Hi there! I hope you had a sunny weekend. It finally feels like Spring is on the way. Today my friend is sharing some of her design knowledge on decorating tips for Kid Rooms.
Well this is my first post about decorating so let me introduce myself, I’m Luana, a designer and mother of two young boys.
Since having my first child, decorating kid rooms and nurseries has been one of my favorite things to do. Maybe because I’m a big child at heart.I think it gives you the opportunity to let your imagination fly, be creative and think like a kid.
So here are few tips to use when decorating your little one’s space, let the memories begin:
Make sure your child has an input by asking what colors he or she likes best and what their favorite books, toys, and themes are. These are some of the things that will imprint their unique personality on an important space in their life.

Try to display souvenirs from places you have visited. I love doing this because it brings back happy memories for my kids.
Always think about their age, if that room will also be used as a playroom or if you need a desk for homework. My personal preference is to always include a desk with creative/crafty materials to help encourage the child’s imagination.

Don’t be afraid of colors, make it playful, wallpaper is a great idea. One of my favorite decorating techniques is to paint stripes on the wall to add more interest.
Chandeliers designed for kids can be such a fun idea for any child’s room. If you have a girl, you can always use something more delicate. If you have a boy’s room, there are some cool airplanes and trains pendants.
Remember, kids are developing and growing so they need appropriate sleeping, make sure they have a nice mattress and bedding.
Storage space is always appreciated by any parent, especially if you can hide the clutter.
Display their art in their room, it will make them feel special.
I’m also all about having a chic room for kids, I love to mix kids furniture with more modern furniture.
And don’t forget that kids are always busy, so make sure they don’t have anything in their room that they can get hurt on. Safety should always be first!
