If there is one characteristic that is common for every child in the world, it is that children change tastes and wishes all the time.
This is not a simple whim: it is a sign that a child is growing. You need to consider this before refusing to redecorate their room, but to be aware at the same time that you won’t be able to respond to every of their wishes (sometimes, what they want will be exhaustive, expensive, or even impossible!).
Designers, however, developed a solution for this problem: instead of breaking your child’s heart, and the amazing party growing up represents, you can opt for creating a bedroom that grows with your child. And we are here to explain how:
At the end of the day, it’s their room! They are the ones that are going to spend time in it, and you have to make everything possible to provide them with a comfortable and pleasant environment.
You are the parent, and you have more design experience, but neglecting their wishes is not a good way to start. You need to know the values and interest of your child, and to look for items that will be at least close to what he’d imagined.
Including children in the process of designing a room is a strong creativity incentive, and it makes them feel proud and responsible for the first time. Don’t take that away from them!
When designing your child’s first room, you’d probably feel tempted to choose gender specific colors or accessories. Had you done that, be sure that repainting won’t slip out of your hands (hopefully, it will slip only once).
Those of you who haven’t made a final decision yet should use neutral colors, something alike gray, beige, cream, or even lavender violet (because these colors are gender neutral before anything else).
Still insisting on gender predestined schemes? Take light blue and ‘jazz it’ with warm purple beams or black-and-white accents.
Once again, this is not a guarantee that the boy will be satisfied as he grows: What if he gets up one morning, and decides that his room has to be red or brown?
The tricky part of using neutral colors is price: sounds like a paradox, but non-striking items cost most in the design world, so if you happen to find a cheap, yet beautiful piece your child we refuse it for being outdated. That’s right! Get ready!
In order to create a space that can keep up with age transition, you have to stick to multifunctional furniture that has a purpose both in the nursery and the adolescent private room.
Instead of a table, you could buy a wide bureau with a removable padded mat on top to keep children entertained. Instead of a small cabinet, you can take a smartly-divided dresser that accommodates both toys and clothes.
Whatever you choose, keep a low number of items, ideally that durable that you’d forget when you bought them.
