A baby room becomes a child's room
Want to go faster, further, higher? More space for more action in a child's room.
The baby has made his first steps and from now on he'll discover the world on two legs. His self-confidence will grow with every metre he covers, and his own play area will literally expand.
To ensure that the living space reflects the little one's desire to exercise and let off steam, a few changes now need to be made to the child's room:
- The baby wants and is now able to get out of his cot on his own. To allow this, remove individual bars or a whole side of the cot – but at first just do this during the daytime.
- For princesses and astronauts: If there's a (starry) sky above the bed, going to sleep will be even more fun.
- Play corner: Having a dedicated area for this in the child's room or living room is important for the child's development. You need to provide a soft floor covering and a shelf which can be used to store toys and picturebooks.
- Furniture for little children: Whether it's from a designer or the local furniture store, the furniture needs to be child-friendly and stable. A great idea for intrepid little children is multifunctional furniture where the table and chair can be transformed into spaceships, doll's houses and hideouts (Internet search tip: "Themed furniture").
- Mural art: Stencils and the new wall stickers from the local furniture store or the Internet can be used to create colourful art and children's motifs on the wall.
