Mandatory on its territory there should be a window to day in its corner there was natural lighting.
For the newborn, it is necessary to equip the corner in such a way that a cot, a changing table, a chest of drawers and cleanlings, shelves, or a toy box. As the baby will grow, there will also have to make a place where he will do creative classes. To do this, put a comfortable table and high chair, where it will sculpt, draw, and hang a magnetic board on the wall. Also on the walls can be placed other training elements.
For a schoolboy, you will need a full-fledged workplace, a wardrobe for things. More space will take and bed. For saving area, you can use a sliding sofa. But the option is more optimal when the bed is located on the second floor, and the table and shelves are located at the bottom. In this case, you need to take care that the ladder is comfortable and safe.
Rules of effective zoning
Before separating the corner for the child, you need to do at least an approximate drawing to understand how it is better to organize space so that the crumble was comfortable.
First, it is worth thinking about how it will be a children’s corner from an adult half. These can be different options:
- Beautifully decorated septum of plasterboard;
- sliding plastic systems;
- dense or light curtains;
- Original shirma;
- Big Stellazh.
The newborn needs a special baby cot, it is necessary to place it away from the window so that there are no drafts, but if necessary, it would be possible to ventilate the room without prejudice to the child’s health. From excess light and cold air will save tight cavity.
When the child grows up, he will need a full-fledged bed with an orthopedic mattress instead of a baby cot. It is better to choose options where there is at the bottom of the boxes in which bodies can be placed and other things. It can be a beautiful children’s sofa in the form of a car, carriage, fairytale animal. Older children love to sleep on the second floor. Such beds also have their own advantages in a limited space. Sleeping place at the top allows you to place a workplace under it or space for games and even build a place for sports activities, and maybe just place things in the chest or toys on the shelves and in boxes.
In the first years of life, great importance for the child takes place for games. It is best to place a soft carpet on the floor. Kids love to build from cubes of the tower, design aircraft and cars, build car and railways on the floor. So that all toys are in their places should be enough seats in which you can clean them. A successful option will be wall lockers and shelves where you can place books and toys.
In a well-lit place, it is desirable by the window, there must be a comfortable table and a chair, where the child will be engaged in creativity, learn to write and read. As sports facilities for physical development, a small ladder, a horizontal bar for pull-ups.

It must be a comfortable, quite a large table where the monitor from the computer can be placed, and there will be enough space for training for lessons. To the table necessarily need a comfortable chair or chair, on which the child will not spoil the posture.
In addition, shelves or racks for books, textbooks, notebooks are needed. It can be a large rack, placed perpendicularly, which just burns down the children’s half of the adult.
When it is decided that and how to equip, you need to think about exactly where to place things, how to issue space, which choose materials, pick up the decor.
The question of sufficient admission of light is very important, especially if the child spends a lot of time for lessons and creative classes. It is best to equip an apartment in the best way that the parental half has its own lighting, and the children’s – its. Then in the evening the improvised room will be fully covered, and if necessary, the light turns off and the child will go to sleep, while parents on their half can still do homemade.
In addition to the chandelier, the child will also need additional light sources. For example, for a newborn, a night light is needed above the bed so that you can always control the baby and make the necessary manipulations without disturbing his sleep.
For a schoolchild, a good table lamp is needed, which will create additional lighting during the training of lessons.
Walls in the room for a child need to make out in bright calm colors. First, it will visually increase the space, secondly, with such tones it is easier to relax and relax. Too bright and contrasting shades will quickly annoy and tire. It is best to choose such colors:

Walls can be painted and painted one of the walls by making it another color. You can also combine materials, wallpapers with paint or decorative plaster with wallpaper, or paint and plaster.
It should be borne in mind that all materials should be safe for a child, it cannot be saved on this.

In a small area, you should not create a big journey. The child is primarily necessary such items:
- bed or sofa;
- table and chair;
- cabinet or chest of storage of things;
- Rack or shelves for books;
- Boxes for toys.
One wall can be placed bed. Next to it put a closet in which clothes will be stored. Over the bed is permissible to place the shelves for toys. But you need to ensure that they are carefully fixed.
On the contrary, the workplace should be located, where the table and the chair will be located, the rack with books and the shelves with textbooks. If the space allows, on the same side, you can accommodate a sports simulator who is useful for a child for physical development.
There are many sports accessories that occupy very little space. Enough to have a special rug for classes, and to it, for example, dumbbells, a small phytball.
If the size of the room is very small, you should think about the transformer furniture. Then the bed may look like a simple panel, and on the night it is separated from the wall. A miniature couch-chair at night can turn into a full-fledged bed.
