Gone are the days when pinks and blues were the colors for young ones. With the growing revolution on colors and interchanging moods and hobbies, we see the gender line just pass off on colors, for best, we hope. Don’t be surprised to see a cupboard full of balls and motorbikes in your little angel’s favorite toy stock. Nor are boys so much after blues after all….
When decorating your kid’s room, keep in mind his and her temperament and use colors that blend with individual likings. There are many designer bedroom suites that adhere to some real trendy colors, where you don’t really need to run to stores and rework on adjusting heights, it’s all ready for use. You can then focus on bits that personalize the space with your kid’s choice. You know things like wall paint, paper and draperies, rugs and other pieces like it—the details.
On a general note, these are some of the areas you may like to pay attention to. Another way is to buy a few elements of essential furniture like beds and study tables with chairs and work on others, to cut off costs. Listed here are some attention paying factors you could use when planning a kid’s bedroom,
Walls & Colors
Like mentioned earlier, you can get more inventive with color and schemes. Murals are a great way to do a dull wall and add life. Wallpapers come in different creative patterns for kids. If painting, try to use water-based colors. It can be cleaned more easily. You can also use colorful tiling on the walls, provided it goes with the other colors. In case you are starting from scratch, it would be better to do the wall colors and then get furniture that matches.
Light is important and in a child’s life it gets even bigger. Use bright lights over the study, and to highlight certain accents or favorite corners. Floor lights may be great, as also dimmable lights. You can find many creative shapes and designs that can compliment your kid’s room. Make your child participate in the process and it will be a fulfilling experience for you both.
Floor tiles come in fancy colors, but it is advised to pay attention to details. You don’t want slippery tiles in kid’s room. Wooden flooring may be great, or regular non-slippery and good quality tiles can be fine too, and you can cover them up with rugs for novelty. You can find many friendly rug patterns specially designed for kids.
You get so much of kid furniture these days that you can wonder if it will be of any use two years down the line. The essential probably are the regular ones—bed or twin beds/bunk beds, a spacious cupboard, and bookshelf, a study table with comfortable chair. An added safety point, try to buy furniture with rounded edges in a kid’s room.
Possibilities know no bound when it comes to draping the windows. Use creativity to add to the glamour and theme. Stained glass, tented windows with white lace, shadowed windows where you block light to shadow shapes, or nicely draped windows that go with a theme.
All but one
Planning pays. If you decide on exactly the things you want, and the budget on hand, you can use the planning to create the effect you want without burning the pocket. Allow your child to participate; he/she may have the most practical thing on mind for his study, display or play. It works best when you know your kid’s mind. And feels like a teamwork too. You can let her/him know the budget and work together. Quality must be of high priority when buying sheets, pillow covers and cushions. Include play and store cubes to avoid clutter, use bright colors in the playroom, try and round up on non-breakable material for kids like to play a lot.
