Every so often, your child’s room may be in need of an update. Unless you’ve managed to somehow keep things fairly neutral, your child is likely to go through stages where they chop and change what they like and don’t like.
What might have been a good color scheme during their early childhood, might not be their preference as they head into their earlier teens. With that being said, here are some tips on how to upgrade your kids’ bedrooms.
Provide Easy to Clean Surfaces
Kids are very messy. While you try and teach them on how to be clean around the home, it’s a good idea to provide their room with easy-to-clean surfaces. The last thing you want is to install anything that’s going to be hard to clean, like wooden surfaces that perhaps haven’t been properly sealed and therefore anything that falls onto it, will stain.
These easy-to-clean surfaces are going to make your life easier but it’s also going to provide them with the ability to clean up after themselves. There will be no accidents for the most part or fewer as a result of having more kid-friendly surfaces.
Include Color in Things that can be Changed
Color is something that can change over childhood. What was once their favorite color, could now be a different one completely. That being said, it’s worth bringing it back to basics with their bedroom’s color scheme. Try to keep the walls and floors pretty neutral and instead focus the attention on color through furnishings and decor.
Things like bedding, throws, and cushions can be the area where you put color into the room, and what makes this useful is that these can be swapped out easily when they’ve gone out of style or taste.
Make Sure the Furniture is Kid-Friendly
The kid’s bedroom furniture should be something that’s kid-friendly. It’s surprising just how little spatial awareness some children can have and that ultimately results in an accident involving a bleeding knee or a sore elbow.
There’s plenty of furniture that has been designed and made for kids in mind. The more soft and squishy it is, the better it’s going to be if your child does fall over. At least, they’ll fall over onto something that’s not going to cause too much damage.
Purchase a Custom-Sized Mattress
For kids in general, it’s important that they always have a good night’s sleep. Some mattresses aren’t quite the best that they could be and so it may be worth getting them a custom mattress that fits their size and will help them get a more restful night’s sleep.
This is important as they grow and develop. If you’ve got a mattress that’s over eight years old, then it’s worth replacing it as it might not be as effective as it once was. You can also purchase a custom sized mattress for beds such as bunk beds or loft beds.
Upgrading your kids’ bedroom is often needed, so use these tips to make sure that they have a space that they can enjoy to the fullest.
