8 ways to decorate kids’ rooms

8 ways to decorate kids’ rooms

When it comes to furnishing and decorating kids’ rooms, your canvas is pretty wide. So, let loose your creativity and help contribute to spaces that your children will love growing up in. And while you’re at it, always remember that the trick to decorating well, lies in creating spaces that evolve with your child.

Take a look at my  tips and ideas on decorating kids’ rooms and building happy and productive spaces for them.

  1. Paint is in

When in doubt, bring out that pot of paint. Paint is the most common yet effective way to bring change. And your child’s room is no different. Witness how a change in paint colour lends instant chutzpah. And before you think that paint only works on walls, think again. You can give old furniture, storage boxes and truckloads of other objects a new lease of life and help transform your children’s rooms without breaking the bank.

  1. Bring on the wallpaper

If paint seems like too much hard work, you always have wallpaper. From animal prints to geometric patterns, polka dots and beyond for their bedrooms or play areas, you can choose from an eclectic assortment of designs. Even wall stickers and decals are an excellent alternative to wallpaper. They’re easy to both apply and remove, and the effects are amazing. If you want to encourage your child’s creativity, we love the idea of a chalkboard wall.

  1. Accessorise with patterns

An easy decorating hack for your child’s room is to use patterned accessories.  It makes the space look cohesive and in sync. We love this corner for its tranquil colour palette and how well the accessories complement each other.

  1. Think interesting storage

Pique your child’s interest by opting for fun storage solutions. Transform a wall with an array of colourful boxes doubling up as shelving units. Or, you could put together playful storage hooks for hanging their clothes and other items.  What about seating spaces that double up as storage? Now that’s super cool! Also, stock up on toy boxes and bags so that tidying up is easy.

  1. Coordinate your fabrics

In shared rooms, a bunk bed is an excellent option to not only save floor space, but to also ensure that your children feel like they have their own privacy. What you can do to decorate a space like this is coordinate fabrics. Matching bedspreads, pillows…get the drift?

  1. Keep it happy

Always remember that like us, kids love a little bit of adventure especially when it comes to their play areas. Make play-time more memorable with the inclusion of a play tent, a quirky enclosure, or a cosy niche that will love crawling inside. Also, don’t forget to make it extra comfortable by loading up on cushions and soft toys!

We’ve also got some interesting and insightful decorating advice from Maren Gerber, Managing Owner at Marmarland, Dubai

 She says:

  1. Invest in furniture that grows with your child: You get much more value for money if you buy furniture which can be used for many years. For example buy a baby cot, which can be changed into a toddler bed. Another idea is to look beyond products specially made for children. There are many “adult” products, which work really well in children’s rooms.
  1. Don’t aim for a “perfect” kid’s room. Mix and match different colours and textures by adding knick-knacks and memorabilia. This will add character to the room and make it unique.  Keep in mind that you are going to spend a lot of time here with your child.

Also keep in mind that when with children, you must look for ways to child-proof your home.

Here are 7 quick tips on ways to child-proof your space

1. Opt for furniture with softer edges

2.  Secure drawers and cabinets, especially those that are at a lower level in your kitchen.

3. Install a window guard.

4. Supervise their art and colouring sessions.

5. Keep all glassware, cutlery and crockery stowed out of reach

6. Ensure that your TV is mounted and that your dishwashers, ovens and all other equipment are locked and impenetrable.

7. Always remember to keep your medicines and pills locked safely away
