Kids’ bedrooms are much more than a sleeping area. They can be places where the child learns to express themselves especially since this is the only place in the house that they have a claim to.
When decorating your child’s bedroom, ensure that it inspires them to express themselves, develop interests and harness their talents.
The following are some tips to ensure that your child’s bedroom meets captures their unique interests and personality.
Encourage creativity and individuality
Children may find it easier to show their individuality and character through things they have added a personal touch to. This encourages their creativity from a very young age.
Giving them a board or side of the wall, for example, where they can put up their drawings or posters, can get them to communicate the colours or environment they like. They might be into sports, the arts, music or nature.
Paint the walls
Changing the colour of the wall of the bedroom, for example, can make a big difference in any size of the room.
If the child enjoys the outdoors you may suggest light blue shades for the sky and green close to the ground for grass that can give that illusion.
A darker blue colour for the sea and red-ish orange at the top could give the sunset vibe, for those who enjoy the ocean, just to mention a few.
The point is to give them a way to freely express their interests and preferences.
Have them choose the colours
Having a child’s input in picking colours will bring the aspect of a personal touch. Match things in the room with the wall theme will tie the room together. Any colour of bedding, curtains, furniture (study table, chair, bed frame) etc.
This can make the child feel included in planning and it’s an interesting bonding experience with the parents.
