Children’s ability to learn has a lot to do with – taking breaks from learning. Activating body and mind through play helps to make sessions of concentration more effective. Why not make room for both in your child’s room?
Take a break, build a city
With MÅLA cardboard town templates, your child can create a house (or a whole cityscape) from scratch, each step with its own challenge and reward.
There’s a desk for every age
Just as learning changes over time, so do learning bodies. IKEA has a study-space size for every child (as well as ergonomic complements, like a handy footrest) to make homework sessions not just endurable, but enjoyable.
Study and play on every level
Spreading activities to different parts of a room – reading in bed, toy houses on a cabinet, brick sets on the floor – can be a good way to include movement and variation for your child. (And perhaps a tidying-up session every now and then, for good measure.)
Put play projects on display
Some enterprises – like creating a town all by yourself – require more effort than others. A good idea can be to make them part of the room’s decoration. That way, they can be returned to, added to, and admired over time.
A bed with benefits
Besides being the snuggliest place in the home, a bed is an ideal spot for storage. Spacious, wide boxes underneath, pockets for accessible necessities on the side, and you’ve just cleared the room of a heap of clutter.
Pegboards – order and fun in one
Pegboards are a perfect way to organise things that you want visible, accessible and don’t mind showing off. If this describes your child’s every last toy, it can be a good idea to complement with a wardrobe (for the things that at least you want out of sight).

Safety at home for babies and children
Bumps and bruises are a part of growing up – but home should be a place where children don’t suffer a serious injury. To make their everyday life as safe as possible, a good starting point is to look at your home furnishing through a child’s eyes.
