love is choosing a theme that reflects their likes and interests. If your child is interested in flowers or cars or simply loves the color red, you should find a way to incorporate that into their bedroom decor. Every single item in the room doesn’t need to fit the theme—you just need a few eye-catching themed items placed throughout. Perhaps the most affordable way to establish a theme is by purchasing distinctive kids bedroom accents. We sell playful lamps, throw pillows, and even bedding that will add a dose of fun and color to your child’s bedroom.

Choose Smart Storage Solutions

Keeping your child’s bedroom clean will always be a challenge, so it helps to have efficient storage furniture. Instead of filling your child’s room with a never-ending assortment of toy chests, bins, and shelves, opt for furniture options that multitask. For example, we have a collection of space-saving storage beds that include an array of drawers and compartments that allow you to store books, toys, and more, all in one convenient place.

Plan for the Future

When buying furniture for your child’s bedroom, it pays to put some thought toward the future, specifically when it comes to selecting a bed. Children are constantly growing, and if you don’t want to keep buying a new bed every time they have a growth spurt, remember that bigger is better. While they may comfortably fit in a Twin size bed right now, when you child hits their teen and preteen years, they will likely need a Full size bed, so take that into consideration when making your final selection.
