When remodelling a kid’s bedroom it is vital to look at the safety aspects of the space, we may not be able to monitor them all the time, but the best we can do is look at ways to avoid accidents. It is important that furniture such as bedside tables, cabinets and chest of drawers be fixed to the floor, while bearing in mind that shelves should not be out of reach. It is also best to consider a bed that is lower to the ground, just in case they fall off the bed. Try to look at the bedroom as a potential hazard… small children are experts in seeking out dangerous spots!
The bed choice is the perfect opportunity to involve children! Whether it’s a castle, car or even just a bed in a vibrant colour, any child will have a creative idea about where they want to sleep.
