HOW TO CHOOSE A CHILDREN’S FURNITURE
The need to purchase children’s furniture is not obvious to everyone. However, the child is growing, and he needs furniture that matches his physical development. Optimally, if it fits perfectly into the interior and dimensions of the apartment, and the child likes it, but this is not all that needs to be considered when choosing children’s furniture.
WHY DO YOU NEED A SPECIAL FURNITURE FOR A CHILD
It is important that the child likes the furniture. It is important that the child likes the furniture.
Too oversized furniture, unsuitable for height and age, makes the child strain the muscles of the back, neck, legs. If he constantly sits in an uncomfortable position, then this leads to further problems with the spine, joints, ligaments.
A tabletop raised too high means that the child’s eyes will be too close to the surface of the table, which means that conditions will be created for the development of pathologies of vision.
In addition, the child needs his own corner, in which he will independently maintain order, where he can play as much as he wants, draw, sculpt.
AGE – MAIN CRITERION

Furniture for the child should be purchased by age. If the child is very small, then the main furniture for him is a crib, a chest of drawers, a changing table, possibly a separate wardrobe. When a child grows up (at about 3 years old), he will already need a bed with a more spacious berth, a children’s table and a chair suitable for the size of classes, drawers, baskets for storing toys. A schoolboy needs a computer or desk, a separate wardrobe for clothes and books. A wide range of children’s furniture for all ages is presented in yourroom store.
In order not to have to update the furniture too often, it is best to choose a chair with height adjustment (legs should rest on the floor, located at a right angle), sometimes the table also has the ability to adjust. Moreover, the desk should be square or rectangular, so that the elbows were not on weight during writing. In addition, the child must reach all the shelves where the things that he uses daily are located.
FOR SMALL ROOMS FURNITURE-TRANSFORMER
Furniture must be selected taking into account the dimensions of the room, if the room is small, it is best to choose a transforming one – it saves a lot of space. There are many similar options: these are comfortable children’s corners for two or three children with bunk or three-tier beds, both stationary, located one above the other, and sliding over each other. Recently, loft beds have gained popularity: at the top there is a sleeping place, and at the bottom there is a work or play area. The bed can easily be transformed into a desk in the daytime or transformed from a full bed to a small sofa. It is important to think about storage places, for example, convenient linen boxes can be located under the bed or on the steps of the stairs leading to the second floor of the children’s complex.

If furniture is purchased for several children, it is important to individualize it for everyone, even if you purchase a standard children’s corner. For example, if in the choice of the complex it was possible to compromise, let the children choose the chairs that they like.
SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTALITY
It is important to pay attention to the safety and environmental friendliness of children’s furniture.
It is best to give preference to that furniture for which there are relevant certificates.
For security reasons, it is recommended to purchase furniture with rounded corners without glass and mirror inserts.
When choosing upholstery, preference should be given to materials on which dust accumulates the least, it should be well cleaned, but at the same time it should be breathable.
The best option for a children’s room is wooden furniture covered with non-toxic compounds. Fittings should not be unscrewed.
Coloring furniture should not hurt the eyes. Despite the fact that furniture for children can be colorful. Colors should be as neutral as possible so that they do not irritate vision. Bright colors can only be used as accents.
