Bedrooms are special places for children. It’s where their toys, their stories and a whole lot of growing up is done. So it is important to make sure that your child feels comfortable in their room. Here are a few tips on how to do up your child’s room:
1. Story corner
Books make the world go round. Every child needs a reading nook. Pick a corner with good lighting, or maybe get a little reading lamp, throw some floor cushions around and of course stack up on books. Almost like a little escape corner to Narnia and Oz and all kinds of wonderlands.
2. Storage spaces
It’s never too early to teach your kids how to put things away. Get shelves that are easily accessible to them so that they can learn how to tidy up. Furlenco has some lovely choices on furniture for just this very purpose.
3. The wall of imagination
Okay, so you don’t have to call it that but the idea of it counts. Leave one wall empty, so that your child can fill it in with whatever he or she wants. Whether they are scribbles or paintings, it is important to help your child learn how to be proud of their creativity.
4. Wall art
An easy way to bring more life into your kids’ bedroom is to go for the walls. Whether it is blocked colours or patterns, you can even let your kids decide what they would like. Pops of bright colours help liven up the room quite a bit. A room with as much energy as your child.
5. Tiny chairs
It’s no fun for a child to have to sit in a grown-up’s chair. Why should they anyway? Get little stools or comfy little armchairs for your child. You can keep it in a corner of the room. The stools will come in handy because they’ll be small enough for kids’ to drag around the room and use it as they please.
