It is known that children's tastes and addictions change every second. And that's fine, because it's part of the great pleasure you get from growing up. But when it comes to creating a design for a children's room, reflecting the constantly changing interests of the child in it turns out to be very difficult and very costly.
How can you make the children's room grow up simultaneously with your child? This will help you use the following 5 tips!
1. Invest in non-aged furniture
Raising a child, we ourselves become a little children. Therefore, seeing the most lovely and elegant crib in the store, we will want to buy it at all costs! However, the attractiveness of such furniture, as a rule, considerably exceeds its durability. A couple of years will pass and your child will say that he is too grown-up and serious for this and you will be back in the store.
To prevent this from happening, look for furniture that you would like to see in your home for many years. For example, instead of buying a children's dresser or closet, it is better to choose one that contains as much as possible. Also, if there is a place, it is always useful to buy a double bed, possibly folding, instead of a single bed.
2. Choose multifunctional furniture
So, instead of a standard swaddling table, it will be best to buy a table or chest of drawers, on which a soft swaddling mat is laid separately. When the swaddling period has passed, it will serve as a child's desk. In the same way, when it's time to buy a bed, it's worth looking for one that has built-in storage compartments.
3. If you buy something expensive, choose neutral colors
In any room, there are such elements that we demand to withstand the test of time - for example, floor coverings, furniture, etc. If the part you are buying costs a considerable amount of money, make sure that it remains relevant after a certain period of time.
Neutral shades in the interior never get bored. And if you want a greater color variety, then add it with the help of various small decor, which is easier to replace when it goes out of fashion.
4. Bring into the room a personality with accessories
With a practical approach to the design of the children's room, it is important not to deprive her of her personality. This is your child's personal space and therefore it is necessary to encourage his desire for self-expression. Let the room have simple furniture, wallpaper and floor, but in it you can add bright curtains with your favorite cartoon characters, or carpet, or decorative cushions, pictures within the framework
5. Consult the child when making the final choice.
Your child's bedroom is the place where he will spend most of his time, so it is very important that he feels comfortable in it. For example, when choosing wallpaper, offer the kid several cards with color options, which are also popular with you personally. But let him make the final choice. Remember: if a child loves his child, he will not want to change anything in it for a long time, and you will be saved from unnecessary trouble!
