Home Decor: Playful Kids Rooms

When you are decorating a kid’s room you are essentially creating a space for them to explore, learn and dream in - somewhere they will become little people in - we take a look at some rooms to inspire flights of fancy in!

The Basics

Firstly, every child is drawn to shapes and colours. Play around with different shades of colours and create interesting focal points with a wall of shapes for example. There are no hard and fast rules of what colours are meant for boys and which for girls - it all depends on the personality of your child.

Just remember that colours can have an effect on our moods and behaviours. Not sure what these effects are? Read more about colours and how it affects us.

If you have enough space, create a little play area for your child in their room. Not only will this help you to keep the rest of your home a little more organised, it will also teach them responsibility if they have to keep the area tidy themselves.

If you are a new parent-to-be remember these two things: One - a comfortable chair, whether it is a rocking chair or not, is a great asset to have in a nursery. It makes feeding time easier for you and your new baby. Two - you don’t need to stuff the room with furnishings and toys, for the first couple of months the room is essentially a workspace where diapers are changed and meals are given. Keep the room a neutral colour and soft finishes to ensure baby is calm and peaceful. By keeping the room neutral you are also making it a lot easier to add colour and other decor later on when baby grows up!

The Inspiration

And just for some fun we take a look at some really over-the-top (and very cool) rooms
