Tips for Setting Up your Child's Bedroom

Now more than ever there are plenty of options for setting up your children's bedrooms so they meet their needs today and their changing needs tomorrow. Here are some tips for picking the right children's furniture that will give you and your child the storage, functionality and flexibility you are looking for.

Plan Ahead

Your child's bedroom is likely to be a smaller space, so you have to plan well before you purchase furniture for the room. It is a good idea to get some graph paper and keep the measurements of each piece in mind before you make your purchases so you are sure they fit.

When you represent the furniture in the room, use a scale of 1 inch to represent 1 foot. Make sure to indicate where the windows and doors come in so you can decide on a good layout.

A tall chest allows for additional drawers, while an armoire may have space for hanging clothes or even hiding the TV.
