Finding the right furnishings from a baby's room to a teenager's room can be a real challenge. In the children's room, it is important to create a space for the kids in which they feel comfortable and enjoy spending time. It's also where they play, romp, tinker and sleep. It is therefore important that the furniture is robust and offers plenty of storage space for toys. Children's rooms differ significantly according to gender and age. Therefore, it is important to respond to the needs of the child and instead of buying new children's furniture every few years, you should choose changeable and flexible furniture that grows with the age of the child and can be used multifunctionally.

Some tips for decorating the baby room

So that you are well prepared after the birth and your new family member also immediately feels comfortable, we tell you how to furnish rooms for babies optimally and child-friendly. The basic equipment includes:

  • Changing table
  • Baby cradle
  • Baby crib
  • Mattress + overlay/waterproof molton carpet pad
  • Comforter covers / fitted sheets
  • Sleeping bag
  • Closet

When furnishing your baby's room, you should pay particular attention to the issue of safety. Babies have completely different requirements for their children's room than children from the age of two and up. It is important that you pay attention to rounded corners and edges so that your baby cannot injure himself. In addition, surfaces and fabrics must not emit harmful substances, and the GS test mark is a good recommendation, as this furniture has been tested according to legal requirements. It is recommended to additionally fix pieces of furniture to the wall so that they cannot topple over. You should also immediately fit child-proof sockets throughout the apartment. You should also check the distance between the bars of a baby crib. They should only be far enough apart so that your child's head does not fit between them.

From when you should furnish a baby room

In general, there is no "right time" to decorate a baby's room. However, it is recommended to have the room furnished at the time of birth, as many parents want to have everything ready as early as possible so that they can concentrate completely on their new family member after the birth.

If you want to furnish your new baby room in gender-typical colors, you should wait until the doctor is sure whether you're expecting a boy or a girl, so you don't have to redecorate twice later. However, most baby furniture is fairly neutral as far as color schemes go. If you are already sure that you want your baby room to be bright and not too colorful, you can definitely buy and assemble the furniture in light wood tones early on. You can always choose the right color and accessories still choose after the gender is clear.

The choice of colors for the children's room for babies

Light blue for boys and pink for girls - these are the typical colors and mostly they are tradition in many children's rooms. However, there are many other beautiful colors. We recommend a warm basic color scheme, as it creates a pleasant and cozy atmosphere in the room. Children love it colorful, that's why bright colors in the room have a motivating and invigorating effect. However, you should decide whether you prefer to use bright colors in the wall design or rather in the furniture or accessories. Note that the children's room does not look too colorful, because toys are usually already very colorful. So the more restrained the basic colors are, the easier it is to set specific accents with pictures, bedding or pieces of furniture.

Time flies

You should also choose more age-appropriate toys and cater to the needs of children at this age. Children at this age start painting and crafting in kindergarten. They should also have the opportunity to do this at home. For this purpose, you should choose a creative place in the room with a size-appropriate table and chairs. Make sure, however, that you choose washable furniture without sharp edges. At some point, even a crib will slowly become too small, so you should reach for a bed that grows with your child. At this age, many children want a loft bed that they can use not only for sleeping but also as a cave, princess castle or knight's castle for playing and romping. In addition, these beds are very practical and space-saving, because under the bed is valuable storage space for toys. For toys such as cars, building blocks, books or dolls are particularly suitable shelves, whose compartments provide space for baskets or boxes.

A bookshelf that safely stores school books, notebooks and folders is also essential. Whether this is used as a corner shelf or room divider depends on the room situation. Of course, since the child is constantly growing, it is worth considering a larger closet or storage space, as many things accumulate over the years.

From children's room to youth room

Changing child and children's room

There comes a point when the cheerfully colorful children's room turns into a teenager's room. Toys like dollhouses, cars and stuffed animals slowly disappear into the attic and posters now hang on the wall instead. The children no longer feel comfortable among the colorful toys and need a change, as their interests now usually change completely. It is also important to create retreat or chill-out corners so that the youngsters can retreat alone or with their friends. Also, the work area is very important at this age, so that the children have a quiet place to do their homework. To do this, consider turning the children's room into a bedsit. Of course, not every family can afford a room makeover. That's why we'll show you how you can create a cool teenager's room together with your offspring and easily convert or transform already existing furniture.

Existing shelves in neutral tones can be ideally used as room dividers to visually divide the room into different areas. A cabinet or shelf with doors, you can change, for example, by replacing the doors or paint the shelf in a different color. After all, the most visually appealing change is achieved with paint. But usually it is enough to add a few extras or accessories to the furniture , giving it a new meaning. From a normal commode, you can create a make-up corner for girls with the help of a mirror above the dresser.

The furniture for the youth room

When you are ready to invest in new furniture for the youth room, there are many options and you should ensure your child has a say, because after all, your child needs to feel comfortable in the room. It is recommended to set up the workspace by the window, as natural light and fresh air helps with learning. Storage space also plays an important role as the teenager grows. Since the teenager is still growing, the desk or desk chair should be height adjustable. The small closet is usually no longer sufficient and must be expanded. This is because female teenagers in particular want more space for their shoes and clothes. Another way to create storage space for clothes are nice clothes rails in the room, where the girls can present their most beautiful clothes. In addition, for example, corner shelves, wall shelves, bookshelves and also room dividers and benches are very practical to create more storage space.

Tips and tricks for different sizes of the children's room

Children's rooms come in a wide variety of sizes.
We'll give you valuable tips to make the most of any size children's room.

Bed-sit room

There are super ways to convert the bedroom or teenager's room into a living room-bedroom. It is important for teenagers to have a retreat for themselves. At that age, it is common for teenagers to not necessarily always want to spend their free time chilling with their parents. That's why a sofa in the teen's room would be important so that they don't always have to be in bed. The sofa provides additional seating for friends and can be nicely integrated into the room. In addition, a nice little coffee table under a fluffy carpet. Whether you also want to allow your child to have their own TV is entirely up to you.

Furnish small children's room

Furnishing small children's rooms also works easily with the right furniture and accessories. For example, a bed with a shelf is space-saving and still offers the possibility to decorate the children's room. Another option is a loft bed. The free space under the bed can easily be used to store toys, as a workplace or simply as a den of robbers. Depending on whether the teenager is female or male, you can design the loft bed as a castle bed or a princess castle. Often in many children's rooms, the corners are not used to their full potential. We offer practical corner shelves that can be adjusted to fit the corner to the exact dimensions. Hanging nets are another option, as they quickly make lying around toys disappear. Baskets and boxes with additional seating are also ideal for children's rooms, so that chaos and clutter can be quickly eliminated. For this purpose, superfluous toys should be sorted out from the children's room to make room for play and new things. Furnish a small children's room is useful with floating furniture. These visually provide space and do not obstruct the view of the floor space of the room. Additionally, in a small children's room, the wall design should be more of a light tone or white, as white walls also make rooms appear larger. However, a completely white room looks bare, so colors and contrasts should not be missing. A single colored wall or wallpaper strip, murals or different colored cabinet doors or drawers create cozy atmosphere. Magnetic cabinet doors fascinate and replace an additional pinboard. Not to forget the right light. Clamp spots, for example, are mobile as well as space-saving and provide punctual light for playing and reading.

Furnish large children's room

Designing a large children's room has one decisive advantage: in principle, there are hardly any limits to your furnishings. So if the children's room has enough space, it should be well utilized, because children need a lot of space to romp and play. So that a large room does not look empty, you should also equip it with appropriately large furniture and suitable child-friendly accessories. But you should also leave some space in the room, because children can bring in their ideas. Because children like to build a cave or a camp out of blankets and pillows and rearrange the children's room furniture.

However, large rooms tend to be rather restless or cold. That's why it makes sense to structure the children's room and divide it into several zones. One possibility would be a sleeping area, a cozy reading corner, a workplace and of course an area for playing. To separate these areas visually well from each other, we recommend an open shelf from form.bar, which you can use as a room divider.

Storage for children's room

There is a law of nature in the children's room. Because no matter how big, there is always too little space for things that need to be stowed. There is no such thing as too small a room, only unsuitable furniture! In the beginning, there is still order in the baby's room, but as the years go by, the child needs more and more space, as many things such as toys accumulate. The room for babies becomes a children's room and soon a youth room. Shelves and cabinets are the classic storage furniture. Here it is important to adapt the furniture to the room situation as best as possible. If space is limited, it makes sense to buy a high shelf that makes the most of the room height. In addition, shelves with doors and drawers are advantageous, because they provide order and not all things are visible. Roll containers are also a good option to place under the desk. For this, you should design and take advantage of the children's room walls, so that wall shelves, commodes or a sideboard look good on the wall. A loft bed or a bed with integrated drawers is also very practical to store more things neatly. In addition, you should use the available window sill space available. Additional storage space is hidden in many places, the trick is to recognize it and make the best use of it.

Interesting ideas for the children's room in the attic

Children like to build hiding places from blankets and pillows. In a children's room in the attic, this is not a problem. The low ceilings can be optimally used to equip with cushions. This creates a cozy atmosphere and the low ceilings usually do not disturb the children anyway due to their small size. A children's room with sloping ceilings offers many cozy corners for reading, resting and listening to music. Under the sloping roof it is especially good to sleep and relax. If you place the bed directly under a slanted roof window, your child will have the opportunity to watch the stars at night. If there is no slanted roof window, you can also design the slanted wall with stars that glow in the dark and give off a soothing light at night. This way you won't need a night light for your child. When choosing furniture, we recommend custom-made furniture from form.bar, as it perfectly adapts to the slanted wall. Another solution is a beautiful tiered shelf, which makes the most of every angle and additionally becomes a highlight. Choose between different colors and create your individual unique piece for your offspring!
