When you're planning your child's bedroom, it's important to balance function, safety and style. Think practically about how the room will be used. Will it also serve as a playroom or study? Is there a chance it may eventually become a room for two? Let the activities your child loves most be your guide as you choose furnishings and accessories. Will they need a chair to read in? Plenty of open floor space for blocks and games? Factor in how their interests may change and grow as they get older. Toddlers often need a play table for arts and crafts while school-age kids require desk. Make sure your plan allows for plenty of room to grow, change and evolve.
