When it comes to your child’s bedroom, their wants and your wants will likely differ quite drastically. While you might want to a quiet, calm place where your child can rest after a long day and find hours and hours of restful sleep, your child might want a place where all their toys can fit and where he or she is free to do whatever activities their heart desires. Luckily, a child’s bedroom doesn’t have to be just one or the other. So to help you create a great space for your kid, here are three tips for creating the perfect bedroom for your child.
Consider Wall Decals
For many kids, they want their bedroom decor to reflect the things that they love. This can be anything from a television show character to their favorite toy or even just a color palette they love. But as a parent, decorating your child’s room in something so specific can seem like a recipe for disaster, since a child’s taste often changes quickly and without reason. So to keep you from having to take on a completely new redecorating project every few weeks, Michelle Ullman, a contributor to The Spruce, suggests that you use wall decals for decor rather than painting on the walls or putting up wallpaper. With wall decals, these stickers can easily be peeled right off the paint on the wall and either by put somewhere else or completely replaced. This will help to keep your walls clean without requiring a lot of work from you.
Only Use Wood Furniture
Because children can be pretty hard on their possessions, you might wonder what the best materials will be to use in your child’s room for things like furniture pieces. According to Kamlesh Kumar, a contributor to Today.com, wood is usually going to be the best choice for furniture that you use in your kid’s room. Wood is sturdy enough to support your child’s needs without being extremely hard or dangerous in any way. While some other materials can have sharp edges, the edges of wood furniture, especially furniture specifically designed for children, doesn’t have sharp edges, so you don’t have you worry about your child getting hurt when in their room alone.
Make It Easy To Clean Up
Since kids aren’t usually great at keeping things clean on their own, you’re going to want to design and arrange their room so that it’s easy to keep things clean and organized. According to Jennifer Kelly Geddes, a contributor to This Old House, you can help your child corral their clutter by putting boxes, shelves, or storage cubbies all throughout their room. By doing this, you’re supplying your child with ample space to put their toys and belongings so they’re off the floor and out of the way.
