You may think that you need to fill up your child’s room with a lot of decor and stuff, but less is usually more. Try to keep the furnishings simple so that your kid can have more space to discover and experiment with. 

This can also be great because you can easily update the room as your child grows and changes interests. It will be easily customizable if the decor and furnishings are simple. 

2. Prepare for storage. 

Kids usually have a lot of toys, books, games, and clothes. This means that you really have to think of a way to organize their stuff and think of ways to store them efficiently and effectively. 

Some tips can be to use hooks and book rails. You can also make use of the space under their beds and place some storage crates for items that you don’t need as often. 

You can also buy furniture that has built-in storage. There are actually beds and chairs that can double as a storage unit. 

Try to be creative and maximize space. You can also ask for help from professional organizers to help you. 

3. Experiment with different colors.

Especially when kids are younger, they’ll appreciate splashes of color in their room. It will also encourage creativity in them. 

Still, kids grow, and the thought of having to repaint the room entirely different can be a hassle. A good compromise is to add different colored accessories to a room with a neutral background.

This helps you to still experiment with different colors but still allow customization especially when the kids grow up to be in  high school or college and want more freedom with their room. 

4. Include a work station. 

No matter what age your kids are, they’ll need a good place conducive for working and studying. Giving them a space where they can be creative and productive can help with their development. 

When they get older, this can be a good and quiet space to work on homework and papers. A pro tip will be to try to keep everything within reach through clear containers. 

For younger kids, try to have a space where they can proudly display their creations. For older kids, you can convert that space into a bulletin board or cork board where they can keep track of their schedule and important reminders. 

5. Think about lighting.

An aspect that is often not given the proper attention it deserves is lighting. Make sure that they have windows for natural light to pour in during the day. 

Windows are pretty flexible. You can experiment with different kinds of treatments and blinds according to the mood and tone of the room that you’re going for. 

Windows can also be maintained easily. In case you need help with this, there are professionals who handle washing, cleaning, repair, or replacement

Also make sure the artificial lighting you’ll have for night time is good; not too yellow or too cold.
