Kid’s room is challenging to decorate
New York- Arabstoday
Kids’ rooms can be a challenge to decorate and just as frustrating to organize. Especially boys’ rooms. Get down to your child's eye level to help him or her get organized. Look at your child's space, storage, furniture and possessions from his or her vantage point. The view may surprise you!
Adult furniture and organizing systems don't translate well to children's needs. Sticky dresser drawers are hard for small hands to manage. Folding closet doors pinch fingers and jump their rails when pushed from the bottom. Closet hanging rods are out of reach, while adult hangers don't fit smaller clothing. Traditional toy boxes house a tangled jumble of mixed and scattered toy parts.
To organize a child's room, solutions must fit the child. For younger children, remove closet doors entirely. Lower clothing rods and invest in child-sized hangers. Use floor-level open containers to hold toys, open plastic baskets to store socks and underwear.
Devise a simple daily checklist for maintenance.
Children’s rooms really don’t need a lot of decoration
To organize a child's room, tailor the effort to the child.
Here you can find some tips to follow:
·Keep the basic shell of the room tasteful, neutral (meaning, no theme), and timeless. Instill the fun personality in things you can easily update or change as the child’s tastes evolve.
·Choose a paint color for the walls that you can live with for a long time, unless you love painting walls.
·Boys tend to outgrow cute decor a lot faster than girls do.To save money in the long run on boys’ rooms, stick to classic rugs, fabrics, colors and bedding patterns.
•Children’s rooms really don’t need a lot of decoration. Kids have colorful and interesting things they like to display. They really don’t need more stuff in their rooms that is what leads to all the visual clutter. Keeping things simple, classic and clean usually makes for a more pleasing overall effect. Make the most of what they already have and use the best of it to decorate the room. Put attractive toys on display. Have colorful bedding or curtains.
•Children should have lots of room to feature their drawings and art. Try backs of doors, bulletin boards, and clips on walls to hang their creations
•Chalkboards are great for kids. Not only can they use them to create, you can use chalkboards as a tool to help them learn to organize their own to do lists and daily schedules
•Stick bookshelves wherever you can find space, particularly in close proximity to the bed to encourage them to read (and to keep the books tidy). Many books are also decorative so having them with their covers on display takes care of decorating and their education all in one step.
•Make sure each child has a good reading light next to their bed.
•We put an adult-sized chair and a lamp in each child’s room (if there is enough space) to allow for bedtime stories with mom or dad.
