Consider several variables before arranging a bedroom for kids. Available floor area, along with the number and ages of children sharing a room has a significant impact on a room arrangement. Also, determine the desired activities you would like the bedroom to accommodate when making your floor plan. Designing a space arrangement on paper before you start to randomly move furniture pieces can save you time and energy.
Stretch a tape measure to measure the width and length of the bedroom to determine available floor area. Sketch the corresponding dimensions onto a sheet of chart paper, using one chart block to equivalent 12 inches. Measure the doors, doors and built-ins, and add those on your sketch. Also, note on the sketch the approximate location of electrical outlets and wall switches. Measure any furniture pieces you’d like to utilize, and sketch each bit to scale on a separate piece of chart paper. Cut out the furniture pieces to help you produce your space arrangement.
Dividing the space into zones will give you an idea of available floor space for desired actions. Create four equal zones on your own bedroom sketch. Rank the cutout of your kid’s bed in one zone. A bed is usually placed facing the door against a wall. You might require two zones for sleeping when two or more children are sharing the exact same room. Designate a desired activity — like studying, lounging, watching television, using the computer, playing board games or drawing — for each of the remaining zones. Position paper furniture pieces in each zone which are wanted for each chosen activity. As an example, a study zone typically requires a student desk, chair and bookshelf.
A child’s room may get cluttered, unorganized and dysfunctional without organized storage. Closet organizers are ideal for providing neat and orderly storage areas. Racks, shelves, fireplace, cupboard units, hooks and baskets can be united to supply a custom-designed closet organizer for your kid’s room. Built-in bookshelves and cabinets give permanent storage space in a room. Toy chests, open cubicles, wall cupboards, storage benches, armoires, dressers and chests of drawers are standalone storage options. Plastic baths made to fit under a bed or under-the-bed drawers offer additional storage area.
In smaller bedrooms shared with a few children, consider bunk beds, in addition to furniture pieces which function more than one function, to conserve precious floor space. As an example, a small table and chairs is ideal for playing games, hosting a tea party, putting together a model, or cutting a picture. Some bunk beds also come with attached desks, chests of drawers and storage steps built to a single space-saving unit. Place a very low pair of open shelves between 2 twin beds to divide a space, giving each kid his own personal space. A themed area rug — like a race track, farm, alphabet, outer area, jungle or laziness — generates a cozy spot to perform.
