When a child comes home after school, one of the first places in the house they go to is their bedroom. Now that you have a family of your own, the next step is to create a happy home in which your child will grow.
Decorating a bedroom according to your children’s wishes will be a fun experience. It is the perfect opportunity to encourage creativity and get them to use their young imaginations. Ask them about their favorite cartoon characters and use paint colors that they prefer. If he or she owns a pet, such as a hamster or fish in an aquarium, a suitable area where they will live will have to be determined before you begin.
While there is a good chance you will be successful the first time that you decorate the room, updates will no doubt need to happen as your child gets older. Here are a few ideas that you can use to enhance the look of your child’s room to suit their personality and age.
Make sure you have the appropriate furniture
Older children need to do their homework. A desk in the corner of the room will provide an area free of distractions. Make sure that the desk has sufficient lighting and decorate the room in monochrome, with a few colorful accessories and unique patterns. One way to increase space for dressers is to purchase a bed with divan storage. In addition, you can install a slide-out truckle bed for when your child wants to invite a friend for a sleepover.
Consider illustrated blinds
One way to be creative is to use graphic patterns to enhance the look of the bedroom. Illustrated blinds are chic and sophisticated. Ask your child to participate by adding a few pictures on the wall in the room.
Now is the chance to let the room stand out, with the help of printed and bold, patterned blinds. Ensure that the walls are durable and keep in mind that wall paneling will need to stand a lot of boisterous behavior from toddlers to teens.
Decorate the room with waterproof shutters
The installation of waterproof window shutters will add significant value to your home. You can rest assured that if your child has a vivid imagination and a taste for experimentation, the shutters will be durable and able to withstand water or humidity. A further benefit of this kind of shutter is that the finish looks similar to wood. Also, they enrich the entire décor of a child’s bedroom. Not only do they make the room look modern, but they also block sunlight and external sounds, allowing your child to sleep better. There is a variety of window shutters available that are decorative and easy to install, such as café-style shutters, and shutters in special shapes to perfectly suit those odd-shaped windows.
Be creative with the lighting
Lighting is an important aspect that will set the tone of a bedroom. There are alternatives to bed lamps or night-lights, which include a trail of fairy lights that can be installed on the wall to create a warm glow. This can look stylish and chic for an older child.
For the most pleasing effect, choose LED lights. A dedicated light source, focused on the artwork on the walls can be a creative way to decorate the room. A calming mural that your child will appreciate, with colors such as green and blue, will provide a soothing effect to the entire space.
Decide which colors your child will enjoy when painting the walls. You have many choices when it comes to the color of the room, and you have the freedom to pick a sophisticated shade instead of a typical Barbie pink, for example, if you have a daughter.
Use your child’s favorite artwork
A mural will not only look creative but will help a child’s imagination to soar. You can use accessories to make the room age-appropriate, and you really don’t need to worry about making everything match. Try to mix fabrics and shades to create an eclectic look. Add florals, with extra spots, stripes and shades to create a sophisticated look.
Remember that your child’s input on decorating is essential. It will give them a sense of responsibility and enhance their self-esteem. Whether you have a son or a daughter, they will come to love their childhood room for the rest of their lives.
