Kids see the world from a different perspective. Their curiosity combined with their vibrant nature makes them the little Einsteins for their impish world.
Their rooms are the little wonderlands for kids. When you ask your little one, how do you want to decorate your room? You will get some interesting and elaborate answers, mostly inspired by some superhero movie or Kung-Fu cartoon character. However, their fantasies change with every new movie they watch or game they play. So you have to step up your game and think of a functional and creative way to decorate your kids’ room in a way that they cherish for years to come. (Quite a tall order, right!)
Although it sounds quite cool and exciting, decorating a kid’s room takes a lot of thought. But don’t fret! We have got you covered. Here are some fascinating kid’s room decor ideas straight from our precious archives of room decor.
Pro-tip: If you want to decorate your little one’s room like a pro, channel your kidsy-spirit. For starters, think of the wardrobe as an outlet to a make-believe world. And there you go!
Keep It Low Key
We are talking about kids here, who don’t need high-end furniture to cheer up. Sometimes all it needs is a simple toy car to make them feel highly elated. So the best approach towards kid’s room decor is minimalism. They can get all distracted and confused with a jumble of stuff and furniture so keep it low-key.
Keep the furnishing to the minimum to provide plenty of open floor space for them to play. A floor-level bed with comfy carpet will create an exclusive play area for your kid. Incorporate some wall shelves to serve as a toy or accessories holder. This minimalist approach will also help you to update the decor as your kid grows according to his all-new inclinations.
It’s All Magical Inside!
Kids have a unique, mystical understanding of the world. (thanks to the fantasy movies and cartoons!) So you will definitely score some appreciations from kids if you add a pinch of magic to their little world. It’s quite easy! Just get some fairy lights and the famous glow-in-the-dark ceiling stars and turn their room into a whole new galaxy of adventures. You can enhance the enchanting experience by adding a charming canopy to the bed.
Put Playtime First!
Kids are imaginative and find amusement in the otherwise boring tasks. (watch them play cooking and cleaning games and you will know!) It’s, therefore, necessary to provide them with enough space to make a mess (it’s a learning process, so don’t panic!). The best approach is to section the space off creatively.
Add a small study table and a lamp to create some room for studies. The bed part to make a resting space and another portion to show the toy collection off. Use curtains to create portions. You can go for a house-framed bed to give the home-sweet-home vibe and top it off with some stuffed animals.
Encourage Order With Decor
Usually, kids are the owners of a lot of stuff (and still they want another toy whenever you stop by a market). From toys to games and books to clothes, they have a huge collection of belongings. All this can create a mess so here is a way to encourage order and organization in kids.
Use the room to add storage spaces as much as possible. Put superhero hooks on the wall and make it a game to hang the used clothes there. Add colorful book rails and name them the “book warriors” (or anything that sounds cool to the kids) so the kid finds it amusing to put the books there. Use the space under the bed for storing the toys. Furniture with built-in storage compartments is also a great pick to double up storage. Name each compartment and encourage the kids to put the things back in place.
Play With Colors
Colors attract kids. So you can work your way through different color combinations to decorate your kid’s room. The choice of the light color may be a concern for you, though.
Instead of going all blue for your little prince or all pink for your princess, integrate a touch of all the colors and keep it rainbowy. That’s because the little girl who’s fond of the hues of pink might develop a liking for another color. So instead of remodeling the whole space, it’s a smart move to add a hint of all the colors.
Create a Personalized Mirror For Them To Boast!
Mirror is a major element of every room, be it an adult’s room or a kid’s lodge. You can go all-creative with frameless mirrors and make a statement piece for your kid’s room. Although some special mirrors are also available for kids in the market.
But it’s best to DIY a mirror that goes with your kid’s interests. For instance, if your boy is fond of toy cars and racing games, you can make a toy car frame for your kid. All you need to do is get a small-sized frameless mirror and some oy cars. Paste the toys to the ends of the frameless mirror to make a personalized frame. For your little girl, you can paste pink Minnie ears to the round frameless mirror and there you go!
Tip: Imagine you are 3 feet tall, now set the mirror accordingly.
Kids are inherently creative. They are in a continuous loop of learning and discovering. So you should let them learn and grow throughout their experiences. Encourage them to channel their creativity and explore their artistic spirit.
One great way to encourage creativity is to specify an art-wall in the kid’s room. Paint the wall with chalkboard paint or go with white and place some chalks or makers for the kid to play with. Ask the kid to draw and paint as he wants to on that wall. You can label that wall as the “Feature Wall” and cherish your kid’s creativity.
Add Some Superhero Fun
You can never go wrong with fantasy for your kid’s room decor. Add drama to the kid’s room by adding some superhero fun to it. You can add some superhero portraits or stickers.
Don’t go overboard as your kid’s favorite superhero character will change as soon as another superhero hits the cinema. (*winks*) So be minimalist with this approach so you can easily do some modification in the decor.
Kids’ rooms are a retreat to their little fantasy worlds. It’s quite easy to make them happy with their room decor. Just be innovative. Make sure to incorporate fun and creativity. Make an effort to inspire the little owner to come and play.
