They say that a kid lives inside each of us and honestly, I agree! The only problem is we don’t usually find opportunities to give in to the whims of the child.
When it comes to decorating your kid’s room I think one should let loose that inner child. I am sure, lots of you are thinking about how one room will fit in with the perfectly synchronized setup of the rest of the house. This is the time when you should remind yourself “IT’S A KID’S ROOM”. This is the one place when you can step out of the norm and go wild!
Kids love colorful and loud things and after all shouldn’t your kid love the room that they’re going to live in? Here, colorful doesn’t mean you turn the whole room into a rainbow but rather add colors to the room in a way that stands out and isn’t heavy on the eyes.
Colorful quilts and pillows:
If your furniture is a standard color then a fun way to color up the room and give the room a happy, fun atmosphere is by using colorful bed sheets, quilts and pillows etc. Adding colors to the bed corner will brighten the room and expand the room quite a bit.
If it’s a baby your shopping for then bright colors will attract your baby’s attention, not to mention it will look absolutely brilliant. The bedding is the center piece of the room whether it’s a proper bed or a crib for your baby. Hence accenting it with bright colors will sure make the whole room revolve around its center piece.
Walls are the dominating factor in any room and kid’s room is no exception. If you want to add color to your child’s room and make sure it shouts out the essence of being a kid and more specifically your kid then painting your walls with a nice catchy color is sure to get the job done.
Here, painting the wall isn’t everything. You could go for a theme for your kid’s room. Wallpapers are the new paint and with the amount of choices in the market, no two rooms will be the same. You could have a famous cartoon character as a theme or go for something completely unique. Mix and match or just plain old color synch will make your room unique and give your kid’s room that something extra.
Bed set isn’t always the most obvious choice when you’re trying to color up your kid’s room. But believe me when I tell you that though a lot of people aren’t doing it, this is one style that is a definite eye catcher. Whether it’s the desk, the sofa or the complete bedding and shelving etc. having colorful furniture is a sure fire way to make a bold statement and your kid is going to love it.
Thinking out of the box isn’t something most people are comfortable with but when you try it out once in a while you’d be surprised at the results. Your kid’s room will be the envy of all the other kids not to mention quite a few parents as well.
One excellent option when it comes to your kid’s furniture is a bookcase bed. It saves a ton of space and allows you to decorate your room, store toys and other stuff and will highlight the bed space even more than usual.
Bookcase beds come in different colors as well as regular standard colors. They emphasize the bedding and make the room more spacious and lively. Having a bookcase bed or a bunk bed allows for more space within the room for other things and fun activities as well as coloring up the room, if not by its own color than by the color of the things on those shelves.
Writing desks are a vital part of a kid’s furniture and with the many designs and styles available in the market, there is never any shortage of colorful desks. Just like bookcase beds, writing desks can fulfil your colorful dreams by either being colorful themselves or by portraying colors with the help of the things on the desk.
Writing desks allow your child to study there, store his or her stuff and in general have a corner for creative and academic interests. If you room is colorful with a regular white or brown desk, this will highlight the desk and vice versa. This means that you can come up with a huge amount of combinations and choices for your room that will never be the same for any other.
These are the little things that though individually may not look like much but when put together in a room will highlight your kid’s room’s theme or focus point. Whether it’s stickers to put up on the wall, pictures, cloth hangings, stuffed toys or other décor pieces etc. these little details are what make up a room and a kid’s room in particular is highlighted by these little accessories.
Having colorful décor pieces on a desk or shelf, stuffed toys decorating the bed and room all around or wall hangings, picture frames etc. loitering on the walls is a perfect way to give a touch of your own personal style and taste and will accentuate the room beautifully.
When it comes to a child’s room there is so much more you can do than any other room in the house, so many colors you can play with, so many different styles and designs you can utilize and the best part is that you don’t have to hold back. You can go all in and there will be no judgment or wrong moves you could make there. So give your kid’s a special room that they will love to call their own and that you will love setting up.
