Decorating your kid’s room is not an easy task, especially if they are still young. It will require creativeness and commitment as you will have to change the style as your kid goes through different phases.
But if you teach your kid to be well-organized, you will make sure that they will respect their room and make the best of what is available in their rooms. Moreover, making sure that you include your kid in decorating their room, you will make sure that the end result will be something that they like too.
When starting to organize everything in the room, make sure that you think like a kid, after all, all their stuff needs to be available to them, and not to you. You are taller than your child, and take this into account, as you want your kid to be able to reach what they need. Place everyday objects and items at heights that your kid can still reach, and other things which are not as important you can place higher. Make sure to utilize everything in the room, and if necessary, introduce hangers so that your kid can use those as well when packing away toys and clothes.
Every kid likes to paint, and if there is no paper available they will most certainly turn to walls; which can be used to their advantage. By using specific paint, you can repaint one wall and make it into a chalkboard that your kids can use to freely draw. Maintaining this painted wall is not at all hard, and it will be a great way to use a center piece to make a small art section in their room.
DIY for the kids
Storage is always an issue, and in order to make the room look more interesting and have more storage space at the same time, you can set aside a weekend with your kids to create small DIY storage units. This is a great way to reuse things which are lying around the house, and it is also a great way to spend some quality time with your children. Moreover, as your kid will be involved, they will respect and take better care of this small DIY storage unit; and if they are crafty, you can let them design their own units.
Lighting is important
If you want your kid’s room to have perfect lighting then make sure that you include your child in the decision-making. They will tell you exactly what kind of a lamp, or fixture they want so that they will not be scared in the night.
Using different lamps can also help with defining certain areas in the room. If they are old enough to read, they can certainly utilize reading lamps at their desks; and with modern designs you can really add some added charm and warmth to their room. Just make sure to include your child when choosing the fixtures so that they will be happy too.
While kids love to sit and play, they will most certainly love to jump around as well. Installing quality rugs will ensure that your floors will stay intact, and that the room will be warmer as well. And on the other hand, good carpeting will make sure that the sound is isolated too, making sure that even if the kids are having fun, you can relax too.
Before heading to the nearest shop to buy everything you need, you will have to make sure that you have a big enough budget for it. Try to take into account that your kid is still growing and that in a few years you will have to change a number of things. It is wiser that you plan ahead so that you can reconfigure the room if necessary.
Remember to include your kid when making the necessary decisions, so that they can have exactly what they want. After all, making sure that your kid has fun in their own room is the primary reason for re-decorating. And if your child is happy in their own room, then rest assured that you will be happy as well.
