You committed your time to baby proofing the house as much as you can when you were expecting, wrapping anything that has a sharp edge in bubble wrap and ensuring cupboards and drawers can only be opened by trained professionals. But now it’s time to focus on your child's room and transforming it into a place that they can call their very own.
You want to ensure from a young age that your child enjoys their own room so that become comfortable within their own space. In order to do so, you need to decorate the room with exciting and practical features that create an interesting yet relaxing environment for your little prince or princess. Here are some ideas to help guide you make this space something special:
Keep It Clean With Hangers and Hooks
Kids like to create mess but don’t like to clean up. Whilst it is difficult to instill good cleaning habits in children at a young age, you can show your kids the way by maintaining their room for them and acting as a role model. You can help your child to start forming cleaning habits by rewarding good behaviour, encouraging them to neaten up toys or play areas once they have finished with them and making games out of chores.
Another practical solution for keeping your child's room clean is through the use of kids bedroom hooks. Hangers or wall hooks are a great way to do this. Instead of throwing clothes, bags and books to the floor, coat hangers or hat stands make a designated area for children to leave their possessions. By continuously encouraging this behaviour your child will eventually find value in keeping their room and maybe even other parts if the house, neat and tidy.
Decorate With Fun Features & Furniture
Decorating your child's room with an abundance of features and furniture is a great way to add character and excitement. Novelty lamps, wall stickers such as glowing stars, colourful furniture and toy displays are great ways to create a space that will be sure to excite your little one. Familiar faces such as their favourite fictional characters enhance the level of interest they have with their room whilst novelty bed sheets add value to bedtime, increasing the chance of peace and quiet when the sun goes down. You can use all sorts of childrens decor to personalise their room.
Light It Up With Night Lights
Too often, children struggle with sleeping on their own. They struggle to unwind and find great anxiety when in a separate room from mum and dad. In order to counter this, night lights become the perfect addition to their room. Whilst not shining too bright but enough to keep kids feeling secure night lights can be used from a very young age. Baby night lights often involve a standard lamp or light that doesn’t distract them from their precious sleep. Other night lights however can be used to relax your child before sleep through wall and ceiling projections and can be carried around when making trips to the toilet during the night.
So get decorating, clean it up and make sleeping an easy task for your little one. You can turn your child's bedroom into a place they will love. You can get plenty of features to make your child's room amazing, starting by looking for baby nurseries online and continuously transforming it as your child grows.
