Shabnam shares five important guidelines, every parent should keep in mind before designing their children’s bedroom:
Think safety first – When you are unleashing your creative genie, safety has to be your top consideration when designing for any element or furniture.
It’s all in the planning – As with other spaces in your home, I believe that it is a good idea to mentally draw out the space. Plan, so you can size and mark the place – work, play and sleep. Create free space for the children so that they don’t get lost in the clutter. Younger children need more play room, while older children need more lounge and workspace
Involve your child – As your children begin to show choices, you must pay heed to their opinion and involve them in the decision-making process. This stimulates a sense of pride and upkeep of their space. By discussing colors and styles with them, you are developing the child’s taste and discretion.
Keep the design simple- Keep the plan sans frills and incorporate lots of shelving and storage – board games, books, etc. Keep the design fluid – simply because this lets you change the design with your child’s growing needs and interests.
Avoid using too much furniture – It’s unnecessary to pack a kid’s room with too much furniture. Enough room must be left for kids to play games and for them to enjoy the space without getting lost in the clutter of things.
