Five Must-Have Items for a Kid's Bedroom

Are you in the process of designing a kid's bedroom? Whether this is your first crack at a kid's bedroom or you’ve got a few under your belt, it doesn’t hurt to give the design some thought. A kid's bedroom is unique in that you need to think of the space from a child’s point of view. This means the design elements and the placement of the furniture will be different from an “adult” space.

Here we’ll take a look at five must-have items that you’ll want to include as you design the ultimate kid's bedroom.

A Fun Carpet

Because kids tend to spend a lot of time in their room playing, it’s a wise idea to give them a comfortable surface to play on. This is a great opportunity to combine function with design, as you can give them a comfortable carpet to play on while making it something fun to look at. A great example of carpets for kids can be found at Big Warehouse Sale. You'll find a variety of "disco" carpets that feature fun sparkles in them. What a fabulous way to add colour, dimension, and fun to their room.

A Kid's Themed Clock

While this may not seem like a big deal, adding a clock to a child’s room is an excellent idea. If you have a child who is younger, it’s a perfect opportunity for them to start learning about time and to set a daily routine they can follow. There are a variety of fun clocks nowadays that are specifically made for kid's rooms. You can find models that project the time onto the ceiling, glow, talk, play lullabies, and more.

A Nightlight or an Item That Glows

Young ones can feel a bit nervous in a big room all by themselves at night, which is why it’s a good idea to give them something that glows. This can be in the form of a nightlight, a stuffed animal, a fun table lamp, or even glow in the dark decals/stickers on the wall and ceiling. Depending on how big the room is you may need a couple of glowing items placed in the room.

A Designated Reading Space

We all know how important reading is in a child's life, no matter their age, so why not give them a designated reading space in their room. This should include a bookshelf for all their favourite books, a comfortable chair (bean bag chairs work great), and a light.

Plenty of Storage Space

If your child tends to have a lot of toys and collectibles, you’ll also want to think about storage options. The storage should be a system that the child can use on their own so they are also encouraged to clean up after themselves.

Invite Them to Take Part

As you start to shop for all these must-have items, it’s a good idea to involve your child. After all, it is their space. It’s a great way to encourage their creativity and allow them to be part of setting up their room.

My #familysuperpowers with npower

npower have sent Peter and Emily Andre off around the country to seek out unique individuals who are parenting with amazing superpowers and I have been asked, by npower to share my story right here on the blog. 

All parents have superpowers and you really never know which one you will need next and when.  That's what parenting is all about - thinking on your feet, taking immediate action, doing whatever it takes, to SAVE THE DAY!

A Day in the life of a Super Hero with Matalan

Matalan Fancy Dress
My boys love Paw Patrol, as do a lot of 3 year olds and when Matalan got in touch to see if we would like to try out their new fancy dress items with a paw patrol theme, I agreed straight away as I knew the boys would be over the moon.
Matalan has just taken stock of a new range of fancy dress items for kids and the timing couldn't be better with World Book Day just around the corner. They have Batman, Ninja Turtles, Storm Troopers, Spider Girl, Anna from Frozen and lots more to choose from.

The Jungle Play Centre - Warrington.

The Jungle Warrington
We live quite close to The Jungle in Warrington and it's a place I have visited many times when they occupied the previous building.  I say previous, because they have now moved to bigger premises on Pinners Brow Retail Park, Warrington and they asked us if we fancied checking out the new location for a little review. We jumped at the chance, of course, as we were super keen to see what it was like.
