Be honest ladies and gents, when you think of decorating your kid’s room, do you think about introducing all of the features you wish it had when you were a kid? If the answer is yes, great, you’re on the right track.
Designing your kid’s bedroom is one of the most fun and rewarding projects you can take up, especially considering the fact how much your little munchkin is going to enjoy spending time in their little cove discovering the world, dreaming up new worlds, and simply being happy.
Here is how you can make your kids room fun, cozy, and educational :
A toy and comic book nook
In a world overburdened with digital technology, where every child over the age of five has their own smartphone or tablet, there is a need to take a step back, and instil some positive values into their hearts and minds. You want to inspire them to dream, play, read, and envision new worlds and possibilities.
In order to support their imagination, you want to introduce some custom shelving above and around their beds. You can put their favorite toys and comic books there, but don’t forget to teach them to put everything back in its place when they’re done.
Fun colors and patterns
With a little time, effort, and imagination, the walls of your kids’ bedroom can depict a true fairytale setting worthy of their favorite Disney movie. Think about what they love to watch, what their obsessions are. Is it dinosaurs, Frozen, The Little Mermaid? Be sure to take the time to carefully paint their favorite scenes on the walls, or hire a professional wall decorator for the job.
A digital cove
There is no escaping the intoxicating allure of modern technology, and you shouldn’t ban your kids from enjoying the pleasures of video games and computers in general. While you should enforce some ground rules concerning social media, you should encourage them to play video games for a couple of hours every day. This will improve their cognitive functions and their motor skills. Plus, it’s super fun.
Fun leisure area
After the little devils have had their share of fun, and just want to take a nap or be lazy for a few hours, you want to discourage them from sleeping in their beds, as you don’t want them to get in the habit of sleeping too much during the day. Instead, think about getting them some comfy kids bean bags for those perfect lazy leisure moments and afternoon naps. Additionally, you can research couches and see if you have enough space for one in your kid’s room. It can be a perfect spot for reading books, playing video games or taking a short nap while watching their favorite cartoons.
Home movie maker for kids
If your kids love watching cartoons all they long, then one of the best things you can do is to give them the opportunity to make their own little movie masterpieces. A little home movie DIY area is the perfect addition to any kids’ room. A flexible camera, some playdough and plenty of watercolors, and you’re all set!
A tiny home laboratory
When it comes to teaching your kids to love learning, making it fun and exciting is imperative. Remember, kids get bored pretty easily, so you want to give them an objective, give them a goal they can work towards. A tiny bedroom laboratory boasting some kids’ science books, a microscope, some vials, a magnifying glass, and a display case where they can put their favorite projects is a great combination.
The little Mozart corner
Finally, you can inspire your kids to love music and even take up an instrument by creating a small music cove where they can keep their instrument, discover new tunes, and try out new and exciting genres. Don’t just limit them to classical music, but let them experiment with all kinds of genres. Who knows, maybe a little Mozart or a new Freddie Mercury is just waiting to break free.
Decorating a kids’ bedroom is a fun and rewarding project that takes a little time, effort, and creativity to come to life. Be sure to use these ideas to make all of your children’s dreams come true.
