Everybody needs a space of their own, but right now I would like to talk about a space for small children who are able to call a space entirely their own. A space where they can live in their own little world in which they may do whatever their desire compels them to do at any given moment.
What do they do in this space? Small children love to paint or draw; there is a picture of mom, another one of dad or of brothers and sisters or even of their favorite Kindergarten teacher. How proud they are of their creation when they are all displayed on the fridge door. This space of their own is a very important component in a child's life. It is a space where they can play, read, imagine and where they can escape into their own world. Most of all they can be creative!
So, let's call this space a creative station. It is important to have a kids table and chair set as these are very important furniture pieces in a child's life. A kids taable and chair set means a friend can be invited to engage with some specially designed arts and crafts for kids and where the imagination takes the upper hand. Don't forget that there could be some intriguing kids jigsaw puzzles, which could capture their minds.
Small children love to do creative things and with it discover the surroundings of their world. Design your child's room accordingly, by having them in mind. Most of all consider that your child is much smaller in size than you are, therefore create spaces within the room that the child is able to relate too. Build a child house more like a tree house in the room where the child can play inside the structure and let their imagination fly. Hang pictures much lower for the child to be able to see them at their eye-level. Try to bring the room to their level, to their size.
Commonly, today small children already have a computer it is therefore imperative that the computer station is set up ergonomically for your child. Ergonomic set ups are critical to prevent carpal tunnel disorders. Parents should be aware of these possible incurred injuries to their child's hands.
Another important space in a child's life is the floor. As small kids spend a lot of time on it, make sure you have an easy-to-clean floor installed, hardwood is ideal. Hardwood is a natural product and if treated with non-toxic materials the child has a wonderful environment. Laminated hardwood is the next best thing to solid hardwood. As there are so many varieties of laminated flooring, research how the floorboards are treated to avoid toxic applications. If possible an air purifier is always an advisable room addition.
A child's room is an extension of who they are and it is imperative to provide the amenities for the child to grow in mind and spirit in order to develop the senses to lead a happy life.
