This being the case, it’s advisable to limit the sounds that come from outside and allow just the right ambiance for proper sleep. If you have a way of insulating the bedroom from outside noise, go for it. BabyHood advises that wood and even a carpet may also help to counter bouncing sounds.
Go Natural; It will help
Nature inspires nearly everything, and good sleep for your kid comes from a natural simulation. Choose photography of natural child-friendly sites. This stimulates their brain to be keen on detail which is good for learning. Ensure that they safely sit on the wall. The experimental nature of children may have them bringing the photographs down.
Cables and Chords
Neatness in your kid’s room involves ensuring that no loose cables and chords lay around. Remember they will also be using this space for play and you don’t want them tripping over cables and chords. Work with a professional to safely tuck away all chords, preferably within along the walls.
It also helps to caution them and train them on how to handle loose cords and cables within their room. This adds to the safety measures you have put in place

Avoid slippery floors at all costs. They are not only dangerous to your kid but also to other residents of your house. This, therefore, requires that you carefully consider appropriate floor materials for your kid’s room. It is inevitable that as they learn and play, there will be spillage. How it is handled determines the outcome.
Safe Lighting and electrical appliances
Avoid table lights for your kid’s bedroom. They will probably not be as careful in handling them, posing grave danger. Instead, have ceiling or wall lights tightly fixed. By all means, ensure that the lights are out of reach, especially of your boys may want to experiment more on the source of light.
Electrical appliances such as computers should also be firmly fixed. If you choose to have them on a table, make sure they aren’t prone to easy falls. Kids aren’t too careful with gadgets, even when they are meant to add some little happiness to their lives. Ensure that all electrical gadgets observe basic safety rules.
