Kids need a creative and comfortable space to be around when they grow up. It’s easy to get carried away with room decor options that suit a toddler when you visit home decor stores. Keep in mind that your child’s growth spurt will kick in eventually, and they might grow out of their room quicker than you imagined. Pick furniture that matches the transition – instead of your kid living in a nursery-environment till adolescence. Here are a few ideas for decorating your kid’s room:
Because let’s face it – kids will be kids. Doing up their rooms in a serious, monochromatic or formal manner will leave them feeling bored and left out of their own rooms. Integrate some fun elements like chalkboard painted wardrobes where they can doodle or colourful playing blocks which can be rearranged and put away when not required. Furlenco’s kids packages include all of these and more!
Storage is as important for your children as it is for you. Toys, books and clothes all need to fit into one place and be organised so that your kids can find everyday items easily. Invest in beds with storage underneath. Bunk beds with folding study tables below are also handy, especially if you are looking at saving space.
Gender – fluid colours
Quoting Bobby Berk from one of our favourite shows, Queer Eye, a room does not have to be decorated according to gender. Boys don’t always need blue rooms, and girls, pink. Use warm and earthy colours to set a neutral tone, or better yet, make your kid’s room the colour they feel happiest with!
Involve your kids
Make your kids a part of the decorating process as much as you are into it. Truly understand what they would like in their personal space. Whether it’s a sporty, a superhero or a ballerina theme. Make them meet you halfway when it comes to deciding the practicality of the choices they make. Your kid’s room has to reflect their personalities, but also it shouldn’t be a difficult task to gradually make changes when they grow up.
Choose furniture wisely
While investing in a bed or a wardrobe for your children’s rooms, select smart options. Don’t choose a smaller sized bed or closet because your kids are small at that time. Not only do kids like being treated as adults, but doing this will also save you another trip to the store when your children become taller and need more closet space for all their clothes.
It’s very easy to go wrong with decorating kids’ rooms by falling into stereotypes, or assuming that you know best. But it’s also easy to get it right, keeping the above tips in mind.
