Wood furniture for children’s rooms whether it’s a playroom or the bedroom is a sensible and practical outlay in terms of quality as products are extremely durable if in solid woods such as beech and oak. Oak is one of the most popular hardwoods used in furniture manufacturing and its strength will ensure it stays looking good whatever is inflicted on the surface.
Kids can be rough when they play and things get broken a lot more easily when they are around! Marks and scratches appear on tables, dents magically appear, and handles get broken off scuff and so on, so it makes sense to invest in styles that are going to last through the growing up years.
If you would like to look at the products together with your child then take a day to visit the local department stores and see what they have. If you don’t have time to shop or live far from town there are plenty of online specialty stores with lots of choices and exclusive designs.
Once you start looking you’ll find all kinds of styles and ranges available in kids stuff, spend a few hours surfing the internet and you’ll soon be inspired by the bright colours and exciting designs out there. Whether you’re looking for desks, toy chests, tables with chairs, book shelves, or a whole bedroom set then you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Kids’ furniture looks fantastic painted but just as good in its natural colour, traditional and modern designs help to create a sense of peace and calmness.
The excellent workmanship and detail that is put into furniture designs in hardwood far surpasses any other kind of material, chests of drawers and bedside tables in plastic, plywood or veneers won’t last anywhere near as long as wood does and will soon show signs of wear and tear. Although wood gets worn too it just adds to its attraction whereas any other material will look shabby and tired after a year or so.
Online stores who specialise in wooden oak furniture and pine bedside tables for children believe in good quality and affordable prices. Get the kids involved when choosing as it is their room and it’ll make them take more pride in what you buy and hopefully look after it better.
The main items you might want for your child’s room is a bed, bedside table, mirror, desk and chair so they have their own place to eat, colour, and do crafts or read, and a wardrobe. Don’t buy too much as kids need space to run around and play and the bedroom should be the place they can do this freely without you yelling at them. Start with the bed and work your way round from there, once this has been picked out complete the room with a matching dresser, side table, and toy box.
Pay careful attention to the workmanship and how the joints are put together as this will tell you if they are strong and sturdy enough to have youngsters climbing all over them. Chairs and tables or desks should be designed small enough to allow the little people to get on and off them comfortable without your help, and beds frames too. Free standing cheval mirrors are a great addition to any room as they are attractive and large enough to check yourself from every angle, and conveniently can be moved around the house if required.
High quality solid wood items generally stay in the family for generations and get passed down to younger members as they in turn acquire property and get married and have families. As the years go by and the item starts to look worn and faded you can either choose to leave it as it is with lots of character and memories, or have it refurbished or re-varnished depending on your taste. The great thing about oak furniture is that your initial investment more than pay for itself over the years.
Keep these guidelines in mind when buying children’s furniture and you’ll find safe, pleasing furniture that will tolerate years of being pulled, played on and whacked!
