Classic tastes advised with children’s bedrooms
Adopting classic approach to style is a good option when decorating children’s bedrooms, it has been claimed.
Providing advice on how to design such spaces for the Washington Examiner, interior designer Page Palmer explained that youngsters can quickly grow out of rooms if they are covered in favourite childhood characters.
She stated that, while offspring may love a Barbie or Sponge Bob themed sleeping area, bedroom furniture and children’s beds should be kept classic with plain fabrics.
Ms Palmer suggested accessories such as beanbags and throw pillows can be used to put a child’s stamp on a room, in addition to posters on the walls.
Aspects of the design such as lighting or bed linen can then be altered as young people grow, while texture can be introduced in the form of shag rugs or soft blankets.
Tracy Morris of Tracy Morris Design added: “Children should be involved in the design process because they will be the ones learning and growing in their space.”
Meanwhile, Daisy Bridgewater for the Telegraph recommends looking out for good pictures to put on kids’ walls.
