Creating The Bedroom Of Your Children’s Dreams

How we design and decorate our children’s bedrooms is an important task, deserving of plenty of time for planning and implementation. Children, very much like adults, are susceptible to their surroundings and the places they spend time can and will affect their mood and ability to have fun.

By using your imagination and looking to your children for inspiration, you can create the perfect room for your little ones that reflects their interests, gives them a place they can play and have fun, and when they’re older, a place to study and a private escape from busy family life.

Making it fun is the most important element, so be prepared to think outside the box and give your child a room that he or she will love for years. Children grow quickly and so their tastes and personalities develop, so it can be difficult to find the perfect bedroom that won’t be outgrown incredibly fast. Adding features like suspended beds, murals, bright colours, and even slides can add an element of fun that will take a long time to get bored of.

But style also matters, especially for older children who are more trend-conscious. Work with your children in the design and idea process to find the right balance between fun, style, and function.

Colour can also be a difficult decision. While primary colours can be the perfect idea for younger ones, they will soon row out of this and bold reds and blues can be hard to cover. If you’re looking to create a dynamic room that will grow with your child, choosing pastel colours as a base and adding personality to easily interchangeable soft furnishings is a wise move, and one that will save you money and time in the future.
