When designing a kid’s room, there are several things to keep in mind. You want it to be playful, fresh, and share their personality, but you also need to keep in mind the functionality and longevity of the space. Whether you’re the parent of someone in diapers, potty training, or you’re just keeping up with their baseball or ballet lessons, we’ve got some tricks up our sleeve that will help you create a #NothingOrdinary space that will last.
Bring on the Pattern
Pattern is an easy way to integrate personality into a space without being overbearing. Plus, it can be added in so many different ways that the amount of pattern you add can be as small or large as you want! Use throw blankets, pillows, wallpaper, or a rug.
Incorporate Sentimental Pieces
When Designer Ashley was working on her daughter’s nursery, she made sure to add pieces from her own childhood. Whether that be a mirror that’s been passed down through your family’s generations, beloved pictures, or a piece that was in your own childhood room, mix these special touches into your kids’ space. It’ll add a hint of meaningful intention that everyone will love.
Invest in Essential Pieces
It’s inevitable for kids to grow up. Their clothes will get smaller all too quickly, and they’ll have a different interest each week. To guarantee that you won’t be redesigning their room every few weeks, invest in the essential pieces of furniture. Depending on your kid’s age, these essentials might be slightly different. Nonetheless, the principle still applies!
Add Playfulness Through Art
Since investing in the essential pieces is always the way to go, add playfulness through the accessories that can be switched out more easily. With so many options, you can tailor the personality of your space perfectly. As the little one’s style preferences evolve, use cheerful accent pieces of decor to reflect all their latest passions.
Build in Storage Space
When there are kids, there are toys. When there are toys, there is often a large mess. While we can’t promise that your kids will leave the room spotless after each time they play, we will say that having dedicated storage space for toys definitely helps. Make sure to include some storage when working on a layout. This will help your sanity in the long run!
