Decorating a Child's Bedroom
If you are looking to make the perfect bedroom for your child you have a lot of neat choices to choose from. There are several steps you can take that won't break your back while trying to impress them. It can be stressful trying to decorate any room in the house, but knowing that your child is a part of it can help out tremendously.
Before you begin decorating, see if your child wants to be a part of all the decisions. A great afternoon going over decorating ideas and color schemes will bond you two together.
If the child is big enough, they can give an overall idea and the both of you can work to make it a reality. Set a budget before you begin. Letting the imagination run wild without a limit is a surefire way to overspending.
Even before the child moves in the room, instill the habit of being organized. Continue this theme as you set aside areas for play, sleeping, art, reading, and other various activities. Toys should have their own area separate from clothes and books. Whether that be a desk, dresser, or toy box, everything has to have its own place and order will be maintained.
Always organize with every step. No matter what you do you must always organize. It is better to live in a clutter free environment then to live in a complete mess. Have places where your child can put their things away, and they will most likely clean their rooms, not every time but most of the time. There is place for everything if you make sure that there are organizational tools to help the child. Whether that be a desk, dresser, or toy box, everything has its place.
To start the decorating, you must first start with a theme. Whatever the child chooses you should go with. Then you can follow with painting, and the furniture. Let your child decorate however they want to but make sure that you get the final say so after all of the basics are done. Your child should express themselves without being pressured to do what you want them to. It is their room, so make them happy.
Finish the look with throw pillows, curtains, light fixtures, and area rugs. For a bedroom, you want soft rugs like colored flokati rugs that can make the room feel more comfortable and cozy. Choose the color that she wants and get the comfort that you like the best. Choose blue rugs for a boys room or yellow rugs for a girls room. Area rugs should be placed around the areas you want to highlight the most; the side of the bed, at the foot of the bed, the dresser, play station, reading corner, and more.
