A buyer's guide to kids' furniture

Picking out children's furniture can be simple if you keep in mind the durability, your child's preferences and the sale date of the nearest furniture store. It is important to choose both convenience and durability when selecting items. Do you have twins or two children sharing a room? Be practical and choose bunk beds. Do you have a genius on the way, but have little space in his or her room? Choose beds with desks attached to them.

Durability

Durability is something that should be strongly considered when choosing children's furniture. Children can be rambunctious. Keep your children's habits into consideration when choosing the furniture.
Do they like to paint? While they think that their crayoned rainbow is beautiful, you might not feel the same way when you are scrubbing it off a new wooden dresser. Look for furniture that is durable, sturdy and easy to clean.

Child's age

Take the age of your child into consideration before purchasing furniture for his or her bedroom. Infants grow at a constant rate and this won't be stopping anytime soon. If your child is no longer in a crib or little bed, consider to buy a single or double bed for them. Bedroom sets are expensive and aren't something that you will want to be repurchasing every few years. Make the transition now. Is your child at a transitional age? If so, choosing a juvenile or at least, much younger style in furniture and design might make him feel unhappy. If your child is old enough, ask him to tell you what he likes. This should not sway your decision, as parents know best, but having his opinion might help you with your decision.

Look for sales

This is a no brainer. If you are shopping for children's furniture to decorate a bedroom or otherwise, look for sales in your local paper, kids' store or online. Remember that you don't want to buy your child cheap quality furniture that is going to break and needs replacement. Buy quality furnitures which are on sale. Buying second-hand furnitures is another option, but be sure to ask a lot of questions as furniture can have bed-bugs, smell like smoke or have stains.

The pieces

The pieces which you choose should not only match your child’s theme and space, but should also consist of selected pieces. When buying children's bedroom furniture, make a list of a bed, night stand, dresser, toy box or bin and perhaps, a table and fluffy chairs for a sit-down area. Make sure that you buy something for your child to put his or her toys away in, as this will help with clean-up time.
