One of the most difficult spaces to design and decorate has to be children’s bedrooms. It is natural for parents to want to surprise their children with a gorgeous new room, creating at the same time a space where the they feel comfortable and safe.
There are endless possibilities in decorating trends for children’s bedrooms. Do some research and try not to get carried away. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind:
1. Functionality and design
A child’s bedroom should be a comfortable, practical place that is easy to clean and maintain. A good option is an expandable bed that increases as the child grows. If you have a small space, make sure the base doubles up as a storage space and utilise the often wasted space under the bed. Try to keep the bedroom as uncluttered as possible with lots of storage space available. Another great option is to add cushions on top of storage boxes to create seating.
2. Neutral colours
Paint the room in a neutral colour like white, stone, raffia or cream with small accents in green, yellow, blue or pink to give a cheerful and striking touch.
3. Decoration by themes
Be careful not to fall into the trap of decorating according to theme. Children grow out of a phase so easily. If you child loves cars, dinosaurs, unicorns or fairies, rather opt for wall stickers, vinyl stickers, pillows or accessories and carry the theme through like that. This way you are not bound by massive expense when they decide on a new theme.
4. Personalise the space
It is so easy to create a cosy atmosphere by introducing a customised teepee. This could double up as a reading nook or simply just a place for your child to escape into an imaginary world. A teepee is also a great place for nap time. Hang framed photos of the family or drawings your child made on the walls or get a painted cutout of his name or a favourite word.
