When doing up your home make sure that first thing you do is set up your kid’s room, else his/her belongings will be what you will find all over the house. Here are a few tips one can follow, and make decorating one’s kids’ room an exciting experience.
Decide a colour theme for the room, as lots of colours will give a claustrophobic look to the room. If at all you want to put in lots of colours to brighten up the room, you can choose to colour one wall with different colours or make graffiti.
Make a collage of paintings or cards done by your kid on the wall. Pictures of family and friends will add to the comfort of the room. Make them help you decorate the room.
Have a playing area at one corner of the room. Play areas for younger children may include an arts and crafts corner.
Place large decorative baskets for toys, books, etc. See-through storage containers is a good option. Closets should contain plenty of shelves and racks for clothing and shoes. Make sure that children’s clothing are within their reach.
Good lighting is essential in children’s room.
A reading lamp is a must for the reading area and the bedside table.
Keep changing cushion and pillow covers of your kid’s room as it will give him/her a feeling of newness and won’t make him bored of the environment.
