When you want to decorate your child’s room, it’s important to keep the decoration kid-friendly. As you search homes for sale and picture your own children living in one of the bedrooms, you are on your way to finding a home that you’ll love.
Look for Furniture with Rounded Edges
Harsh, sharp edges are an accident waiting to happen when you have young kids. Consider furniture that doesn’t use sharp edges and don’t be afraid to try something less traditional in your kid’s room.
Think Fabrics That are Washable
While fabric can be great in your kid’s room, make sure that anything you use is easy to wash. Pay attention to the colors and patterns you use as well. Brightly colored fabric in a variety of patterns works well and will hide stains.
Go Beyond Basic Pink and Blue
Even though a pink or blue bedroom for you may be cute in the beginning, this can be quickly outgrown. Try more gender-neutral colors instead and you will find that the decor in the room lasts longer because it is more versatile.
Use Hard Flooring with Throw Rugs
Children are messy. As you decorate their room, consider staying away from wall to wall carpeting. Your child may get this carpet stained fast and you’ll be stuck with it. Use hard flooring that is easy to clean instead and use plenty of throw rugs to keep the flooring comfortable for your young children.
As you prepare your child’s room, keep in mind their style and interests. If your child is older, ask their opinion on the decor. Don’t be afraid to go beyond the basics and try neutral colors for your child instead of pink or blue.
