The goal of every parent is to create a home that is suitable for their child, both in functionality and in style. And when it comes to interior decor, it is common for new mothers and fathers to go the extra mile when designing a space that their kid(s) will love.
While it’s all part of ‘growing up’, children are notorious for changing their room preferences and styles quite often. However, we’ve gathered 5 bedroom decor tips that you can use to help your child grow into their space.
Keep the walls neutral:
In the wake of a more gender neutral approach, parents are now leaning towards other color options for their children’s bedrooms. Ditch the conventional pink and blue walls and opt for neutral colors that never grow old, such as beige, cream, ivory, white, grey, brown and natural wood.
Pick timeless furniture:
Instead of purchasing furniture that are designed to make bold statements – choose an option that has staying power. A bed that’s shaped like a race car is great for a 7-year-old, but when he’s 13, it’s going to be time to buy new furniture.
Buy beds, tables and chairs that are warm and inviting, with classic finishes and floor coverings that are universal enough to match.
Add some personality with little accessories:
You may not be able to tell your children’s personal style until later on in their adolescence, but that doesn’t mean that you should devoid their bedroom of any kind of personality.
Feel free to throw in some child friendly decor that can easily be replaced as they grow older, such as clocks, paintings, stuffed animals and pillows.
