Family-Friendly Homes: The Best Advice on Kid’s Rooms

Kids rooms are probably the toughest rooms to decorate because of the overwhelming variety of furniture and other nursery products available. But here are some tips to make your work simpler.

Plan for the long-term

There are several baby and kids products that should be purchased in age-appropriate variants. But when it comes to buying the primary furniture for the nursery it is always a good idea to think for the long term. Having a playpen is a good idea. But for sleeping a good quality crib which is also convertible into a bed for the future use would be the best investment to make. So if you splurge on this you are all set for 5 to 6 years.

Be stingy when it comes to using up the floor space

Minimalism is the keyword when it comes to buying things for the kids’ rooms. They need an ample amount of floor space to walk, crawl and run around. There should also be proper natural lighting and ventilation in the room. Use up as little floor space as possible. Install wall shelves if additional storage is required.

Easy to maintain options are what you need

Right from the carpet to the bedding you choose to pick those fabrics that are easily washable. Kids’ rooms tend to get messy and the furnishing in the kids’ rooms might need frequent cleaning.

Gender neutral colors

Pick colors that are gender neutral. A more natural and generic theme like nature-inspired themes or outdoor inspired ones can all be great for those who are picking the décor essentials for the long term.

Finally, when it comes to window treatments, the aesthetic appeal should also be complemented by the functionality. Choose utilitarian window treatments. We got double glazed windows for our house in Edinburgh and for the kids’ rooms we got them in colors that match their rooms.
