    Designing the Right Daycare Furniture

    The type of custom daycare furniture you need depends on the children’s age groups, their needs, the accommodation size, and the daycare curriculum. For instance, some lessons may require the children to sit at a desk while others may engage them with an activity table or a play structure.

    Your daycare furniture should be both functional and stylish. When making your decision, think about usage, safety, durability, and design.

    Storage and Shelves

    Shelves play an essential role in keeping a daycare organized. They provide ample storage for toys, games, and books that helps get rid of clutter. Shelving is also a great safety measure as it can help keep dangerous items out of reach for children. Also, children get bored of toys very quickly so having some toys hidden away in a cabinet will make your job a lot easier. You can rotate the toys seasonally, so the children feel as if they have new toys to play with.

    Aside from shelves, a daycare should also include individual lockers for the children to store their personal belongings. The lockers generally have three separate compartments. The top shelf is for backpacks, the middle section is for coats, and the bottom section is for shoes.

    Table and Chairs

    Tables and chairs are an integral part of daycare centers. The benefits of having tables and chairs in a daycare center are endless. They teach children discipline and provide them with an interactive space to learn and grow together. Table and chairs also promote healthy eating habits and sitting in a good posture while working. Daycare tables and chairs are typically colorful, making them attractive to children.

    Aside from mealtime activities, tables also provide a space for storytime sessions, art and craft, and staff rotations during breaks.

    There are various types of materials that can be used to build your custom tables and chairs for Daycare, few of the common ones being wood, plastic, metal, and fabric.

    Cubbies & Coat Hangers

    Cubbies and coat hangers are the primary requirements of a Daycare. This is where the kids take off their heavy jackets, boots, and bags to ease down. The built-in bench allows them to take a breather while they untie their shoes. Cubbies also offer individual storage space to every child to store their personal belongings safely. Melio Custom Cabinets custom-build cubbies and coat hangers to include storage spaces according to your needs.

    Changing Tables

    The main purpose of a changing table is to change diapers. A well-designed changing table should have enough storage space for clean diapers, baby wipes, baby powders, ointments, and extra clothes. Building a custom changing table allows you to decide on a comfortable height for yourself so you don’t have to bend over while changing.

    The most popular changing table designs include a custom built dresser with drawers and a built-in changing topper. You can also opt for a closed cabinet changing table, which keeps the changing pad and all baby supplies hidden.

    Depending on how much space you have, you may want to consider a folding changing table that can be pulled down when needed as opposed to a free-standing one.

    Choosing the Right Material

    Solid hardwood doors in maple, oak, or cherry are commonly used for stained doors where the wood grain’s natural beauty is enhanced and protected by a professionally applied finish. Wood doors are strong and durable, and scratches or dents can be repaired with sanding and a coat of matching stain.

    Stained wood doors are a great choice for homeowners wanting classic-looking cabinetry that shows off both the beauty and the sturdiness of hardwood doors.

    MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard is a manufactured wood product that combines wood fibers with wax and resin. MDF is denser than hardwood and offers a much smoother finish with no graining. This makes MDF an ideal material for making painted cabinet doors. Due to its density and consistent structure, MDF can be machined using high-speed CNC cutting tools. These tools help create a variety of different 3-D profiles which are perfect for cabinet doors.

    MDF, as a material, is not waterproof. However, by painting its surface, MDF becomes highly water-resistant which makes it ideal for high humidity places like bathrooms or kitchens. It’s also a favorite for cottages as its durability helps keep it intact during the hot and humid summers.

    Acrylic is a non-toxic finish that gives a perfectly smooth texture and a high-gloss appearance to your space. Acrylic doors are made by applying sheets of acrylic over medium-density fiberboard (MDF), covering it with a protective layer, and sealing at the edges.

    This high-quality synthetic material comes in a perfect mirror-like finish that’s shatter and chip resistant. Available in a wide range of colors, acrylic finish gives a resplendent appearance to your home.

    Thermofoil cabinets are cost-effective, easy to care for, and easy to maintain. They are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Thermofoil cabinets are made using a flexible vinyl material that is applied by heating the vinyl and molding it over medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

    Thermofoil cabinets are prized as ideal for kitchen or bathroom cabinets because of their superior moisture resistance. Their laminate surface is stain-resistant and easy to clean. The laminate also ensures the cabinet is resistant to chips and cracks, even in high humidity environments.
