Decorating a child’s bedroom is loads of fun, and a great way to get creative. You can get a professional decorator to do the honors. However, it will be more interesting and fun if you can do it yourself with some input from your child. Personalize the decoration project to create the best environment for your darling child.

Safety First

The first thing you should keep in mind while decorating a kid’s bedroom is safety. Make sure that all furniture you place in the room or the decorating items you use will not harm the child in any way. So, stay away from glass furniture or items with sharp edges. Paint can contain toxic chemicals, which are potentially harmful for the child. So, choose materials that don’t have such toxic finishes.

Furniture matters

If two kids are sharing a bedroom, you can go for loft beds. This will save you lots of space and give each child a private space. Ensure the loft bed is child safe and sturdily constructed. You can also get a loft bed for a single child. It has a bed on top and an open space at the bottom where you can keep your child’s study table and racks. It is another space-saving option for smaller bedrooms.

Invest in a good dresser cabinet to store all of your child’s clothes and accessories. Set up racks and shelves at the right height, so that the children can use them comfortably. It will also give them a sense of responsibility about maintaining their things and keeping everything at the proper place.

Light it right

Lighting is a very important factor that you should consider while decorating your child’s bedroom. A good mix of ambient and task lighting will help create the right mood. Set up an ambient light to brightly illuminate the room. A small table lamp on the study table will provide proper task lighting. You can also set up a couple of concealed lights or night lamps that can be turned on at night, so the child doesn’t sleep in a pitch-dark room. Such lights create a soft glow that is more soothing than glaring. Another option is to stick glow-in-the dark stickers on the walls and ceiling. You can choose stickers based on the child’s bedroom theme or his/her favorite animation characters.

Let the walls do the talking

Let’s start from the walls. You can dress up the walls of the child’s bedroom in many ways. The simplest and the most common method is to paint the walls. Choose a neutral color that soothes the senses and pepper it up with colorful wall stickers and decals. By doing so, you can create a relaxing ambiance in the room, while still giving the wall a bright touch. If you’re not interested in painting, you can paper the walls. Wallpapers are available in all shades, patterns, and designs and you can choose them based on the bedroom theme. Plus, papering is less expensive and messy compared to traditional painting. You can paint one wall with blackboard paint and convert it into a space where your child can write, draw, or indulge in their scribbling. Or you can paint the lower wall areas of the entire room with blackboard paint and do your painting or papering on the top half of the walls. This way, they will have more space to write and draw.

Create a personal play area

Convert a corner of the room into a play area where your child can organizes his/her toys, games and other knick-knacks. Setting up a play area will encourage the child to indulge in their creative pursuits. This will also help the child understand that play area is for playtime and study area is for study time. By creating two different corners, you can reduce distractions and create a play/study routine.

A final word…

Talk about the decorating ideas with your child before you start on the project. It’s their room, and they will feel happy and involved when you discuss decorating ideas with them. Who knows? Maybe they will come up with ideas that are better than those described by any interior decorator!
