I am no interior designer, but I do know a thing or two about decorating kids’ bedrooms. Making a bedroom that your children will love is harder than it first sounds. If you don’t plan what you need in the room, you could find that the project becomes expensive fast. Whenever I am about to start a new project like this one, I like to make a list. I believe that writing down everything I need, helps me to figure out what to do first. Here is a quick wish list of things you need in your children’s bedroom.
Extra storage space
If you are a mother, you know how much stuff children have. You can always do with extra storage space for your children’s things, and so you need to design a room that will let you have just that. You could get a bed that lifts up to reveal a storage unit or just get some built-in wardrobes for the walls. Remember, the more storage space you have, the easier it will be to clean the bedroom. Look for unique ways in which you can store things in the room.
Playthings and toys
Every child needs toys and things to entertain them. I like to choose traditional toys for my kids’ room because it means that they will play with them all the time. If you want to take things one step further, you could consider installing climbing toys in the bedroom. For example, you could put ladders on the walls or hang them from the ceiling. When you were a child, you probably dreamed about all the cool stuff you’d like in your bedroom. Well, now is your chance to give that dream room to your kids.
A cosy bed area
If you want your children to get a good nights’ rest each night, you need to make them the perfect cosy bed. You should ensure that there is a separate area for the bed so that your kids can relax. If your children have loads of games around them, they will find it difficult to sleep. You should choose a comfortable bed (or bunk bed) and cover it with some beautiful duvet covers. You could get a curtain to go around the bed so that your children can block out any light and have a place in which to chill out.
I think that education is super important for young children, and so I try to do everything I can to ensure that my kids learn new things. There are loads of educational toys out there on the market. You should look for games that your children will enjoy without even knowing that they are learning things along the way. If you put these toys in your kids’ room, they will play them when you are not there. It is vital that you engage your children’s minds at an early age so that they are super smart later.
Books and a bookshelf
While we are on the subject of being smart, let’s talk about books. Kids learn about entertainment from their parents. If you teach your children that the best entertainment is cartoons, they will only ever watch TV. Instead, you want to teach your little ones to love the written word so that they adore reading. Buy a bookcase and fill it with children’s literature. You need to take the time to help your kids learn to read so that they can enjoy doing so.
Once you have decorated and kitted out your kids’ room, they will never want to leave it! I hope that you follow my advice and include some of these excellent things in the room. Thanks for reading my wish list – see you next time!
