Stylish Kids Furniture for the Modern Home

The right kids furniture for your modern home should feature three key characteristics. First, it must be durable enough to fit the lifestyle of busy kids who are always on the move. Second, it should be aesthetically pleasing so kids will enjoy spending time in their rooms. Finally, the furniture must be functional. There are four key furniture pieces that belong in every child's room:

1. Beds for Kids

A child's bed is the most important furniture piece in their bedroom. It is the space where they can rest, relax and grow.

  • Kids bed frames come in stylish metal or classic engineered wood.
  • Choose twin or full mattresses so the bed can be used from youth through to the teenage years.
  • Add a matching nightstand from the modern kids furniture collection for extra storage space.

2. Dressers for Kids

Since adequate storage space is incredibly important in a child's bedroom, dressers are a kids furniture must-have.

  • Dressers with opaque drawers can not only be used to store clothing but also toys and other miscellaneous clutter.
  • Chose a dresser which coordinates in color and style with the bed frame for a cohesive look.

3. Desks for Kids

Having a space to quietly work on craft projects or school assignments is very important for a child's development.

  • Look for desks with shelving or drawers for storing art supplies and school supplies.
  • Add a matching desk chair with wheels to complete the workspace.

4. Bookshelves for Kids

Bookshelves are one of the most popular and useful items in the modern kids furniture collection.

  • Choose from natural wood finishes or stylish painted wood.
  • Use bookshelves to organize and store books, toys and collectibles.
  • These sleek shelves are also nice enough to use in the living room to display decorative items.

Kids have an active lifestyle, so the furniture in their bedrooms must be able to hold up to a lot of use. But just because kids furniture has to be functional and durable, that doesn't mean it can't also be aesthetically pleasing.
