Kids grow up so fast, it can be hard to keep up when it comes to styling their bedrooms. While a mural with unicorns and rainbows might be fun, your little one will have outgrown it before you know it. We want to give you our best tips for maintaining a balance for a practical yet beautiful bedroom for your little one so keep on reading!
Keep It Cool
Styling with cute and calming colours is the perfect option for a child’s bedroom. Baby blues, khakis, pastel pinks and greys are among some of the favourites for the décor of a little one’s space. Not only do these colours support a calm mood for the parents and baby alike, they can also grow with the child as they are always in style. Your kiddies are going to have enough bright and crazy toys to be overwhelmed by, so their living space doesn’t need to have the same effect. You might need to throw away a hot pink barbie pillow one day, but the baby pink pillow can stick around for years to come.
We know just how expensive children can be, so we also know that perhaps you’d like to decorate their bedroom without breaking the bank. Certain elements of a child’s room like a small art desk or a changing table are not permanent, so spending a little less on these types of pieces is a smart move. Using second hand furniture from places like Facebook marketplace is worth trying, and you can always spruce things up with a coat of paint to match your personal style.
Children bring out the kid in all of us, so it’s easy to get over excited when it comes to decorating their rooms. This isn’t a bad thing, and us Vaultsters encourage creativity and joy wherever it is found. However, when it comes to the style of your child’s bedroom, you can be smart about it too. Start with a neutral base and save all the fun stuff for the décor items that can be easily removed once they’ve been outgrown. It takes a few minutes to pull down a framed poster of a dinosaur and replace it with a beach scene, but it’ll take an entire day to get your walls from blue and green stripes to a crisp white.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly….collaborate! The most important part of a child’s bedroom is that they feel comfortable and happy when they spend time in it. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they want and let them be a part of the decorating experience if they are old enough. This can serve as a great bonding experience, after all, interior styling is all about having fun and expressing yourself.
