If you have just moved to a new home or are looking at the new homes for sale in County Durham, it is time to plan your child’s bedroom. It is proven that the quicker you make a child feel at home – the quicker they settle in and cope with the change.
The prospect of personalising and designing your child’s room can be fun, if a bit daunting. It’s important that you create a space they feel comfortable in, that reflects their personalities as well as suiting your own styles – and an overall feel that is in-keeping with the rest of the house. It’s also not necessary to break the bank or go over-the-top. Here are some cute themes and schemes to get your creative juices flowing.
If you stick to pastel shades, you can mix and match numerous colours without a room becoming overloaded or too loud. Pastel is very on-trend, so pastel-coloured furnishings are readily available, but it shows no sign of disappearing any time soon, so it’s a safe choice that is already quite classic. It’s especially perfect for little girls, but baby blue, creams and yellow work well for boys.
You don’t have to live near the sea or harbour an interest in boating to appreciate the simplicity and charm of a nautical themed room. Often it can seem a little childish in other rooms of the house, so take advantage of the creative freedom when designing for children. Blue and white stripes are the easiest way to channel this theme, as well as motifs of sailboats or shell-inspired decorations. A sail canopy above the bed is a really fun and cosy feature that kids will love.
This can be gender-tailored or left more neutral, but however you decide to finish it off, inspire an interest in geography with a cool map-based decor. You can cover one whole wall with a map of the world, with other patterns and images associated with travel, like planes and compasses. It’s a nice idea that as they get older and begin to travel, they can tailor their room to include personal travel-based memories.
Decorating your home is an exciting and rewarding activity, so have some fun with your children’s bedroom this year.
