Decorating your house is fun, but it can be a little expensive. You can use children's furniture sets to decorate with, and make their room's fantasy wonderlands. You can also buy quality children's bedroom furniture that will grow with them as they age.
Movie characters and cartoons make excellent themes for children's bedroom furniture. Children get really invested in the characters of their favorite movies, and cartoons, and they love to have their rooms decorated to reflect the way they feel about these characters.
A little boy might want a race car bed that looked like Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars, or they might like to have a spaceship bed if the love Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. Little girls love all of the Disney princesses, and anything that is pink, or purple. The possibilities for decorating using children's furniture sets is endless.
You might want to buy more traditional beds, and use the blankets, pillows, and comforters to set the theme. When you buy more traditional pieces then as the child ages and wants to redecorate their room you will not have to purchase new furniture, but simply purchase new coverings, throw rugs and accessories.
It is always nice if the child has a room large enough for you to put two twin beds in. Little girls and little boys like to have their friends sleep over. Having the extra bed means there will be a place for the additional child to sleep. If the room is not large enough you can place a trundle bed in the room. The trundle bed has a second bedframe that is connected to the upper frame. When the second bed is not in use it slides beneath the frame of the first bed and is out of the way. When company comes over you simply pull the bed out and have an instant place for them to sleep.
A daybed, or futon sofa, are very popular in the rooms of teenagers. You can also add extra-large bean bag chairs to the room to give the kids a place to sit, and if you get one of the giant bean bag chairs you can even let it double as a place for sleep over guests to sleep.
When you are buying furniture for a child's room try to buy items made of real wood. Real wood lasts longer, and can withstand the punishment that children dish out to their belovedings.
