Kid’s Bedrooms Posted On 03 September 2021

How to design a Space they’ll love and use

 

Designing your child’s bedroom is a fun task. The possibility to explore colour, pattern and design seems so much broader than a design for an adult’s room. There is more to the process that initially meets the eye if you want to create a space which your child loves, and which helps them to grow physically and mentally.

Setting up a small desk area will probe useful when they want a space to draw and colour when they’re young and will later transform into a workspace for homework or revision. An adjustable chair such as one from ‘Tripp Trapp’ can be adjusted as your child grows. It will also ensure your child can have an optimum seating position when at their desk – something which is key when children are developing. Children should be looking forwards, their upper arms should be close to the body, feet on a flat surface and their backs supported.

Lighting is also key as proper lighting will help your child to retain good eyesight. Natural light is the best whilst a warm, white light is suitable when the sun goes down. Having a small lamp on their desk is also useful when studying. Depending on the age and emotional needs of your child, you may also want to consider using a night light in the room.

Colour selection can be used to enhance their sleep, concentration and comfort. Soothing colours help to create calming atmosphere, allowing their bedrooms to become a sanctuary for them. Having a super bright room, covered in patterns might be over stimulating and could mean it is harder for your child to settle down and rest. Similarly, choosing neutral colours means that your child won’t out-grow the room. Just because they’re currently obsessed with Paw Patrol doesn’t mean they’ll always want their rooms to be adorned with it. That said, clever decoration can expand their imaginations and creativity. A blackboard wall easily created using blackboard paint can be changed often and cries out for an expression of creativity. World maps look great in rooms for all ages and allows them to plan travel and adventures.

Finally, always create different zones within the room. Have a separate area for playing, reading and sleeping. Get the input of your child when designing the room, consider using wall art to showcase their current obsession as this can easily be updated or changed as their likes and dislikes change.
