Personalizing Your Child’s Space

As children become more aware of the various interior design possibilities their desire to have an active role in the look of their room increases. Parents have also played a role in the growing popularity of decorating children’s rooms because it allows them another room in the house to vent their creative furor on. Sometimes it allows them a place to experiment with design options they wouldn’t feel comfortable with in other parts of their home, perhaps a particularly bold splash of color or an interesting painting technique.

Personalization in the form of monograms, custom throw pillows and framed art is currently a very popular trend in kids’ room decor. Children can personalize furniture in their room by putting their name on items such as chest of drawers, study desk and closet doors. Framed art can be based on a subject that the child is passionate about or be some of the child’s own artwork that is framed. This can also help to ensure that some cherished piece of art is not lost in the mass of school papers and projects that float around in most homes. Children should be included in the design process to the extent possible. Allowing them to choose the color of certain items or choosing a specific item like a ceiling fan or a lamp will make them feel they are truly a part of the process.

Another nice thing that framed art can do is to teach children about the world around them. A large framed world map, a globe, or framed pictures of places they have traveled to, on vacation or in school, not only make excellent decoration but also spark the imagination. Personalized wall art can also be a unique way to commemorate special events in a child’s life. Usually sporting events are what first come to mind in this regard. A medal, a first home run bat or ball, a jersey, a pair of swim goggles, these kinds of items can be combined in a creative and professional manner to create a lasting memento and a stylish piece of wall art.

Picking up on current color trends in kid’s room decor may also be a nice touch when decorating your child’s room. Right now pink and purples along with white are the most popular colors in girls rooms with brown and greens taking over as the current color trends for boys. Pick bedding to match the color scheme of the room. Space under beds can be used for storage thus freeing up more space for play time in the room and the child’s ever growing collections.

Always incorporate a beautiful rug into your child’s bedroom. Most children love to spend time lounging on the floor, so make sure you choose a rug that is soft and comfortable. You can find area rugs in a variety of bright colors, designed specifically for children and teenagers. If your teenage girl loves the color pink, you can find a plush pink rug to add pizzazz to an otherwise simple design.

eBay is an excellent place to find items for decorating or redecorating your child’s room. Several of the big chain stores also devote catalogs and special section of their stores to youth furnishings and decor. It’s important to find furniture that is sturdy and can stand up to the wear and tear that is a given in any child’s room.
