Kids’ furniture: the Belvisi guide

When you’re building the family home of your dreams, some rooms are visualised more easily than others. Knowing the look and feel you want to create for your living space, your kitchen and your own bedroom is one thing and no doubt it’s something you’ve had a lot of fun thinking over. But what about the kids? These can be the trickiest rooms to plan effectively.

Simply asking them what they’d like to have in their rooms is sure to provoke some interesting feedback. A child’s imagination is a fantastic thing and it’s well worth listening to in order to get an idea of what makes for a stimulating space that they’ll love. However, when it comes to translating this explosion of suggestions into reality it can often prove a bewildering experience.

Practical furniture for kids

The most basic consideration when choosing the best bedroom furniture for your children always has to be practicality. What’s perfect for a two-year old will quickly get outgrown and by the time they hit four they may well be clamouring for an update.

Nobody knows your little one better than you do, so think about how you want them to develop. Plan ahead to choose colours and furniture styles which they’ll enjoy now and grow to love as the years (quickly) pass.

Practicality is also about durability. There is no test of durability on Earth like that which comes from frequent interaction with young, inquisitive hands and feet. Do your homework on top children’s furniture brands like Battistella, a manufacturer we work closely with due to their reputation for outstanding craftsmanship. When all is said and done, durability equals safety and for a room where your child will be spending a lot of time unsupervised, you need to know their furniture is up to the challenge.

Make the most of kids’ bedroom space

One thing that you’ll need to keep in mind at all times is storage. Toys are great, they’re the building blocks of your child’s imagination, but where are they all going to go at bedtime? Toy boxes are all well and good, but too many will quickly take up the floor space kids use to play.

Our bespoke interior design service can bring an expert eye to your child’s bedroom and spot innovative solutions for making the most of available floor space. Why not take a look at a bunk bed with the bottom bunk swapped out for drawers or a desk? You might also consider something along the lines of our Victor bed with pull-out drawers, desk and even a guest bed.

Of course, there’s always the traditional approach to storage in the form of wardrobes for kids that are packed with character and personality. Whether you’re looking for a free-standing piece or something built into your wall, all furniture from Belvisi is built to order so the options for customisation are limitless.

Make it fun!

With all the boring grown-up stuff out of the way, you can focus on what’s really important: creating a fun space in which your little ones will love spending time! One bit of feedback we get from parents time and time again is that a bedroom from Belvisi is one that kids want to be in. We create a unique and inspiring space which will reflect the personality of your child and give them room to explore, create and develop.

Consider characterful pieces like the Battistella bunker bed and the Torre bed on big, chunky castor wheels. When dealing with trusted manufacturers, there’s no reason why kids’ bedroom furniture can’t be durable, safe and a joy to look at all at once.

Even relatively ordinary furniture like a wardrobe can help reflect unique personality. Something like the Woody wardrobe, with its sleek design and chunky, odd-sized handles can become an enduring favourite in the right surroundings.

As your children get older, their sense of fun matures and refines. When it comes to choosing modern bedroom furniture for teenagers, you’ll not only have some more realistic feedback, but you can also focus on pieces which are as stylish and chic as they are well-made. Here at Belvisi we’re proud to provide the most cutting-edge contemporary teens’ furniture direct to our customers in the UK to help them find the right atmosphere in which to leap towards adulthood.
