What is worth having in a baby's annual room? Changes are coming!

baby room one year old inspirations

Change is my middle name. I love changes in life, at home and at work. Only in love I am constant and I do not accept them there. So there is a balance 😉

Santa's room, which you know was created for a newborn, extremely practical and comfortable, but above all for me. Mikołaj is over a year old and his room requirements have changed a lot. There is no space for toys, books, which he could have permanent access to, after all he loves them so much.

So there will be changes, not only in functionality, but also visual, let everyone have something nice for themselves 😉

And here are some of my ideas for what could be useful to children who are already a year old!

1. A place for toys

Extra shelves? Or maybe a bookcase? Drilled to the wall, of course, with containers on top of it?

2. Place for books

I think that the chest on wheels will work perfectly and help you wander with books between rooms, where we just feel like reading and watching

3. Table and chairs

For drawing, painting, reading, molding, doughing - isn't all this awaiting us in the near future?

4. Rag doll and clothes

To teach caring and care from an early age. Dress in pajamas, go to sleep. Ideally suited to learning body parts, colors, dressing, will develop manual skills and empathy.

5. Trolley for ...

Not necessarily for a doll, after all, you can also load your favorite toys, books or folded clothes into it and transport it from place to place. The turtle and the toy car are sure to go for a ride as well. Such a cart can also act as a pusher right away.

Who as a child didn't love "base building"? And then sit in it all day? Two chairs and a blanket, a table and a long tablecloth or blanket, an inverted sofa bed ... probably every child loves tight "own" places, a piece of their own space, giving a sense of security. So I think a small teepee tent in the room would be a shot at 10! Not to mention the little wooden house that makes me feel warm to my heart.

7. What would you add to my list?

Mmmm, it is widely known that we arrange children's rooms and we also buy toys for ourselves, so let me know what you would like?

    Crazy little dog ride stole my heart! Lovely 🙂 Thank you for a handful of inspiration!

    Interesting ideas for changes, and I will need such curiosities in arranging a room for a child. This is my first child, so he has many ideas, and the family is surprised why I start arranging everything so early, buying. What to wait for, at the last minute, or if I don't have strength. I prefer sooner, and only at the end can I refresh everything.

    Beautiful suggestions! 🙂 For me, teepee tents and rag dolls rule, idea and style in one 🙂

    Cool toys, great ideas. My daughter may be missing a year, but you can think about the future ... :) :)

  • Life and chill

    Great ideas 🙂 For now I'm at the stage of thinking about the interior design for a newborn 🙂

  • Andzia

    Everything's great! :) only these prices: / allow:)

      Don't worry - I am already preparing alternative DIY projects for you

    We have a teepee (made by my sister) and it works great. My daughter got a pusher with blocks for her birthday and we are carrying a doll in it 🙂 Anyway, a doll for such a child is a great thing: she can feed her, hug her, put her to sleep - I recommend it!

    I am glad that I came across your post, I am just before painting and decorating the children's room. Great inspirations, I will definitely use 🙂

  • 04.11.2015

    I dream of a teepee for my daughter, who ended her year in September. But first of all I am scared of their prices, and secondly too small space in the apartment. While the first can be dealt with and make a teepee yourself, the second is a bit bigger problem.
    Now I am waiting for the effects of the changes in the room ;-)

    • 04.11.2015

      It seems to me that such a teepee can be easily folded and put in a corner after playing, if one day it comes to us I will let you know if it's as simple as it looks
      And we have a habit of buying such larger things in the family as premium gifts - Miki got just such a premium balance bike for his 1st Birthday 🙂
      I can't wait for the results myself !!!

    I was charmed by the boxes and teepee! And they brought down… prices! I will probably have to think about some DIY in this regard. But for now it's just a matter of time, I'm just finishing arranging a baby room. I am using your last year's inspirations :-). And Santa's new room will be great! All things are beautiful, "my" colors and materials, I love wooden and rag toys. I will also be curious to follow Santa's reaction to a rag doll, I like the idea itself! Yours sincerely, Agnieszka

    Very cool ideas, we are also planning changes. 🙂
