Keep reading to know how to decorate a children’s room correctly!
6 mistakes when decorating a children’s room
Misuse of colors
Usually, when we think of the little ones, color is one of the first things that comes to mind. And yes, in a way it’s good that their room has color. But don’t overdo it! It is better to opt for more neutral and less perishable shades in time. Also, don’t overdo it so that you don’t over stimulate him or her at bedtime. Pastel tones will always be the best choice.
Forgetting about their growth
Maybe we’ll see a nice, cool bed for our son or daughter’s room. But of course, it’s small and it won’t last long either. Do you really want to spend all that money for such a short time? Remember, he or she’ll grow up, so when you buy furniture and decorative items, make sure they hold up.
Allow live with disorder
Yes, we know they are children and just because they are children they are usually messy. Toys, pencils, dolls… It’s most common for a child’s room to be a case. But it’s one thing for them to be messy when they’re playing, another to be messy all the time. Is that the best solution? A shelf with boxes in which they can store everything once they’ve finished playing with it. They have to learn to pick up, too!
Having too many things in a room is not advisable either, as they make it untidy and distract children. Better a few and well chosen things than many things everywhere. Besides, this way you teach them not to accumulate and Marie Kondo will thank you for it.
Not protecting the walls
When they’re little, you know. One day they’ll use the wall as a canvas and the next day they’ll throw something against it. So, the best thing we can do is to protect it. How? There are several options such as lining a wall with a slate so they can paint on it, lining it with some nice washable paper (which besides being something aesthetic will help prevent damage to the wall), or putting a baseboard at half height.
Do not put carpets
In their early years children usually spend most of their time on the floor. This is certainly a good reason to put down comfortable, warm carpets for children to play on.
