Interior décor and arrangement of furniture is not always easy especially when the room is for a young child so here are a few key tips you can follow in order to create the best possible space for your child.
Maximize every inch of space
Do not clutter the room, ensure you leave an ample amount of space for your child to run and play in. You can create more legroom by pushing all the furniture up against the wall so that the centre of the room is left bare but if you feel like that it makes the room too plain then put a kids floor rugs down so that the space still looks colourful and cute. If you put the child’s bed in a corner against the wall it will also ease the little one’s fears letting him/her sleep better at night since most kids are afraid of what scary thing might grab them while they sleep so having the bed against the wall puts them more at ease while also creating more area to play.
Organize with colours and closets
Make a lot of cubbies and small cupboards and keep everything at the level a small child can reach so that the child can arrange everything by him/herself. Colour code some of the cubbies and explain to your child that red (or any other colour of your choice) is for toys, green is for books, yellow is for bats and balls…etc. This way there will be some sense of organization and your child will learn to keep tidy especially if you promise some kind of incentive at the end of every month if the cubbies are all arranged neatly.
What are their interests?
All children have a love of something or the other from the oceans to Disney princesses and rocket ships to nothing but the colour pink. You can play off your child’s most favourite things and add them to the room in a tasteful way. Do not dedicate the entire room to their favourite passion like some kind of shrine because kids outgrown things fast and in a few months they may no longer like the theme of their room. So stick to neutral colours but link their favourite things into the room subtly. For instance, you can get the best modern art for kids and use it to decorate their walls, get an art piece that has something to do with what they like and make it a focal point of the room. Get things that are easily removable if the child is no longer interested in it. Even the furniture should not be something that the children will outgrow otherwise you will constantly have to change it out.These three key tips will ensure that your kids room is the very best for them in terms of longevity, organization, space and comfort.
