Children's bedroom furniture buying guide

Find fun, practical, safety tested children’s bedroom furniture with the Furniture Village buying guide.

Choosing kid’s bedroom furniture

Matching children’s bedroom furniture actually makes a space look larger than a ‘mish-mash’ of styles. We suggest pale and neutral coloured bedroom furniture as it suits both younger children and teenagers. You can always change soft furnishings and paint over that mural, but you want bedroom furniture to stand the test of time.

TOP TIP: Look out for children’s bedroom furniture with sturdy frames and durable, tough, non-toxic finishes.

Children’s storage

Children and teenagers are more likely to tidy up (well, we can dream!) if there’s a place for everything and they are proud of their bedroom. From storage cubes on wheels to compact bookcases, there’s plenty of nifty storage to choose from to make sure tidying is easy.

Children’s chests of drawers

Chests of drawers are the most efficient way of storing away your child’s clothes, as folded clothes take up less space. Perfect for those sports kits, school uniform and collections of t-shirts.

Children’s wardrobes

If you have room, a children’s wardrobe is a great way to store kid’s clothes. A far cry from heavy wooden traditional wardrobes these are cool, contemporary and built to last, with safety in mind.

Children’s desks

Children with dedicated spaces for doing homework perform better in exams. Children's desks can be built in under high sleepers or, if there's room, stand alone. Many kid's desks have integrated shelves and bookcases, ideal for storing school textbooks, dictionaries, exercise books and of course that enormous collection of pens, pencils and felt tips.

TOP TIP: Make sure your child’s bedroom has good quality and safety checked ceiling lights, so they can see to play… and to do their homework!
