Designing a child’s room is like going to space. It sounds relatively easy in the beginning but then you realize, that well, you were wrong; very wrong. Designing rooms for adults is easy. They already know what they want, most of the time they already have everything worked out. So if you ask them for how they want their bedroom to look, you will able to get a very good idea as to what to do with the design. Children on the hand are very imaginative and while they have an idea of what they would want, it may not be practical or just very difficult to implement.
So how do you design a child’s bedroom with ease?
Well let me tell you what you can do.
Incorporate what they already own into the new design
Who are we kidding? Designing a kid’s room will take time and be difficult. But unless you are designing a newly built room and the child owned absolutely nothing before, try to incorporate what they already own into the design. This would be easier than searching for new things to use and more meaningful too. This doesn’t mean you have to only use what they already own, you can buy watercolor art prints for sale for wallpapers, if you want. However don’t be afraid to use what the child already owns. If they already own a perfectly good bed, then include that in your design. There is no need to custom build or buy a new bed where there is a perfectly usable one already. So if you want a white washed effect, you could just pay for the present bed to be white washed. It’s not just the larger furniture that you use in your design; you can be creative with smaller items they own too.
If the child has a collection of shells that they don’t mind parting with, you can use that in the design. Maybe let the child make crafts with it that can be used to give the room more character. The frame from a poster or painting that’s heading to the trash ca be salvaged, painted and hung on the wall to bring attention to any wall deco. If you are planning to buy kids wallpaper online, then you can go for a plain white one with anti-stain properties, and allow the child to paint their wallpaper however they want. That way the wall will be interactive, they can use up paints they already have and make the wall more than just a simple wall. It could be a huge canvas for them to paint, erase and then paint again. In the end finding creative ways to incorporate what is already available is rewarding and easy. So next time you want to save some time and do so in a manner, where the design stands to benefit a lot. Just look at what is already there for some inspiration.
