Are you considering decorating your children’s space? Is your child still in the crib, rocking chair or doing homework on a hutch pad in the space that you want to decorate? Do you want to add a childrens play area, study area or art room? What room does your child spend the most time in and what would you like to personalize it? These are just some of the questions you should ask yourself as you create your children's space. When you think about decorating your child's space, think about the future, how your child is going to grow, where they will go to school and what activities they may want to engage in.
Think about their daily activities and determine what their needs may be in a year or two down the road. Decorating your children's bedroom space can give you a new idea of how to use the space that you already have. When you decide to purchase or create a kids bedroom space keep these suggestions in mind. You can also contact a professional interior decorator to help you get the look you want.
First decide where you want the children space to go. Does it have to be in the corner of the room or the front? This is important because you want the eye level with the activity area. It should be accessible from both the front and back doors. If your child has an activity room separate from the rest of the family room, you may choose a fabric that can be hung from the door instead of an overhead drape.
Next determine if your child is going to want a play area or a study area in their kids bedroom space. Is there room for a desk and chair, a computer chair or maybe a trundle bed? What games will your child be using and how much room do you have for this now? Will it be a play area or study? Once you decide on these questions, it will be easier to decide what accessories you need.
Childrens are more active than most people think. They are active in many other ways and they don't even realize it. Activities such as playing in the kitchen, doing arts and crafts, cooking and playing board games are just a few examples. You don't want to fill your child's room with sports equipment, but you do want to have a few things for them to do. You can make the room interesting by adding unique wall art and prints to the walls, but I wouldn't recommend a stuffed animal or a set of Legos.
Finally you need to decide what color you want your kids bedroom space to be. Kids like bold colors, especially ones they enjoy. I would consider painting the walls a bright color to stimulate your child's senses, but if you are against bold colors, you can have the walls painted a softer color, just make sure it matches the other items in the room. Finally you need to choose the accessories for your children's room that will enhance the space, such as toy boxes that open up, music boxes that play music, etc.
