What Kids Can Teach You About Home Decor and… Life

When you grow-up and learn to think inside the box, it is getting complicated to go easily beyond the borders. Get inspired by the kids’ lifestyle and their freedom of thought. Rules are good, but sometimes the pieces of art come out when the rules are broken. In creative matter – the perfect source of fresh idea is your child. Children do see the world and things differently, with no limits or rules. So, when time comes to rearrange your kid’s bedroom or make it from the nursery into the teenager’s room, go plan it together with your youngster. Let the kids talk their ideas! Here are few draft issues you can work on together!

It is great to decorate with the favorite color. Well, of course to some extent. What color is your child’s favorite now? It does not mean that you have to go wild with the acid pink or khaki. It means that you will have one accent color to play the major part here in the room. If the color is rich, pair it with neutrals. Useful tip: use undertones to make it lively, and pay attention to color temperature (keep it right and in harmony with the other tones).

It should be fun! Not everything has to match. Again, follow the kids and watch them go creative in every aspect – from clothes they choose to their own creations, when they perform, play, or get involved into beloved hobby. The room of a child or teenager should be a little overwhelmed, crazy and chaotic to be comfortable. Here’s the scratch map and bucket list wall, here’s the spot for studying, storage for stuff, Instagram zone for stories and selfies, space to play the game. Think from this perspective and help your child to feel as comfortable here, as you feel comfortable in your bedroom and home office. But look at it with the eyes and heart of a kid. Remember what you liked the most about your room, when you were a kid? What was on trend then?

Smart! and functional – these are the clues to make it up-to-date. World is moving so fast nowadays, so making it all useful for achieving goals and accept challenges, the room and youth furniture have to be smart. Bookcase bed with the reading light – great, furniture with chargers and enough space for clever storage – awesome! Devices and virtual era should be in easy access [fairly used]. Room should keep evolving with the growth and with the hobbies and tastes of your youngster. Your kid adores art – leave one wall for his own painting; fan of music – break the rules and make the youth bedroom in a music studio style. Furthermore, you have to be smart – still it is the bedroom and it has to be a shelter and a good relaxation place for your kid to have a good healthy sleep.

After all, this room has to make your kid(s) happy! By the way, the entire home design has to make everyone around happy, but not follow the trends or styles or impress the guests, we all have to keep it in mind. Follow us and don’t miss the deals and advice from FurnitureCart!

Tips and Tricks On Decorating Child’s Bedroom

Just the same, as adults, little ones need and want a fabulous, comfortable and functional bedroom. Today the Furniture Cart specialists in home décor and interior design are here to give you few tips and tricks on creating the magnificent space for a child that will become a true retreat and a favorite spot for your little superhero or a tender lady.

Fleeting childhood years are the most important in growing an imaginative and self-confident personality inside your little treasure, so let your child enjoy it to the full extent and involve your kid into the creative process of making their nook, while choosing the color scheme, main theme of bedroom and furnishings.

Well, frankly speaking, this is the first you have to start with! Just before decorating or going shopping, you have to ask your child to imagine and tell you how the dream bedroom looks; what will the main theme of the nook be; and what the favorite colors of your little one are. Let’s have the precise look at the rules and regulations of this very important process.

Follow the interests of your child

Every kid has a passion for something special. Either baseball, space, science, Marvel characters or Disney princesses and fairies, it is pretty easy to work the top interest into the main bedroom theme. It does not mean that you have to overwhelm with the only one character and theme, just few things will be enough to keep simple yet stylish. Few wall decals, accessories and a comforter will help to keep up with it. Moreover, when your son or daughter matures, it will be easier to rearrange.

Chose the color palette… and add something extra!

Keep in mind the color your kid loves, and let it be the dominant color in the ambience or select two tones which your son or daughter prefers. Add the third one completely different, yet appealing to your child. This color becomes “accent” color for some accessories, accent chair or a beanbag, accent pillows. Adding a fluffy rug will help to complete the whole style and make it a cozy and restful room. Just let both the imagination of yours and your child flow!

Mess vs Storage

Small kids and mess usually go together, don’t they? Solutions are always easy: use a plenty of alternatives to store and convert the mess into order and make it a well-organised place. Use open shelves for an easy access to the things your child loves or uses often, and keep the rest of the stuff in the drawers, chests or storage beds. Check!

Shrink?!

Don’t panic if you have a small space but a long list of wishes for a dream bedroom from your child! It is easy to maximize the space by furniture rearrangement and a touch of space improvement. Interior designer tip: push the bed against the wall, so the headboard is in the corner. It’s definitely a win-win – cause avoiding open areas around the sleeping spot cuts down the fears of the monsters under the bed (verified!) and it opens up the space in the middle of the room.

Doubled, tripled and more

If still there’s not much space, but it has to be shared by two or more kids, a bunk bed or trundle may be a good option. Still leave enough freedom for each of your young heirs to add their own bedding, bedside lamp or artwork to hang over in their nook, which will help to set their individual style. And, with the bunk beds – don’t forget to set the safety rules.

Smart

Once your kid is grown up enough to have regular study at home, he/she needs an area for focused homework and another area to rest. Designer’s tip for you due to that fact: you will have to arrange the furniture for the study close to the window to let enough daylight to lit the study corner. To save space or to get the most of your furniture investment, select the furniture with the smart options, the one that is easily transformed or continues to be used as the kid grows.

Wish you to have an inspiring decorating and rearrangement, and don’t forget that it is the process supposed to give you and your child a lot of positive emotions and a great fun!
