How to choose

We place increased demands on the choice of cots, since children behave actively, jump, play, thus testing them for strength. Because of this, it is better to choose high-quality materials and reliable fasteners. The absence of toxic substances in the purchased product is important. Structurally, beds should be regulated, modified and combined with other proposed elements.

For babies, the crib is better to choose low and always with bumpers that protect against falling. From the color palette for boys and girls fit white furniture: it will refresh and visually increase the space. A model with a berth at the top will allow you to win space for the playing area. It is important to approach the choice of the mattress correctly and thus ensure complete relaxation and rest for the child.

Assembly Instructions

The principle of operation of the Swedish company IKEA is the assembly of purchased goods and furniture independently. This allows you to reduce prices and simplify transportation to different countries. Each product is accompanied by a step-by-step description of the assembly process itself, with black and white illustrations and a minimum of explanations.

IKEA delivers goods in cardboard boxes sealed with tape. After opening, it is better to decompose and mark everything, in accordance with the recommendations. When you make sure that nothing is left in the box, you can proceed to assembly in a well-lit room. The set offers tools, but their screwdrivers do not interfere at all. If you follow the instructions, carefully carry out all operations, then there will be no obstacles in the assembly.

How much are

The concept and business idea of ​​the company is to create comfortable and beautiful home goods with low prices, accessible to everyone, to change everyday life for the better. Children's beds can be purchased in various price categories. Minimum costs are waiting for parents in infancy, and with increasing age, they can grow, as requests will be provided by new features of furniture.

The cost of wooden models depends on the material used. The bed can be made of solid or exotic wood, or it can be made of veneer or hardboard. Solid wood backrests are durable and more practical than glued, film-coated, which can damage over time. In universal models of beds the cost is increased by separate drawers for linen, sometimes representing an extra bed. Our various desires, in the form of a headboard, stoppers, shelves, or original design solutions, carry with them a rise in price.

Interesting solutions in interior design

When choosing an interior for a child, you must take into account the peculiarities of his psyche. She is different from the adult.Children feel better in the environment of bright colors, they focus on bright shades and various tactile sensations. Kids quickly mastered in a bright interior, as it is of interest.

The company IKEA uses scientific developments and embodies them in the interior design of children's rooms. Colored furniture, curtains, in the form of green and white sails, tables of green color, pillows of various forms, colorful doors of cabinets direct children to fantasy, desire to play, explore. Such elements of the interior contribute to children's perception.

Reliable furniture, storage systems, wall shelves and modules enable the child to enjoy time in the room. A series of white cabinets with bright facades of blue, pink, green colors will make the space cozy and harmonious. The natural colors of furniture and saturated colors accessories will create children's comfort.
