Designing kids’ room can be fun, but challenging as well. The furniture and fixtures used ought to be of good quality and are hence bound to be expensive and renovation is not something that can be afforded frequently. Here are a few things to know when looking for kids’ room decorating ideas:
a) Choosing a theme: Before you decide to decorate, you will have to decide if the room will have to accommodate and adapt to your child’s changing needs or whether it should remain a baby’s room for some time. For instance, pink is a favorite color among girls, but think twice before you go overboard on the theme. Girls in their teens tend to hate pink, although this may have been their favorite when they were kids. The same color turns their favorite again when they grow up.
b) Choose a concept: Do you prefer a fairy-like theme or would you like to choose from an ultramodern concept? The idea with the former theme is that it may take you to a new place and world though it may have nothing to do with the interior of the rest of the house. As for the minimalistic design, it makes a lot of sense because you can choose furniture that grows with the child. Besides, a child may find it embarrassing to be associated with a theme once she or he grows up.
c) Add a family heirloom to the room: Adding a family heirloom to the kids’ room helps the child to be associated with the family and its past. It provides a vital link for the child, especially when you can talk about it someday. This can be done even if the room follows a different theme.
d) Create a lot of space: Built in cabinets and other functional furniture help to create space for the child to play. These storage shelves also teach the child to arrange things well and keep clutter away. Similarly separate the places of study and games. A proper demarcation helps the child to focus on the job at hand.
e) Set a budget: Do some homework on the expenses to set a realistic budget. Irrespective of the amount that you spend on the room, children will grow out of them very soon. Besides, they’re more than likely to be bored of it.
These are just some of the things to keep in mind when decorating your kids’ room.
