Believe it or not, today is national “Clean your Room Day.” (We can hear the applause of every parent in the country). While the master bedroom is a destination for relaxing, you may have different priorities for your child’s room. So what makes a good space for the little guy or girl? Here’s our list:
Versatility: Kids grow up fast. Let your child’s room grow with them by using pieces that can be moved around and rearranged to fit their needs. For example, he can start off in a bunk bed that he shares with his little brother. When he gets a bit older, make the room his own with just the twin bed or choose a loft bed with a desk underneath. Storage options are also great for kids so they can keep their room clean (woohoo!) and stay organized.
Safety: You worry enough as a parent; don’t let your child’s bedroom be a cause for concern. Find pieces that are tested with safety in mind. At Havertys, all our kids’ furniture is tested for lead content in the surface coatings and component parts. Weight tests are also used for the wood slats on beds. For kids’ desks with hutches, the two pieces are attached with brackets on the back.
Fun! This one’s a no-brainer! Let kids be kids by adding color, character and excitement to their space. Go girly with a bright pink rug and flowery bedding. Or make his space as imaginative as he is with a patchwork bedding set and puppy prints!
