One can definitely not stop their children from growing up, all that is up to us is to not miss a single moment as they grow up. The best thing however, that you can do for them, is create an environment for them that will let them grow ahead and be more productive.
Obviously, as a child grows older, that too specially with a faster pace than normal, every parent feels the need to change the interior of their child’s room according to his or her age. While redecorating can be a time consuming, dedicated task; it is also a fun and interesting task to do that creates an inlet to your inner creativity suppressed by your daily hectic routines. It also allows a parent to learn to love what their child might prefer.
Following are a few recommendations on how to redecorate your growing child’s room.
The first step to redecorating has always been re-painting the room. If you consider the base of hues you have used earlier as appropriate; you can always jump on to the next step. However, if you feel the need to change it, always try combining vibrant colors with soft toned ones to create a sense of equilibrium and sophistication in the room.
The next thing that hits the mind as you redecorate is the idea of changing furniture; because you either bought something too expensive or you bought something too childish that seems inappropriate with the child’s age now. There’s not a lot that can be done about it but you can always re-purpose the furniture or re touch it in such a way that the cost is economical and the furniture reflects a decent design as well.
If you can still afford new furniture, make sure to buy something versatile this time, which can adjust with all the growth stages of your child. Do not underestimate the power of versatility and get some expert advice on what to choose by researching on the web.
For example, it is advised to choose something that has good colors but at the same time appears more elegant than colorful or juvenile.
As furniture is the main focus in a room, experts suggest that buying huge beds for your child is not the choice you should make. It is recommended that one chooses a kind of bed that will save floor space that can be later re–purposed as a study or crafting area as your child starts to grow.
Redecorating according to the child’s age includes removing the little childish things away and replacing them with something your kid loves around him or herself. For instance removing dolls or plastic toys and replacing them with stuffed toys. (Not only adolescents, but teenagers love teenagers too).
Keep in mind the above re-decorating suggestions in mind and you’ll be able to create a room best suited for almost all growing stages of your child’s age, until the young one reaches the age where he or she decides to decorate the room by themselves.
