A lot of people like to talk about their childhood. That’s because many good memories are created during their childhood days. What wouldn’t anyone give just to go back in time and re-live the fun moments of your younger days?
You may not be able to go back to being a child again, but you can still definitely enjoy the feel of childhood through your children if you have any. Decorating their room and making it child-friendly will also give you the shared joy of childhood.
Here are some things you can do:
- Get your child’s input
It is important to ask your child what his ideas are to make sure that he will be happy with how the changes will turn out. Are there physical activities he enjoys? What does he want to see in his room? Of course the ultimate decision is still in your hands, but your child’s input will make this a good bonding activity for both of you.
- Choosing colors
Most children love the bright colors with good contrast. Blue and white is a good combination for boys and pink and white for girls. If your aim for your child’s room is to make it feel kiddie, then avoid dark colors and metal fixtures. Stick with bright and fun wall paint or wallpaper.
- Choosing bed sheets
Children love fun bed sheets, covers and pillows. Choosing bed sheets for your child is easy. Just find out what cartoons they like and buy one with those cartoon characters. In the past few years, Elsa from frozen is the favorite among girls. When kids sleep happy, they wake up happy.
Decorations are definitely subjective. Children like different things—once child may want a sponge bob plush toy and another may want a Disney character. It is important to get your child’s input. What you have to be aware of is that many decorations from other countries may contain toxic materials. Make sure to look for safe toys and decorations by visiting consumer group websites.
- Play stuff
Children love to play and they often go to play grounds to run around, climb stuff and sit on the swing. But what you may not know is that you can actually have some playground stables inside your kids room to encourage physical activities. Some good ideas are:
- Playhouse inside their room
- A bean bag, tent
- A small swing
- A climbing wall
- A basketball hoop
If you’re working with an interior designer, ask for 3D rendering services and show it to your child. Their reaction will tell you whether they would love their future bedroom.
