Redecorating Your Toddler’s Room For Maximum Use
The time will come where you will have to redecorate your toddler’s room. Luckily, this is one of the easiest rooms that you can achieve a successful design. You just have to think like a child, but also as an adult.
As you remove items from the room, it will be quite common that you start thinking of the beautiful memories you have of your child. For instance, you might have flashes of your little one coming home from the hospital in the Graco Snugride infant car seat.
As your baby is growing, you have to find a way to redecorate the room with your child in mind. Remember, while you may want something more sophisticated and beautiful, you also are decorating for a child. You want your child to be comfortable in his or her room.
One thing you should look at is the size of the room and what the room will be used for. If it’s only going to be used for sleeping, then you have lots of options. On the other hand, if your child will be playing in the room, perhaps a loft bed would be the best solution. This type of bed is lifted up and out of the way. It’s basically on stilts if you will. So, the space beneath it is left open and free to use them as you wish.
The area can be used as a play station, a reading area, or whatever you and your child decide upon. This way, the room will be more functional because there will be more space in it.
You can use bedding quilts or other bedding options, such as comforters. Of course, your choices will have lots to do with what you already have planned for your design scheme.
If you feel uncomfortable adding bold and vibrant colors on the walls, keep them neutral. You can still make the room look incredible and appealing to your child in other ways. For example, framed posters, borders, fun bedding, pillows, rugs and window dressings could all provide color in the space. Bookcases and shelves could also provide for great storage and decor.
Just allow your child to bring in personal ideas. For example, you can allow your child to finger paint on a large canvas which you can frame and hang on the wall that he or she can show off with pride. Or, if you are a little more confidence, allow their handprints to be stamped on a specified area, such as closet door.
