Ideally the location of a child’s bedroom should be close to the master bedroom of the house. This allows for easy surveillance of children. Kids have a unique quality in them – imagination and this should be reflected in the child’s bedroom design. Their curiosity also sits next to their imagination so a good idea is to introduce furniture.
This would create a lot of niche spaces for them to explore. Children rooms require furniture such as bunk beds, writing tables, beds with lot of storage spaces above or below can be designed. It’s a good idea to have some pieces of furniture as movable types which can also be used as a toy. A great idea is to have furniture in the shape of cartoon characters.
Many parents go color crazy when selecting a color scheme for their child’s room. Ideally the use of basic colors is best suited for this type of space. Because of the fact that the human brain at tender ages is under development, use of complex shades may not be a suitable idea.
A smart floor pattern can also serve a great way to stimulate adventurous energy in a child. The basics of kids’ decor which really include walls, floors and windows can last for several years without having to make major changes. Making a few simple adjustments to the decor as your baby grows keeps the room fresh.
For older children inventing fun Kid’s Bedroom Themes can really be a lot of fun! This way the children themselves can pick their own theme, and feel they have contributed to their own room décor. This allows them to feel more responsible for “their room”. There are many choices of theme items, such as bedding, lamps, children rugs, wall decor, wallpaper, border and murals, drawer knobs, child furniture etc.
Once you’ve established a set of guidelines then invite the children to share their thoughts on their dream rooms. Remember to inform then that they cannot get everything they desire but they can have what the budget allows for. Ask kids about: their favourite colours, favourite activities, favourite objects etc. From this you can create a theme that they are sure to approve!
When it comes to designing children rooms many parents become fearful of the expenses. However, once themes have been selected the job can be done easily and economically. Parents can accumulate cheap materials that reflect the theme of a room. A selection of wallpaper or borders, paintings or murals, stencils, and posters or framed prints can be used as the decorative materials.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges in decorating a child’s room is that the room will need to grow as does the child. A clever way to get value for money is to invest in classic furniture. This may mean staying away from characters which come and go with the times.
