How to Select Kids Furniture

When selecting furniture for your child’s bedroom, the most important factor to keep in mind is the age (or age group) of your child.  Think about your child and their needs today, tomorrow and a few years in the future. As you narrow down the options for furniture, think of these two great ways to simplify the furniture decision-making process:

  • Be Fun: Kids furniture is available in a variety of fun styles, designs and colors. Look for furniture that has a vibrant style and refreshing design to instill a creative and dream-like atmosphere in the room.
  • Be Practical:  Aside from being attractive, the furniture should also be practical in use. It should be comfortable so that the child can get an adequate amount of sleep and rest.

Here are two great options from Chicago furniture retailer, The RoomPlace.  The Sundance collection has a casual, carefree look that kids love. Made of ponderosa pine and safety features that offer sturdy construction this bedroom set will be enjoyed for years to come. A great options for young girls is the Rainbow Girls Bedroom Collection. With a splash of color in a natural white finish, this bedroom set is playful and fun!

Lighten Up Your Dining Area!

A key secret to decorating success is decorative rugs. Available in a variety of styles, shapes, colors and textures, light-colored rugs can open up a space to make it feel larger.  Whether you want to make a small breakfast room seem bigger, or make a large living room feel even more open, light color carpeting could provide the effect you’re seeking.  The neutral tones of the carpets in our Brandy and Malorie dinettes, shown below, mimic the natural elements of the deep brown veneers in the table and chairs.  Carpets and rugs have become a focal point for interior design, so don’t make a hasty decision and don’t be afraid to go with a fresh, light and bright look.
