Ever heard of the phase; new year, new me? A new me tends to consider a complete revamp of your day-to-day activities, from the fitness regime you follow through to the food you eat. Have you ever understood the importance of your children’s environment when doing such things? Our environment has a huge influence on how we feel and what we do, and this doesn’t just apply to adults. The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her health and development. Having a safe and loving home and spending time with family―playing, singing, reading, and talking―are very important. Here are a selection of design ideas for children’s rooms.
Stringing up pretty bunting – a brilliant thing to make on a shoestring budget – makes for a pretty decorative touch. Bunting is the perfect way to add a fun touch to your child’s room. It’s pretty, playful, and can be made with different fabrics and patterns to suit any occasion. And what’s more, you can get your child involved in the crafting process.

Prints are a great way to brighten up a white bedroom, but they can often be quite pricey, so why not use your kid’s artwork to brighten up their room. Frame their favourite drawings and hang them up to create a cost-effective gallery wall. Not only will it add an affordable splash of colour to the room, but your child will be so proud to see their work hung up like in a proper gallery.

As your children grow, their room will need to accommodate a desk for study and plenty of additional storage space for books and equipment. Shop for multi-functional pieces of furniture that incorporate desk space with plenty of hidden, but accessible, storage. Avoid ‘theming’ a room too much, instead opting to bring to life your child’s favourite designs and colours through bedlinen and soft accessories. Remember that simple storage items such as boxes, baskets, hooks, hangers and wall organizers will all help to create an efficient space that still has plenty of personalities.
