It is easy to decorate baby’s room: it develops the theme itself, according to our tastes. But it becomes less clear when baby grows and begins to assert itself. I remember the first time that my daughter has talked about decorating her room. She must have been seven or eight years, and it was after visiting the room of a friend that she wished to have new colors on its walls. Caprice? Some will believe, but I think this is part of the normal steps of affirmation of a child. His bedroom is his space, his refuge, and it must be like him. For my boy, this was different. All that mattered to him was space for games and there was little interest in new colors on its walls!

Keeping pace with the growth of our small

The nursery must keep pace with growth of our small, but be careful to choose the furniture and decor that match the age and tastes. Here are some tips to avoid draining its portfolio in proportion to the growth of our kids!

1) Avoid furniture with themes

In a generation of children kings, manufacturers are having a field day and offer a variety of furniture and accessories at very popular theme in children. There skimp more to please our children by buying them a bed shaped like a race car, or a bed fit for a princess tale of Walt Disney. And why not to accompany the comforter and matching table lamps? Unless you have great financial means, this is not an enviable solution, in a world where we want to minimize over-consumption. Indeed, this type of intermediate-sized furniture will be replaced when your little one will become greater. So you have to invest in a third set of furniture before it was teenager!


2) Choose a standard size bed and good quality

The bed is the most important furniture of the room. Opting for quality and durability will let you keep the same bed for years. If the room is small, we will opt for a bed frame size “twin” with integrated storage. The bed against the wall frees up space for activities. The bunk beds are very popular because they allow or invite a friend to practice “climbing”. But beware! Not before six years, security question. The choice of mattress is also very important for the quality of sleep for your child. Be sure to get a mattress cover in case of mishaps.

3) The storage well suited

Do not buy too much furniture. A child does not need lots of drawers for clothes. We can easily adapt the wardrobe and there almost every clothing store. It is a matter of organization . Instead, opt for storage space for toys, as well shelves attached to walls with anchors or solid, a cabinet or bookcase. Six to 12 years, the most important thing is the space available for the main activity: play.

4) The color sparingly

This is the color that personalizes the room. In general, girls love pink, lilac and lime green and boys are usually sensitive to blue, red and primary colors. But we must ensure that the color does not disturb sleep. Red, lime green and all saturated colors should be used sparingly, on a single wall or colored box and accompanied by neutral colors (white, cream or beige). These colors vibrate your offspring? Include them in the scenery through decorative accessories such as bedding, cushions and curtains, rather than on all the walls. The result will be more discreet and sure to please your little one.

5) The floor covering

Simplify your life by choosing a wood floor or full floating, or a vinyl or linoleum, easier to maintain. Like little like playing on the floor, a colorful rug will be a simple and comfortable option.When choosing furniture good, it becomes easier and much cheaper to transform the decor of the room of her child, according to his whims. Take time to plan the project with your child and consider her tastes and creative aspirations. However, remember that it is you who are leading the project and final decisions are yours. The budget must be established at the outset. Plan to replace the items and calculate the approximate amounts involved.
