One of the most difficult things about a child-based space is making sure that it’s usable now and in the future. Their needs change so much, so you need to think ahead and pre-empt how things you create for how they live now will adapt in the future.
Edith has recently moved from sleeping in a cot to a bed. She’s also moved out of nappies and is now toilet trained. This means that we no longer need the changing table/chest of drawers that we’ve been using to store her clothes.
So, we’ve decided to build a large built-in wardrobe which will be practical now and in the future. It can house all her clothes, bedding and towels as well as other things like dressing-up clothes etc. It should also be plenty big enough for when she gets into clothes a bit more and needs more wardrobe space.
