Three tips for decorating the kids’ rooms

Three tips for decorating the kids’ rooms

There are some tried and true interior design tips that will work for any room in the home. But there are some additional rules that you’ll want to keep in mind when decorating a kid’s room. Here are a few things you’ll want to consider before you dive in to designing your child’s bedroom.

Prepare for spills

It’s no secret that the kids’ bedrooms tend to take more of a beating than any other room in the home. You should just plan now for all kinds of spills and messes to take place there. With that in mind, you’ll want to select fabrics that are easy to care for and clean. Save your money and avoid buying precious textiles that will require professional cleaning; you’ll be at the dry cleaner’s every other week. Think machine-washable and stain-proof with every purchase and you’ll be safe.

Paint safe

Lead has been banned from household paints since the 70s. That doesn’t mean that every paint is safe for your child, however. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be found in many household paints and while they’re not poisonous, per se, they can irritate little children. VOCs are carbon-based chemicals that evaporate at room temperature. They aren’t usually harmful unless at very high levels but to be safe, it’s a good idea to go with low VOC paint, especially if any of your children have asthma.

Make room to grow

Remember that a kids’ room won’t be a kids’ room forever. As sad as it is, your little ones will grow older. So whether you’re decorating a nursery, a toddler’s room, or an older child, go with convertible furniture, like a crib that becomes a toddler bed or a day bed that transitions into a seating area. You can save a lot of money by planning ahead and thinking of how the room will need to be used throughout the years.
