So here’s a good start, in 3 Simple Steps you & your child will be on the way to a cohesive bedroom design you’ll both enjoy!
Decorating Children’s Bedrooms | 3 Simple Steps
Decorating a child’s bedroom involves imagination. Because it’s a space where color and wonder collide. And with so many innovative products & DIY ideas, it’s fun to be a kid again, if even just for a little while! But don’t get lost in yourself. Because all good design is about the client. And since your client is your child, listening is the key.
First, a floor plan. And within the floor plan consider toy storage options. Also zones for reading, homework, and play. Although in reality, most children’s bedrooms simply do not have this kind of extra space. So, in this case, just keep the scale & proportion in mind. And think vertical storage.
Second, decide on a color palette. Once the rooms color palette is decided then everything else begins to fall into place.
Finally, Accessories. Like most children, they already have a bunch of stuff. But you’ve got that organized within the floor plan step already. So now it’s time to edit and focus on accessories. And here you can take cues from your child’s interests or favorite colors. For instance, in the Girls Bedroom below, pink is clearly the design focus. Along with a beautiful blue & pink area rug completing the rooms color palette. Then layers of pink accessories including; roman shades, bedding & artwork were added.
Lastly, don’t be frustrated if your child isn’t interested in any of this. I’m sure you have an idea of what they prefer, such as dark colors vs. light colors. And know what their interests are. So you can simply move along at a pace that works for the entire family.
