Your child will be using her room when she is most vulnerable – when she is asleep – and when she's most energetic – when she is at play. To keep her safe in all these circumstances, make sure that the furniture you choose is sturdy: look for toy boxes with hinges that stay open and won't fall on little fingers; look for rounded edges on items like night stands, desks, and dressers, so that chances of her cutting herself if she bumps her head are minimized.
For younger children, put breakable or small decorative accessories well out of reach, and avoid lamps and other items that children could pull down onto themselves. In terms of bedding and other textiles, make sure that they are flame-retardant – and for your ease, it probably is a good idea for them to be stain-resistant as well!
