Top tips for choosing kids furniture

Posted by formed on 29 October 2014

Children’s bedrooms are typically the most multi-functional rooms in the home, providing a place to sleep, store toys and clothes, play and relax. Here at Robes n Rails, we understand that choosing the correct furniture to fit with your child’s individual needs and personality can be a rather challenging task, which is why we have compiled a list of things to look out for if you are redecorating or updating your child’s room.


Combining stylish design with functionality, there are pieces of kids furniture perfect for every application. In an attempt to avoid a messy room and prevent clothes and toys from piling up on the floor, as much storage space needs to be created as possible while making an effort not to intrude on any activity areas.

Innovative, space saving fitted furniture, such as cabin beds with under/over bed storage and wardrobes with double doors and built-in shelving, are extremely effective ways of decluttering a room while not taking up any space themselves.

A neutral colour scheme for the fitted furniture ensures longevity as other features in the room can be changed as your child grows older but the durability and style of the furniture will last for many years to come. It is important that any piece of furniture you add to your child’s room is completely safe and easy to use so your little one can join in with the tidying too! Strong wooden furniture provides a robust place to store belongings while ensuring items are still easily accessible. Both wood and MDF materials offer a flexible solution which can be used for curved walls or surfaces so your piece of fitted furniture can complement the shape of the room seamlessly.

To ensure the fitted furniture you choose will fit perfectly in the room, here at Gliderobes we offer a complete measurement service in which we take the precise dimensions of your child’s room for a fully functional piece of furniture.

Fitted cabin beds are an excellent storage space solution as they combine space-saving compact storage with comfort to provide a multi-functional product. With overhead cupboards and drawers located under the bed, there is often a generous amount of storage space available for ultimate convenience. Fitted shelves and chest of drawer units are also effective storage solutions as they can instantly declutter a room while not taking up much space themselves.

Through the immense storage space created, fitted furniture provides plenty of extra room to store clothes and belongings, so there is no excuse for a messy, unorganised room!
