Creating a space your child will love can be fun and rewarding. With a little imagination and planning, their room will be one that grows with them from cradle to college.
Future focused. Today’s top designers recommend skipping babyish themes and focusing on timeless style. With the abundance of choices today in youth furniture, think ahead when making furniture choices to how the pieces will look in a teenager’s room years from now.
Bed head. Why not begin with the most important component of the room — the bed? A full-size or queen-size bed gives your child room to grow. And when they go off to college, it’ll be that much easier to turn the space into a guest room. If you have kids sharing a room, consider bunk beds, to save space, or twin beds to keep the guest room option open.
Accessorize with abandon. Don’t hold back on accents and accessories. Wall colors, bedding and artwork can really bring a space together—yet are easily updated as your child’s tastes change over the years.
Bring the style of the other rooms of your home into your child’s space. Add a touch of sophistication with prints, graphic patterns and monograms. Once they’re old enough, get your child involved in the process and encourage their input and creativity.
Accent on style. An accent wall is a great way to brighten up and add interest to your child’s room. A stenciled pattern, mural or wallpaper adds impact, and can be easily updated when the time comes. With a bit of paint or wallpaper, even the ceiling can become a focal point!
Colorfully creative.Go beyond the “traditional” shades of pink and blue. From pastels to neon to bright fluorescents, be creative in your color combinations. Try a classic black and white color scheme, and brighten it with pops of accent color. Grays are the new neutral, and can be paired with a variety of hues for a stylish effect.
