Your child will probably spend a large amount of time in his or her bedroom. Why not make the room a fun place to go during the day or after school? There are several themes to choose from and colors to incorporate when it comes to the bedroom. You can also find a variety of accessories that are sure to put a smile on your child’s face.

The Nursery

The bassinet or crib is the first place your child will sleep. You need to determine what kind of crib you want such as wood or metal. A metal crib might last through one child, or it could last for several children. These are often easy to clean as all you have to do is wipe them down with a cloth. A wooden crib is normally more durable, and there are usually more options when it comes to wooden cribs. Some of them convert to a toddler and a full-size bed. There are also different shades to choose from including cherry and light oak. You can coordinate the bedding with the crib to make the nursery of your dreams.

The Toddler Years

When your child outgrows the crib, you will need a toddler bed or perhaps a twin bed. A toddler bed has rails on one or both sides so that the child doesn’t fall if he or she happens to roll on one side. Toddler beds also come in either wood or metal material, though most companies such as Baby Furniture Plus Kids have a wider selection of wooden beds compared to metal or even plastic.

Older Children

This is the age where children start to show their personality through decorating their room. It begins with the bed and the type of bedding placed on the bed. You can get a twin bed, futon, bunk beds or a full-size bed for your child’s room. When it comes to bunk beds, there are a few different types to choose from. You can get one with twin beds on the top and bottom or you can find bunk beds with a twin on top and full bed on the bottom. Some beds have a bookcase for the headboard, and there are some that have drawers on the bottom of the bed.
