Are you afraid to open your wardrobe, for fear a mountain of clothes might tumble down on your head? Are your shoes neatly ordered, or simply thrown in a pile? It’s all too easy to jam the doors shut and think, ‘Out of sight, out of mind‘, but it only takes a few clever storage solutions to turn your space into a well-ordered and accessible area. On the opposite page, we’ve added a hanging canvas bag from Howards Storage World to our Freedom Riva wardrobe, to create space to store jumpers, hats and T-shirts, while stylish storage and shoe boxes keep the space uncluttered.
If space is at a premium, the ingenious new Elfa system from The Storage Company could come in handy. With fittings in a mixture of metal and birch wood, the ‘wardrobe’ bolts to the wall and features a hanging rail, shoe rack, dresser shelf and storage baskets. Ideal for a spare bedroom or in an awkward corner, it could also be utilised as a space to store bed linen and towels, or pretty much anything you like.
We have recommended to made the change when the child is about 2 years old.
The crib so far been the reference furniture in the room, now it is the bed.
The child is much more independent and now begins a new stage, and can go to sleep in a bed.
If you purchased a convertible crib, you’ll have to change it to bed. There are many kinds of convertible cribs, but usually it becomes a bed of 190×90 cm or 180×80 cm.
Our child´s leisure and recreational space has also changed, now we need more space, a table to paint would be nice to introducing him/her to read or study habits that will come later.
We can also change other items, even colors.
The lighting in the first few months has been more subdued and soft, now we can change the intensity.
It is very likely that the creative impulses of the child require coating the wall with a base of washable paint, fingerprint-proof and scribbles.
Important add furniture and shelves for storage toys, books etc ..
We must bear in mind that the height is appropriate to the age of the child and his/her safety, as they are now very curious.

For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It is a place to do schoolwork, listen to music, play games, sprawl on the floor, rough-house, read, build models, daydream, visit with friends and keep innumerable possessions. You’ll need to plan carefully to create a room that serves all those functions, to be comfortable and inviting.

A cot will probably be your baby’s bed until he is two years or three years old. It should be strong and sturdy without cracked or broken slats, with no jagged points or edges.
If you are buying a new cot, it should conform to BS EN 716-2:2008, as all new cots on sale in the UK have to meet this standard. This standard ensures that the cot is deep enough to be safe for your baby, that the bars are the correct distance apart, and that the cot does not have cut-outs or steps.
If your cot is second-hand or borrowed, make sure the distance between each bar is no less than 2.5cm (1in) and no more than 6.5cm (2.6in). You should not be able to fit a soft-drink can between the slats. This is to prevent your baby’s head from slipping between the bars.
You can use your cot from the day your baby is born, if you like. However, many parents choose a Moses basket, crib, or carrycot for the first few months, or have their babies in the same bed as them. This is often because a newborn baby can look and feel a little lost in a big cot.
Every teenager should have a room, or part of the room where can study and prepare projects for school. If you have bigger house you can make one room specially for this purpose. But if you live in a small apartment and your space is limited you need to find some free corner and you should rearrange it in place for studying. That way your kid’s school stuff will be every time arranged and you will enable them easier learning.
Remenber that Teenage years can be dominated by school exams, so a tidy and organised study area in a teen’s bedroom is a must. Invest in a good quality desk and chair and fit some shelves above the desk area so your teen has plenty of space to store coursework and books.

Most teens need about 8½ to more than 9 hours of sleep each night. But about 1 in 4 teens has trouble sleeping. Lack of sleep can affect everything from our emotions to how well we focus on tasks like driving. It can affect sports performance, increase our chances of getting sick, and may be linked to weight gain in some people.
Which one of these are you most likely to try as a way to get a better night’s sleep?
Follow a relaxing bedtime routine
Turn off my phone and other devices
Go to bed earlier
How can we get the sleep we need? Here are some ideas:
Be active during the day. You’ve probably noticed how much running around little kids do — and how soundly they sleep. Take a tip from a toddler and get at least 60 minutes of exercise a day. Physical activity can decrease stress and help people feel more relaxed. Just don’t work out too close to bedtime because exercise can wake you up before it slows you down.
Avoid alcohol and drugs. Lots of people think that alcohol or drugs will make them relaxed and drowsy, but that’s not the case. Drugs and alcohol disrupt sleep, increasing a person’s chance of waking up in the middle of the night.
Say goodnight to electronics.
If you can’t make your bedroom a tech-free zone, at least shut everything down an hour or more before lights out. Nothing says, “Wake up, something’s going on!” like the buzz of a text or the ping of an IM.
Keep a sleep routine. Going to bed at the same time every night helps the body expect sleep. Creating a set bedtime routine can enhance this relaxation effect. So unwind every night by reading, listening to music, spending time with a pet, writing in a journal, playing Sudoku, or doing anything else that relaxes you.
Expect a good night’s sleep. Stress can trigger insomnia, so the more you agonize about not sleeping, the greater the risk you’ll lie awake staring at the ceiling. Instead of worrying that you won’t sleep, remind yourself that you can. Say, “Tonight, I will sleep well” several times during the day. It can also help to practice breathing exercises or gentle yoga poses before bed.
Everyone has a sleepless night once in a while. But if you regularly have trouble sleeping and you think it’s affecting your mood or performance, talk to your doctor. consulta a tu médico.

Teens need about 9 1/4 hours of sleep each night to function best (for some, 8 1/2 hours is enough). Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights.
Teens tend to have irregular sleep patterns across the week — they typically stay up late and sleep in late on the weekends, which can affect their biological clocks and hurt the quality of their sleep.
