You like furniture that's just right, and so will your child. Child-sized chairs, tables, benches, desks and shelves will help transform a nursery into a kid's space your child will love. A brand new bed that's the perfect size for your big boy is a nice addition, but even if you have a functioning bed, adding a few other pieces will customize the space and make it wholly his own. To integrate all those small pieces into a cohesive design, create functional groupings, like a homework corner and a distinct play zone. Anchor them in the space with colorful area rugs in kid-friendly prints.
