The good news is, you don’t need to compromise style to create a child-friendly space. A high-traffic space for the kids needs to be safe and fun to look at, as well as a comfortable zone for both children and their parents.
If you’re a parent, create a dazzling space for your child’s early years with the help of these fast and fab tips.
Wow with wallpaper.
Wallpapers are a quick and simple way to style a child’s bedroom or playroom. Choose one with a stylish print or design, and little else is required to decorate a space.
Up the fun factor by and bring your child in on the action. Ask them what colors they’d love splashed across their walls. Remember, you’re not limited to traditional pinks and blues.
If your child loves canary yellow crayons, think about incorporating that hue into space.
- Not a fan of wallpaper? Decorate the room with framed paintings of your child’s work. Ensure the frames are out of reach but easily viewable.
- To really get in touch with your imaginative side, ditch the idea of frames and peg paintings on strings across one section of the wall. This is a great way to boost confidence and creativity.
Choose safety first with storage.
Prevent trips and falls by creating storage spaces that will make sure your living area is safe, neat, and always ready for those last-minute play dates.
Our advice? Recycle old jars and baskets, and decorate them with a coat of paint and a little sparkle. Spice up the storage space by sticking with a theme, such as nautical, jungle, or farm.
This will make cleaning up a lot more fun for your child and allow you to teach them organization skills from a young age.
Get creative with carpet.
Soft carpets can ease trips and falls, and they also add a comfortable, homely vibe to space. Opt for a durable and inexpensive carpet but air it out before installation and be sure to clean it regularly to prevent dust build-up.
If carpets are not a viable option for whatever reason, try finding a rug with fun colors or pictures from your child’s favorite movie or book.
