Having a room dedicated to toys, books and creativity is a fantastic way to keep the kids’ bedrooms a little cleaner. Create interest within the space by incorporating fun bright colors and fresh kid-friendly designs. It’s also a great idea to include a section of the room that will give your child a comfortable place to quietly read. Adding a few smart pieces to the play area – whether in the daycare, home, or home school – provides a unique space to let your child’s imagination and creativity run wild. Try decorating the space with an gallery wall filled with various sized polka-dots as “frames” for the pictures.

Style Guide: Baby Room for Small Spaces https://furnitureanddesignideas.com/baby-kids-room-furniture-design/style-guide-baby-room-for-small-spaces/ https://furnitureanddesignideas.com/baby-kids-room-furniture-design/style-guide-baby-room-for-small-spaces/#comments Mon, 06 Jan 2014 17:00:31 +0000 Cymax Stores https://furnitureanddesignideas.com/?p=4147 Style Guide: Small Baby Room

In today’s world of townhome and condo living, sometimes a full size crib just isn’t going to work in the limited space you have for the baby. There is a very simple solution: keep everything small, simple and minimal.

Babyletto Mercer 3 in 1 Convertible Wood Crib in Two-tone Espresso and White

This convertible crib is a great addition. It changes into both a toddler bed and a youth day bed (guide rails may not be included—be sure to check manufacturer’s specifications). The underbed storage is perfect for extra diapers, blankets and onesies while your little one is still little. In the toddler years, switch it up for books, toys and swimming gear. During your child’s youth years, the underbed storage can be used for art supplies, sweater storage and more.

This chair is very modern, comfortable, and classy. The soft gliding motion will ease your littlest addition back into dreamland. Also part of a good baby room is a soft light for those late-night changes. This can be in the form of a small lamp, a wall light, a simple plug-in night light, or even a soft star light. Play mobiles can also be a viable option that provides music and motion. Some also have a soft light. Keep the volume at it’s lowest setting where it is easiest on a baby’s ears. Soft music is also a great addition—classical and jazz are the most relaxing and least stimulating, offering a nice, soothing transition from feeding to sleeping.

This gorgeous white room designed by Victoria Hagan has a wonderful contrast in the dark accents. So take this design and make it your own similar to what we have done below.

Adding hints of texture with wicker makes a nice surprising casual addition to the room. Today’s small family rooms may not allow for every piece of living room furniture, so pick and choose what is most important to you. Build on a small sample with varying colored accent pieces such as framed art, gallery-wrapped art, framed photos and softly scented candles. Earthy tones blend well with the cream and dark blend of this particular room. You can also brighten it up with deep red, royal purple, and even a muted lime green.

It’s never too early to think about spring renovations. The future designer sunroom may seem cold now, but once you close it in you can quickly warm it up with a few simple additions.


Holly & Martin Walton Portable Indoor/Outdoor Gel Fireplace in Black w/ Cooper Accent
Holly & Martin Walton Portable Indoor/Outdoor Gel Fireplace in Black w/ Cooper Accent

This is the perfect place to start. You want something that is going to keep the room warm on cool spring nights, but you are in the city so a wood fireplace is out of the question. This indoor/outdoor gel fireplace is going to be a great way to keep the warmth inside the room, without breaking your bank account with the electric bill. Holly & Martin has designed a beautifully portable fireplace that can sit on your back patio, in the sunroom on the floor, or even on a table top. Even better, when you don’t need the heat of the fireplace, you can use the gel burner covers and light the room with candles instead. It creates a nice warm ambiance on a warm summer night.


Home Styles Cabana Banana Cocoa Love Seat and Two Chairs

Comfort is paramount when you create a four-season getaway within your home. This set by Home Styles is casual, yet provides a very warm summer-beachfront-cottage kind of comfort. This is a very contemporary look, but also adds a hint of island paradise to your new space. Place the fireplace in the center for a true outdoors feel.


Tommy Bahama Home Ocean Club Fiji Drum Table

When you use the fireplace as the center piece of the sunroom, all you need is a couple of smaller side tables to rest the evening’s drink of choice upon. Tommy Bahama has the perfect solution with the Ocean Club Fiji drum table. It brings some island sophistication to the room, without taking away from the casual, contemporary look. Keep your favorite book and reading glasses on the shelf inside the table for those quieter evenings. A floor in bamboo or cork adds that finishing touch to the room. If you prefer something softer on your feet, go for a durable low-pile carpet that while adds some earth-tone color to the room.

We don’t want you to feel cheap, but there are some great gifts you can buy for your in-laws, all under $100. They make you look good and feel great that you didn’t spend as much as they think you did. Sometimes that can be a good thing.

This pastel yellow will look fabulous with rustic grey weathered wood, or in a nice crisp white room. Accentuate the yellows with a few little pillows or trinkets, but don’t over-do it. You want the table to be the center of attention in this room.


IMAX Corporation  Galvanized 4-Bottle Wine Caddy

Coaster Dice Ottoman Faux Leather in Brown

You can even make this ottoman work in a room that has more of a modern/urban feel to it.

This KidKraft boat bed can easily hold a mast—a great small project for the handyman in the house—complete with a simple tailored sail. Keep the mast in proportion to the size of the bed.

KidKraft Boat Toddler Bed Cot

Go with the wainscotting-style wall paint where the bottom third is dark blue while the top is white or even pale gray. If you have an artist in the family, add some cabin windows to the walls or a few ocean waves. You can even add a few seagulls or the spout of a whale breaking surface. Really have fun with it! Along the ceiling you can find some great rope netting and drape it above the bed along the ceiling, or even along a wall opposite the bed.
