4. Think Twice Before Buying Mini
Child-size pieces, such as miniature Louis Ghost chairs and vintage school desks, are charming additions to a play area, but keep in mind that those pieces have a shelf life and will either have to be stored or sold once your children outgrow them. If you’re looking for furniture with a bit more endurance, consider an adjustable-height table or a long floating shelf used as a desk that can be raised as needed.
