It’s important to think about balance when you’re decorating a kid’s room. It should definitely be a fun and enjoyable space to spend time in. It should be playful, colorful and relatable for your children. On the other hand, it’s a room for resting and probably studying later on in life. Therefore, you mustn’t go overboard with the color arrangement and make it too distracting, especially for younger kids. And finally, it’s important to remember whose room is it. Decorating should accommodate the kids and not just be a fun project for the parents.
Curtains are the best way to add color to the room without having to paint it. Depending on how much time you have and how crafty you are – you can choose to get store bought ones or to make them yourself. Both options have their advantages. Choose the pattern or a theme your kids enjoy; buk keep in mind that this isn’t a once in lifetime decision – fun patterns for younger kids will soon be replaced with the favorite cartoon and then favorite comic book hero. The most important thing, however, is to choose the materials based on how much natural light the room gets during the day.
The bed is usually the center of a nursery and later on the kid’s room There are a few ways to make it pop. The easiest one is to get the perfect Cot bedding. This way you can change it up, depending on your child’s interests. But, there are other options as well. Consider painting the whole bed in a bright color contrasting the rest of the room. Shiny red bed in the boys’ room adds a little bit of whimsy to it. Also, consider getting decorative headboards and upholsteries. Handmade decorations are probably the best, but you can also get interesting patterns online.
Splashes of color
Even if you’re going for a more serious or monochromatic look, that doesn’t mean there’s no room for color in it. The best way to add a personal touch to a subtly decorated room is to splash a bit of color here and there. For instance, lively kids rugs will go well with almost any design and they could attract attention as soon as you enter the room. The same goes for a bulletin board, which isn’t just a fun addition but can also be quite practical, especially if there are siblings sharing a room. In the end, you could get creative and add some random paint to one of the walls and see how it goes. It will look artistic.
Displaying your library isn’t only an invitation for your kid to read more – it’s also a great decorative choice. It doesn’t have to be a traditional bookshelf. Hanging book racks are becoming quite popular – they leave you with more space and look better if you put a little effort in arranging the books. When it comes to books themselves it’s up to you – you can go with a color pattern or arrange them according to the subject. A messier look has a certain charm to it.
This is another alternative to painting the whole room. It’s easier, faster and you can change things up, once your kids get bored of this particular theme. The stickers can be found online or handmade, depending on what you want to accomplish. If your kids are old enough they can cut and mix and match their own stickers. Fluorescent ones can also be used as night lights.
When choosing the color for your kids, you have to take lighting into consideration. Children need more light for both writing and protection. The lamps in their rooms are usually lower than the ones in the rest of the home. All of this can affect the way color works in the room. Always test the change you made with all the lights on. The type of light bulbs is also important. Traditional incandescent light bulbs will emphasize red and yellow, while fluorescent lights work better with greens and blues.
Don’t be afraid to keep your kid’s room bright a vivid. The colors don’t always have to match the way they would in the rest of the home. Off course, try not to go too far – it should be a place suitable for both resting and studying.
