Right deco for your house - for the kids room
When you build or buy a new house, everyone is equally excited, starting from your parents to your little ones. While decorating and choosing the interior and furnishing of the house, do not neglect the kid's room, as their safety and comfort are of utmost importance. Their room should be lively enough to make them happy and relaxed. So, you must be wondering what’s the big deal in choosing the decor for your house, especially for the children’s room.
Here are some key notes to keep in mind, while going furniture hunting and other accessories for your bundles of joy.
No waiting to decorate
Usually, people tend to put on hold the decoration of the kids’ room, till the children reach a certain age. It usually happens because you tastefully decorate the space with so many efforts and the children may possibly destroy things while playing games indoor such as cricket or basketball, which would hit valuable show pieces and break them. But, the best part of home décor is let them enjoy their childhood with a little sense of ownership of the place they stay. Decide the colour of their room with them, and explain how beautiful it would look, if they won’t spoil it by scribbling on it with their crayons or pen. Ask them what specific thing they would like to decorate their wall with or any superman bed sheet or cushions for their bed etc.
A fuss-free space
Choose a comfortable and clean-lined look for the kids’ room home décor and strategically style it. Don’t keep fabric covered tables in their room, their tug of war would let everything crash on the floor. Go for contemporary or vintage items around the kids’ corner, they are capable of surviving the attacks of the kids. Choose practically, what is suitable for the little ones.
Experiment with colour, pattern, or texture
Choose vibrant colours, different patterns and soothing texture Get them ready for camouflaging the inevitable spills, innumerable fingerprints and various mishaps which extend to the floors and walls and not just on furniture. Go for rugs with darker hues and rich pattern. Choose bit darker colours for the walls, as large surfaces tend to make the shade little lighter.
Sturdy materials and finishes
The room needs to withstand the mischiefs of the kids, so go for sturdy and quality products in whatever you buy for their home décor. Choose floors which are easy to clean with a damp cloth and preferably antiskid ones, as kids won’t get hurt even if they skid and fall. The curtains of their rooms should be dark enough to protect harsh sunlight and light enough to light up the room to move around even without electric light. Place their books and gadgets in a safe trunk or cupboards, in order to minimise the clutter and allow more space for the kids to play.
Scrimping on furniture is a bad idea
It is wise to invest in sturdy furniture for the kids’ room, but make sure to have them with rounded off edges. Sharp edges mean you would often find the little ones with bruises and black eyes, either while running around or falling, or retrieving something from under the table. If possible get tables which have shelves with doors so that they hold books, shoes, toys and other knickknacks of the children. Hardwood furniture which is kiln dried offers a better option to stand against the constant attacks of the children, without hurting them. Cushions should be sewed in to avoid pillow fights.
