Interior Design: Enhancing Your Kid’s Bedroom
One of the more challenging interior design areas of the home is the kid’s bedroom. Most parents would include their children in decision-making when it comes to their rooms, especially the room’s color scheme. Great care should be taken to ensure that the interior design plan fulfills its purpose.
Color Choices Suited for Kids
By their experience, interior design practitioners are expected to know which is best for a design purpose. But as the owner of your house and parent of your kids, you know in reality that the final best say on color in a kid’s bedroom is the child himself or herself. An experienced interior design professional knows that it pays to listen to their “little client.” And why not? One cardinal rule in interior design is adapting the design to the user’s preferences. In the case of child’s bedroom, it is wise for a designer to recommend suitable color combinations or schemes that will make the kid’s room a place he will want to be, whether to sleep, to play or to study.
Adapting for Transitions
Of course, kids will grow up. Certainly, you would not wish for the room color to be changed so quickly. To address this age transition, you may seek your interior designer’s advice on two-color or two-hue painting for your kid’s walls. You can, for instance, adopt a neutral color for three of the walls and leave one wall as the theme bearer. This way, when children are ready for the shift, you only need to change the paint on the theme wall.
Harmony with Overall Interior Design
The final color scheme chosen for the kid’s bedroom must not only fit your kid’s personality and tastes. The color must also harmonize with the overall interior design of your home. This is to say that if you chose a traditional interior design for your home and the little girl wants her room to be pink, you may opt for a subdued shade of pink and not a bright radiant pink.
Bunk Beds for Shared Bedrooms
If your children’s room is a shared bedroom, you can use double-decked or bunk beds (there are many versions readily available in stores), preferably the toddler-size beds. The twin-decked formats of these beds effectively free horizontal spaces that can accommodate possibly the kids’ study tables and still leave some open space for playing.
Colored Rubberized Tiles for Floor
Your interior design plan should consider the factor of safety. While the kids are still small, try using colored rubber tiles for the room’s flooring to protect the kids from falls while playing. These rubber tiles come in different sizes, shapes and colors, making them adaptable to suit the kids’ color preferences. Interior design consultants like these tiles because they are versatile; they are also washable when they become dirty. When the kids have grown up, you can always remove them and replace them with another interior design concept of your desire.
