Choosing Which Nursery Pouf Is Right For You
There’s so much potential for nursery pouf ottomans that you may be wondering how you can narrow down your search to find your perfect pouf. Well, just think through these key areas, and you’ll be well on your way to finding the perfect pouf for your nursery.
Purpose: Poufs have many purposes, from being decorative accents to practical additions. With nurseries in particular, you may just have it there as a fun textile for your little one to touch, or you may use it as a spare seat for any of the other people in the room. You can even find other uses, like using it as a side table or as a footrest by your rocker. Regardless, you should determine early on what function(s) you want your nursery ottoman pouf to have.
Size, Shape, and Structure: After you’ve determined your pouf’s purpose(s), you need to focus on the size, shape, and structure of the pouf. When it comes to size, consider how wide and tall you need it to be and what’s suitable for the kid(s). Shape can be determined by what other shapes you include in the room, or if you want to add in a unique shape, this is a good way to add in that flair. Round nursery ottomans in particular can be handy in nurseries, because the soft corners give off a more gentle air than rigid square poufs. Finally, the structure is how dense it is, and what purposes it can fulfill. If your kid likes sinking into a seat, then you’ll want something more plush and comfortable as opposed to a more solid structure you would use for a side table.
Fabric/Material: Since you’re looking for a pouf for a young child’s room, the fabric and material is something you must think about. Choose a material that is not only comfortable to touch, but also durable and easy to clean. Even if you plan on using a pouf indoors, you may want to look at outdoor poufs, since they are quite durable.
Pattern: You can go as youthful or as sophisticated as you want with your nursery pouf’s pattern. Some kids poufs will be solid in color, but they’ll include unique textures that are pleasing to touch and show off a design with those layers. Others will use various colors to create patterns with geometric shapes, lines, color blocking, and other styles. This is your chance to find a pattern that fits with your personal style and the heart of your child.
Color: Pattern isn’t the only factor in determining your nursery ottoman pouf’s style. For youthful kids rooms and nursery poufs, you can use bright pinks and blues, or you can go subtle with muted tones. The tone of the color is just as important as the color itself, since the vibrancy of the color impacts the overall mood of the item. So choose colors that you like and find them in tones that create the right mood.
