One of the many perks of being a homeowner is the opportunity to decorate the various rooms of the home to fit the style and likes of the homeowner and the family members that live there. With that said, decorating a child’s room is probably one of the rooms a person can really have fun with and get creative. Below are a few tips and things to consider when decorating this room.
Purchase The Furniture From A Store
Visit a homeware store to search for the larger pieces of furniture (such as the bed and dresser). This will give you a visual regarding how the pieces of furniture will fit inside the room. From there, they can be moved around and adjusted to fit the theme of the décor.
Choose A Theme
It is important to remember that a child will get bigger over time, so choose a theme that will not require the room to be changed in a year or two. This can be easily done by choosing furniture that is flexible. For example, if a child is interested in racing, don’t pick out a bed in the shape of a race car. Instead, choose a twin or queen-size bed and purchase a comforter that has race cars on it, as well as other race car accessories, and place them in the room to tie the theme together.
Let The Child Have A Say In The Décor
Allow the child to help make certain decisions when it comes to their room. After all, it is their room and they will be spending much time in there while playing and sleeping. Allowing them to use their creativity may entice them in keeping their room clean.
Use Wall Decals
Wall decals are a great and inexpensive way to decorate a child’s room with various themes they are interested in, but without spending a lot of money. Decals can also be removed rather easily and will not leave a mark on the walls. Decals come in a variety of different designs, and range in age from newborn to teen years.
Allow Enough Room For Playtime
A child’s room should have plenty of space for them to play in comfortably. If their room is too small to accommodate this, consider placing their toys in the loft area or another space where the child can easily get to their toys. There are also various organizing tools one can purchase to make their space livable.
Use Vertical Space
The walls of the room can be used for so much more than just décor. Hanging numerous shelves to hold certain toys and accessories can be very helpful when trying to organize items. These shelves can be hung on top of one another, allowing for much room and storage.
Choose Paint That Is Neutral
Neutral paint colors will allow for various décor choices and do not require changing it once the child outgrows their current interests. When choosing paint colors, keep in mind to choose ones that are light and bright.
A child’s bedroom should be a place where they feel comfortable spending a lot of time there. It should be fun, as well as functional. Let the child have a say in their room by giving them choices and having them pick different aspects that will go in their room.
