Tips for Designing Kids' Rooms

Tips for Designing Kids' Rooms

If you’re a proud new parent, you have probably already noticed that kids can be quite messy and out of control as soon as they start walking, so organizing a room for them should be the first step to introducing some organization and discipline in their lives.

Now, when it comes to organizing a kids’ room, what you have to pay attention to first and foremost would be safety, so no pointy objects, sharp edges, and holes in the floor they can twist their ankles in.  

At the same time, you don’t want to make the place look like one of those cushioned rooms they put crazy people in, so adding in some exciting colors and toys into the mixture is a must, too.  

In this article, we’re going to propose to you a couple of tips you can use for designing your kids’ rooms. As you will see, these are mostly common sense, so if you follow them, you can rest assured you’ll be able to make your kids’ room look good no matter how talented or not talented you are for design.   

Here are the deal folks. 

Coming up with a Plan  

Just as it would be the case with any other designing and decorating task, having a clear plan in mind is always a good start.  

You see, changing your mind in the middle of a designing session tends to throw in a major spanner in the works of your undertaking, not to mention the increases in the costs of the project that are bound to spring up if you were to change something halfway there. 

Here’s another thing – the plan doesn’t need to be too detailed, but what does matter is that you’re aware of how much space you’re working with, how tall is the ceiling and what sort of pieces of furniture you want to incorporate in the room. Also, picking the color for the walls and the furniture and any possible wall art you may want to throw in there too would be easier if you decided on it before you got to work.  

Figure Out the Storage 

Even though kids typically don’t have too many objects they need to take care of, it’s still important to install a couple of pieces of storage furniture in their room. 

Chances are, of course, that it will be you who will be picking up the toys and their clothes and storing them away in these cupboards and footlockers for the first couple of years, but as long as these are present in their room, your kids will gradually learn to use them on their own when they get a bit bigger. 

Another thing that we should mention here would be that you should pay attention to protect any potentially sharp edges on these items, as well as cover up the electrical sockets, so they don’t stick their fingers in them.  

Add Kid-Friendly Art  

While painting the walls in cheery colors, so to speak, can be an excellent way to make the room more kid-friendly, what you also may want to do is add some wall art, too. Also, you can hang up a couple of those decorations that go rotate and make the kids fall asleep easier.  

Another great way to make the rooms more fun would be to hang crayon drawings your kids made. This way, you can measure their art progress and make them proud of their early artistic pursuits, while making the room more colorful.  

Add Toys 

No kids’ room is complete without toys. 

Tips for Designing Kids

So, depending on your kids’ affinities, you can get them a bunch of toy trucks, dolls, toy tools, ponies, teddy bears, trains, and whatever else your kids may be interested in. If your kids in their infinite wisdom venture to replicate a train wreck or a train collision with their toys, you can luckily find some model railway supplies online.  

Nowadays, the great thing about toys is that you can order them online and have them shipped at your doorstep.

All in all, designing a kids' room isn't that difficult if you go in with a plan and you pay close attention to the safety of the objects inside the room and unleash the full scope of your creativity when it comes to the color schemes and the art in the room.
