Tips For Decorating Your Child’s Room

Decorating a room for a child gives you the opportunity to create a whimsical space that will inspire creativity and joy in your child. But, you also need to take into consideration your child’s age, design tastes, and the space that you have to work with. To create a fun and functional room for your child use these expert tips.

Add Pattern and Texture With Easy To Change Products
Your child will probably change their taste within a year or two which means you’ll have to redecorate. Use temporary products and fixes when you’re decorating so that you can easily and quickly change the look of the room. Look for products that are favored by renters because they are designed not to be permanent. Peel and stick wallpaper is a great thing to use in a kid’s room because you can use it add color and texture to walls, dressers, nightstands, even a bedframe. And it’s easy to change when your child’s taste changes. 

Paint is another way you can add a lot of personality to your child’s room without making any permanent changes. Sample pots of paint are inexpensive and can be used to create stunning murals and accents in your child’s room. And when your child is ready for something different you can easily repaint. You can also use linens, pillows, area rugs, and curtains or blinds to add pattern and texture to the room that are all temporary and easy to change when your child is ready for a style switch. 

Focus On Furniture
The furniture that you choose for your child’s room should be appropriate for your child’s age but also designed to grow with them. Furniture that does double duty and has storage is a great way to give your child the tools to keep their room organized and tidy. Choose furniture with a classic look that will go with any design theme that your child chooses in the future. That way you won’t have to replace all of the furniture every time you child wants to change the design of the room. You use temporary solutions like Washi tape or contact paper to make the furniture blend into the room. 

Go Custom
Even though custom furniture and built-in shelves are a little more expensive than buying pre-made furniture and storage solutions the extra cost is often worth it. Custom shelves, a long countertop that can be used as a desk or an art space, and a bed built into an existing nook or small alcove will make maximize the potential of the room. Having custom shelving and other items added to your child’s room is the best way to use every possible inch of the room.
