As your little ones grow, their bedrooms will probably require several renovations, after all, their needs are going to change drastically throughout their childhoods.
If your kids are growing up in the blink of an eye, the changes you need to make to their space may have taken you by surprise. There are general design areas that should always be kept in mind; it needs to be comfortable, fun, and of course, practical.
For those of you looking for some inspiration, here are just five fantastic tips for redesigning your child’s bedroom.
Our children grow so quickly, and their tastes change a lot over their childhoods. Therefore, it’s a good idea to create a space for them that you can alter easily.
A good way to make decorating easier in the future is through peel and stick wallpaper such as the options offered by Spoonflower, this way you’ll be able to change their room easily when they fancy something new.
Play is one of the most essential ways that our children learn, and maximising floor space is a great way to give them more room to play. When they have the space to spend time in their rooms, it will really start to feel like their own, a sanctuary when they need time alone. With built-in storage space such as those created by Sharps, you’ll be able to keep their rooms tidy while still giving them more space to play.
Sleep is one of the most important things for a growing child, so the biggest priority for your child’s bedroom should be comfort. Ensuring that they have a comfortable place to sleep is essential, and finding the right mattress for their bed is an important decision.If you’re not sure where to start, the experts at Archers Sleep Centre have a wide range of children’s beds and mattresses, and their team can give you all the advice that you need to choose the right brand for your family.
For older children and teenagers, having a workspace where they can complete their homework and revise for their exams will allow them the alone time they need to concentrate.
If you have the space to do so, dedicate one of the corners to study, provide them with a desk and a bookcase, and consider lighting that will aid concentration – either placing their desk by a window so they can benefit from natural light, or utilising bulbs that mimic natural light for their lamps.
Finally, if you want to create a space that your children love, then it’s important to get them involved. Of course, you might have to veto any particularly outlandish requests – our little ones have the imaginations that make them very good at asking for things that would never even have crossed our minds!
However, be sure to indulge all of their more reasonable requests, after all, this is their space and it’s important that they feel comfortable there.
