Decorating the house is a big task, especially if you’ve just moved in and need to do a complete makeover. And the hardest room to decorate of all is your son or daughter’s bedroom. If you get it wrong, they won’t be afraid to tell you about it!
There are a few things you can do to make sure you don’t get the design wrong though. Just use your common sense and think about what’s best for your child. Here’s how to make sure you get the ideal bedroom for them!
Let Them Have Their Say
You might think that your children are too young to have a say in the home decorating. But, think about it, it’s their bedroom, and they’ll be the ones using it every day. At least if they have a say in the decorating and help choose the colours, they won’t’ be able to complain so much.
That doesn’t mean you should hand them complete control, just let them be involved in the process. This is especially helpful if you’ve moved house to a new area and you want to help them settle and become invested in their new home.
Make it Comfortable
Everyone needs their bedroom to be somewhere for them to relax and feel comfortable. This also applies to your kids. It’s no good having the room look great if it’s not functional and comfortable.
Get some big bean bags for them to sit on and get a new mattress for their bed, and you’re sorted. Making a room comfortable isn’t hard work, it’s just about finding the right items at the right price.
Don’t Be Boring
Your child’s bedroom is going to be the place where they learn, play and ultimately, grow up. That’s why it’s so important to get the design right and not let it become boring and nullifying.
Be imaginative when you’re thinking about what to do. It definitely shouldn’t be dull and boring. Make it lively and bright, you want them to have fond memories of their childhood bedroom when they’re older.
Make it Adaptable
The big problem with coming with a design for a child’s bedroom is that children grow up, and their interests change. You don’t want to decorate the bedroom and then have to do it again in a few years time.
To avoid this, you should steer clear of designs incorporating popular characters from films and television shows. These are the kinds of bedrooms that go out of date and out of fashion very quickly.
Allow for Creativity and Learning
You should always be looking for ways to add ways in which your children can be creative and learn in all aspects of their life. This should also be applied to their bedroom. It can be as simple as mixing educational elements into the design or adding some educational toys. They have to be fun too though. Otherwise, they’ll just be ignored!
If you follow these simple tips, your son or daughter will have the ideal new bedroom in no time.
