Choosing the right furniture for your little girl’s bedroom can be difficult at times. There is no one-size-fits-all formula, and it can be daunting trying to make your way through all the decisions you will need to make. This guide to choosing the perfect little girls’ bedroom furniture will make the task a little bit easier.
The Bed Frame
Starting with the most essential and non-negotiable piece of furniture, there is a wide variety of choice when it comes to the bed frame. There are simple headboard designs (including panels, posters, low profile head boards, and sleigh beds), intricate iron frame designs, as well as more extravagant character theme types (like a carriage). The bed frame will be the centre-piece and will set the tone for the rest of your little girl’s bedroom furniture.
Little girls are known to need a lot more storage space than boys, so this makes a storage chest and a dresser even more important. The chest and dresser should be able to store all of her clothes and toys. Adding a mirror to the dresser will be that extra touch which she will definitely appreciate that much more. A character-themed storage chest can add that extra bit of personality and character that makes it look like a little girl’s personal space.
The nightstand is fast becoming a mainstay in little girls’ bedroom furniture because it allows easy access to a night light, as well as a place to out her favourite toys and bedtime storybooks. Ideally the nightstand should complement the bed frame because it is going to be placed right next to it, and fortunately nightstands also come in a variety of designs.
A bookcase is an ideal addition to your little girl’s bedroom furniture. If she has a collection of story books, she can put them on display, making it easier to pick one out when it is story time (plus it encourages her to read, which is always a bonus). If she is not a fan of reading and does not have that many books, the bookcase can be very useful for displaying toy play sets that may get damaged in a storage chest.
Whether she is your little princess, butterfly, fairy, mermaid, or whatever she is into, using the above guide will help you turn your little girl’s bedroom into her own personal space.
