Interior Design: Making Your Kid’s Bedroom Stand Out

“Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist once you grow up.” -Pablo Picasso. Picasso noted something parents often forget, that children, with their amazing creativity and imagination often don’t continue to pursue creative thinking later in life. It’s up to the parents to take note of the preferences. Preferences in food, colors and entertainment can all point to where the child’s creativity lives. It’s important to create an environment that is able to foster a child’s growth and make them excited to tackle the adventures of the day. Through interior design, it’s more than possible to make a child’s bedroom a place that not only stands out, but brings out the best in them. Listed below are a few ways for decorating a bedroom that makes a child’s dreams come to life!

When tackling the design aspect of the room, inquire about a child’s preferences. Does the child enjoy music? If so, what kind? If there is a future rock star under your roof, consider a rock themed bedroom. Simple wall decals in the shapes of music notes, treble clefs and instruments add dimension and make the walls interesting to look at. If you can, make the doors you install from Vancouver have a role as well. Companies like RetroTeck Window Mfg. Ltd. Can help put on vinyl stickers and paint. If the child is obsessed with the stars and the galaxy, cover the ceiling with glow-in-the-dark stickers in the shapes of the moon, stars, and constellations. Drawing from a child’s interests can really help give a solid foundation for a theme. Keep in mind that it is best to keep the look as classic as possible so that in a year or two, the bedroom doesn’t look dated or tacky.

Every child has a favorite color. As a matter of fact, many children have multiple favorites. Incorporate favorite colors into the design through throw pillows, rugs, and fixtures. For an easy upgrade, create an accent wall that is one bold color. The other walls can be painted in muted colors to balance out the bold. Consider fresh shades of royal blue, emerald green and yellow. These colors are classically modern and can easily go with a lot of themes.

Children, bedtime stories, and toys normally all go together. Little ones love to be read to and they love to play with their favorite toys. Storage is vital to keep toys organized and in place. However, it’s important to have fun with it. Look at some of the trends that are already in home decor and don’t hesitate to incorporate them into your kid’s room. Open shelving is very popular for storage and can be used for books, the pet goldfish, and/or that trophy from the science fair. Comfy ottomans that double into storage for the loads of toys are an easy way to keep toys stylishly hidden, yet easily accessible.

Overall, it’s about using a little bit of creativity and imagination. Channel the child within and boldly follow these steps. Once that is done, decorating will be easy as 1-2-3!
