Designing a room for children is an opportunity to design a fun space. An ambience that encourages children to play, draw, create and let their imagination run free is ideal for them. The room should serve many functions and should be a secure environment.

It is not just a place to sleep. While comfort and safety are the most important things to consider, a children’s room is a place to play, sprawl on the floor, do art work, and relax. Children’s interests often change and so, it is important to use accessories and furniture that can be changed according to one’s age and can be replaced when one’s interest changes. Planning a child’s room with plenty of ventilation and free space is important.
