Ask him to join you when you do your shopping and let him choose. If you prefer to shop online, show him the online furniture sops and click on the pictures so he can select.

You also need a wardrobe or dresser for his clothes. Other accessories that he may need are a shoe rack, storage boxes or shelves for his toys, a small desk and a chair.
Make sure the furniture is safe with no sharp edges and jagged ends. Furniture must not be too tall as well so he will not have a hard time getting things. Cabinets must be 2 – 3 inches taller than your child’s height.
Provide him shelves for his books and other knick-knacks. He would also need a table lamp for reading. Furniture with more storage spaces is a must for your child’s bedroom.
