Children’s Room Designs That Will Transition From the Toddler Stage to the Teenager Stage
Letting a child help decorate their own room provides them with a chance to express their personality. However, no matter their preferences, safety should be the first thing you consider when purchasing anything for the room.
Start by planning the basics for the room. First, choose a background color, furniture and the accessories you’d like to use as your focal point. Keeping the vision of the room in mind will help keep your efforts on the right track. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t add lots of creativity into the design. If the whole process is fun for your child, in turn, it will be more fun for you, too.
Only follow a trend that will work for you, your home and your child. For instance, fluffy, furry rugs might look great when decorating the room, but they will give you a hard time when cleaning.
• Get creative with accessories
To introduce a new trend, use accessories to create the look instead of purchasing costly themed type of furniture. Accessories are much easier to switch out as your child ages.
• Avoid buying a twin bed
It is very important to always think ahead to accommodate future needs of your child and the future needs of the room. Buy at least a full size bed if your room is large enough. Since most bedrooms today are usually larger, it is better to move your toddler from a crib into a queen size bed when the time comes.
Often when a child starts college, their room is converted into an office or even a guest room. So consider including shelves, bookcases, display cabinets, and desks for an easier transition. Shelving provides your child a place to display their items in the room, even when they live in a dorm.
