I’m currently busy doing a playroom that will need to accomodate a 4 year old, a 7 year old and occasionally older as well as younger kids.
This huge age group has definite changes in furniture needs so I opted to look at bigger furniture than the average toddler furniture available as this sized furniture is not suitable for older kids.
Here are some guidelines for choosing chair and table sizes for your kids:
The easiest way to check if a chair is the correct hight for your child is for them to sit on it. Their feet should touch the floor with their knees bent at 90 degrees. A table should be about 20 cm above the chair height, this gap gets slightly bigger the older the child gets.
Choosing the correct sized furniture will ensure longer use, as well as a better overall fit and ergonomics for your child.
