Nurseries must be planned with the child's future years in mind. But from the beginning, make room for a changing table near the crib. As always, keep safety in mind. The following tips will help you do all of these things: Keep cribs away from windows and window blind cords. Make sure cribs and bunk beds meet federal safety standards. Check to see that mattresses fit snugly against the crib's sides. Slats, spindles, rods, and corner posts should be no more than 2-3/8 inches apart from each other. Make sure a child can't release the drop side of a crib. Choose chests and cabinets that can't be tipped over (even when drawers are opened and a child crawls up and into them). This may call for fastening them to the wall for security. Find hardware that's rounded, sanded, and has no sharp edges. Equip all electrical outlets with plastic safeguard plugs. Eliminate any small throw rugs on slippery floors. Make sure all flooring is skidproof. Eliminate dangling cords on window blinds. Choose bunk beds with sturdy ladders, handrails, and safety rails.
Design a spot where you can sink down and relax in a comfortable armchair. In a small bedroom where space is tight, situate a chair with a small footprint into an empty corner to carve out a spot for reading and lounging. Slide a small storage ottoman against the chair so you can stretch out your legs and relax. Stash reading and work-related materials inside the ottoman to keep them readily available when you need them. Drape a cozy furniture throw over the back of your armchair for chilly days. With space at a minimum, corners have to be cut — four of them to be exact. Instead of trying to fit a nightstand and desk together in one room, take one table completely out of the equation and set up a small sized desk bedside instead.
Focus on funcion, when choosing a bedside table, ensure there is enough surface area to store or display the things you use regularly. This might include your bedside lamp, a glass of water, a book, candle or a vase of flowers, and a place to rest your reading glasses. If you want a more minimal look, choose a bedside with drawers, then you can store it all out of sight. Most other things that we commonly store on our bedside table – such as medication, spare change and electronic devices – could be easily moved to other places around your house, clearing the clutter and enabling to you sleep better. Try to avoid purchasing the matching bedroom suite if you want to inject personality into your bedroom. When everything looks the same, it can look a bit like a catalogue and it becomes harder to stamp your own style. Think beyond standard bedside table. A chair, ladder shelf, or a stack of vintage suitcases or milk crates can create an interesting look while still providing function. Just pay attention the tips above and experiment with different options.
