contemporary furniture for children bedroom



Kids beds are important elements of save and functional kids room design. When your child is ready to leave the crib, you do not need to buy a toddler bed. A simple bed frame or a mattress and box spring set on the floor will provide a nice place for rest.

Later a sturdy bed and a good-quality mattress and box spring will give a growing kid the support the body needs to rest comfortably. Experts advise replacing mattresses at least every ten years. You can always repaint or refinish the beds frame and add a new good-quality mattress.

Always use a box spring with the mattress. The box spring supports the mattress so it can support the body. For health reasons, do not use hand-me-down mattresses, and think twice about taking other upholstered pieces for creating attractive, safe and functional kids room design. Quilts, linens and other fabric items that can be washed are fine for kids rooms.

Selecting a mattress for kids bedroom

Kids need to test several mattresses in the store. Consider foam, air and flotation options also. If you are considering foam, make sure the material is supportive enough. Plan to use a coordinating electric heater with any flotation system. An innerspring mattress should be firm but not hard and include pillow-top cushioning.

Every body is different, so let your child look at few beds and try out several mattresses. A nice, firm and good-quality mattress used every day should be one your child select as very comfortable.
