For your child, a bedroom is more than just a place to slumber. It's a spot to do schoolwork, play games, read, daydream, visit with friends and stockpile toys. As you plan out your child's bedroom, you'll need a space that serves all those functions — and is comfortable and practical for several years to come. Designing a picture-perfect kid's room for a child can be a daunting task, especially without the right inspiration. An ideal setting is child-friendly but at the same time elegant and one that can transition well with them through the years. A kid's room can be one of the most challenging rooms in the house to redo. With a few easy tips and some creativity, anyone can decorate their kid’s room. Pick one item or color that will be the main focus of the room and make your decorating plans around that. This could be a cartoon character that your kids really love, or you could choose bright spring colors and go from there.
Moving on to some very helpful tips. Don’t pay attention to the age of your child. It’s important to acknowledge that children won’t stay young forever. Designing a room that’s more sophisticated than your child’s current age allows you to create a space that will grow with them, or else, the room will require refurbishing every few months. So if not the age, then how can one bring in youth and playfulness? We suggest you highlight your child’s personality. Incorporating elements of their character into the kid's room can do this. These elements will speak to your child whilst keeping the designing in alignment with the rest of your home. One great way is to experiment with color. Children love colors and bringing in colors appreciated by them can truly inspire zest to their room. It adds an exciting vibe and creates a sense of play that is essential in a children’s room.
Coming to the color palettes, we like to choose defined, darker color for boys’ rooms as it adds more depth to the space. Boys always like blues, greys and chocolates as they are more intense and visually interesting to the eye.
For girls’ rooms, whether you go with light blues or pinks, try adding layers and intricate details. It creates an element of playfulness while maintaining the feminine style girls always love.
Also, another important decision is choosing between wallpaper and paint. One can definitely opt for wallpaper for a kid’s room. It helps create a room’s personality with textures that add depth and interest to the space. Replacing wallpapers is much easier than paint, keeping in mind the ever-changing likes and personality traits of a child. One can include pretty, elaborate wallpaper for girls’ rooms and metallic, suede or leather for boys’ rooms. Since furniture is often an investment piece, you need to consider its future. Opt for more neutral colors and classic styles that are timeless and transcend current styles.
