Good storage is a key to making space saving work in kids' rooms. Choose a tall dresser with lots of deep drawers, suitable to store all your children's clothes and other items - perhaps with shelves above for books to be stacked on. Shelving doesn't have to be expensive, solid wood: wire shelving works just as well, as does melamine. Melamine furniture may often get a bad press, but when it comes to kid-proof furniture, melamine does take quite a few kicks and knocks, is cheap to purchase and cheap to replace. For other storage options, try hanging baskets from the ceiling and make use of under-bed storage for out-of-season clothes or bedding.
Using classic furniture and coordinating wool rugs can help provide a basis for your decorating. If you have an unchanging wool rug, it is easy to add comforters, pillows, artwork and accessories to pull off any theme. Using an appropriately sized rug can define a play area that is separate from the sleeping are. Having furniture and rugs that do not need to be changed when your child grows out of a decoration will allow the child to feel constancy and comfort in their room. A good rug will also pull together and polish off a room's decorating.
