How to style a fun and inviting Children's bedroom
Decorating your child’s bedroom is a special task, and you want to create a space that is not just functional but enjoyable for your little one too.
As mothers, we all want our children to have a comfortable, inviting room where they can rest, play, and grow. But it can be tough to design and style a bedroom that will transition with our child from baby to small child. Not to mention, we also want to keep the room tidy and have enough storage for all their toys and essential items. That's why we've put together this blog post with tips for moms and interior designers to create a fun and calm bedroom that will see them through for years to come.
So where to begin?
Start with a Neutral Colour Palette
A neutral colour palette doesn't have to be boring! Choose warm, calming colours like beige, ivory, or light Gray for the walls and floors. This will help create a blank canvas to add pops of colour and texture with bedding, curtains, and accessories. Choose a bedding set with a fun print or pattern that your child will love. This can be the focal point of the room that you can build upon with accessories. Remember not to go overboard with bold patterns or colours that may be overwhelming for your child.
Include Fun and Functional Furniture
One of the essential pieces of furniture in a child's bedroom is a bed. Choose a bed that will be suitable for your child until they transition to a small child. A convertible crib that can convert to a toddler bed is a great option. Choose a bedside table with drawers as extra storage for books, water bottles, or night lamps. A small desk or table with chairs is also a great addition to a child's bedroom for play, reading, or drawing. Lastly, choose a toy chest or storage boxes to pack away toys and play items at the end of the day.
Use Floating Shelves or Bookcases
Floating shelves or bookcases are a fantastic way to add extra storage to your child's bedroom. Use them to store books, toys, or decorative items that your child loves. They also add a personal touch to the room where you can display your child's artwork, photos, and decor items. Remember to anchor the bookshelves or floating shelves securely to the wall to prevent them from falling over.
Organise and Keep the Room Tidy
It's essential to organize and keep your child's room tidy to prevent clutter and chaos. Use storage bins or baskets to store toys and items that are not regularly used. Label the baskets or bins to help your child understand which items belong where. Have a designated spot in the room for dirty clothes and bedding, so they don't end up on the floor. Encourage your child to help keep the room tidy and make it a fun activity before bedtime.
Add Personal Touches to the Room
Lastly, it's important to add personal touches to your child's room that reflect their interests and personalities. Small touches like a favourite stuffed toy or a unique lamp can make a big difference in the feel of the room. Consider hanging up some family photos, your child's artwork, or specialized decor items. You can also add a rug or mat to tie the entire room together and make it feel cosy and inviting.
