Children's room decorating: Useful tips, design ideas & points

Sunday, December 27, 2009


Decorating a child's room can be as much fun for the adults as it is for the children. There are hundreds of different styles, designs, techniques and themes you can choose to employ. The most important place to start is obviously with your child. Make sure you take the time to really listen to what is they like and want before you embark on any drastic changes to their personal space. That's not to say you have to agree to paint their room neon pink with lime stripes, just that it's important to incorporate what they want in keeping with your financial means and general standards and ideals.




Start with the basic elements - bed, wardrobe, shelves and desk if the child already goes to school.
Good quality bed and mattress are very important. Although children do not have large mass and thus do not generate a lot of pressure on the mattress, allow them to have healthy and comfortable sleep.


If this is a room of larger dimensions, it is desirable to divide it into 'zones' for different activities- sleeping, eating, playing and / or socializing with friends, learning.


Favorite cartoons characters or film heroes which often symbolize strength and power, and carry positive messages about relationships and justice could also be a good starting point when looking for a room decorating theme. Subject may be dominant in the area through the colors and motifs of the elements of furniture, wallpaper on the walls, the figures on the shelves, etc.



Children are often fascinated animals, but do not have the chance to play with them. Therefore, you can transform their room into a little "animal kingdom" - buy plastic and rubber animals of different species and provide enough free space on the floor to ensure all the "animals" are able to attend the game.
Children's imagination is immense. They often identify themselves with characters they see on TV, and assign themselves roles of knights, pirates, warriors, fairies, princesses, etc. Make their environment imaginary world in which their roles are becoming real.



If your child has a special talent, like music, art, etc., try to decorate his or her room in a way that reflects those talents. The presence of appropriate tools or equipment at any time will help to manifest and further develop this ability through a game or a serious exercise and learning.

What I'm trying to tell is that only the sky is the limit when it comes to creating fun and innovative ideas for decorating children's rooms. There are beautiful furniture and wonderful textiles available to give your children a room that is more than just a place for rest, but one that is used for fun and recreation too. Cheerful colors and playful elements of furniture and walls, complete with favorite toys and other items for fun, will turn it into an oasis which promotes the game and but also learning activities.
The ideas and options are endles, if your child is old enogh consult them on what they like and want to see then work with that to create something spectacular!
