You might be a decorating pro when it comes to setting up your living room or bedroom, but decorating a kid’s room is a whole other story. Design a space that your kids will actually love and want to spend time in by following these kids’ bedroom decorating tips.
1. Let your kids help
I’m not saying that you should let your kids have complete control over the decorating process. Otherwise you might end up with a room filled with so many colors that you get a headache every time you enter. However, it’s important that your kids are happy with their bedroom and feel good about their living environment. If you don’t already know, find out what their favorite colors are or which cartoon characters they like best. Then you can decorate their bedroom to match their interests.
2. Allow plenty of space for activities
As adults, we might need space to walk around, but rarely do we need an open space to play games or enjoy activities. Kids are different though, and their bedroom is also their playroom. Place furniture up against the wall rather than the middle so your children have plenty of room to play.
3. Keep the future in mind
When decorating a kid’s bedroom, it’s easy to get carried away and want to set up a space with just the present in mind. But your kids are growing and what they like now may not be what they like next year. To prevent having to buy new furniture every year, look for staple furniture sets that will continue to please throughout different stages of your kid’s life.
Once you have the furniture, then you can go ahead and fill your kids’ rooms with fun accent décor that can easily be replaced. Then, when your daughter has decided that purple is no longer her favorite color, simply switch out her pillows and wall art for new accessories. Removable wall stickers and stencils are also a great idea for temporary décor.
Designing a space that is both fun and functional isn’t impossible. Simply follow these three tips and create a space your kids will love!
