The children's table is an element that is rapidly becoming part of the daily life of children and parents. Adapted to the evolution and age of your child, Rêves et Merveilles has selected a wide range of children's tables to suit all ages and all needs. Design, functional and original children's tables.
Our favourites: the Bohème children's table from BONTON and the Play children's table from OEUF NYC which will give free rein to your children's creativity.
Choosing a children's table requires attention to certain features for proper use.
First of all, make your choice according to the desired use.
In pre-school or kindergarten age, the children's desk can be used as a support for manual work. When you think of handicrafts, you think of painting, drawing, colouring and, by inference, stains. For this purpose, choose a table with a child's chair or stool that is easy to clean and resistant to stubborn stains from children. Choose a table with a large surface area to allow room for your child's creativity and to keep all his materials within easy reach.
If your children's chair table is used for meals or snacks, choose a low table, for example, at your child's height, so that you can do what the grown-ups do. A more convivial approach for his best meals.
For play, the round table is ideal to install multiple chairs to share a moment with friends. Children's set chairs are available to harmonise their creative space.
The size of your child should also be taken into account when choosing a table or chair. Choosing the right size will ensure that your child sits well and is comfortable.
The seat of a child's chair should, in general, correspond to your child's height.
A good seat for your child means that the legs are positioned at 90°. If your child's back bends when sitting on the table and chair, the seat is too high for him/her. On the other hand, if your child's knees are too high when seated, then the seat is too low.
The decoration of the room should be in order.
For your child's room, you can choose original children's tables and chairs. If the style of the room is fairly neutral and sober, have fun with the furniture and decorative elements. If you want to integrate the children's table into the design of your living spaces, opt for a more design-oriented and neutral product such as natural wood furniture. A wooden table is ideal for blending in with any home environment and why not with wooden stools. A discreet design will blend in perfectly with the decor.
In a Scandinavian atmosphere, the wooden table is perfect. Depending on the combination, a retro atmosphere can also emerge in the room.
You can also delimit the children's area from the adult area in your communal areas. To do this, opt for different designs in the two areas. Use a carpet to delimit the area and you're done.
The size of the predefined space should also influence your choice of table or desk for your child. If you have limited space, choose a children's table with a folding/unfolding option. This way, you can unfold the children's table to your liking and when you no longer need it, save space by folding it again.
If you need storage for your toddler's things, choose a table with drawers or storage blocks to maximise space. This type of alternative will encourage your child to be more organised and tidy.
Finally, make sure the legs of your children's chairs are non-slip. This will allow you to place your children's chair table on any surface, slippery or not. For example, non-slip legs are perfect for installation on wooden floors.
The age of your little one comes into play. You will not choose the same model for your 8 year old as for your 2 year old.
From 18 months onwards, as soon as your toddler starts to move around on his own, you can opt for mini formats of a children's table with chairs. This type of format will encourage your child to sit up independently and create his first drawings.
Tables and chairs should be adapted to the age of your child so that they can be used for years to come and why not for the little brother or sister who will follow.
When your children are small, choose round tables and chairs or those with rounded corners. These features will ensure that your children do not hit their heads on the edges of the table.
The children's table must meet certain safety standards. Check that the furniture complies with these standards in order to ensure that it is suitable for your child. For the children's room, choose a children's table that complies with French and European standards. This type of furniture is designed to ensure that your children do not hurt themselves, bump into each other or get their fingers caught.
To achieve this, children's tables are made in different ways with, for example, rounded corners or finishes with extra safety to prevent any worries.
Your child's table should be solid, stable and robust.
Some tables have non-slip feet. If the floor is slippery, the anti-slip pads allow you to install a table on it.
We also encourage you to choose eco-friendly children's tables. A piece of furniture made from environmentally friendly materials guarantees a durable, long-lasting and easy-to-clean support. It is important to choose a children's table made from healthy materials that will not affect the health of your baby and later your older child.
Durable materials guarantee a certain quality of the surface on which your child will make their best creations and crafts or enjoy their favourite meals. Therefore, good quality also means easy care. Therefore, for the children's table, a sponge or a cloth with soapy water will suffice to clean the surface of your children's table. If the material used is specific, use specialised products. However, once again, pay attention to the design of the products. Do not choose products that are too aggressive and can damage your child's environment.
The children's table requires different characteristics in its choice for your child. Your intended use will determine the model and surface suitable for your use. The size of your child and the size of the room will influence the height of the stand and the features that can be offered. Similarly, the age of your child will determine the type of product you choose. Finally, compliance with safety standards is very important for your child's table. Durable, environmentally friendly, solid and stable products are essential for your child's use. You will find on our website furniture (stools, desks or tables in white or coloured wood) combining practicality, design and quality.
