Kids Need a Special Place
Creating the Perfect Bedroom for Your Child
Bedding, Blinds, and More
The best bedding for a kid’s room is a reversible comforter. Depending on his mood, your child can change his room’s look as often as he wants. This type of creative control is what kids love!
Window treatments should be sturdy because kids like to open curtains and blinds to look outside. Whimsical accents make boring windows fun. Use stuffed animals, raffia, Christmas ornaments, or fat ribbons for curtain tiebacks.
Hang wind chimes, piece of artwork, or another fun accent from the center of the window or from a curtain rod. This lets your kids enjoy a cool piece of art (and works well if you prefer this artwork not be seen from the outside of the house).
A Special Spot
A reading area is an important feature in any bedroom. A younger child needs a spot to sit and look at pictures, or be read a favorite story. A beanbag in the corner with some easy-to-reach bookshelves and proper lighting will encourage an appreciation for self-education.
Mountains of pillows may be messy sometimes, but they can offer a comfortable and special spot for your little one to spend some quiet time.
Look for sturdy furniture in natural wood or basic colors. A one-time investment in quality furniture will allow you better redecorating budgets for future projects.
Purchase lamps, pictures, linens, and accessories that spin off from your child’s inspiration piece. For storage, use plastic bins or woven baskets that match the room’s color scheme. Solid containers are great for hidding toys that aren’t being used. The bins can be inserted in neat rows on shelves, making them handy, useful, and decorative.
Redecorating your child’s room can be a fun and rewarding adventure for both of you. Let you and your child’s imagination run wild and enjoy the ride!
