Sometimes as a mom or grandma, it can get a little frustrating when you home is overtaken by little ones. It not that we don’t love having them around with all the incredible energy they create! It’s just that sometimes kid’s rooms can be the only place in your home that isn’t decorated quite to your liking. However, I am here to tell you that you can create a children’s bedroom space that is fun, and stylish too. Read on to find out how.
Kid’s Rooms Can Be Stylish Too!
A fun color scheme
One of the critical things to get right for stylish kid’s rooms is the color scheme. You might choose something modern and low-key like white, pastels, and grey. Or you may choose something bolder and eye-catching such as white, black, and gold. You can even give their room a vintage vibe by using popular muted colors such as sage green or duck egg blue.
Of course, the idea is that once you have decided on the color scheme that everything in the room in kept to those three colors. This includes most of the soft toys, actions figures and playsets if they are to be displayed. Although, any other colored toys can be kept in closed storage when not in use.
Try not to let items of all different colors creep in though. Keeping to a bedroom scheme is an essential part of making your child’s room stylish. This is because no matter how many toys they have on display or how messy it gets thing seem a little more coordinated and harmonious because of the limited amount of colors.
Plenty of display for toys
Next, what would kid’s rooms be without all of their most prized toys on display? To keep things stylish and practical here it’s essential to think up ways to have such items out.
One way to achieve this is to install some box shelves on one or more walls. Then use these as a tableau were Superman, My Little Pony, some cheap bobblehead figures, and any other favorite items can be set up in a scene. By storing them this way, they will always have a home to be returned to. Something that will help keep the room looking stylish, and create some fun in the room as well.
In fact, you can even take this idea further and transform shelving units into playhouses, or locations for your kids’ toys. A super easy way of doing this is to use a four cube unit and dress each space as if it was a different room in a house or building. You can even hang a curtain over the front that compliments the rest of the room to ensure it stays as stylish and tidy as possible. The kids will love it!
Of course, it’s not just the kids’ toys that need a space to be kept in. All of their other stuff as well such as clothes, shoes, and books needs space too. With this in mind, it can be useful to get a little smart with your storage solutions.
For example, a bunk bed with stairs that have inbuilt draws like you can get at this furniture website is a great way of combining storage with something useful. Also, built-in storage units that cover the wall, and leave space for a bed can be a fantastic way of ensuring there is enough space for everything. It also maximizes the area of the room left to play in.
You can even get super creative and make storage crates. These should be in line with the theme of the room such as pirate chests, or horse troughs. Your imagination’s the only limit here!
Lastly, wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a way that you could limit the amount of mess and clutter you kids make, while also providing them with a comforting space in which to relax? Well, there is. All you need to do is include an enclosed area within their room.
Such a space can be anything that you or they like. Popular choices include teepees, curtained off cabin beds, playhouses built from wood, or comfy reading nooks filled with pillows. Many of these things are available ready made too and can easily be installed in your kid’s room.
