What is a necessity for the space? A bed with storage? Would they prefer an upholstered bed versus a metal or wood structured bed? Maybe even a canopy? All of these considerations affect the price point for the bed. This is a great piece to put in a solid investment because the bed may last the entirety of their childhood, and possibly become the bed for the guest room once they leave the house!
BEDDING + PILLOWS
With bedding, there are so many choices! Just on material alone, there is percale, sateen, linen, bamboo, even silk! Going with easy to wash options for kids is always a great choice. If you love light and white bedding like we do, remember that you can always bleach clean white bedding, and you can't with other colors.
Layers also play a factor in the overall price - do you include a duvet cover, blanket, and quilt, with a throw blanket on top for good measure? That's all personal preference and how much your kids (or your guests) love making their beds every day - or not!
Same goes with the pillows - are the decorative pillows handprinted individually or sent through a factory assembly line? Are they limited run releases or color releases for a specific season, or something you can buy at any time? Are the pillow inserts polyester filled or down filled? All of these factors can change the pricing dramatically. Remember that this is what will most likely change the most often in a kid's room because of personal preference and growing up, so we recommend not being too precious about the decorative pillows and bedding.
Lighting has a huge range because we see handblown, custom pendants and chandeliers made, and we see more mass-manufactured lamps as well. There is definitely a balance between functional use and choosing a lighting fixture because it's just the most beautiful piece of art you've ever seen and you want that to be a focal point in a space. Guest rooms are a great space to try a funky or different chandelier that you love, or fun lamps in an interesting shape or color. Same goes for the kids, but if you want the space to grow with them with classic pieces, go for funky or fun pieces in the bedding and artwork that can easily change.
NIGHTSTANDS + DRESSER
The price heavily affects the material it is made of. Is marble, hardwood lumber, or welded metal involved in the pieces you choose? Are you choosing nightstands and dressers with soft close storage? What type of hardware is being used for both pieces? Raw material costs, extra material needed for storage, and the extra labor all contribute to the price range listed above. And again, type of construction and overall quality of that construction are a deciding factor.
ART & ACCESSORIES
It doesn't take a lot to accessorize these spaces, but the quality of the pieces chosen affect costs a lot. Craftsmanship and artisanal work takes much more time, material, and creativity, and prices can reflect that. How large are these art pieces and/or accessories? Are you purchasing from a vintage source or reusing something you already own in a new way? Can you take your children's artwork or create some artwork yourself, and get them professionally framed? As with many categories, you must decide what takes priority for you in determining what budget makes sense for your style sensibility.
