How To Design The Perfect Child’s Bedroom
How do you design a bedroom for the perfect child? No, that’s not really what we’re asking. No one is perfect, but with a bit of clever planning and investment in quality pieces, your child’s bedroom just might be.
Steer clear of fads
Of course you’re designing the bedroom for your child. But that doesn’t mean you should over-theme to suit their tastes. This may sound harsh, but think about how quickly they change their minds. If they love butterflies this month, they may not be so keen the next. You can invest in some classic pieces and still have fun. And if they are desperate for those butterflies, consider wall stickers or prints that can be easily replaced. Notonthehighstreet.com has a good selection of tasteful vinyl wall stickers.
Keep the basics neutral
Good quality furniture will stand the test of time. If you keep the basics neutral, then toys and soft furnishings can inject colour and fun, and be tailored to your child’s personality. We love this colourful clothes stand – Paradise Tree by Magis
Whiteboard and blackboard paint is also a great way to allow your child to express his or her creativity.
Storage, storage, storage
Essential if you ever want to be able to push the door open and find a path to the wardrobe, good storage can work with the design of your room. This String storage system comes with cabinets, shelves and two desks.
And finally…once you’ve created the perfect room, he or she will want to share it with their friends! So don’t forget the soundproofing. Rugs will help to muffle those footsteps. Why not try this colourful HAY Pinnochio rug.
Keep track of Time
Vitra Zoo timers are a fun way of helping children to tell the time and make sure they get to school on time!!! Available in 3 fun animal design’s.
Be creative with Children’s rooms, they dont have to be boring or age restrictive and if designed correctly can be fresh for many years. Check out our Pinterest board for more information – http://www.pinterest.com/cimmermann/childrens-rooms/
