Decorating children’s rooms when they’ve outgrown a nursery or preschool style can be one of the major tests of parenthood. Youngsters can be old enough to know something of what they want, but are not sure how to bring it about. That’s the challenge for Mom and Dad.
A good place to start is by looking through the child’s favorite books or toys. If the child is old enough, he or she can be involved by suggesting favorite colors, interests such as sports, animals or the environment, or favorite story characters.
Wall Coverings and Floor Coverings
Once the theme or color scheme is chosen, it’s time to starting shopping for fabric, wall coverings and floor coverings that will bring the decor inspiration to life. Choosing a primary print or pattern will give the room’s decor a good starting point, so take time selecting this key element. Despite your excitement, and that of your youngster, don’t buy fabric, wall coverings or even neat-looking kids area rugs on a first visit. This room decor will have to last for at least a few years, given the family budget, so it’s well worth taking time to make sure the theme won’t go stale in a short time.
