Our design tips for a small children’s room

Furniture to optimize space

The choice of all-in-one or combined furniture makes it easy to optimize space in a small child’s room. Mezzanine bed or bed combined with a child’s desk, cleverly free up floor space for play or storage.

A room in the attic? Optimize the attic space by integrating storage furniture.

Walls also offer many design possibilities: boxes, pockets and wall shelves help de-clutter floor space and children’s furniture.

Functional storage and practical arrangements

Today’s children’s furniture can cleverly hide lots of storage space while providing a soft atmosphere for learning and playing.

  • Optimize the night space with integrated and adapted storage; trundle bed, with drawers or dedicated compartment under the bed;
  • Integrate a desk in an optimal way, between two cupboards or in the extension of a bookcase;
  • Create a modular work space, with the drawer units serving as a support, table or folding tray;
  • Occupy all the available walls of the room with wall shelves or coat hooks (bed head, door lintel, corners…);
  • Favour the height by choosing cupboards rather than chests of drawers.
