Designs are the foremost aspect that seizes the attention of any kid’s room interiors. More importantly, when it comes to a kid’s bedroom, safety should be given the top priority. Studies suggest that furniture tip-over injuries in children, especially those under six, are the most common. It adds to the list of reasons to safeguard the children's bedroom with every required precaution. Kids love jumping and running around and play all through the day. Keeping an eye on their every step is a task for the parents. Here are the essential safety measures we recommend to ensure that adventures never take a backseat for your kid. Being a responsible kid’s room company, we at Magical Nest, ensure that all our rooms are completely kid’s safe in all aspects.

From sharp edges to electrical points and fabrics to decors, every element in the room must be kid-friendly for a risk-free space so that kids can access every part of their room without getting injured.

Bye-Bye sharp edges

Sharp edges are the most harmful. With children being who they are, playful around, round edges or edges with masks are the go-to precautions. The corners of the tables, bed, and the knobs of the storage and cabins in the room have smooth textures with blunt edges that cause no harm to the kids. At Magical Nest, all our furniture has soft, round edges.

Cage the Power

Curiosity is at its peak in kids. Fiddling with things is not uncommon. The tiny eyes’ attention goes to the power sockets in the room. Hence, electric points are covered, with no visible wires in the room, so it does not urge the kids to dissect and try to become young engineers.

We at Magical Nest, personalize every kid's bedroom according to the parent's and kids' choices and preferences. Safety and design go hand-in-hand with zero compromises on either. The wings of the fan are smaller and covered, especially in the rooms with a bunk bed or loft area that make the space absolutely safe for the kids to play on.

High Bars

Height is another aspect to be cautious about. The beds are protected with bars so your kids can sleep peacefully, stretching their arms and legs without fearing rolling out off the edge. The bunk bed and loft area are loved by kids but parents' concern is the height. Not to worry, it is safeguarded with railings that act as barriers.

Strong Furniture

Furniture that can withstand the energy and playfulness of kids is a must-have in a kid's room. Children are naturally active and love to jump and play, especially in groups. So, it's important to select furniture that can withstand the rough and tumble of everyday play. At Magical Nest, we create lofts that can take up to 250kg weight. These lofts are not only fun but also functional, as kids can play board games or even jump on them without worrying about the furniture falling apart. This adds to the overall safety and durability of the room.

Bedding and Mattresses

When it comes to selecting bedding and mattresses, opt for materials that are flame-retardant and hypoallergenic to ensure the safety of your child. Also, ensure that the bed frame and mattress are the appropriate sizes for your child. A twin-size bed is recommended for children over 6 years old.

Design and Layout

Finally, consider the overall design and layout of the room. Keep in mind that your child will be spending a lot of time in this space, so it's important to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere that promotes learning and play. Avoid clutter and choose functional and fun decor that will inspire your child's creativity. It is important that the furniture is proportional to the room size and not overcrowded, this will reduce the chance of tripping or falling.

Wood, paint, and other materials

One important aspect to consider is the toxicity of the materials and paints used in your child's room. Many conventional paints and finishes contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which can be harmful to both the environment and human health. These VOCs can cause a range of symptoms, including headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems, and have been linked to more serious health issues like cancer and neurological disorders. When selecting furniture and decor, look for items that are made from natural, non-toxic materials such as solid wood, cotton, and linen. Avoid items that are made from synthetic materials or contain formaldehyde or other chemical preservatives. At Magical Nest, all our materials are completely non-toxic, non-VOC, and do not contain any formaldehyde.

In conclusion, safety should always be the top priority when designing and decorating your child's room. By choosing sturdy, non-toxic materials and features that promote stability and durability, you can create a space that is both safe and functional for your child to grow and play. At Magical Nest, safety is at the core of everything that we design and that’s why our kid's rooms are the safest in India.
