5 Tips for Designing the Kid Bedroom
What is the "perfect kid's room" really like? If you had asked me that question when I was six years old, I would have spoken emphatically about bright colors and Lisa Frank-themed bedding.
If I had asked myself the same question when I was twelve, I would have swapped all the cartoons for quotes and photos of my friends and applied them to all open surfaces. At eighteen, I honestly didn't care less about my room in my house because I was building my home away from home in the college dorm.
And now, as I travel to the dorm as a mother, I realize that my dislike for neon tapes and anime posters is really due to my age.
But what does it really mean to create the ideal space for your children? From wall colors to choosing furniture, here are some tips for designing the perfect room.
Get Their Input
If you are looking to create a comfortable, warm and exciting space for your children, be sure to include them in the process.
Although I am not necessarily arguing that your child is the primary decision-maker, there is a special kind of ownership that is created when they are able to evaluate children's ideas, decisions, and even purchases in the bedroom.
Depending on the age of your child, they can share preferences about tables, themes, or even colors. If your kids share a room, you can even incorporate ideas that balance each of their perspectives, so that there are parts of the space that look truly unique and individual.
Incorporate Their Favorites (in Flexible Ways)
If you think back to your early years, chances are you had a favorite character from a movie, TV show, music, etc.
Maybe this character changed every year (or month, or week ...), but it was still something that you were passionate about, and the same goes for your son!
An easy and flexible way to incorporate your child's favorite characters is to get removable wall decals that can be removed when your child is no longer at that specific stage.
You can buy inexpensive themed sheets and blankets or even use something like a chalkboard to draw designs that can be easily erased.
Rely on Neutrals to Allow for Change
Whether it's deciding what to eat for breakfast or determining their favorite paint color, kids are notoriously indecisive and that's okay, honestly.
The things we loved when we were little have certainly changed many times. Recognizing and accepting this in our children is the first step.
However, when it comes to colors, it is best to try to choose neutrals as much as possible. This makes the switch much easier (without taking the fun out of it).
For example, instead of painting all four walls of your daughter's room light blue, create a prominent wall. This wall will be much easier to change and it won't take as much time, money, and effort as repainting the entire room when you decide that blue is no longer your favorite shade.
Ensure the Space Is Conducive to Rest
One important thing parents often forget is that bedrooms are made for lounging. Simple things can make a big difference.
For example, it's best to buy a floor-to-ceiling curtain or blackout curtain to keep the light completely out. This will help with sleep routines (especially for younger children) and most of the curtains have fun colors so your child can still express himself.
Create Different Areas for Different Activities
At first glance, this advice may seem like younger children, but it is actually relevant for all ages. Having multiple "pockets" in the room for different activities can help with self-directed autonomy, work and play, and responsibility.
For example, creating a homework station or workspace can help older children become more responsible and focus on tasks or projects.
For younger children, having a "Lego" station can help create more robust routines around the bed or at nap time, because toys are not part of the sleeping area.
When designing the perfect children's room, remember that separation can also make space appear larger, creating more space for fun.
