No matter what age your child is, furnishing their nursery is always a challenging process. From baby-proofing the furniture to maximizing storage for the endless heaps of toys, books and clothes, functionality is the primary goal of this space, but it doesn’t have to be at the cost of aesthetics. Our designers at Metrika promise to help you make the most of your child’s room, all while retaining maximum levels of cute.
- Stackable furniture
Having plenty of floor space available for play time is a must, and the best way to achieve this is stackable furniture. For example, a desk with a built in niche for the chair not only helps with organization, but it also dedicates a space for learning time vs. playtime.
- Baby proof vs baby friendly cabinets
Baby proofing storage shelves and cabinets is a no brainer while planning a nursery, but not all of it has to be ‘stowed away’. Research shows that a sense of responsibility can be inculcated from an early age by rewarding your child for putting away their toys by themselves when playtime is over. To enable this, baby-friendly padded storage shelves can be installed at ground level to ensure safety and encourage early development.
- Storage coverage
The need for storage in a growing child’s room cannot be emphasized enough. To this purpose, it’s a good idea to furnish the room with storage compliant pieces that can serve as quick hacks for an easy clean up. From puffed ottomans with inbuilt space to pull out drawers under beds, there is no such thing as too much storage.
- A multipurpose nook
A cozy reading nook is universally adored by all children and adults alike, and is perhaps the most ideal utilization of a corner area. Not only can this space serve as a bed, but it could also comprise of in-built shelves on each side for books and toys, all while resting upon copious amounts of storage space at the bottom.
A children’s room requires planning with a practical approach and long-term perspective in mind, as your child grows and outgrows their surrounding at a rapid pace. Our designers and space consultants at Metrika can help you plan this room to serve as an optimal environment for your child to grow up in.
