6 tips to create your baby’s room as you always wanted

Today we want to give you some advice that could be useful in decorating a new room for your child.

Let’s get started!

  1. Try to have an idea of what you need before your baby is born:

It’s very important to know what you will need after your baby’s birth.  Leave nothing to chance and be prepared!

  1. Choose for your baby the right room of the house, where he will be able to play, to sleep and to dream.

Think in your home in a way you never did before.  Maybe your bedroom could be perfect  for your child. Expand your mind!

  1. Do you really have always to tidy your baby’s room up? Yes, you do!

To have an organized room is crucial in the first phases of your life as a mom. Keeping the room organized will help you to accustomed to your new routine.

  1. Do you have to optimize the spaces of the room? With the right furniture it will be easier than you thought.  Sometimes furniture can take up a lot of space. To avoid that, use multi-functional furniture.

NB: Figure out how much storage space you’ll need… then put in more. Almost without fail, parents underestimate the amount of stuff they’ll acquire.

  1. White walls makes the room bigger. Use light colors!

In a small space, everything counts. Light and bright walls are more reflective, making a space feel open and airy, which helps maximize the effect created by natural light. Dark colors, on the other hand, tend to absorb light, making a room look smaller.

  1. Pay attention to points of light. They shall be chosen considering the function of the room.

Takta team knows all these tips. We can help you in creating your baby’s room.

40th TAKTA anniversary!!

2018 is a special year for our team and our label because it is our 40th birthday. 40 years in which we changed a lot. This is why we would like to tell you our nice story.

We began our work in the sixties with cane, wood and plastic cots. Constantino Calatayud was  the owner of the company. At that time, the company wasn’t only focused on producing children and baby furniture; in fact our core business was the production of  home and generic furniture.

Some years later, Constantino’s two sons, Ángel and Vicente, took the control of the company. In 2010, they thought that , keeping up with what his father started, was a good idea and for this reason they created with enthusiasm the first collection of baby and children furniture called KUADROS. This collection was simple but very elegant.

The good acceptance that this first collection had, pushed the two brothers to create new collections.

In 2011, Mareta collection was created; it is caracterized by  straight lines and white lacquer.

Then, in 2014, they gave birth to Isabela that is one of our most elegant collections. It combines style, beauty and functionality.

A year later,  they produced Marina and Paola.

Marina is our most customizable collection because it has a wide range of handles available in different colours that each customer can combine with the cot he like the most.

Paola is a sweet collection with simple lines that create a very elegant space for your baby.

In 2015, CLS collection was launch onto the market. It is our most high-level collection and it is characterised by straight lines,  finished in white lacquer and  double bunk beds which are easily transformed in two little beds.

In the same year, they also create Geometric collection, a modern collection that includes a large range of cots and trundle beds.

 

In TAKTA we are always thinking about how to make our products better and, by following this guide line, this year we created a mini cots collection made entirely by aluminium.  These cots are easily transportable and demountable.

Cuna B-SIDE

 

 

In 2016, Nature arrived; it is a collection that looks back to our origins. It has straight and simple lines and combines the white colour and the natural colour of the wood. This contrast makes the baby space, a calm  and peaceful space.

Last year, we created the Nature White version that maintains the essence of nature collection but with a more functional design.

Our story finishes with Martina collection.  The procuction began last year and in it, we put all our kindness. It is one of our most special collection and  it is based in María Montessori’s philosophy; all the furniture are created to encourage the baby self-development.

These are all our collections that you can see in more details at https://takatatuprimermueble.com/web/colecciones-mobiliario-infantil-juvenil/

Today we have the same excitement that we had when we created  our first collection. As always, we want the best for yours children and we constanty think about their security . This is the reason why our furniture comply with the CEE law.

Finally, but not less important, we want to appreciate your trust in our team.

Thank you for the first 40 years with us and thank you for all those years that will come!

 

HAPPY 40TH BIRHTDAY!!

 

 

 

ADVICE FOR SUMMER

Finally, Summer is here!!

What are you going to do for these holidays? Are you going to the sea or to the mountain? Whatever you do, if you have children, there are some advice we want  to give you.

Here below, you will find a guideline in which we gathered special tips in order to help you living a summer without bed surprises:

 

  1. One of the most important things when you go out with children is to put them cream. Nevertheless, pay attention because creams are not identical. The SPF must be 50+. Doctors recommend putting  the cream thirty minutes before going out. Moreover, if you and your child are going to stay  for a long time to the beach or to the mountain, the cream has to be applied each hour.
  2. Besides the cream, it’s also important to look for shaded areas in order to protect babies from the sunrays. If you are going to the beach, you would better to take an umbrella!
  3. It’s also important to cover babies’ heads with a cap or a headscarf.
  4. You better avoid hours between 12h and 17h because these are the hours in which the sun is hotter.
  5. Maintain children well hydrated. Babies are more vulnerable to dehydration than adults. That is why you have to take for your children special precautions in summer.
  6. Take care of babies’ diet. Like adults, babies lose their appetite in summer because of the warmth. Don’t worry, and give them more liquids.
  7. Heat strokes, goodbye.  To avoid heat strokes, you must protect babies from the direct sunrays, by covering their heads, by avoiding the hottest hours and by giving them water and fresh dishes.

 

We hope these advice could help you to spend nice holidays with your children and to enjoy your summer.

MARTINA COLLECTION

Finally we can show you some pictures of our new  MARTINA COLLECTION, which is based in MARIA MONTESSORI’S philosophy.

The name Martina starts with the letter M-A.R as Maria, so we thought that was a good idea that this collection would have part of her name. Moreover, the name Martina is of latin origin and it indicates a woman who love to learn new things about the world; it is dedicated to Mars God, it is associated to observer women who pay attention to all that surround them;  These characteristics are perfectly related to Maria Montessori method that now we are going to explain you.

A hundred years ago, Dr. Montessori (1870 – 1952) conceived a new educational method based on stimulation and respect. Supplementing this method with her training in medicine, psychology and anthropology, Maria Montessori developed a brand new educational philosophy based on children real observation.

 

Maria Montessori said that: “Children, with their high physical and intellectual potential, are a miracle in front of us. This fact must be transmitted to all the parents, teachers and people interested in children because education from the beginning could truly change the present and the future of our society. We have to keep in mind that the development of human potential is not determined by us. We can only serve the development of the child, because this is done in a space where there are laws that govern the functioning of each human being and each development must be in harmony with the world around us and with the entire universe. ”

To create a Montessori space, we have to encourage the self-learning and the growth of the child. In these spaces, social, emotional and intellectual aspects have a primary role to respond to the needs of order and security. The characteristics of this “Prepared Environment” allow the child to learn without the permanent assistance and supervision of an adult.

The design of these environments is based on the fundamentals of simplicity, beauty and order. These space are thought to be bright and warm.

Our Montessori furniture is designed to allow the child to be independent. Materials and  furniture are lower and “child-friendly” in order that the kids could reach them easier.

As you can see in this first picture, all the furniture are lower, much more than the usual. Kids can take their clothes, toys or even go to bed alone without the help of their parents.

Our collection is different from all the others based on Montessori’s method because we wanted to combine the natural wood color with pastel colors in order that you could choose the combination you like the most. You can choose between 7 different colors: natural wood, white, roewood, nude blue, elegant grey, mint green and black.

Not all the products of this collection are based in Montessori method but all the collection has the same guiding line which is the wood natural colour.

Here you have an example:

In this picture you can see that we have also created a cot, a wardrobe and a chest of drawer higher than the normal Montessori furniture. We make it for those mums that prefer conventional furniture which are better adapted to the actual market. The cot can also be with our co-sleeping system that allows the baby to feel safe next to his mum.

In this second picture, you can see how our Green mint perfectly matches with wood natural colour.  Is it Isn’t it lovely?

Tell us what you think in the space at the bottom of the page. Your opinion is important to us!

 

At the end we want to share with you one of the best quotes of the Dr. María Montessori.

 

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”

Children furniture. Organize and distribute bedroom’s space in the best way

When children bedroom is concerned, the most important is that the bedroom is large and practical. That is why when we are going to acquire our children furniture; we have to take into account two points.

The measure of the bedroom does not matter if we do not know how to use the space. Here, children furniture play an important role.

Furniture for children’s room (from 0 to 3 years)

Muebles infantiles

During this time, the main furniture is the cot. Nevertheless, in the first months the most practical solution is that the baby sleep in a mini cot in their parent bedroom. Once this stage has passed, babies will sleep in a cot in their rooms.

We can choose between lots of cots according to the space we have. We can decide between a classical cot (60×120) and a cot bed (70×140). The last one is very practical because children can use it during next years.

Storage furniture for children is indispensable in children rooms. Chest of drawers are a good option for bedrooms but if we want to take advantage of the room space, we recommend you a chiffonier. The chiffonier is longer than the chest of drawers and it is tighter but it has more drawers than the chest of drawers.

Wardrobes are also necessaries in case we do not have a built-in wardrobe in the babies’ bedrooms.

Furniture for children’s bedroom (since 3 years)

Muebles infantiles

In this new period, our children have many changes and we have to adapt their bedroom to their new routines and activities.

They will not need a cot; they will need a new bed instead. We have many options like a basic bed, a bunk bed or a trundle bed. The last one, it serves us to storage things like clothes or toys. Depending of what we need, we will choose the bed that will fit in the children bedroom.

The children will need a desk and shelves in addition to storage furniture like wardrobes and chest of drawers because they will help us to organize and save more space of the bedroom.

When we organize our children bedrooms, we have to take into account that it has to be spacious because in three years, their bedrooms will be the place where our children will study and they will need to be comfortable.

Modern cots for babies’ advantages

Normally, when it is time to do the first purchases for the new born, future parent relatives and friends offer them furniture and items for babies that they have used before. Taking into account that new parents have to buy many things and there is a big economic outlay, it is not a bad idea but we have to differentiate between the items that can be reused and which cannot be reused. Among those that must be new are the cots. Modern cots for babies are the best option.

Why a modern and new cot is the best option?

Baby cotsCots are the place where the new born will be most of the time during their first months and years. This is why we have to choose a high-quality cot. At first sight, an old cot may seem acceptable for the baby. However, we must take into account that all the cots must be under the current European security legislation.

This legislation is created to ensure that cots are manufactured with quality materials and all its structure and characteristics are secure for babies.
For example, paint must not be toxic or bars of the cot must be separated in order that the baby cannot go out or be trapped between them.
These are some points that do not come to our mind at first, but they are of crucial importance for babies.
A modern cot will be always more practical than an old cot, since it counts with more benefits.
For example, having wheels for a cot it is very important because we can move our babies inside their cots to other rooms to supervise them.

Minicunas PuzzleMoreover, many modern cots are convertible nowadays.

There are various types of convertible cots like the mini cots, which are converted into a travel cot. They are very practical to go on holidays or to go to a relative house.
In addition, convertible cots are converted into beds.
We must take into account this option because we will be buying the future bed for our son or daughter and it will be a bed that we can be used for a decade.

As we said at first, maybe we can reuse some of our relatives items for our babies, but without doubt, we must acquire a new cot because we will be sure that we are choosing the best cot.
