A low chest of drawers can be an attractive option for older children and adults too. They don't take up much wall space so you can place shelves and shelving units above them. They will usually also be much wider than a regular chest, making them perfect for blankets and other larger or bulkier items. Some sit flat on the floor which maximises space and avoids a build-up of dust underneath.Before you buy your drawers, do measure the floor space available to you and make sure there's plenty of room to walk past them without bumping into the corners. Remember that you'll sometimes be walking around your room in the dark, so leave plenty of space. Some chests have extra features that can be really useful in a busy house. For example, rather than legs, they may feature castors which make it easier to move them around when cleaning or rearranging the room. Other chests have a glass top which is an excellent idea to keep them from getting scratched or stained. However, the glass top is rarely fixed so avoid these in a child's room as they could come loose. The glass is also sometimes placed on tiny pads to help keep it in position and these can present a choking hazard for a young child.
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.
Arrange your bedroom to provide organized storage space for bed linens, clothing articles and desk-related items. Make optimal use of the vertical space in a small bedroom by furnishing it with a floor-to-ceiling open shelving unit to store electronic items and books. Slide decorative boxes onto the shelves filled with photographs, small desk-related items, CDs and DVDs. Store seasonal clothing and bed linens in large plastic bins, and tuck them underneath your bed. Attach a small rack with hooks onto the back of your bedroom door to hang jackets, sweaters or coats. Slide a locking file cabinet underneath your desktop to keep important documents safely organized. Shove a chest of drawers into a recessed wall area to make good use of an awkward area.
