Kid's Room Furniture

Furnishing a Kid’s Room

There are two ways to go when designing a kid’s room-elaborate or simple. Doing an elaborate theme in a kid’s room can be so fun! However, your child could outgrow the theme in a matter of years. But if simple is not quite your style, D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling thinks that there is a way to meet in the middle by choosing furnishings that will last through changing themes and growing kids.

When it’s time to move the crib out of the room and put in a big kid’s bed, D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling thinks going with a true big kid bed is a great option. Let your toddler sleep in a twin-sized bed. Bedding and the like can be changed throughout their growth without having to replace the mattress each time. 

Let’s face it. Each year, your kid grows out of the pants, the shirts, and the shoes. Pick a dresser that will not skimp on the clothing storage and make sure the closet is set up to accept bigger and bigger sizes. Right now, the room needs toy storage more than anything. D.J.’s Painting andRemodeling thinks it is possible to find pieces that hold the toys right now and be replaced by other things as they grow.

Make your kid’s room fun for them and easy for you to transition as they grow by making wise choices about the furniture you pick. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling believes it can be easy to go from fun and childlike to a look of maturity using the same furniture if you plan it right!

Playroom Features

Essential Playroom Items (and some Not-so-essential ones)

A play room is meant for play, but there are some aspects that will make the room an ideal play space for your child. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling thinks that a few key features should be a part of every play room.

Work Table
When it’s time to craft, draw, paint, write, or wherever the creative winds carry your kid, you’ll want to make sure there is space for them to let their imagination go free! Put a table in the play room and have a space for tools and supplies they will need to put their hands to work.

Space to Play
For those play times that require massive building block towers or long race tracks, fairy kingdoms or restaurants of hungry guests, make sure there is some clear space in the play room to move about. Make the space colorful with a rug or leave it up to your kid to cover the space with the toys of the day!

The worst pain in the world is stepping on a stray Lego piece. With the right storage, those Lego blocks can have a place to stay when not in use besides under your feet. Bins and crates for toys and shelves for books are the building blocks of great storage in a play room that can leave plenty of room for play and for mom and dad’s sanity.

A play room does not have to be all about logistics. There are so many ways to make a playroom fun and unique with elements for your child to expound upon. Give them a stage in the corner of the room to put on concerts or a wall covered with chalk board paint that they can draw on to their heart’s desire. D.J.’s Painting and Remodeling firmly believes that when designing a playroom, paying attention to the details can make a big difference in your child’s play time by giving them something for their imagination to work with!
