on a child's world
Children delight in spaces tailored to their size and imagination, which is why walk-in closets become little homes, stairs become vehicles and laundry chutes act as mysterious portals. It's nice to foster imagination, but how to do it without sacrificing storage, your carpeting and the child's safety.
Try an interior window. A single "window" cut into one wall of a child's bedroom provides a whimsical way for kids to interact with the outide world from within their rooms and enjoy a sense of being able to control their own privacy. Engrossed in play or deep in sleep, you can check on the little ones without start-ling or interrupting them.
From the outside, this simple feature might give the imprssion of a cabinet, allowing you to more easily integrate the window into your home' overall decor.
