Ways to Set Up a Creative Kid's Room │ Megafurniture

Setting up a fun, comfortable, and safe place for your little ones must be a fantastic experience. It's nice to furnish the room with colourful, cool, and artistic items. Using elaborate details and creative furniture will help your kids enjoy their homestay while learning and developing independence. Most of all, aside from all the colours and beauty, it's crucial to build a safe environment for your children.

Whether you're going for a cartoon-themed area, an artsy place, or a cosy nook, here are some ways you can set up a kid's room your children will love for years to come.

Keep the Room Simple

Keep the Room Simple

Give your kids more space to create and play by keeping your room simple and your furniture to a minimum. Choose neutral colours for your base and add some soft accent details for a subtle and relaxing space. Set up proper storage areas for the books and toys to keep a spacious and uncluttered look.

Create Space for Playing

Create Space for Playing

For kids, a bedroom isn't just for sleeping. It's a castle, a race track, or a playground. While giving your kids a cosy spot for resting, provide them with an area where they can play and have fun. Your little ones will surely love some online finds like a rocking toy, a ball pit, a mini tent, and plush toys. Roll out a mat or a soft area rug to make your room safer.

Save Space

Save Space

Space constraints often limit the potential of your room. A bunk bed or a trundle can better help you utilise your small space. Simply push the furniture towards your wall to give you more usable space for other furniture like their closet or study table. Having a space-saving bed leaves you with additional reading and play zones.

Make the Most Out of Your Storage

Make the Most Out of Your Storage

The secret to keeping a clean and uncluttered room is your storage. To keep a clean and well-maintained room, organise your children's clothes, linens, and toys inside a sliding door wardrobe with shelves and pull-out drawers. The sliding feature prevents your kids from bumping on door fixtures or the door itself when opened. The combination of small and big drawers gives you a versatile area to keep stuff in place. Use baskets and trays to categorise your items and teach your kids how to organise.

Make it Colourful

Make it Colourful

Kids love colours- lots of colours. But choosing the right combinations may be tricky. You might choose some hues that simply don't complement each other, which eventually become an eyesore. To successfully incorporate colours, choose an accent wall that you want to highlight or stick to neutral paint and go with colourful toys and patterns. You don’t have to overdo your combinations to make your room alive. To give you a clear theme, look for a Pantone or combinations to follow.

Build an Art Space for Your Little Minds

Build an Art Space for Your Little Minds

Ignite your little one's creativity by setting up an art corner in their room. A simple study table, wall shelves, lots of colouring pages, and art materials will give you a fun and valuable time with your kids. Develop your kids' creative minds by doing art exercises or reading books together in your little nook.

Add a Theme

Add a Theme

If you're fond of exciting decorations, try decorating your kids' room depending on the season or the month's celebration. Explore various themes and make your decorating activity something they'd look forward to. Use the opportunity to teach them some skills and train them to clean and maintain their spaces.

A Comfortable Bed 

A Comfortable Bed

No matter how decorative your bedroom is, the main piece will always be the bed. When choosing the bed for your children's room, make sure to check their needs, your space, the quality of materials, and the safety of your furniture. If you're working on a compact space, a single to super single bed frame is a good choice. For shared spaces, the go-to is a bunk bed. Low-profile beds and loft beds are also popular, especially for preteens. Upholstered beds have paddings and soft edges that are safe for kids who love to run around the room.

Get a Hypoallergenic Mattress

Get a Hypoallergenic Mattress

Your kids' safety does not end with your choice of furniture. Keep your little ones away from allergens by getting mattresses with anti-bacterial, anti-dust mite, and anti-fungal properties. When choosing a mattress, it's also important to get a unit that supports your kids' sleeping positions to make sure that they'll enjoy their time in dreamland.

Pay Attention to Beddings

Pay Attention to Beddings

Soft is not always the most comfortable, even for kids. When choosing a pillow for your children's room, consider a balance of comfort and support to maintain their sleep posture. Like the mattress, opt for pillows with anti-dust mite and anti-bacterial properties to keep your kids from frequent itching and sneezing caused by allergies. If you notice that your child sweats a lot during sleep, replace your old blankets with breathable ones. 

Be Mindful of Your Kids' Screen Time

Be Mindful of Your Kids' Screen Time

The television and gadgets can be very distracting for your kids, especially if it's already time to go to bed. It's important to train your kids to manage their use of phones or gadgets or the hours they spend in front of the TV. Even better, keep the phones outside their bedroom. To help you regulate your kids' screen time, do some fun activities to boost their interest and give them a hobby outside the technological world. Although it's challenging to keep a consistent gadget-less routine, it's worth starting at an early age.

Leave a Room for Upgrades

Leave a Room for Upgrades

While decorating a kids' room, it's essential to plan for future changes as your little ones grow up, especially when you deal with limitations in renovations. An effective way to keep the room customisable is to choose neutral paint and minimal fixtures. Accessorise your neutral room with coloured bedspreads, artworks, and replaceable accents. Invest in an efficient storage that you can upgrade later on.

When designing your kids' room, consider your children's preferences, especially in terms of the colours and the themes they want. Capture your little ones' personalities and let them have a sense of achievement once they see how their room turned out. Also, make the process fun and fulfilling at your end.
