Decorating kids’ bedrooms can be quite a challenge considering that you’ll have to change the rooms as the kids grow. To ensure that your children’s bedrooms won’t end up with decorations and styles that your children will quickly outgrow, follow these basic design tips.
Focus on the walls
Pick a neutral color for the bedroom walls that will effectively serve as a black canvas for all the decorative pieces and the ever-changing tastes of the room’s occupants. In case you’re tempted to introduce a pattern, limit your decoration to only one wall or the ceiling. Alternatively, do a bit of wallpaper, but make sure the motif is gentle so it doesn’t dominate the entire bedroom.
Create adequate storage space
A well-organized bedroom depends on how well you manage clutter and other essentials. When it comes to kids’ bedroom, storage is of paramount importance. You can look for a chest of drawers, floating shelves, or under-the-bed lockers to manage whatever is inside your little ones’ bedroom. Whatever form of storage you pick, it should embody an ideal blend of form, function, and above all, a proper dose of fun.
Bring in some form of art
Art is the best way to deliver visual interest to the children’s bedroom. Art will also be a useful tool in choosing a color code. You can mirror color shades in bed linen and other soft furnishings, which will help to unify the entire space harmoniously. Modernist prints and graphics can also come in handy to lend a sophisticated style to bedrooms occupied by older kids.
Blend in a layer of light
You should never underestimate the importance of light when designing a children’s bedroom. Task lights above beds and reading tables will encourage reading, spots will create warmth, fairly lights will create ambiance, and ceiling lights with lampshades will bring focus to the room. Children falling asleep under gentle glow or fairly lights will give the much-needed reassurance of comfort to those afraid of the dark.
A lot goes into designing a children’s bedroom. It’s a delicate balance between fun and the rapidly changing tastes of your little ones. From lighting to the color you pick for the walls and ceiling, it’s a careful thought that should never be overlooked. Adequate storage is also needed to organize the bedroom and kept it clean and neat.
