Home Design for Kids Rooms
This can be fun or trouble depending upon how you handle it. Kids have a mind of their own and so do we. They like one thing and we like something completely different. Here are some simple suggestions for making decorating their room relatively simple and avoiding a turf war.
Let Them Get Involved. Ask them for their input; but keep it limited. They want bright green paint. You know it won't be practical; especially as they get older. And you don't want to be re-painting as their color choices change. So make a compromise and go with a less bright shade and show them color options that you pick.
Make The Room Easy to Change. As they get older you don't want to have to re-decorate the entire room. It can become costly. So; purchase furniture that is simple in design an avoid trendy items in major purchases. You can purchase trendy accessories that won't break the bank and can be changed out as they get older.
Also; purchase furniture that serves double duty. Such as a desk that can be used for homework and computer games. A chest that can store items and be used as a seat and bunk beds are great if you have more than one chld and limited space.
Consider the price. Some items you can find in garage sales and flea market. A good example is furniture. Many people sell furniture after a child gets older and at great prices. Look for sales at furniture stores. Today there are a lot of sales and you can really find many good buys if you prefer to purchase new. Stores like to make deals and you might be able to purchase floor models to save more money. The key to getting good prices…negotiate.
Let them Decorate. Perhaps your child likes to draw. Have them do some drawings and frame and hang them. Put up a cork board so they can post their favorite stickers, pictures or whatever hey like. This also keeps the walls neat and free of tape and tacks. There is a blackboard paint that can be painted right on the wall if you want to give your child more room to be creative.
When decorating; also remember that your child will grow out of the items they liked as a younger child. So; you will want to avoid getting to carried away with cartoon or action hero decorations. These can quickly fall out of favor and new characters will replace them. Do you want to keep buying and replacing?
