Throughout a child’s life, the bedroom décor will change as they get older. This gives you the opportunity to be creative and, depending on the age of your child, a chance for your child to be creative too. So with this in mind, let’s look at ideas to give your child the best-decorated bedroom possible.
Child First Bedrooms
The key to a successful child’s bedroom is to put the child front and center in the design. Think about:
- What the child likes – superheroes, music, sport, etc.
- What colors the child likes.
- Their age.
- How to maximize storage and space, and let’s face it, you can never have enough storage space.
Of course, some children are not interested in bedroom decor. If that is the case, go with what you think is best.
Kid’s bedrooms normally work best when the colors are bright. They tend to make the room look better, and if you and or your child is of an artistic mind, it gives you a blank canvas to create murals and uses exciting tools such as 3D pens and the like.
That said, your child may like darker colors, so consider using a feature wall to accommodate their wishes.
Light, i.e., where the windows are, is essential in decorating any room. Ideally, if the room is well lit, you have a little more flexibility over color schemes. If the room is a little darker, brighter colors will make the space feel airier and bigger. Light and where it falls can complicate color schemes. That said, you can show your child how light affects a room which some children will find fascinating.
Materials are essential when decorating a kid’s room. Soft fabrics are always a win, and you can use complementary colors to the walls and floors, so you have a uniform finish. This can and should tie into what your child likes and their interests.
Furniture has to have form as well as function and, given the nature of childhood, be robust enough to survive being in a kid’s bedroom. So if you’re planning to invest heavily in a child’s bedroom furniture, you should ensure it is strong and built to last.
You may want to consider going for mid-priced furniture as your child will outgrow it eventually, and if it breaks, then it won’t hit your wallet as hard.
Although we lump teenagers, both boys, and girls, into one lump, they are just as an individual at this age as any other. Different teenage children are going to like different things. Many are into technology, so a tech-focused room could be arguably the way to go.
Many are not so tech-focused and want a more sociable space. Therefore, it is a good idea to get your teenagers involved in reshaping and modeling their bedrooms from the get-go. This way, they have a space that even the moodiest of young adult loves.
You can create a beautiful room for your child with a little thought and imagination.
