Interesting species

Making the tabletop by the nursery window is possible in a variety of ways. It all depends on personal preferences and the overall interior of the room.

From the window itself

The classic room has a window in the middle. Here you can safely install a wide countertop, starting from the window itself.

If the window is located not in the center, but is shifted slightly to the side, it is good to make the built-in corner table-sill. It will be extended to the very corner and it is logical to move to the next wall, thus forming a cozy working corner for the student. In addition, it is an excellent unloading room, because on such a spacious surface, you can lay out textbooks, put a laptop, and do homework in notebooks.

In some older apartments, the window sill was originally designed lower than the standard table level. In this case, the window sill will have to build up and only after that install the countertop.

With cabinets

Very convenient table-sill with cabinets. They can be on the sides of the window opening and under the table. For example, at the bottom let them be cabinets with doors, and at the top - open shelving. Now toys and books, albums and paints, souvenirs and other trifles will migrate here. The room will be free from the mass of children's supplies. This will please both the baby and the teenager.

With pull-out table top

Even more free up space in the room retractable table-sill. This is a table of two countertops. In this case, one of them can be hidden under the second - to push if necessary and push as unnecessary. This choice is especially indispensable for rooms with small children. Because the table they need only from time to time, but expanse for active games - all the time.

With folding table

In everyday life, the role of the table is played by a spacious windowsill. But when you need such a table increases in size, it is enough just to raise the tabletop. The height of the folding table can be leveled or made just below the window sill. For example, friends came to the child, and together they want to play or work out lessons. This option is suitable, and if the room is inhabited by two or even three children.

Table for two

When the nursery is designed for two, or even for three, the interior is chosen somewhat different. The table is no exception. In Soviet times, in such cases, children have a common single table. Or parents bought two tables at once, which was a great cluttering up of the room. Times have changed, and now you can create comfort for each child and at the same time get extra square meters.And it looks like this: the tabletop stretches along the entire window from wall to wall. Under the window sill on both sides there is a cabinet and drawers and racks. And in the middle of the table shares a common dresser. It turns out one desktop for two or three places. Guys can safely learn each at his desk. You’ll get an educational zone with consideration for everyone’s interests.


Table-sill in the nursery should be environmentally friendly. The best choice as a material for the countertop - natural wood. It is better if it is an oak. Beautiful, elegant and durable. But the oak surface of the desk will be expensive. Therefore, you can choose maple, cherry or chestnut.

An excellent economy option is to use pressed chipboard (HDF or MDF). In this case, the countertop can even be done independently. Armed with an electric jigsaw, create the edges of the table according to your own design. Such a table will certainly give the room individuality.

The question can be approached more simply - buy a chipboard panel, putty it and paint it in any color suitable for the interior. Or pasted PVC film.

But perhaps the most common option is plastic. Convenient and easy to care for such a table.
