Make it Timeless
Kids are fickle. Just because they LOVE unicorns now doesn’t mean that they will in 6 months. This is why it’s a good idea to make the basis of the room design something fairly neutral. So, before you get carried away with murals of rainbows and unicorns, it’s important to think about the long term style of the room.
Simple wall colors and classic furniture can easily be accented by removable wall transfers, lighting, pillows, and other pieces that give the room a sense of style without sticking too closely to a specific theme. By keeping the foundation neutral, your child’s interests can be reflected through easily interchangeable items that won’t eat up a lot of your time when your child is ready to replace them.
Organization is a Priority
One of the most important considerations for the design of your child’s bedroom is how to organize their belongings. Between clothes, books, toys, and materials for their hobbies and school work, organization is a key style element. Making sure they have adequate space for storage will keep their room looking neat and put together no matter what their ever-changing preferences are.
Investing in a large bookshelf that can store more than just books is a great way to keep things organized without opting for a childish looking toy chest. There are a variety of baskets available that can be used for storing literally anything while being neutral enough to avoid having to buy new ones when your child decides that they now hate the vibrant green they were once obsessed with.
While it’s great to want your child’s room to be a reflection of their personality, it can be time consuming to keep up with. By choosing a simple foundation you and your child will have more freedom to experiment with accent pieces that reflect their interests without investing a lot of time or money into them.
