Children’s room: how to create a healthy and warm environment


That’s where your kid spends most of the time. He sleeps, keeps loved ones, shares secrets with friends, cries when he feels frustrated and laughs. So you need to make room for health and well-being. We count as

is safe

Prefer furniture with rounded corners. In the windows, safety net (change every five years). Lockers should be accessible to the child so there is no risk of him trying to climb on it to achieve something. Keep bed with protective grille until the child is 5 years old. Lamp or dimmer (light dimmer) gives safety when awakening. Install shelves away from the bed and put protectors in the outlets.

does not have electronic stimuli
In times of cyber infancy, which children love to play video games, play on the computer, tablet or watch TV, keep these gadgets away from the room. According to experts, healthy room can not have anything that disrupts sleep, such as gadgets, bookshelf too crammed with books and even aquarium. They deserve a space apart in the house.

there are no insects
There are two options: mosquito nets or plug socket with antimosquito medicine. Aerosol insecticides, never. The mosquito net should be washed once a week by the powder. The plug may stay plugged in all night long, except in rooms where allergic children sleep. Observe the distance, indicated by the manufacturer, that must be between the child and the outlet with the antimosquito substance. Still, before you buy it, talk to your child’s pediatrician.

does not accumulate dust
On walls, avoid papers or apply only a barrel close to the ceiling. The curtains protect the room from the excess of sunlight and soften the light, giving a feeling of coziness. They should be easy to take off because they need to be washed biweekly, just like the crib protectors. The windows should be kept open during the day to ventilate. In cabinets, leave the top free as well as under the bed. They are places of difficult access and filled with dust. Use 100% cotton sheets because they are fresh and accumulate less dust. Babies do not need a pillow.

little table in the corner for studies, drawers and niches on the wall, guarding papers and pens are great for stimulating the child’s sense of organization from an early age. To store toys (kids, small, medium or large) and stuffed animals, chests and boxes are ideal. But let them lean against the walls, so children are less likely to trip over them. A good bedroom has free space for the child to play. Make sure the toys are in places that are easily accessible for your child to exercise autonomy. 

is cleaned the right way
Cleaning the furniture should be done with a damp cloth. That goes for blinds too. If you sweep or use a vacuum cleaner, dust mites are suspended in the room and may cause irritation to the respiratory tract. To disinfect, dilute one cap with bleach in each half liter of water. Pay attention to the little trimmings and stuffed animals that accumulate a lot of dust. You can wash it – believe me! – the plush in the washing machine by putting them in a pillow case or a wash bag. When dried, pack them in a plastic bag and leave them overnight in the freezer compartment. At low temperature kills all mites. Wash the curtains every three months with mild soap and water.

do not need carpet
Forget carpets and carpets, as both accumulate dust. Rugs can still make the child stumble. If you find it imperative to decorate the room, use a 100% natural model and tape it to the floor to prevent tumbling.

is enlightened
Welfare also comes from enlightenment, which must be abundant. Open windows air the environment.

changes color
Child’s room needs to have soft color? This is not the rule. It is important to ask your child what his or her favorite color is. The advantage of pastel shades is that, by changing objects, the room gets a new face. 

stay warm in winter and cool in summer 
Avoid, if possible, air-conditioning. It removes moisture from the air, resecting the nasal mucosa. Better the fan (indirect on the child) in the summer. And good pajamas and comforters in winter. Furry blankets collect dust. If you use heater, leave it on for a maximum of two hours and keep a bucket of water in the room and a towel inside to humidify the air. Also avoid placing your child’s bed next to the window to avoid drafts.
