When considering decorating options for a child’s room, you will need to take a close look at kid furniture. Kid furniture encompasses items such as beds, bedding, desks, nightstands, bureau drawers, lamps, and chairs.
There are seven basic steps to consider when decorating. These are floors, walls, furniture, lighting, plants, accessories, and fabric. When choosing kid furniture and decorating a child’s room, you will need to keep all of these steps in focus, by doing so, you will produce a lovely decorated room that every child will love.
Kid Furniture Styles
The type of kid furniture you select will be dependent upon the sex, age, and interests of the child. There are many items that are based upon a favorite theme or childhood character, while other pieces are more modern or contemporary in style and appearance.
Your first step is in determining what type of theme you will use for your child’s room. If it is going to be character based, then you can look for kid furniture that either features or compliments that character. Barbie and Batman are great examples of easy to find character based kid furniture. You can always find a Barbie or Batman themed chair, or bed accessories. If you are decorating a room for a young child or toddler, you will find many kid furniture available in these types of character themes.
For older children or a “tween”, not a teenager but still not a young child, you may want to go with kid furniture that compliments a color or pattern.
For girls, you can pull a room together with items such as fluffy pillows, colorful lamps, and curtains and accessories that stay in line with that theme.
For boys, you may want to focus on a hobby or interest. If you have an avid football fan, you may be fortunate enough to find some kid furniture items that will compliment and enhance the theme. Walls should be painted or decorated with wall murals in a complimentary fashion.
Lighting fixtures may also accentuate your choice in kid furniture by keeping in harmony with lines, styles, and shapes. When you are through with your main steps, accessorize the room to your child’s liking. You will be amazed at the results you will have, and your child will have a room as well as kid furniture that he or she can be proud of.
