Decorating your daughter’s or son’s bedroom is as important as decorating all other areas in your home Therefore, it is essential to give it maximum attention and it all starts with planning. Moreover, unlike other rooms, when decorating a child’s bedroom, it is necessary to think through the entire process carefully because children grow very fast and their interests keep changing along the way. As such, the items that suit and please a toddler will not suit an eight year old. Additionally, what will happen when the child grows into teenage hood? Do you plan on renovating the room at each developmental stage of your child? I believe the answer is NO because redesigning can be quite expensive and time consuming. Therefore, here are a few tips that you must consider when decorating.
First, be cautious when picking the decorating schemes. Most parents tend to overdo the décor in the nursery by either placing too many posters with cartoon characters or fluffy items. The problem is that your child will not remain a toddler forever. Thus, it is advisable to go for neutral walls and floors and accessories that can be removed if your child requires something new.
When it comes to furniture, prioritize the element of storage. It is, therefore, advisable to pick furniture that offer dual purposes such as beds that feature storage drawers. Also, include a desk as your child gets older because they will need a conducive environment to complete their homework. Most importantly, remember to place baskets or shelves to hold all your child’s toys. The secret is to have adequate storage to prevent the room from getting messy and looking all cramped.
Finally, though it is necessary to think of functionality when decorating your kid’s bedroom, don’t forget to add the element of fun. Thus, you can add things like painting brushes or drawing books.
