1. When good planning determines the right growth of the child

When dealing with the client, it is important to study in depth what are the needs of the individual, trying to satisfy them, taking into account the contingent limits such as the budget available and the spatial characteristics that are available. The ultimate goal is to make the people who will inhabit the spaces happy, and if those people have children or teenagers the task is even more difficult.    

The bedroom design is very important because it is a space where the child will grow up, where they will meet to play and study; the environment that will accompany the boy over time during the phases of his life. It is therefore of fundamental importance to take into account some characteristics with a particular focus on the social and psychological point of view.     

The first factor that will determine the physical conformation of the space and that will influence the design choices is the rapid change in the age of the user and consequently in personal tastes. Today on the market it is possible to find furnishing solutions that can evolve over time according to the needs of the newborn who will become a boy over time. It is a choice that can overcome the problem of progressive change but which risks not coinciding with the taste of the child who will be increasingly demanding over the years.  

It is therefore necessary to make an initial choice, based on the budget available and on the flexibility of the environment. It is important to point out that on the market there is a wide choice of solutions that satisfy all needs even at low cost and that allows you to replace even just part of the furniture according to the needs of the moment.  

In the event that you want to contain expenses, the optimal solution is to opt for neutral and long-term exploitable furniture customized by accessories suitable for specific ages. If, on the other hand, the budget allows it, you can indulge yourself with more particular lines that emulate soft shapes of clouds and flowers for babies and cartoon characters for school-age children. Then there are the wall decorations, very effective for the child's interaction and easy to apply and remove if necessary.

Fairy-tale illustrations are perfect for babies, comics are suitable for children, while skylines of famous cities and graffiti go well with the taste of teenagers. As needs change over time, it is important to think long term. For this purpose, wall stickers and washable paints are perfect. In fact, both allow to affix and remove decorations with great ease. In any case, the main objective is to find the right balance between functionality and aesthetics, guaranteeing the best daily liveability

2. Safety and mobility in spaces

The study of spatial conformation is the basis of any renovation or ex novo project. In the event that the space is small, it is necessary to study very well the most functional solution that makes the most of the environment. As for the child's bedroom, it is important to divide it into real areas dedicated to specific purposes; in neonatal age it will be necessary a space for the change, one for the baby food and one for the sleep. As the child grows up and begins to interact, new needs will arise, such as playing and subsequently carrying out schoolwork.

The subdivision of the space also helps the correct education of the child who will thus learn to have well marked the hours of the day and to define personal habits.

He will understand that there is a schedule for duties and one for rewards and will learn to move in the functional environment for every need. Security is also a fundamental prerogative of the environments we live in, even more so if they are experienced by children, who are much more vulnerable. The first step is therefore to study and predict as much as possible the movements and paths that the child will be able to make over time.

The walkways and trajectories must be safe, free from protrusions or elements that are dangerous to children; useful for this purpose are the corner protectors which, affixed to furniture and accessories, prevent injuries in the event of any accidental impacts. In addition, in the early stages of life, when the child learns to crawl and then to walk, the presence of shockproof mats and floor areas can help to feel more comfortable. These are simple solutions to affix to the ground that require undemanding maintenance and cleaning and that can be removed when they are no longer considered necessary. In the bedrooms it is necessary to pay particular attention since the floor should not be considered only a surface on which to walk, but a space to live, where to sit, play and take the first steps.

The characteristics of solidity, comfort, thermo-acoustic insulation and safety are therefore the basis for correct choices and efficient performance. 

Another element to consider even before choosing furniture and objects is the material of the same which must be non-toxic and natural in order to respect the health of children. The paints that will cover the wall surfaces must be water-based, while the furnishings must be free of chemical glues and materials of non-certified origin. Last but not least to consider is the aesthetic performance which in these cases plays an important role; in addition to blending harmoniously with the rest of the house, the finishes chosen specifically must be warm and welcoming and arouse the interest of the little user, perhaps through fairytale motifs (in the case of carpet and anti-shock inserts) or thanks to the insertion of textile accessories that are soft and colorful.

The fundamental objective is therefore to optimize the space and make it safe and functional. In the event that we are faced with a small environment it is important to seek solutions that allow you to have everything you need and at the same time to move comfortably and without obstacles. There are many proposals on the market that help those who are faced with the spatial constraint; for example, you can choose between bridge bedrooms, loft beds or retractable beds and sliding desks and space-saving containers. These furnishings, in addition to gaining free space to play, stimulate the creativity of the little ones. A useful and aesthetically pleasing idea is characterized by the rigid poufs that perform the dual function of seat and support surface. With the passage of time it has become increasingly easier to find flexible, modular but also pleasing to the eye solutions thanks to the studied details and heterogeneous materials capable of satisfying the most demanding tastes. What apparently may seem like a constraint, thus becomes an interesting starting point to train the imagination and creativity of young and old.
