There are plenty of milestone moments in a mother’s life. The first is when she finds out she’s going to have a child. Then there’s things like the first step, the first word, and a whole host of other “firsts” you’ll want to capture on camera. Before you know it, your child will have grown out of the nursery you painstakingly designed for him or her when you first found out you were expecting, and they’ll be looking for something newThe question is, how do you design the perfect bedroom for a youngster who’s tastes, and preferences are totally different to your own? The following tips might just be able to help.
Work in zones
As your child begins to grow up, they’ll have hobbies and other commitments that dictate how they spend their time at home. While you’ll have to have a sleeping and play area in your child’s room, you might also want to think about an area for painting for a young creative mind or a study space for a child that will soon be going to school. You don’t need to go over the top here, something as simple as a desk and chair can be enough.
Make storage simple
Storage is something that you simply won’t be able to get enough of when you start decorating your child’s room. While kids and mess might go together naturally, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make it as easy as possible for youngsters to clean up after themselves. Shelving, toy boxes, and cupboards are all a great way to make sure that you don’t have to deal with a constant pile of clutter.
Support their interests
As mentioned above, when your child starts to get a little older, they’ll develop passions for things. Those passions might include interests like art and dance, or they might be much simpler than that. For instance, your child might really love the color blue or a popular comic book character. A little artwork and a comforter can be enough to delight any child.
Let there be light!
Your child won’t want to spend much time in their room if it’s always dull and dingy. With that in mind, make sure that there’s plenty of light available. We’re not just talking about a quirky bedside lamp either. Bay window shutters can give your child more control over the amount of light they let into their room, so they can relax at night, and enjoy a brighter experience throughout the day.
Have some fun
Childhood doesn’t last long. Before you realize it, your child will be all grown up, and you’ll be left wondering where all the time went. Make the most of the precious moments you have with your child and invite them to take part in the decorating process with you.
Creating a room your child will love
Decorating a child’s room shouldn’t have to be a nightmare. Have a little fun and allow your creative side to run wild. This is the moment when your inner child should come out. If you follow the tips above and give your child some freedom to explore their own personality and style, you’re sure to create a space they love.
