Kid's Bedroom Basics
Just like with their parents, a child's bedroom is their sanctuary. During these stressful times, this is even more so.
Here are some key things to think about your child's bedroom.
Personal Style â€“ whether it's a TP or a puppet theater, allow your children to be in the driver's seat about one focal point of the room, even if it doesn't go with your "Vision" or theme. Make sure it's easily changed, because our "wee ones" are a constantly "morphing" canvas.
Quiet Space â€“ train your Little Bo Peeps that their bedroom is a "place for peace." Set up a cozy reading corner with a bookcase, comfy chair and a good reading light. Invest in a decent bedframe and mattress.
Responsibility â€“ make it easy for kids to stay organized. Sometimes visual clutter is noisier than sound. Never underestimate the importance of proper storage. When choosing a chest of drawers or storage cabinet, buy a bit bigger than current needs so there is "room to grow". Bins and cubbies should be labeled to avoid the dreaded "digging and dumping." Streamline their belongings to make "clean up a breeze" and if you are overwhelmed, imagine how your child feels.
A well put together child's bedroom often inspires a sense of balance in today's topsy turvy world. Also, letting your child have input on their personal space often fosters pride of ownership.
