Children's room areas
Ideas for the play area
- Make sure there is enough space for them to play. Even in the smallest children's room, there is sure to be a corner that is suitable as a play area.
- Select the play possibilities according to your child's interests. After all, your little treasure should enjoy it.
- Do not overload the play area with too many toys. Too much choice overwhelms our little ones.
- Colours encourage creative play. Make your play area in the children's room colourful, but don't overdo it.
- Sufficient storage space provides structure and organisation in the play area.
Ideas for the sleeping area
- Choose a quiet place in the children's room as the sleeping area.
- A cosy bed is half the battle. If necessary, make sure it has a fall-out guard, especially if your child moves around a lot while sleeping.
- Use calm colours in the sleeping area. Cold colours such as blue are generally considered calming, while warm colours such as red are more stimulating.
- A small light makes children feel particularly comfortable in the sleeping area. However, the light should not be too bright.
- Let your child choose 1-2 stuffed animals to take to bed. Too many cuddly toys in bed are often distracting.
Ideas for the dressing area
- The dressing area in the children's room should offer enough storage space so that you can keep track of the children's clothes.
- Many children like to help choose their clothes. A children's wardrobe at eye level helps them to do this.
- Clean out the wardrobe in the children's room regularly. Clothes that no longer fit take up unnecessary space in the dressing area.
- With a structured organisation in the dressing area, you always know where to find which clothes and don't have to rummage around.
- Organise the wardrobe sensibly: In summer, for example, thick jackets can be placed high up where you can't reach them quickly.
Ideas for storage & organisation
- Make sure there is enough space for toys, painting utensils and books in the children's room. A shelf or cupboard system will help.
- Boxes and crates are a good choice to keep your children's room in organisation . After the Lego game, all the figures and bricks simply go back into the box.
- Establish an order structure in the children's room together with your child. This way, puzzles, cars and crayons always have a fixed place.
- Children's shelves at eye level help your child to keep organisation independently.
- Sort out toys and books regularly. Things that are no longer played with or are broken make room for new things.
Ideas for children's room walls
- When designing your children's room walls, look for light and calm colours. If the wall decoration is too colourful, the room will quickly look squat.
- You can set stylish accents with small details such as a wall tattoo.
- Combine the wall decoration with storage space. A wall shelf in the children's room provides both storage and decoration.
- Let your child participate in the design of the nursery walls and choose colours or elements that they like.
- Choose the wall decoration according to the purpose of the children's room area.
