When you have children, their rooms are usually the first place to show signs of being kids friendly.
Therefore, a child’s room can be one of the most important parts of your home to redesign if you plan on having children stay over frequently or just want to give your child a special space that they can call their own.
Fortunately for many parents, kids’ spaces don’t need too much work to become kid-friendly.
Here Is A Guide To How You Can Design Your Little One’s Room:
Go Easy With Paint
Picking out paint colours for your kids’ room might not sound like fun, but it has many benefits, including making the space feel cosier and giving them joint ownership by allowing them to choose their favourite colours (or colours).
You do not need to paint the entire room, as only painting the walls is usually enough for a kid’s eye. The colour you choose should work well with kids’ toys and furniture; if your child plays with trains, you want those bright red and green tracks to pop and contrast nicely against their cream or brown painted floor.
If you go with a bolder shade of paint, like pink perhaps, make sure that your other furnishings are either equally colourful or more muted in tone so that the room doesn’t end up looking too tasteless.
Designate Space For Activities
Children can be very messy sometimes, and you need to make space in their rooms for them to play. Designating an open area for kids to do activities like painting or building with Legos is a smart move because it keeps the mess contained and makes cleaning up easier than if everything was spread out everywhere.
If your room lacks this designated activity space, you might consider getting some storage bins in which your child can put their toys away when they’re done playing with them. With a modern tv unit with storage from Tylko, you can also store some of your kids favourite toys or blankets for when they fall asleep in the storage units.
Ensure that your child has enough storage space for all of their favourite things: children often collect a lot of stuff, so drawers and cabinets should be considered if you want to keep the disorder down. Place any items they don’t regularly use under the bed or somewhere else hidden so that the room doesn’t become cluttered.
Incorporate Natural Light
Adding natural light into your child’s room is a great way to make them feel happy and energized. If you can, try to place the room near a window to get some direct sunlight during the day.
You might also want to consider installing a skylight if you have the budget – this will give your child’s room an airy and spacious feeling that is perfect for creative play.
If your child’s room isn’t situated near a window, then don’t worry; there are plenty of ways to bring in more natural light. One popular method is to install overhead lighting with fluorescent bulbs as these mimic natural daylight.
You could also add lamps with yellow or pink light bulbs if you want to encourage your child to sleep better at night, but make sure that the lamps are small enough to be out of their reach.
