Children’s bedrooms should be designed as enjoyable and functional spaces. It should be well organized. There should have been space for creative activity, toys, clothing, and study. Every room should reflect their personality by being custom-designed for their needs.
1. Store clothing and toys away and out of sight. For smaller spaces, you will need to be creative to find storage options. Decorative trunks for putting away toys and books can be used as a bedside table or place to sit when it is closed. Coat hangers for coats and clothing keep it off the floor. Use odd-shaped bookcases to store books, magazines, and graphic novels.
Creative storage spaces may even inspire kids to clean up and put away clothing and toys. Stylish and functional rooms need creative ideas. Some of this idea can give you a head start.
2. Don’t forget to decorate the walls. There are hundreds of posters that can transport a child to another world in their own bedroom. They have animals, landscapes, fantasy, monsters, cartoons, and celebrities themes that can be framed or just hung on the wall. Photos, paintings, and wall decals make a child’s room whimsical and creative. Choosing a complementary floral wallpaper is a major design decision and there are a seemingly endless number of designs to choose from.
Wall decals are easy to put on walls or paneling and remove when you want to change the theme. They can be arranged in a decorative pattern or theme. If you rent a home or condo and cannot use paint on the walls they add a decorative touch.
3. Find a suitable desk for kids in school with homework. A simple desk with an adjustable chair is all you really need. A desktop organizer or a few shelves over the desk help with organizing books, laptops, and paperwork.
Open shelves, bins, and baskets are very handy for storage with kids toys and clothing. Kids tend to be messy and disorganized and this helps them see where items are and where to store them away. Develop a system and teach your child how to use it.
4. In smaller bedrooms pushing the bed against the wall or bunk beds creates more room. Some families have another room for children to play in and do homework. For shared bedrooms, let children pick their own bedspreads, lamps, wall decorations, and desks.
5. For more privacy at night or anytime have a decorative divider or curtain that they can pull with a rod mounted onto the ceiling. These two items work well. The windows installed should have safety features to protect children from accidents. Interior designers like Advantage Property Styling stress safe windows and doors for children’s bedrooms.
6. Windows should have childproof locks to keep them from falling or climbing out. Windows safety guards are used for toddlers or babies. They are hard to open for young kids but easy for adults. Window blinds can be cordless to prevent accidents and choking. Window stops control the size of the window opening. They make safety blinds and shades for the window for small children.
7. Closets for children need organization and should be smaller so they can reach things. Low rods help children reach clothing or put it away easily. Use shelves for larger clothing items toys, and games. Use drawers for socks, underwear, and clothing. Provide a safe footstool to help them reach items up too high.
Create a bedroom theme and try to infuse it into the decorating theme. This can be done with toys, posters, bedspreads, and decorative objects. A child interested in science might have science posters, a microscope, chemistry set, solar system wallpaper, and an area for study. Using their interests or hobbies to design the room keep them children active.
