Children’s rooms are the time to go big. Take the chance to get creative and go a bit wild because it’s a room that should be a hub of fun and imagination for you child. The kitchen, the living room, the dining room – these are the parent’s room. There is no running, no making a mess, and let’s not get too loud either. But a kid’s room is all their own. Make it a space that is unique and is bursting with personality.
So how do you start? I always recommend starting with furniture because matching the walls to the furniture is always less of a hassle than doing the reverse. This isn’t necessary for kid’s rooms. Feel free to start with picking out the room’s color. If your kids are up to the task, ask them what colors they would like. After all, it is going to be their room.
Instead of solid colored walls, shoot for wall coverings. Even the leader in childhood memories, Disney, knew how well prints work in a child’s bedroom.
Here are a few of our favorite wallpaper prints.
After finishing your walls, then you can decide on the furniture. Let’s move on from the usual bed, dresser, and bookshelf. Child bedrooms and playrooms should have child-sized chairs and tables for them to use for all their little official office needs, but don’t forget about yourself. Squeezing into those little plastic chairs isn’t going to happen, but couches work great as seating for both you and your children to share.
Rocking chairs are also a favorite because they work as both an iconic piece of décor and a bonding tool for your family.
