Designing and decoration the kids room is one of the most fun things to do in the house. In the children’s room, there are less limits to imagination, and a wide range of interior design ideas to use. It’s lots of fun to choose the colorful wallpapers, rugs and artwork, but what about the furniture? Buying children’s furniture can be a complicating thing, since the room doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to your children. And children have some different needs and wishes concerning their room’s interior design and decoration. Here are three tips to help you out.
1- Use multifunctional furniture to save space
Usually the kids room is not one of the largest rooms, and a child has many needs. This means that the furniture should serve many functions. You can try to choose headboards that can also be used as bookcases, or toy chests that can also be used as seats. You can buy a bunk bed or you can choose a bed that has trundle drawers, so you can keep some of the clutter out of sight.
2- Don’t forget the importance of safety
Buy furniture that is safe and that won’t break off easily. You should be able to use this furniture for a long time although the children use it roughly. Check the rails on the bunk beds, and check to see if the ladders are safely fastened. The paint of the furniture should not contain lead. If you decide to paint your furniture, you should choose water based paint.
3- Check the furniture styles
Once you know which pieces you are going to buy, decide on what the style should be for your kids room. There are many different furniture types for different age groups. How long will your child/children be using this furniture? If your child wants a certain theme furniture, will he change his mind in a short time? Are you ready to afford new ones when necessary? If you are worried about budget issues, try not to choose a furniture style that your child will outgrow quickly. If you don’t want to take risks, choose neutral colors and add the other colors and patterns with inexpensive accessories later on.
Once you have chosen the right furniture, decorate the room with rugs, bedding and toys that your kids will adore. Don’t forget to add decorative touches that reflect your kid’s personality and develop your interior design ideas accordingly.
