A guide to buying kids' shelves

Kids’ shelves in children’s rooms should not only be aesthetic, and complementary to the rest of the furniture, but they should be functional and have more than one purpose, in order to be a proper investment. This article will thus provide a guide to buying kids' shelves.

Size and style

Bookcases for kids, small shelves to fit smaller rooms and even playroom storage, are found in most furniture stores, or at specific children’s furniture stores. When buying kids' shelves, it is important to consider the size of the room, the colours of the room, as well as the function and price. Size of the room Kids' shelves should, like all other shelves and furniture pieces in a house, fit the room they are placed in. If your child has a small room, try buying shelves as small as possible. This is because you would want to leave space for closets, a bed, toy-storage and, of course, open space for the child to play. Only, consider bookshelves if the child is old enough to read and understand certain books, otherwise, it will take up unnecessary space. Colour scheme of the room Consider the colour scheme of the room. Children usually prefer lighter, brighter and a variety of colours. However, there is still a way to remain classy with different shades of one colour or complimentary colours (for example, if the room is purple, a yellow shelf will look appealing).

Functionality

Functions of the shelves You must remember that a child’s room changes, as he or she grows up, and that the kids' shelves will change their functions as time goes by. Hence, you must buy a bookcase for a younger child, if you can use it for something else in the meantime, like for toy storage. Later, if the room changes to match an older personality, you can paint over it and use it for books. Storage tubs and small shelves are useful for a variety of toys and items. You need to just make sure that they do not take up too much of space. Opt for low prices You must remember that a child’s room can get extremely dirty, and furniture is not always safe. You need to make sure that you do not invest too much money in kids' shelves or kids' furniture overall. If you know that you want to buy a temporary item, that will only be in use for a short period of time, you can rather buy cheaper plastic, instead of more expensive wood. Also, you must never buy oaks or other costly materials, because children cannot recognise the value of such items. You can invest in more expensive pieces when they grow older.
