Decorating a child’s room is a mammoth task and you would surely appreciate some help. Involving children infuses an extremely generous dose of fun in an otherwise boring and tiring job. Children often surprise their parents with their creative instincts. Ensuring their involvement in decorating their room provides them an outlet to channelize their creativity. If this wasn’t enough, research commissioned by Dulux reveals that as much as 92% of kids say that they would spend more time in the room that they have helped designed themselves.
Using the wall as your canvas
It’s not the furniture or the bed that first attracts the attention, it’s the walls! From the paints to artwork to wall stickers, these walls of your child’s room are an expression of their thoughts. There is no happier child than the one excitedly talking about how they are going to decorate their walls.
Walls are to your children what a blank canvas is to a painter- a place to unleash their creativity. There are numerous ways in which the walls can be spruced up.
Ø Painting the wall: Like in everything else, there are different tastes in wall paints as well. There is no need to sweat if your sophisticated, minimalist style clashes with your child's quirky one. There is always a way to reach a consensus. Sit down with the family members and list their color preferences. Take the colors that everyone disagrees on and strike them off the common list. The next step is to finalize the colors that are agreeable to all the members. Once that’s done, let your child choose what they like. This way not only do the children get to have their say, but it also doesn’t interfere with the overall look and symmetry of your home!
Ø Display the artwork: There is no child in the world who doesn’t like to paint and scribble. Another great way to decorate your child’s room is by displaying their artwork on the walls. Let the children decide the wall on which they’ll like their artwork displayed. You could use non-stick adhesive to stick the artwork on the artwork. You could even have pretty little threads crisscrossing on a wall where the kids could hang their artwork. Does your child have favorite photographs that are gathering dust in the attic? Time to get those photos out of there and on the walls! This is a perfect example of a simple activity being turned into a family bonding time in a fun way.
Ø Wall decals: Wall decals add a lot of excitement and character to your children’s room. Jazzy, wild, offbeat, or conventional, they come in all shapes and sizes for the kids to pick up from. If the kids are slightly older they can even help you install them. Here too, you can jointly decide with the children which corner to decorate the wall with Wall decals.
