One of the greatest joys of having a child is decorating his or her room. You get to pick out a theme, decide upon colors, shop for furniture and accessories together – and not only are you decorating the room, you’re also bonding with your child! Sometimes, though, parents make the mistake of just putting a very basic theme and using minimalist furniture. That doesn’t work – not only will your child be unhappy with the room, but the room itself will be devoid of character. What you need to do is sit down with your child, and figure out ways to fill the room with character and personality. All it needs is creativity and imagination!
One good way to add personality to a room is by deciding upon a suitable theme that will show vitality and creativity. Now you have many different kinds of themes available for boys’ and girl’s rooms, so there are various ways you can play around with the kid’s room decor. Once the theme is selected, reinforce it through wall murals, wall decals and kid’s wall stickers. Select the room’s furniture carefully- choose items that will match the theme, and make certain you’re choosing the furniture wisely. Select good brands, if possible, do your research to get information about the latest trends in construction and use of materials.
Decide on top-quality brands; if possible, research the latest trends in construction and materials. Doing your homework will help you make sure that you’ve made a good buy. Use nice vibrant colors – it adds tremendous character and personality to a kid’s room decor. Colors and hues can change your mood dramatically – depending upon the shades used, your child will feel calm and soothed, or energetic and full of vitality. Walls nowadays can be painted virtually any color under the sun, so if your son wants to paint his entire room brown because he likes the color – don’t shush him. Use creativity and imagination, and perhaps a little textured paint – we guarantee that the room will look stunning!
Discover your own and your child’s personal style, as well as your child’s likes and dislikes. Use items of your son or daughter’s liking. If he likes bicycles, have kid’s wall stickers of bicycles on a certain area of the wall. If she likes clowns, go for a wall mural of clowns. Really, anything’s possible! Think about what inspires you, and what inspires your child. Pay heed to your child’s suggestions, and give them priority- after all, it’s your child’s room. Add more spirit and atmosphere to the room by having a bulletin board in one corner, to pin-up and display your kid’s creative artwork. Display photo-frames, and framed pictures around the room – to enhance the sense of personal touch. Frame pictures of the family, of pets, even of his or her friends. And you can help build your child’s self-esteem by keeping a picture of your child in the rooms!
Do a little experimentation for a unique and stunning look. If you can go for beanbags and cushions, why go for boring styles of furniture? If you can get lamps in many different styles and colors, why go for plain looking lamps? Look around, do some window-shopping, do some research, give your child a free hand too, and you will find out exactly what you both will like. With more effort towards creativity and imagination, your kid’s room decor will be a beautiful one- that exudes personality!
