Your child’s furniture often gets a bad reputation as it’s perceived to be messy and childish. However, that doesn’t always have to be the case.
In this post I will talk about 5 ways to incorporate your child’s furniture into your home.
Don’t be too serious
Child’s furniture is supposed to be fun for a reason. Try not to take things too seriously when it comes to buying furniture pieces for your child. You may wish to keep your decor plain and simple but also remember to include your child’s style and personality.
Don’t worry too much about things clashing or not matching. Your home is sure to be full of vibrancy and love regardless so try not to be too serious about furniture choices. It can be easy to want to stick to a certain style but this isn’t always the case.
Try to relax when it comes to making furniture decisions and don’t worry too much about your choices.
Keep it stylish
When picking out your child’s furniture you may think everything has to be incredibly childish and fun. However, this doesn’t always have to be the case.
You can keep a certain stylish element when incorporating your child’s furniture into your home. Choose pieces that will be timeless and last a long time. This will help to keep your home looking fresh and stylish.
Items like their bed, curtains and carpets can be kept stylish and modern without compromising on their child-friendliness. Incorporate their furniture into your home by buying key stylish pieces and then have more colourful pops of furniture elsewhere.
A kid’s table doesn’t necessarily have to be too outlandish. You can get plenty of child-friendly furniture that is both colourful but also colour coordinated. Just because it’s bright and colourful doesn’t mean that it can’t go with the rest of your furniture.
Consider buying neutral coloured furniture and then adding splashes of colour via prints and fabrics. Your child’s bedroom may be bright and colourful but their table and chairs for example, may be more muted.
You don’t have to stray from the colour scheme of your home if you don’t want to. After all, you’re the one purchasing the furniture so it is ultimately your decision. Think about the furniture pieces and where they’re going to be in your house. You can then colour coordinate your child’s furniture with the rest of your home.
Get your child’s opinion
Involving your child can help to incorporate your child’s furniture into your home much better. This is because you’ll be able to listen to their opinion on what they’d like.
Getting your child involved will also be much easier for both of you. There won’t be any surprises for your child when they’ve found out how you’ve decorated their room, for example.
Children always like to be involved in “grown up” decisions so they’re sure to appreciate you including them in your decisions for furniture in your home.
Be creative with your child’s furniture and storage
If you find yourself short of space in your home, you can get creative with storage.
Consider using your child’s furniture as a place for storing some items that you don’t need on display. If they have a large bookshelf for example, or lots of drawers then you can use these to save space.
Not only will this help you to maximise the space in your home, but you’ll also be able to incorporate your child’s furniture into your home more easily. Cluttered and scattered toys everywhere can make your home look a mess. Purchasing furniture that can store both adults and kids items will be a great addition to your home.
Your home will look much tidier and cleaner and your child’s furniture will also be seamlessly incorporated into your home.
It can be fairly difficult to incorporate your child’s furniture into your home. However, with careful planning and consideration, you’ll find that it’s much easier than it originally seems.
Utilise the space you have in your home and make the most out of your storage space. Keep things colourful and playful and don’t take your furniture choices too seriously. It’s important that your home is a wonderful place that the whole family can enjoy.
