Changing The Kids Room Décor
Your kid will never tell you that it has tired of its room and that it wants a change. This is something that should become obvious when you see that it is starting to neglect its room. Sub-consciously, this is a sign that it has grown weary of all the same things being in the same places, and has started taking everything for granted. You need to be the conscious one here and do something before this attitude spreads. You need to give the kid something new, a new room to take care of, a new environment to be conscious of and enjoy. And here are some tips on how to do it.
You could repaint the room to give the kid’s imagination a visual stimulus. Vibrant colors always draw attention and the kid will always be aware of them. This could also go with your kid’s personality, if it is of the energetic type. Bright colors always work for a kids room, so don’t worry when making a choice – if your kid’s favorite color is not bright enough, pick anything from white to blue to yellow. Don’t use melancholic colors – gloomy effects are not a good idea for a child, especially if it is in a bad mood.
After repainting comes cleaning, of course. Besides the visual, you can also give the room a literal breath of fresh air with a bit of cleaning. Carpet cleaning is essential as it will be the one thing that dirties the fastest. Use a proper carpet cleaner and be careful not to pick one too toxic – there are plenty of chemical-filled cleaners out there, and you should be wary of what you expose your child to. You could instead look for a green efficient house cleaning product which is much healthier, and will help not only the carpet and the child, but the environment as well.
Separate the room into zones. Place the bed in the sleeping zone in one corner of the room, make a playing zone with all the toys, make a creativity zone with a small desk and a chair, or a low table and floor cushions where the kid can draw or spend time over coloring books. If you think it appropriate, you can even put a TV somewhere in there, and leave the child’s TV time for itself to choose. You might even add a video game console, but be careful not to spoil it too much.
Add some new decorations. Same as the paint, decorations work on the child’s imagination and it develops more quickly. Different decorations might become an inspiration for something the child has been wondering about. You never know what may strike the kid’s creativity, so put a bit of everything.
With this your child should have a brand new and improved room, and the change will definitely be noticed. Even children like new things, so it will be conscious of it for a while and will try and keep it organized for as much as it can.
