Make decorating your child’s room a fun activity with these handy tips
Your child’s room is potentially the most chaotic space in the house. With the right kind of storage solutions and a few decorating tips, you can reduce the anarchy in your toddler’s room.
1. Organisation is the key to keeping any room clean. Setup the room in a way that encourages independent clean-up
2. Combat storage issues with open shelves, containers without lids or inexpensive laundry baskets. Colour code these to make it
easier to sort the toys
3. Decorate with theme based inexpensive decorations, stickers, etc, which can be changed as kids grow up and grow out of them
4. Hanging a canopy over the bed (even if it’s a floor bed) gives it a cosier appearance
5. Use neutral colours on walls and furniture so bedsheets, drapes and accessories can keep changing and adapting to your child’s
6. Bright colourful interlocking foam mats with pictures or alphabets are easily available and make for great floor covering to prevent
scrapes and bruising while playing
7. Scribble walls coated with chalkboard paint can help channelise creative energies
8. Create a collage of their drawings/ paintings by installing softboards on a wall or cupboard front. You can even get their works
framed and decorate their headboards with it
9. A well-lit room ensures healthy eyes. If natural light is not abundant, ensure enough lighting provisions are made in the room
10. Ensure you place a night lamp in their room so they can find their way to the bathroom easily in the middle of the night
Never worry about kids ruining walls with their scribbles ever again. Use some chalkboard paint over a wall to give your kids a giant scribbling pad to let their creativity flow freely.
Wall stickers, rugs and bean bags are effective ways to introduce some decorative elements into your kid's room. Stickers can be replaced over time as your child grows out of them.
Use trays, bins and baskets to store toys, games and art supplies in your little one’s room. Wooden crates and laundry baskets too, make for a good storage option. Open shelves are your best friend, as it makes storing and retrieval easy. I
Don’t skip the night light in your child’s bedroom. It will help him/her reach the bathroom safely if they wake up in the middle of the night.
