As children grow to become kids, then tweens, then teens, they gradually become more interested in their appearance, making a mirror a must. To incorporate mirrors in an age-appropriate but designer-caliber way, it's smart to choose decorative styles that are also large enough in size to be used for getting ready for school.
Designer Susie Fougerousse suggests: "Every child's room should be equipped with a sturdy bookshelf for displaying treasures, books, pictures and more. Selecting a basic style in a neutral color will allow the parents maximum versatility for use over the long term. As the child grows, the uses and consequently the look of the shelf will naturally adapt to the child's changing needs."
