In modern stores there is a huge range of sofas and beds in the nursery, and parents who come to the mall behind the couch, it is better to forget about the savings. If you want your child to have a correct posture, and the body does not hurt in the morning, be prepared to buy an expensive children's sofa from quality materials with an orthopedic mattress.
What you need to pay attention in the first place?
In the choice of children's sofa can not be small things. Sofa for teenagers and babies should be:
No matter how old a child is, you need to worry about his safety. A sofa for a small child should have high sides that will not let him fall on the floor during sleep. For older teens, the sofa may not have such sides, but it must not have any sharp corners. It is especially important to find a sofa with corners closed with a thick cloth, without any iron elements in the children's room for boys, because the boys are constantly in motion, and you do not want them to be injured when they accidentally collide with the sofa.
In the room for a teenager, you need to pick up a sofa made from quality materials. If you want to save money and buy a cheap piece of furniture, then be prepared for the fact that very soon it will begin to deform and lose its presentation. Choosing a sofa in a room for a teenager, you need to pay attention to:
It is best to buy sofas for teens with a wooden frame. The main advantage of wood is environmental friendliness. The tree does not have an unpleasant odor, does not emit any harmful fumes, but the frame must be well-sanded and treated with varnish or other composition. If the sofa for a teenage boy has a raw frame, splits and scratches can not be avoided. Wooden frame is expensive. You can find sofas with a combined frame, some of the parts in which is replaced by a chipboard.
Also, the frame can be made of metal. This is a very reliable, but heavy construction. This sofa weighs too much and moving it from place to place will be problematic. Modern sofas can be with a plastic frame - the design is light, but very unreliable. If the child starts to jump on it, the piece of furniture may simply not withstand the load.
Choosing a filler for the sofa
Inside the sofa for a teenager should only be high-quality, hypo-allergenic and non-toxic material. A sofa full of foam will cost cheap, but it will quickly lose its appearance. For sleeping and sitting such a sofa will be suitable only for the first couple of months. Then the foam, especially lumpy, will crush and deform, and it will be very uncomfortable to sleep on such a sofa.
The best option for upholstered furniture - sofas with polyurethane filler. A sofa is suitable for the bedroom, whose bottom layer is hard and the upper one is softer. On such a teenager it will be comfortable to sleep: he will not fall down and roll down. When a person lies on such a construction, the back muscles relax, stretch out and come to a normal position. This is especially important for those who write a lot or sit at a computer.
Remember how much your child spends his homework, and be sure to buy him such a sofa. It is especially convenient if polyurethane is additionally covered with a layer of synthetic winterizer, but such a sofa will cost several times more.
Parents who are concerned about the health of their children, it is recommended to pay attention to the sofa for a teenager with an orthopedic mattress. Special springs are inserted into such a sofa, which create the necessary rigidity. These springs can withstand heavy loads and not be deformed. Sleeping on such a mattress is good for health - the body takes the correct position and relaxes as much as possible. Especially a sofa for a teenager with an orthopedic mattress is recommended to buy for children who have problems with the musculoskeletal system. An orthopedic mattress will help solve a problem that no generation of schoolchildren knows about - scoliosis.
Despite the fact that the design can withstand a lot of weight, it requires careful handling. If your children jump on it, then sooner or later the spring can break, crawl out and tear the filler and upholstery. Children's sofa with an orthopedic mattress must be bought for boys, but since this thing is not cheap, try to tell the tomboy that you need to handle it carefully and carefully.
Determined with upholstery
Today, sofas are covered with a variety of fabrics. As upholstery use:
These fabrics differ in price and have their own characteristics. For the nursery, you need to choose a sofa that is upholstered in natural, safe for the child's health with a cloth. It should be hypoallergenic and wash well. All children love to eat and drink, sitting on the sofa in front of the TV. If you do not want to spend many hours trying to remove the juice and fruit stains from the sofa, look for upholstery from which you can quickly reduce them. Also Arpatek is suitable for a sofa in a nursery - this material, similar to artificial leather, is easy to clean and does not require special care.
For ottomans in the nursery suit shenill. It does not stretch and you can easily remove any contamination from the vinegar solution. Also in the children's room the sofa upholstered with Jacquard will look good - this material does not lose color over time, does not fade and does not fade.
A couch upholstered in velor is not suitable for a nursery. This material is very soft to the touch, but quickly wears out, and since children spend a lot of time on the sofa, it will quickly become unpresentable. Just like velor, cotton wears fast. However, it is difficult to find a more natural and safe material than cotton for upholstering a sofa.
No need to buy in the room for a teenager sofa, upholstered in flock. On this material fine dust quickly accumulates, and yet it can not be cleaned by chemical means. Microfiber also requires special care.
What color to choose?
Parents it is important not to be mistaken with the color of the sofa for a teenager. The child spends a lot of time in his room, so it should be framed in those colors that favorably affect his psyche.
For a teenager boy you need to order a sofa in soothing colors:
- the black;
The sofa for boys should be dark, not because they are not always neat and can spill something on it. It was during adolescence that the boy began to develop a male character, his own life rules and habits. The formation of character is influenced by the interior of the guy. It is important to find a "middle ground". Teens are prone to mood swings and depressions. If there are too many dark colors in the room, the emotional state of the teenager may be aggravated, so if the room is made in neutral colors, there may be one dark spot in it - a sofa, and if dark wallpaper, floor and ceiling, the sofa should be light gray or beige. .
For a teenage girl, you can choose a sofa of pastel or bright, saturated colors:
The older the girl, the calmer the colors should be. For the baby, you can buy a bright pink sofa, and for the girl you will already need to choose upholstered furniture in powder shades. Also for the women's bedroom fit sofa, upholstered in fabric with a floral or geometric print. A sofa in a small rose, chamomile or lavender will become the center of any children's room.
The design and functionality of the sofa
The sofa can be put in the room in which one child lives. If you have a daughter and a son, and they share one room for two, it is better to opt for single beds. Two sofas in the room will not fit, and two beds - completely. A bed for a girl can be forged, and for a boy from unpainted wood, but if different beds do not fit into the interior, it is better to choose the same neutral color and simple design. The main thing is that the bed for a teenager was comfortable and made from quality materials.
If there is not enough space in the room, you can install a bunk bed. She is more suitable for two sons. Such a design not only allows economical use of space - it becomes a subject for games. Duplex beds are suitable for teenage boys. When they grow up, you have to think about buying more adult furniture.
In order to save space, you can also buy a "loft" for a teenager - a bed that is installed on high legs almost under the ceiling. You can climb it only with the help of a ladder, and under it is, for example, a table with a computer, a sports corner or a game zone. The loft bed is not suitable for small children, and it will be interesting for a teenager to sleep on it.
A loft bed with a sofa at the bottom will look original. If the room has one owner, he can spend time on the couch during the day and climb up in the evening. If the children's room is shared by two, then one sleeps in the attic bed, and the second on the sofa bed downstairs. To lay out such transformers every evening is inconvenient, but if the room is small and everyone needs to be accommodated in it, then there are no other options. It is reasonable to put a bed in the children's room with drawers downstairs. They can be folded toys, linens, clothing.
A sofa that can be easily folded is suitable for a child. The mechanism should be so soft that the teenager could collect it himself. Parents should pay attention to the eurobook - a sofa, which is disassembled into a double bed in one movement. The eurobook will fit into any interior, and in assembled form will not take up much space.
For the nursery fit folding vykatny sofas. Look for models that have wheels - a child can disassemble them without the help of parents. Also, the child will cope with the folding sofa "accordion", but it is better to refuse the "French folding bed". It should be placed in the living room - where it will be laid out once a year for the arrival of relatives.
Buying a sofa for a nursery is not an easy task, and its solution must be approached deliberately, but you should not save on buying a sofa — it should be comfortable, high-quality and easy to use, preferably with an orthopedic mattress. The best option for a child will be a sofa with a wooden frame, filled with polyurethane and covered with a cloth that is easy to clean.
Among the huge variety of designs, it is better to choose a eurobook or a roll-out sofa - a teenager will be able to make out these models himself.
