So, I've finally stopped waiting for DH to decorate DD1's bedroom (I think he's mourning the loss of his study and unable to bring himself to assist in the change-over )and have booked the painter to come in and do it. Now she needs furniture. It's quite a small room, so I'm thinking of white furniture to stop it feeling too dark. Perhaps Shaker style? Has anyone bought anything like this recently that they would recommend? She's 5, but I want furniture that will take her up to her teenage years, so nothing too obviously 'little girl', IYSWIM.
Maybe a cabin style in light coloured wood might be a good option? I've seen plenty in Argos if you wants something for a few years, but not until she's a teenager maybe!
We bought the high sleeper from M&S for dd - she hated it so we had to dismantle and use as separate bed/desk/wardrobe parts. I also thought it was too chunky and cumbersome for a child's bedroom (looked better in the photo)
I like the quality of Aspace furniture- although t does still require some assembly at home, it is much better quality than usual flatpack stuff. They do have some lovely ranges. I'm a bit cross with them though because I have had to wait ages for a 2 man delivery to my area for a wardrobe but payment is taken when you order so I will have paid for a wardrobe to sit in their warehouse for 10 weeks.
Ds has the Thuka mid-sleeper in the first link. I bought it from Argos 3 years ago and it's great. I can't remember the exact cost but it was definitely under £300 for the bed, drawers, bookcase and desk. Ds is nearly 7 now and still likes making dens underneath it (not that there is much room there after all his toys have been put away!)!!
