Children's Armchairs and Sofas
Once your toddler has moved past the crawling and beginning walking phases, ideally, it's a good time to introduce them to their own furniture. While you may enjoy cuddles, games, and TV programmes from your own couch or armchair, giving kids their own place to lounge (that's a little bit lower to the ground) gives them a place to relax, read books and enjoy spending time with mum, dad and siblings. There are a few choices when it comes to kids' chairs, couches and other furniture, with one bound to fit your home's needs.
What Are the Benefits of an Armchair?
There are quite a few benefits of a children's armchair, some of which are listed below:
- A place to call their own: A personalised armchair is a place they can call truly theirs.
- A time-out spot: Have one solitary place for quiet time.
- A place to relax: Kids will have their very own spot to relax to watch their favourite shows or movies.
- Portable: Most armchairs are made of light materials that are easily moved from room to room.
What Are Some Sofa Features?
Choosing a kids' couch or a kids' sofa also comes with some different features, especially if you have several children that would like to spend time together, such as siblings. It's also a great idea for pretend play and playdates. Some sofa features include:
- Extra Room: A child's sofa offers more room to stretch out.
- A carbon copy: You can easily find a kids' couch that looks like your own living room furniture.
- Daybed: Many kids' sofas also convert into a daybed or sofa bed, a great choice when someone isn't feeling well.
How Do I Take Care of Children's Furniture?
Just like adult furniture, kids' furniture will need some maintenance and upkeep through the years. However, many children's' couches and other furniture are already made of reliable materials to help withstand use and stains.
- Immediate action: If there's a spill or stain, try to wipe it immediately with a damp cloth and dish soap.
- For deeper stains: Try a used toothbrush or other small brush with bristles along with warm water and dish soap to get out deeper stains.
- A hand vacuum: Is a great idea for getting in little nooks and crannies of a children's couch or chair.
