How big should a child’s room be? Many builders ask themselves this question when it comes to the floor plan of the children’s room. People play, sleep, learn or chill in the children’s room. So it can be a bedroom, playroom and living room in one. The children’s room is a place that changes due to age and should therefore be changeable. The size of a children’s room mainly depends on which functions should be combined in the children’s room. Is there a separate play room? Is the wardrobe in an extra room? Age when moving in also plays a role. There are many possibilities and tricks to set up a children’s room, no matter how big it is.
Minimum sizes of children’s room
There is no legal minimum size for children’s rooms. We advise our customers to plan with a minimum size of approx. 12 m² living space. Of course, more living space offers more freedom to develop. The children’s rooms in our customers’ houses have an average of approx. 14 m². A children’s room should have space for a bed, a wardrobe, storage space and space to play. At a For teenagers, the space for playing is often replaced by a youth bed with a width of 1.20-1.40 m, a sofa and often by a TV. Due to the age-related change, we recommend choosing a flexible and multifunctional facility.
The size of a children’s room is not always freely selectable and is often already specified, e.g. in a rented apartment or in an existing house. The question here is not "How big should the nursery be?" But "How can I optimally furnish a nursery?" A child’s room under 10 m² can offer just as much space to play and relax with just a few tools and tricks as a larger child’s room. If the room height allows, loft beds or galleries are ideal to create more space. A pedestal with a drawer, as in the SCHÖNER WOHNEN house, creates plenty of storage space for toys or books. Another solution is an alcove bed. A corner alcove bed with a closet to accommodate everything you need, such as clothes and toys. There are even models with a pull-out desk, so your child has enough space to play and it can be quickly tidied up. Walk-in closets in the corners are also great. These offer excellent storage space and are often used by the children as hiding places or retreats.
The size of a child’s room is not necessarily critical to whether a child is in his room feels comfortable. Even in large children’s rooms there can be chaos due to lack of storage space and too many toys. The children are often overwhelmed with it. So there is no correct answer to the question of how big a child’s room should be. It depends on many factors and the needs of the children. If you have the opportunity to plan the children’s room generously, that’s great for the children. You can live freely in your child’s room, be creative, invite friends or retreat.
