How to decorate my child’s room

Written by MK Kids Interiors

Yesterday at our ‘Coffee Afternoon Design talk’, I had the opportunity to speak to parents about their child’s rooms.  One parents concern was getting her daughter to ‘love home’ and not always wanting to go out. I could relate to her little girl because I love going out especially when then sun is shining.

I thought I would share a few tips on how to make your child’s room special for them. If your child is old enough to make choices I am encouraging you to sit with your child and work this out. Children love responsibilities and being part of the process of decorating their room is important in empowering your child.

A room your child loves

1)     List the colours and the things your child loves.  Does he/she like numbers, shapes, cars, dolls?

2)      With your child choose a neutral or subtle colour for the walls, and get it painted. Don’t worry too much if your child is choosing bright colours. Direct your child back to subtle, after all your child must be able to sleep in the room at night.

3)      Choose a wall for a piece or pieces of artwork. Get a large stretched canvas and some paint, give it to your child to get creative. This will be their master piece – something they will be proud of.

4)      This about how you can create some sort of hide-away or tent in the room. Children love playing hide and seek and their imaginations are wild, so get wild with them.

5)      Be sure to incorporate shelving that will display their books and toys and can be accessed by your child.

6)      Use wall stickers that can be removed later, when your child grows out of them. Buy colourful accessories such as bean bags, cushions, and remember the toys on display adds to the colour in the room, so you may not have to go crazy on accessories.
