The arrangement of the children's room should be given special attention, because the child spends a lot of time in this room. The free space of the room must be carefully divided into an area for games, placing toys there, a place for sleeping - put a bed there, and for studies, equipping it with a desk or desk.
Once your child starts first grade, the work area will become the most important part in the nursery. There your kid will spend a lot of time doing homework, reading books or studying at a computer or laptop.
It is good when the children's room is a spacious room, where a large amount of furniture needed for classes can easily be placed, and there will be enough free space for rest or play.
Often there is no such luxury, and the child's room is very modest in size. In this case, a transformer table or desk will be an excellent option for equipping a work area for a student. You can buy such furniture much earlier, when the child is still in kindergarten. For a preschooler, such a table or desk will be an excellent place where he can draw with paints, sculpt various figures from plasticine, collect puzzles or play board games
- Space saving - can only be used when the child is doing homework. If the transformer desk is no longer needed, it can be folded very simply.
- Increases in height as the child grows.
- Saves the family budget - it is enough to purchase one model, which the child can use until the end of school.
- It is developed taking into account the requirements of pediatricians, so you can not worry about the health of children and their posture.
Basic requirements for children's furniture
When choosing a table or a transformer desk, as well as a chair for a preschooler or schoolchild, be sure to pay attention to some points. Since these two objects mainly shape the child's posture. A quality chair will support the natural curve of your back.
Basic requirements for a table or a desk transformer:
When choosing a table or desk, pay attention to the child's height. Children's furniture should not be too high or too low. It is very simple to determine this parameter - put the child at the table:
- the baby's legs should reach either the floor or a special bench-stand, and not dangle in the air;
- knees should not rest on the tabletop;
- Your toddler's shoulders should be straight and not drooping low or unnaturally raised.
If you choose the height of the table or desks incorrectly, then over time, the child may develop health problems: curvature of the spine or blurred vision.
The width and length of the table top should be sufficient so that the child can easily accommodate all the supplies necessary for the study. The longer and wider the table, the more comfortable it will be for your child. Suitable widths are from 60 cm and lengths from 1.2 meters
Stop your choice on transformer tables and desks, in which the lid rises slightly, forming an angle of 15 degrees. Your baby's eyes and spine will not get tired too quickly during exercise
It is better if the surface of the table is matte, so that glare from sunlight or artificial lighting will not appear on it, which also affect the speed of eye fatigue
The color of the furniture also plays an important role. The best option for children's tables and desks is light shades: cream, sand colors. The eyes will be more stressed from dark surfaces
Basic requirements for a chair for a student:
- The chair should be quite rigid, equipped with an anatomical backrest.
- The chair should be high enough to rest your legs freely on the floor or footrest, forming a right angle (90 degrees).
- You should not buy a chair with armrests, as it unevenly distributes the load on the child's back.
- The chair must be stable and secure.
Furniture manufacturers offer various models of transformer furniture, which will best equip a place for schoolchildren to study, and also save space, leaving it for games and entertainment.
The main models of furniture transformers for a children's room:
- The table or desk is a transformer.
- Loft bed.
- Pull-out or folding table.
The transformer table or desk also has a second name - growing furniture. It is named so because it allows you to adjust your height depending on the height and build of the student. This is a versatile model as it can be used for preschoolers and schoolchildren, growing up with your child.
There are two types of transformer tables:
single - used for one child;
double - the best option for two or more children. This model will be an excellent solution for a small room, since you will not need to purchase two separate desks.
Transformers desks are also equipped with additional furniture: shelves, superstructures, drawers. They allow the student to keep all the necessary things and school supplies within reach. And the child will not have to be distracted from classes in search of a book or notebook in another closet.
Such a transformer bed will be an excellent option for a very small children's room. On the first tier there is a desk, shelves and drawers for school supplies, and on the second, there is a place for sleeping and resting.
Pull-out or folding table
This table model is also a kind of transformer. It discreetly hides in a wall or closet, creating quite a lot of free space for games.
The main disadvantage of such furniture is the inability to leave textbooks or notebooks when the child has finished studying. You won't be able to place a computer on it, but there will be plenty of space on the tabletop for a laptop or tablet.
Despite this drawback, a retractable or folding table will teach your baby to order: after the end of the class, you need to clean the workplace.
When choosing a transformer desk for the home, pay special attention to the quality of the material, it must be environmentally friendly, not cause allergies, and not have harmful or hazardous compounds. The material must be durable and provide a long service life.
Optimal material for a children's transformer table:
- natural wood;
- tempered glass;
- MDF - resembles wood in appearance, but is much cheaper than natural wood.
If the school desk is made of pine, then it will be sold at a reasonable price. Please note that pine wood is very soft, and if your child is too active, then such furniture will quickly lose its original appearance.
Children's transformer desks made of birch, beech or ash are more resistant to damage.
The most durable are transformer tables with a metal frame. They are distinguished by their ergonomics and stylish design.
