There is a good relationship between the design of the children’s bedroom decoration and the psychological aspect, as the interior decoration reflects an aspect of their personality and psyche, as the child has to participate in the design of his room so that it becomes a creative painting. .
These rooms are transformed into their own space, all beauty, safety and compliance with their requirements. It can be said that children’s bedrooms are among the most important rooms that need to achieve creativity and innovation in their design and content.
Key points for selection
Interior designer Heba Saleh presents the main points to consider when designing a children’s bedroom to be safer and more comfortable. Therefore, every detail of this child’s space must be taken care of.
It is known that colors are the key to the success of any design in children’s bedrooms, so it is preferable to choose bright colors, such as orange, yellow, pink, green and purple, but it should not exceed 3 colors in the room, not to fall into the circle of confusion and chaos.
One of the tips relates to the choice of soft (neutral) shades and colors when you want quiet and simple decorations for children’s bedrooms.
As for the favorite colors of girls, they differ somewhat from those of boys, who tend to calm and pink colors, while men choose blue, which suits the quarrelsome and highly agile characters because of this color’s effect of calming the nerves.
For children who are characterized by a lack of activity, it is better to use yellow because it stimulates intellectual activity and keeps the mind awake, while red is used to boost the child’s self-confidence, according to the decorator.
Simplicity and safety
When children’s bedrooms are simply in designs, and less accessories, children have space to move, play and move around with ease. Therefore, it is recommended to choose durable furniture of good quality for children’s bedrooms for the reasons of their safety, taking into account their weight and expectations of an increase in the later period.
Hardwood or soft iron is usually ideal. In this context, it is necessary to stay away from furniture and accessories that can harm this age group, such as: sharp corners, flammable materials and oil heaters, while avoiding the use of candles in the decoration of bedrooms.
One of the most important things to consider is the safety and security of the child, especially if he is younger than 6 years old, as non-hazardous materials should be chosen, and the decor should not be designed with sharp corners not. or many artifacts that hinder the child’s movement and freedom in the room.
And most importantly – as the interior designer tells Al Jazeera Net – that the room is healthy, constantly ventilated and protected from the dangers of electrical openings.
For rooms in which more than one child participates, the color of the cupboards can be distinguished in different colors according to the desire of each child, as well as the walls, one side of the room can be painted in one color and the other side in a other color to satisfy the children.
Among the characteristic decorations are the low beds that come in the form of two or three beds vertically on top of each other. This type of decoration contributes to the exploitation of the available spaces in the children’s bedrooms.
Decorating children’s bedrooms with their drawings, artwork and crafts increases their confidence. On top of that, they put their fingerprints on the places where they live.
In children’s rooms, a few pieces of furniture are usually chosen, and accessories are used in a very limited way, so that there is room for the child to play and move freely.
As for the wall clock, it is one of the important things to train the child to keep time from an early age, and it can be chosen in his favorite colors that match the design of the wall, as recommended by the decorator.
The curtains give an atmosphere of comfort, and it is necessary to harmonize the colors between the curtains and the rest of the room elements. It is very important to protect children from exposure to sunlight in amounts that may harm them.
And you can choose curtains with drawings of cartoon characters that kids love.
Attention should be paid to the lighting of children’s bedrooms, and to the study of the places and corners in which they are scattered, while staying as far away as possible from unstable ground lighting, or those that stand in the way of children, to problems during movement to avoid and play.
It is also necessary to take care of the lighting near the place where children study, and to ensure that it is adequate and appropriate. Note that any confusion in the distribution of lighting may adversely affect the eyes of children.
So that the floor of the room does not let the child slip, and it is safer: to spread a large area carpet on it, which is the safest and most practical way, regardless of the type of floor in the room, whether it is parquet , marble or ceramics It should be cleaned as soon as possible, as the soil associated with the carpet can cause allergies to children.
If the budget for decorating the children’s bedrooms is modest, parents can master the use of paint, and decorate with colorful drawings, or with posters and pictures that please the children, and unleash their imagination.
The interior designer never recommends painting children’s walls in dark colors that reflect on the child’s psyche, so colors should always be adopted that evoke joy, optimism and happiness.
This space is very important for the child to be able to play with his toys and dolls, and to be able to do various activities such as drawing, coloring and playing with putty.
There should be room for storage because it gives the child happiness when he hangs his drawings on this special space or keeps gifts given to him.
The interior designer advises parents to leave the freedom to choose the room for the child, if he chooses it with conviction, he will maintain it and start learning to take responsibility, and also not to forget to hand over the freedom to him late by choosing the basic. pieces that make him more confident in himself.
The interior designer emphasizes the importance of developing a plan to design the interior decoration for the child, as it facilitates the task of designing children’s bedrooms. If, for example, he loves dinosaurs, then this animal may be the main focus of the decor plan, with the acquisition of accessories revolving around it.
She emphasizes that every part of the ideal children’s room suggests fun, adventure and curiosity, because the decorations and accessories of children’s rooms must reflect their hobbies and tendencies so that the surrounding environment is a friendly and joyful one.
