In order to meet the day to day demands of the average inhabitant, most homes need to be kitted out with storage solutions and functional furniture. This doesn’t necessitate, however, forgoing style in favour of practicality. You may have your foot firmly in the ‘less is more’ camp or favour a household with a more lived-in feel, but whatever your particular interior pleasure, chances are that your home represents your personality.
The way you decorate your four walls can reflect your character and it’s likely that other family members are keen to put their stamp on their own space too. There’s every chance the children are as adamant as the adults when it comes down to interior design. So why not help your offspring create the bedroom of their dreams with a space that represents their style?
Of course, most children dip in and out of fashions and fads, favouring a certain colour or theme for a short while before switching allegiance to an alternative with renewed enthusiasm and equal zeal. There are ways, however, that a child’s bedroom can stand the test of time while simultaneously satisfying an insatiable appetite for the flavour of the month. A few simple tweaks to an outdated interior can upgrade a bedroom and keep up with your growing girl or boy.
For example, choose wallpaper for a feature wall that encompasses several different colours. Pick out a particular colour and accessorise accordingly. That way when your little girl grows out of her garish pink phase you can choose an alternative colour together and go to town, accessorising with a more grown-up tone.
Why not take the soft scheme of a toddler’s nursery and toughen it up with some splashes of colour? Use lime green or orange to accessorise and create a less babyish bedroom. A lick of paint can work wonders and transform tired toddler furniture without having to fork out for the effect.
White walls provide the perfect blank canvas for accommodating the changing choices of your child. Why not make a functional feature of a white wall by securing storage units against it? Kidspace have a range of fun furniture units. Colourful baskets and boxes can be mixed and matched with existing colour schemes to add an element of interest, making much-needed storage solutions both practical and stylish.
