Kids will spend a considerable amount of time in their bedrooms so it is important that their rooms are designed in such a way that will prove to be beneficial for them. Aside from motivating them to clean up after themselves, their bedrooms are the best places for them to learn and recuperate. However, some parents are unsure of how to design their child’s bedroom so without further ado, here are some tips for creating your child’s ideal bedroom.
Colors play a large part in how a room turns out so make sure you pick the right one. Hues of blue are said to promote relaxation so you may use sky blue or lavender for your child’s bedroom. You must choose a color that is soft enough for a child but isn’t too reminiscent of infancy. After all, your kids will grow up faster than you think. You may use prints to give the room some depth, but keep the color scheme in mind at all times. You don’t have to stick to one color for the entire room and you’re free to mix and match what you think works or what your child might want. The same goes for window treatments. If you’re going to use curtains or blinds, make sure the colors are at least complementary. You could even opt to use window film if you don’t want to use traditional window treatments but make sure that the film you choose keeps heat out.
Toys & Decoration
Don’t skimp on the toys. You can use toys as accent pieces or décor and help your child’s bedroom look cheerful while helping them develop their minds. Have toys all over the room in an organized fashion and don’t forget to include some educational toys along with the trucks and dolls. Doing so could even assist with making your child associate learning with leisure.
If your child is of an age where he or she has strong opinions regarding what they like, try to choose the furniture yourself. That car bed might seem like a good idea now but your son won’t think so in a few years when he gets older and taller. Well-picked furniture can also be reused around the house when your child moves out or goes away to college. You don’t have to get boring pieces but make sure they’re not cartoon-themed, either.
Use appropriate fabrics for the bedding and curtains. This isn’t limited to color and pattern but texture as well. Mix and match however you see fit and since they’re temporary, you can give in to your child’s requests for matching Spiderman or Sesame Street bedding and curtains.
Use the ceiling to your advantage. Create a galaxy or have someone paint it to give your child something nice to look at before going to sleep. If you’re lucky, they’ll put themselves to bed before you do.
With a nice compromise between you and your little one, you can give them the bedroom they’ve always dreamed of.
