For most people, home is considered the safe haven where they can be themselves and let their guard down. Furthermore, the bedroom is a place of relaxation and rest. The bedroom should portray an nice ambiance and vibe of total bliss. Even though most adults think about this when it comes to their own bedrooms, this also applies to a child’s room.
Often times, children will grow into their teenage years with furniture and toys from the childhood. While it is common, it also facilitates a stale living environment. Thankfully, there are tons of ways you can directly change the appearance of your child’s room for the better.
Decluttering is often necessary when it’s time to make your child’s room more age-appropriate. In most cases, there are a lot of toys, clothes, books and other accessories you used when they were younger. Gather up a few trash bags and give them labels. A few of the trash bags get marked for donations. The other trash bags can be marked for the trash. Not everything needs to go, but you do have to streamline and make sure that everything that’s in the room has a purpose and assignment. Whatever doesn’t need to be there must go.
Paint is one of the most powerful accessories you can use it any road. Whether you choose to do a statement wall or cover all four walls of the room in one color, paint can leave a dynamic impact. In addition to paint, also consider different wall designs and styles like stenciling, sponging and decals. When it comes to painting, it’s nice to consider the use of your child’s favorite color.
Accessories are essential to making sure our room looks lived in, warm and beautiful. Pick fun and age-appropriate lampshades, picture frames and artwork. For a sophisticated look, consider using counter slide in frames to display beautiful pictures of the special people in your child’s life such as family and friends.
It’s really wise to find furniture that can shift as the children get older. Trundle beds, daybeds and bed frames that can transform from a twin to full-sized beds work really well. Consider purchasing classic, timeless and useful pieces in neutral colors. When it comes to furniture, you’re not going to want to skimp on the price. Quality is so important because as your children grow, their desires to jump and play hard on furniture grows as well. In order to avoid replacing furniture every one to two years, get sturdy pieces that can last the test of time.
Creating an age-appropriate room doesn’t have to be a difficult task. With some creativity, research and a willingness to declutter, the room can look stunning in no time.
