Planning a room for a brand new baby or redesigning a room for your tween or teen is a fun project with limitless possibilities. If you have a blank canvas, you’ll want to invest in great furniture that will either age well with your child, be passed down to siblings or even sold later on. Freedom offers an incredible range of furniture for kids – from little ones right up to young adults.
Kids’ rooms should be segmented if possible into four different spaces; a sleeping space, a play space, a study space and a storage space.
The bed is the most important piece along with the mattress. If you like to lie with your child at night or nap time, a roomy king single bed will ensure your comfort as well as his or hers. The soft pink of the Bobbie Fabric bed sets a dreamy tone for the room or you could opt for the navy which is fabulous for a nautical theme. More mature looking beds for older kids are investments as they can be styled to any décor theme, like the natural Bungalow bed.
The play space can be replaced by the work place as children grow up. Little ones will benefit from a table and chairs set for craft projects, playdough and colouring-in activities. Make sure the height of the set you choose is size appropriate for your child’s age – they’ll need to be able to get on and off the chairs and reach the table-top comfortably.
Desk and chair sets are important for studying, finishing homework and completing projects. A small corner of the room can house a functional desk for a computer, notebook and pen. Choose a great table lamp for extra light and a throw for late afternoon sessions.
Whether your kid is knee-high or a teenager, mess will be an ongoing battle. Simple storage is the answer to constructive clutter. Some of our incredible beds are gas lift designs, which means they can store all kinds of sporting goods, toys and linen comfortably underneath the mattress. Bedside tables with drawers can also hide books, puzzles and games easily, while storage trunks are a quick and easy spot for soft toys and bulky clothing.
