Many of us remember the feeling when we got to be involved in decorating our own bedroom for the first time. Whether it was the whole room or just a matter of picking a colour, eventually it became our very own little den. A child’s room should stimulate both play and imagination, but at the same time be a place where they can feel safe and recharge their little batteries. Here we’ve put together 10 tips that you can tick off when it’s time to decorate your child’s room. We’ve included examples and clever tips that not only make the child’s room practical and nice to look at, but also inviting and fun to play in.

 

One: storage space

We’ve yet to meet a parent who says “There’s too much storage in our child’s room”. So make sure that, already in the planning stage, you include a variety of storage options when decorating a child’s room. In addition to a classic wardrobe or chest of drawers, you can also include chests, shelves, hooks, cloth bags, and storage boxes. By mixing open and closed storage, larger toys can be used as visible decoration while small items can be kept hidden in a nice box.

To encourage children to help with the cleaning, it’s important that there are storage options within their reach. For instance, you could place some shelves or hooks a little lower, where frequently used toys can be stored. Then you can have some higher ones with the things that aren’t used as often. By having storage bags or smaller boxes, the children can easily carry them around, put in and take out the toys wherever they want to play. 

So, instead of having large storage boxes or tall toy bags, which both take up a lot of floor space and make it difficult for the children to find what’s at the bottom of them, pick several smaller or medium-sized storage options instead. You can then use the walls to hang or stack them on.

Second: the decoration of the children's room.

Instead of using unnecessary ornaments that don’t have any other function, you can use toys. Why not highlight the colour theme of the room by hanging a children’s guitar on the wall in a matching accent colour? If you buy toys in the same range here at Kid’s, you can be sure that the children are not only able to play with everything in the room, but it’ll also look nice together.

Three:How to colour a child’s room.

Colours can both encourage play and give a calming impression, too. Let your child choose one of their favourites and incorporate it into their room, so that it really feels like their own place in the home. However, this doesn’t mean painting all the walls in neon-orange if it’s their favourite colour at that moment. Instead, use the colouring formula “60-30-10” if you want a simple rule of thumb on how to decorate your child’s room:

*60% of the room should consist of a base colour. It’s the colour used on the largest surfaces such as floors, walls, or furniture.

*30% should be in a complementary colour that you can have on carpets, curtains, bedspreads, lamps, and storage, for example.

*10% can be the decorative colour. Here you can, for example, incorporate your child’s favourite colour and use it for pillows, paintings, or toys, for example. This makes it easy to change everything as your child grows and you want to bring in a new style to the room. Another suggestion is to come up with five colours that your child can choose from, so that they feel involved and you reduce the risk of a colour clash.

Four:Sustainable children’s furniture.

Children’s tastes and desires can change as often as adults change socks. That’s why it’s good to have long-lasting, neutral basic furniture. At the same time, it’s important that it lasts for a long time without breaking. If you use wooden children’s furniture for decoration, you can be sure it’ll last so long that even their siblings and younger cousins can inherit it. Choosing FSC-certified® furniture ensures that it was made using sustainable forestry. This is what we call sustainable, both for the environment and for your wallet.

Five: Don't forget the cozy corner.

When they're not being used as a store, castle, or something else exciting, tents or playhouses can provide kids with a cozy and safe place for a while. This is the place to protect themselves when they are overwhelmed or just want to relax with a book. In addition to pillows, blankets, and string lights, you can put books, stuffed animals, or anything else your child likes to cuddle together in the basket or box.
