Although we are still deep in the heart of summer, most of us will be aware that autumn is only just around the corner.
And just as we should start think about gathering together school supplies, the new season also gives us the perfect opportunity to ensure that our children’s bedrooms are up to scratch.
As kids spend a large amount of time outdoors, then there’s a good chance that they’ll have brought plenty of dirt back with them!
So be sure to have a good clean-up, and there’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint on the walls to make everything feel new again. Neutral tones like the ones used in the bedroom above are always a good option as they look modern and can also help a small room feel much more light and airy.
As children have a tendency to grow at alarming rates, it’s also a good idea to double-check whether their bedroom furniture matches their growing bodies.
But one thing that can often catch parents out, is the inevitable confusion over bed sizes. With differences between UK and European bed sizes, it can create a headache. So be sure to check Bedstar’s mattress size guide to make sure that you get the right size for your child’s room. And don’t forget to make sure that their desk and chair are adequate for helping them do their homework either.
Of course, our children’s bedrooms shouldn’t necessarily be purely functional places, as we know these spaces are important sites for their imaginations to run riot.
So be sure to encourage your kids to help with the room designs. And whether that means decorating in the colours of your child’s favourite football team, or even creating a very girly pink-coloured room, there are plenty of fun ways to come up with some cool room designs.
And finally, regardless of what age your child is, they will probably be fairly adept at making plenty of mess. So this is why storage options should always be factored into your room design.
Whether that means investing in a divan bed for extra storage space, or even getting to grips with some DIY storage ideas, it’ll all prove invaluable later on in the year.
So just as you should consult a good mattress size guide to plan for their growing bodies, so you should also plan for their growing collection of toys, books and gadgets!
