Features and Benefits
It is not easy to design a children's room. Here, not only a harmonious appearance, functionality is important, but also safety. From a functional point of view, a wardrobe will perfectly fit into the nursery. Such a wardrobe allows you to store a wide variety of things: clothes, toys, bedding, books, stationery. It will be easy for a child to cope with the construction of compartment doors.
Safety is a special criterion when choosing children's furniture. The design of the wardrobe is the safest, since it does not have open shelves and corners, opening doors that a child can hit.
The sliding front of the cabinet can become an interior decoration, it is enough to choose the appropriate design. Structures made of wood and plastic with a printed pattern look great. A large image of your favorite cartoon characters or a colorful fantastic landscape will delight any kid. Installation of doors with glass or mirror inserts would not be the best solution, especially in a room where a preschool child is growing up.
There are many variations of wardrobes on the market and it is not so easy to choose the right one for a child.
With two, three or four sliding doors. When choosing the number of sliding doors, you should rely on the size of the room and the number of things that you plan to store in the closet. When choosing a facade with three or more panels, you can apply a combined design: a combination of wood panels with photo printing or mirror. A cabinet that is too large can greatly reduce the area of the room, and too small will not be functional
Full mirrored facade or with inserts… For a teenage child, the mirror facade of the cabinet no longer poses a great danger and can easily be used in the design of a room. This design will suit any interior and visually expand the space of the room. Combining mirror inserts and inserts from other materials will create a more interesting design. Additional inserts can be made in wood or plastic using photo printing
Corner configuration. A corner wardrobe will be an interesting solution in small rooms, it will save useful space
Beveled or radial. Such models, with a semicircular facade, will be an interesting and unusual solution and are chosen for both spacious and small rooms.

In large structures, it is worth taking care of interior lighting; several built-in lamps are well suited. More functionality can be achieved by placing a radius cabinet in the corner of the room. This design is ideal for a child's room, since there are no sharp corners at all
Sliding wardrobe with a sloped facade will perfectly fit into a small room. Thanks to this trick, the cabinet can be installed next to the door frame and save the necessary space.
With open side module. For the side module, it is better to choose rounded shelves, so the child will have less chance of injury or injury. On such shelves, various figurines, certificates, framed photographs will look good
Built-in wardrobe. The built-in design will allow you to get rid of the side walls of the cabinet and make it possible to make the most of the rest of the room.It is worth considering that such a structure can only be installed in a solid wall, a plasterboard partition will not work in any way
Of course, the color and stylistic solution of the facade must match the overall design of the interior. They don't have to be bright and flashy colors.
For a nursery decorated in pastel colors, facades of muted shades of pink, brown, beige are well suited. A single-color panel can be complemented with elegant ornaments or mirror inserts.
Colors are considered ideal for an early age: green, pale blue, yellow, pink. You can choose a pattern of the corresponding colors or solid color panels.
When decorating a bright room, you can use a facade with a drawing or photo printing. The child himself can choose the drawing he likes, here the imagination is endless: sea and air ships, cartoon characters, colorful butterflies, flower arrangements, etc. A design of mirrors or frosted glass can be combined with printing if the cabinet is wide enough.
With a minimalistic design, you can use the main colors of the interior and paint the laminated chipboard panels in them, use colored glass or plastic. A sliding wardrobe can also become an accent of the interior, in this case you need to apply colors that contrast with the design of the room. For example, for a room in blue colors, a wardrobe with an orange or yellow door is suitable.
When choosing facades of light shades: white, light yellow, pink, etc., you should take care of the quality of the material, it should be moisture resistant and easy to clean.
It is very important to choose furniture according to the age of the child, but it should be remembered that the child develops rapidly, and the available space grows with it. For very young children, it is worth specially equipping the lower shelves, you can replace them with large boxes, it is convenient to put toys in them.
The safety of the internal structure will be provided by a special lock for sliding doors, it will prevent the door from hitting the walls of the cabinet and will protect the baby's hands from damage. It is worth taking care of the safety of the shelves, let them be without protruding corners.
When choosing an internal design, it is important to take into account the interests of the child: provide shelves for storing hockey equipment, ballet tutus, books and encyclopedias. Over the years, the number of necessary and important things will only grow, and a large number of departments will come in handy here. The compartments for clothes should not be limited to shelves, only a wardrobe is suitable for an evening dress or suit. The top shelves can be used to store seasonal clothing.
If children of different ages live in the room, locks can be installed on some drawers, so everything of value will remain unharmed.
It is better to attach the shelves to the back wall of the cabinet and the side walls, so the structure will be more reliable. For internal racks and shelves, a durable material is chosen: wood, high-quality chipboard. Such a shelf will hold both victory cups and volumes of books.
How to choose for a boy

Often the option of photo printing is chosen in the children's room; images of your favorite comic or cartoon characters can be placed on the door. Panoramas of the city and fantastic landscapes look good. Do not forget that the child's gaze should not be overstrained and tired.
Various stickers can decorate a monochromatic surface, but you should only choose options that do not leave marks on the panel.This option is more mobile, if the child does not like the image, he can peel it off and place a new one.
If the boy is actively involved in sports, it is worth making more compartments with barbells, equipping them with mesh baskets. For a lover of a variety of toy cars and Lego, roomy baskets or boxes are suitable, but they should not be heavy so that the child can get them out on his own. If the boy collects collections of toy cars or other toys, long shelves are perfect. The child himself can tell about his preferences and bring a new idea.
It is very important to place a wardrobe, a storage area. If possible, you should not install it too close to the sleeping, play or work areas. The main task of the wardrobe is to clean the rest of the useful space of the room, to make it more convenient.

For teenagers, a mirror design is suitable; at this age, children are very attentive to their person. The mirror can be supplemented with floral ornaments or colored stickers.
In the inner structure of the closet, special attention should be paid to the compartment with bars, you can make it more spacious for various dresses and skirts. You can choose a model with the ability to change the filling elements, this option will last longer and will be convenient at any age. If there are empty spaces at the bottom of the cabinet, they can be made with rectangular or square wicker baskets. It is worth taking care of the arrangement of the shoes. At the bottom you can fit special hooks or grids for shoes, sandals or boots. The wide drawers can accommodate fabric modules for various jewelry, elastic bands and hairpins. Such a move will allow not to keep all the decorations in one pile.
On the open side module, you can place photos, souvenirs or vases with shells and flowers.
