Instagram and other popular social media are full of stylish rooms - parents to be to their best so their child grows up in an aesthetically pleasing space. Looking at all these inspirations and ideas how can we choose the perfect solution for our child? How to match furniture and accessories so that they’re not only comfortable and safe but also stimulate the development of sense of aesthetics from the first days?
Child room decor - less means more’
Child’s space should be a place for rest and relaxation. It should consist of proper conditions which spark your child’s creative thinking and be a place which will charge it with positive energy.
What’s worth remembering is that your child’s taste changes drastically - from the unconditional love to colour pink it goes to more toned colours or the other way around. That’s why it’s good to create a solid base of balanced colours in your child’s room. White, shades of grey or beige will work perfectly on walls, beds, wardrobes, chests of drawers. Good direction to take is also choosing a classic shape of furniture - simple style will always work despite your child’s changing likes and dislikes and can be used for years. You can get more creative and wild with the accessories which can be easily replaced (curtains, pictures, lighting, storage boxes, poufs, chairs, armchairs). We can easily replace them with new ones when your child outgrows them or simply doesn’t like them anymore.
One product in your child’s eyes can become multifunctional - it’s thinking has not been yet put into strict frames. you can be surprised what kind’s of new functions your child can find for an ordinary box, an armchair or a bed. Available bed, equipped with gymnastic accessories and additional playtime parts, as long as they meet the safety norms will not only look great but will also keep your child busy for many hours (might even make getting out of bed more pleasant - is there a child which wouldn’t enjoy starting its day on its own playground?). Most popular sets of furniture seem to be the modular ones which can be additionally equipped with ladders, climbing walls, slides, swings or even a fireman pipe. To maintain the coherence of the composition just buy all the furniture from the same set - even though furniture from the same manufacturer may look alike at first, the finishing and colour may actually differ.
Quality of space in which your child resides has a direct effect on it’s perception of aesthetics. Well designed interior will improve your child’s aesthetics sensitivity, while also shaping it’s taste. You should remember to always keep your child room tidy and in harmony. Boxes and baskets for toys and accessories are vital. Uncountable amount of toys in all colours of the rainbow may not only disturb your child’s aesthetics but also distract it. Books, toys and art tools can be put in separate, beautiful boxes in a spot easily accessible for your child - that way if the need comes it can reach them and decide what to play with but also clean it up afterwards.
Accessories are perfect for motives from movies and animated features. Posters, bedding or clothing with character from popular TV shows are elements which can be frequently changed with the changing interests of our child. this will also help us to avoid overloading your child with too many stimuli.
We should also try not to overdo the neatness and tidiness as this may limit our children’s imagination and individuality while shaping its taste. Things that may come as beautiful and fashionable for the parents, don’t necessarily meet the child’s likes and dislikes.
