Your child’s bedroom is the area in which he will be spending most of his time, so it’s critical that he feel at home in the space. In her book, “Room for Children: Stylish Spaces to Sleep and Play”, author Susanna Salk reiterates the importance of compromising. She suggests reminding your children that, while their rooms are their own space, they are also part of the house as a whole. Don’t be afraid to be clear about the areas that you are open to discussing and which may be non-negotiable. But keep in mind that the better your child feels about his or her space, the more likely it will be taken care of in the long run.
In any design project, there are a few areas that you want to stand the test of time – floor coverings, furniture pieces, and paint colors. Instead of using these things to make a statement – such as the painting the walls of a baby’s room a pastel pink or blue – choose an option that has staying power. Pick paint colors that are warm and inviting, classic finishes for your furniture, and floor coverings that are universal. Where neutrality is concerned, price is a good rule to follow. If the item you are purchasing costs a significant amount of money, make sure that it won’t feel outdated in a short amount of time. Leave incorporating trendy décor to items that you won’t mind replacing when they go out of style.
Double-duty furniture is ideal, especially when looking to transition a room from a space that is fit for an infant into one that is ready for a child. Think outside the idea of a standard changing table and purchase a desk or dresser that can be fitted with a padded changing mat. This way, you can use the changing table while you need it, but your child has a ready-made space to do her homework once she starts school. Similarly, when it’s time to start shopping for a bed, look for one that has built-in storage underneath. The storage will help the room stay looking crisp and clean while also giving you extra options to put away a never-ending supply of toys.
