Rearward-facing Baby Seats

There has been a lot in the news recently about the correct car seat for your child. The safest way for children to travel is in a child car seat that is suitable for their weight and size, and is correctly fitted in the car. A properly fitted child car seat will help to prevent your child from being thrown about inside the vehicle, or ejected from it, if there is a crash. It will also absorb some of the impact force, and provide some protection from objects.

There are different types of car seats depending on you child’s age, Rearward-facing baby seats, Forward-facing child seats, Booster Seats and Booster Cushions, Isofix Seats and i-size seats.

The Rearward-facing baby seats are designed with deep sides for impact protection, and plenty of support in the contoured shape. A group 0+ car seat, ideal for transporting newborns or infants up to 13kg/29lbs (approximately 12-15 months).

The Maxi-Cosi Pebble baby car seat from John Lewis comes complete with removable support pillow for newborns, headrest and harness pads for added comfort and an integrated sun canopy for shade on bright days. Additional features include a storage compartment and easy to remove covers for cleaning.

Maxi Cosi Pebble Car Seat

This car seat goes above and beyond minimum standards to ensure maximum safety and added piece of mind for parents. To ensure your baby stays comfortable in their car seat as they grow, the harness and head hugger easily adjusts together

The Cosatto Hold Car Seat (Go Brightly) from Kiddicare is a group 0+ baby seat suitable from birth to 13kg/29lbs. This bright baby seat will be the talk of the playgroup, with its technicolour sunbeam. Bright red, fresh green, rich purple and blues, cuddle your baby head and provides ultimate protection. Your little one will stay snug thanks to chest pads, tummy pad, seat liner and layers of cushy wrapping around Hold’s tough core.

The Dualfix car seat from Britax is a group 0+ and 1 car seat, designed for use from birth to 4 years old, or up to 18kg. With the 360° rotation of the Dualfix, it's easy to place your child in the seat and change from rear to forward facing without re-installing. Use in the rearward position until your baby weighs 9kg.

This car seat includes all the safety features you'd expect from Britax, such as Isofix and a 5-point safety harness. You can be certain your child will be safe, no matter of their age or size. The 5-point safety harness with a one-pull adjustment distributes the impact forces out across the car seat and away from your baby. The newborn insert provides extra comfort and support for your baby. The height-adjustable headrest and harness with easy single-handed adjustment allows the seat to grow with your child without the need to remove and re-thread the harness. Deep, softly padded full side wings provide optimum side impact protection for your child along the entire seat. Multiple recline positions allow a comfortable sleeping position for your child that you can adjust without disturbing them.

Dinosaur Bedroom

Dinosaurs will always hold a fascination for little boys and girls with big imaginations as they are the real-life monsters which inhabit their fantasy worlds. Before long most little ones know the names of the most fearsome dinosaurs such as T-Rex and Stegosaurus and their dinosaur collection will grow from cuddly dinosaur toys to scary looking models that sit menacingly on their bookshelves. So why not indulge their passion for all things toothy and scaly by creating a dinosaur themed bedroom to rival the set of Jurassic Park – ok not quite perhaps but you can certainly have fun trying!

Dinotastic_Duvet_Set

From the Little Home Collection this Dino Was Here features simple cartoon dinosaurs  towering over treetops in  the Land of the Dinosaur with the occasional “GGGrrrrr!” to remind you that behind their cartoon like features lurks a ferocious beast! But not so scary that your jungle explorer can’t get his power nap.

Dinosaur Bedding Hiccups

The Hiccups dinosaur themed bedding set from Tescos is a detailed dinosaur prints and the soft light blue background that compliments the bold colours of the dinosaurs. The bedding set is 100% cotton so although it might look fierce, it’s gentle and soft on delicate skin. The design and colours are lovely and calming, and the fabric is good quality.

Children's dino themed duvet cover

Dinoscope duvet cover from Vertbaudet combines playful dinosaur images with hand shapes to make dinosaur shadow puppets as well as a little French thrown in – well they may be tucked up in bed but that’s no reason not to carry on learning is it? Again as with all good children’s bedding it’s 100% cotton and machine washable.

Kid's dinosaur themed bed

This Kidsaw Dinosaur Bed available from Amazon might not appeal to us as being conducive to a restful night’s sleep but kids love it! After all, no monsters hiding under the bed are going to take their chances with this T-Rex are they? Children are safely wrapped in his giant claws, protected from any nightmare. The bed comes as a flat pack and is easily assembled with slots and slats so parents should soon warm to it too!

Dinosaur Bedroom Accessories

Soft Toys & Comforters

Comforters come in all shapes and sizes: it could be a favourite teddy, a blanket or muslin, a soft toy or even a favourite sock or top!  Whatever it is, if it helps your baby to sleep, it’s probably worth having.  Studies have shown that babies with comforters of some sort do sleep better than those that go to bed with nothing.  When children have a favourite item or toy, they are more able to self soothe if they do wake up in the night, and this is essential to getting back to sleep on their own.

Parents who rock, cuddle or feed their baby to sleep find in the most part that when they wake in the night, they have to go through the same rigmarole during the night.  This is the only way that the baby will go back to sleep.  When they have a comforter of some sort, they manage to get to sleep independent of you being there.

Wallpaper for Children’s Rooms

Opinions are divided regarding the use of wallpaper to decorate a child’s room. Some parents prefer the overall effect that a good wallpaper design can create while others prefer the simple maintenance which painted walls can provide. There are, of course, alternatives and compromises to both options, but we’ll cover more of this later.

The History of Children’s Wallpaper

Vintage Mickey Mouse Wallpaper

Section of ‘Mickey Mouse’ wallpaper and frieze, from around 1930 – V&A Museum

The luxury of having sufficient space to provide dedicated rooms for children is a fairly recent phenomenon with most except the very privileged, so the history of children’s wallpaper is rather short. Early examples of children’s wallpapers have been discovered and thought to originate from the late 19th Century and it is believed that the use of wallpaper in children’s rooms and nurseries didn’t become commonplace until much later.

The first known designs of wallpaper for children were based upon the illustrations of the popular literature of the time with an aim to instilling a positive influence upon a child’s sensitivity to his or her environment.

As the use of wallpaper became more widespread so this idea continued – with most designs tending to be illustrative and featuring characters from children’s books, nursery rhymes and fairytales. Although the designs of wallpapers today have become more modern they tend to follow similar influences and themes.

The Victoria & Albert Museum have more on the history of children’s wallpaper.

Types of Wallpaper

Patterned Wallpaper

The wallpaper is made from one single layer of paper, in various weights and thickness. Although the most traditional form of wall covering, paper is not particularly durable with finger marks and crayoning proving impossible to remove. Also, trying to line up the patterns makes for an interesting afternoon!

Vinyl or Washable Wallpaper

Often a paper backing which is laminated with a second vinyl patterned layer. The advantage here is that these kind of wall coverings offer the benefits of traditional wallpaper with the advantage of a durable surface which can be wiped clean and is more resistant to everyday damage. The disadvantage of vinyl paper is that  there is little or no ‘give’ which means the walls need to be perfectly smooth and often lined to get a good result.

Textured Wallpaper

Sometimes referred to as ‘relief wall coverings’ these textured papers are popular with parents who want to cover existing walls but who also want the advantage of being able to paint the surface too. The textured surface serves to break-up the way light reflects from a plain wall surface and provides a softer and more complex visual effect. You can now buy lining paper which has a very fine texture and is a modern day alternative to the infamous wood-chip.

Estimating Wallpaper

There are many on-line tools available to calculate how many rolls of wallpaper you will need. Generally, a standard roll of wallpaper will cover an area of 5m ² and an average sized room will need require between 8 and 12 rolls. When measuring for wallpaper it is best to over-estimate and to ignore doors and windows. You should also allow a certain amount for wastage and matching — depending upon the pattern. As a rule of thumb say 10% for plain or simple patterns and 20% to 30% for more complex designs.

Wallpaper Designs

The choice of wallpaper for your child’s room is no longer limited to simple character based designs. You have no end of designer papers available in bold and colourful designs, traditional vintage themes and an eclectic mix of floral prints to choose from which will transform a plain bedroom into a colourful and imaginative illustration of your child’s unique personality.

Kid’s Ergonomic Desks

As a parent of a school age child you’ll be all too aware of the amount of time our kids are spending sat at a desk in front of a computer or doing homework – and you’ll also appreciate that bad posture can lead to problems in later life. You can help your kids develop good posture though by having desks and chairs which are height adjustable. There is now quite a good selection of children’s study furniture with an ergonomic design and it doesn’t have to cost more than the standard alternative.

Kid’s ergonomic desks are not only beneficial for posture and comfort, but can also be  multi-functional, sleek and contemporary, giving their rooms a designer feel. Desks are a must for secondary school children and as more and more kids are shunning University campuses, these desks will provide a useful study area for years to come.

Kid's budget level ergo desk

The Moll Starter Desk offers the benefits of a posture friendly design with a budget price comparable to many standard form children’s desks. Available from Back2  it’s a basic design that does exactly what a desk should do. The height is fully adjustable with a hook-in fitting that is easy enough for children to operate. It also has two pen trays, a book holder and is anti-slip.

Ergonomic desk designed for children

For a sleeker approach you could try  the Moll desk with adjustable legs, top and extra-wide drawer from BackinAction.co.uk. The height of the desk is easily adjusted and the desktop itself can be inclined to a more natural position which is great for reading and artwork. The book stand can be clipped off and moved around the desk and the large drawer comes in extremely handy. It even has a sliding arm-rest which doubles as an anti-slip feature and a ruler!

Children's ergonomic desk with custom space themed design

The Moll  desk is also available in in range of custom designs – this outer space design would sit perfectly in a spaced themed room. You can also choose from fantasy, flowers and hearts for a truly personalised feel.

Children's wooden desk with height adjustable legs and tilting table top

The Haba Marcello Desk from Kid’s Rooms is a quality wooden desk with height adjustable legs and tilting table top. The idea is that this desk can be adjusted as your child grows, so they can never grow out of it – even the matching chair has an adjustable back rest!
Unlike many other ergonomic desks, it’s made entirely from wood for a natural finish that is much more traditional than metal, yet it still has a modern edge. The netting pockets are very handy for pencil cases, books and nick nacks.

Although the design is original and compact the working area does look rather restricted and this might prove a problem for older kid’s?

Children's fully adjustable study desk

The Vision Desk from Ropox is part of a range of adjustable desks and study furniture that is primarily for children and adults with disabilities but which can also be beneficial for  able-bodied children. This desk has two sections that tilt individually by way of a  hand crank, making it extremely easy for children to operate.

Maxi Bobby

Maxi is the “traditional” school desk and the largest kids height adjustable desk and chair set sold by Best Desk.

Whilst retaining a height adjustable desk and chair, the Maxi does not have an adjustable angled desktop. Instead, the Maxi is a desk with a lid, which lifts up safely by way of a hydraulic strut giving access to the spacious storage area underneath. The lid is angled in the normal position, thus allowing the correct posture for reading. It can be adjusted to lay flat simply by lifting the levers on each side, so that your child can write and play.

The seatback of the height adjustable chair is ventilated to create better airflow. Maxi includes a foldaway cup holder to prevent spillage of drinks and a handy slot in the desktop to store pens and pencils. An optional bookstand which rotates through 360 degrees and LED lamp are available as extras.

Bobby is blue, but not sad. Boys will be happy with the strong, but not so dark colour, and Chelsea fans even more so! Having a good surface and correct posture will enhance your boy’s study time. Use the handy hook on the side to store your water bottle, to keep your brain healthy as well as active.

If you are looking specifically for study furniture which is designed for accessibility then DLF Data have a comprehensive listing of products and suppliers.

Craft Room Design Ideas

For anyone who is truly passionate about crafts, having a dedicated room for the purpose makes an amazing difference.  Access to all the right equipment and materials exactly where they’re needed makes the process much easier – no more retrieving bits and pieces from down the back of the sofa or having to clear a project at a delicate stage off the dining table in time for dinner.  No more having to fit around other peoples’ activities in the same space.  A dedicated craft room means that the crafter can also acquire the mental freedom that’s needed to concentrate on being creative.

Craft Room

All sorts of rooms can be adapted for this purpose.  A spare bedroom is often easiest and may benefit from existing cupboard storage space.  A loft space can provide great overhead lighting if there are skylights, but it can be quite an effort to get furnishings and larger pieces of equipment up there.  A garden room is ideal in terms of natural light and works well as long as it can be kept warm enough in winter.

Letting in the light

Setting up the right lighting in a craft room is of prime importance, making it possible to focus on the work properly and to see small details.  Nothing beats natural light, so a room with big windows is best and mirrors can be used to bounce that light around.  Sometimes, though – in the height of summer or when there’s snow on the ground – that light can get too much.  Shutters like the ones at Plantation Shutters are a great solution.  They don’t get in the way or catch on things as curtains can and they provide fine control over the amount of light entering the room.

For evening work, a good desk lamp is a must, but it’s also important to have enough light in the rest of the room to make finding things easy.  A dimmer switch can be helpful in getting the balance right. You can also obtain daylight bulbs, even in the new low-energy versions, that simulate natural daylight.

Craft Storage

Setting up storage

Good storage is essential in a craft room.  Because many craft items are small, it’s important to keep them well organised so they don’t get lost.  Plastic tubs are useful for this – either transparent or carefully labelled ones – and shelving can be chosen to store them.  Whilst it’s useful to keep the items that are needed most often closest to the workspace, it’s a good idea to use alphabetical order on the rest of the shelving to make finding things easier.

Alongside shelving, pin boards and hooks on the wall can be useful for many things.  A tall storage bin is handy for rolls of fabric; paper or card and wall-mounted rollers are great for ribbon and tape.

The right workspace

Having a good workstation is also important for happy crafting.  Exactly what’s needed will depend on the craft involved. For instance, working with fabric or large pieces of paper might mean a large table is needed for spreading things out (extending dining tables are great for this), but some things are universal.  These include having an adjustable seat and a table or desk at the right height, a convenient wastebasket and handy nearby storage (shelves or small drawers) for the most commonly needed items.  If these details are right, the rest will follow.

Playroom Ideas for Children

Sometimes children need more space than their bedroom provides to allow play, and a separate playroom is sometimes needed as a vital element in a child’s development. Having a space that is dedicated to their sole use will encourage them to look after it. From an adult’s point of view it stops the rest of the home looking like a dumping ground for toys.

Design ideas

Most very young children like brash, bright colours, so often playrooms get decorated in blues, reds, greens and yellows, which can be a bit garish to adult eyes. To tone the visuals down a little bit, turn one entire wall into a huge chalkboard with special chalk paint, which comes in a range of colours. The children will love having a wall they are allowed to draw on.

There are some common themes that all children love; dinosaurs, fairy-tale princesses, pirate ships and farms, and the walls are great places to play these themes out. If a parent has a talent for art, he or she could consider painting a mural on the walls, or opt for stick on figures. Dinosaurs could roam a swamp landscape or characters from Disney could populate a castle scene.

Classic children’s literature provides some great characters as well, such as Alice in Wonderland or Beatrix Potter with Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggywinkle. Add unique features by writing well-known quotes from the books on the walls, such as “Curiouser and curiouser” from Alice, and “Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits,” from Beatrix Potter.

Consider the ceiling and floor as extra walls; paper the ceiling with a sky or star scene for playrooms with a Nature theme, or lay carpet that features a motor racing track to play on or that resembles the sea for a nautical themed room.

Furniture

A playroom will need some basic furniture. This will include a table and chairs for the children to sit at, for both eating and playing; a media unit or centre for the television and DVD players that children cannot seem to do without these days, which also help to tidy away cables and other hazards; some soft seating, such as beanbags, and of course, storage. Install bookshelves or shelving to take not only books, but also small storage boxes for all the little things, such as colouring pens and pencils, DVDs, and small toys. Use larger boxes or fitted cupboards for larger toys and games.

Playroom_chairs

It is also a good idea to have some furniture suitable for adults, so that they can spend some time in the playroom with their kids. This is also a good way of allowing a playroom to grow with the children. A sofa bed, for example, not only provides sensible seating for adults, but also can be pulled out and used for sleepovers and pyjama parties.

As the children grow up, the room’s decoration will need to change. The murals will go, the colours will be toned down, and the multitude of games and toys will become obsolete. Instead, children may want pinball games, table football, or just as likely, a desk with a computer and games station.
