“All sleep and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Your little one’s room doesn’t have to be just for sleeping! Children’s furniture has expanded to create a space that serves many purposes. The Taos Lifestyle Design Team knows just how to mix fun and functionality. Get ready to transform your child’s bedroom from ordinary into an extraordinarily personalized space!
Loft beds with a built-in desk provide a fantastic place for homework by day and restful slumber at night. Options include drawers and shelves for added storage. These versatile furniture combinations grow with your child. And with not one but two beds, your home will be the sleepover destination!
Fun and Funky Frames
Have you run out of space on the refrigerator to display your child’s artwork? Why not transform their bedroom into a personal gallery! A brilliant way to keep their works of art in constant rotation is to use frames that open in the front. This makes it easy to switch their masterpieces out regularly. Clipboards hung on a wall serves as another funky “frame” option. Kids will love seeing their work highlighted!
Where there are kids, there are toys and lots of them! Take control of the chaos by setting up storage throughout the bedroom. Remember to keep storage bins and clothing hooks at a kid-friendly height for trouble-free reach. Toy chests aren’t just for toys. Use them to store spare sheets for a quick change, blankets for chilly nights, and extra pillows.
Reading is Fundamental!
Encourage reading by stocking a bookcase with your child’s favorite books. Easily create a special reading nook with fun floor pillows, a bean bag, or throw pillows. Make sure the area is well-lit so those little eyes aren’t strained. This cozy space will help kids unwind after a hard day of vocabulary words and kickball. Classics like Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree” and “Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown are favorites of all ages. Don’t forget the bookmarks!
