Sharing a bedroom with baby

Whether you’re sharing a bedroom with your little one through choice or necessity, these simple ideas can help create a space that is calm, functional, and easy to share.

Create a cosy corner

Choose a corner of your bedroom for your toddler’s cot, dress with cushions and blankets, and add a child-friendly reading lamp at that level. Remove one side of the cot once your little one is ready to roam around.

Give your child’s furry best friend a bed of its own – soft toys make great playmates that last a lifetime.

Make space for story time

Children love to mimic their parents. With a mini version of the STRANDMON armchair, you can both take a seat to read the same story together, or different ones once they’re ready to start enjoying books independently.

Repurpose your changing table

Find another use for your changing table as your child grows. This one converts into a storage chest, handy for storing items you want out of sight and putting favourite toys and books on show.
