Toddler room makeover

Creative ideas to make your child's room grow with them through the years.

Mattress and furniture tips:

  • Invest in furniture that will grow with your child. Think long term, even college.

  • When kids first come out of a crib the most important thing is get them on a bed that's fairly low to the ground. A trundle bed is a great idea. Plus, as they get older they can move up to the taller bed and then you have extra room in the house for company.

  • You want to buy a good mattress for your child. Kids are growing during these younger years and it's really important to have them on something very supportive. You want to get something with a firm coil count on the inside, but nice plush padding on top. You're going to need to spend between a hundred and three hundred dollars for a good twin mattress and it should last a good eight to ten years.

  • The benefit of a good mattress pad is for a couple of reasons; for the moisture barrier, when kids are growing and still having possible accidents on a mattress. Their immune systems aren't as good as adults so it's important to have something that's going to protect them from the bed mites and all the other things that can cause problems within a kid's room.
Décor tips:
  • Use a low VOC paint. You can get that at almost any paint store. It is low in chemicals so it smells better, it is not as bad for the environment and you don't have a lot of fumes in the air which is perfect for a kid's room.

  • You can never have too much storage for kids. Use baskets to organize toys, books & misc. items.

  • Don't be afraid to mix different wood tones. It can add a unique feel to the room.

  • You want to invest in the big pieces, not in the other stuff which is going to get dirty, or torn or outgrown, that's where you save your money.
