Looking for new ideas to decorate your kids room? Give the room some longevity by choosing background elements that are long lasting. Then use accessories, bedding, and inexpensive area rugs to create easily changeable themes. Unlike the other rooms in your home, which mostly reflect your personality, decorating kids rooms requires a slightly different approach.
Whether you’re a first-time parent or a veteran, decorating kids room is not child’s play. It’s a quite complex process where an adult has to incorporate all the safety features and blend them with childlike fantasy.
The room should be an expression of the child’s identity, not yours. But children change, so you need to think ahead: will the design be easy to modify in five years, or even two? Is there room for storage, study, animal or doll collections, or a wrestling match?
First, consult with the child. Be certain to consider the child’s likes and dislikes when decorating their space. Decorating kids rooms is a work in progress – the planning begins before they are even born and goes on throughout their childhood.
You can be as creative and over the top as your child lets you; Vibrant and playful colors work well in any child’s room. Always paint children’s bedrooms with a semi-gloss, so the walls are easy to wipe without being too shiny. As for storage, check out your local do-it-your-self center for a host of affordable solutions.
As children grow, learn, play, and explore, their environment should respond. Kids will enjoy the exciting makeovers because they highlight their favorite interests at every age. As your child gets older, ask for their input.
