An important step towards contributing to the overall growth and development of your child is to decorate their bedrooms. A child’s room is their safe haven and their own personal space in the entire house. It is a place where they are most comfortable and find solace throughout their childhood, and when they reach their teenage years, it becomes their sanctuary. A well decorated room can positively impact your child’s mood, which is why choosing colours that lighten the interior space are bound to make them feel happy. A well decorated bedroom plays an important role in creating the perfect environment for your child to be creative and explore his/her strength and weaknesses.
All the aspects of a bedroom such as the lighting, space, colour and furnishing etc. play a significant role in creating an environment that is calm and conducive for children to explore and discover their identity to find who they really are.
Colour of the room
The colour of a room has an inherent connection with the mood of a person. Certain colours are linked with having positive or negative feelings. For example, the colour red has been associated with warmth, zeal and optimism, but when used in a child’s room it tends to have an overpowering affect and hence will not inculcate a calm and restful atmosphere.
Certain tones of pink are known to be quite restful but be mindful of hot pinks in your child’s bedroom as this is likely to have an undertone of energy and fun, which is likely to affect younger children and have an adverse reaction and hamper their bedtime.
On the other hand, lilac is linked with spiritualism and is known to be a victorious choice for the bedroom, offering an environment that is free from stress for your child.
There are several tips and tactics for decorating your child’s bedroom successfully, but perhaps the best one is to think of how flexible the space can be. If you consider a storage room; if their possessions can be stored away easily this will pave the way for a neat and tidy environment, which in turn will result in your child being happy. A cluttered room is known to have a cluttered state of mind and can hinder your child’s creativity and affect their study time in case they are unable to find things that they really need. Thus, to have a clear mind, you will need to eliminate all the chaotic elements which will not only inculcate tidiness in your child from a very young age, but will also give them the room (both in their mind and personal space) for creativity and education. If the set up of your child’s bedroom offers all these things, it is will make them feel more positive and secure about themselves as well as the world around them.
Let your child decide
When your child has the ownership of their bedroom, you can let them share their input to pick and choose what they want on their walls. While this may come across as trivial initially, it gives them ‘control’ over their bedroom and also the ability to decide for themselves along the way giving them a valuable lesson on how to exert this control and harness it and to what extent. This will also give your child a higher sense of self-esteem which is very valuable in their formative years.
In order to inculcate responsibility in your child which extends to their creativity and academics collectively, decorating their room in a certain way is important for your child’s bright future. Make sure that your children take care of their bedrooms, keep it clean and tidy at all times and they will carry forward this habit throughout.
By creating a peaceful and comfortable space for your child, taking into consideration the right choice of colours that will enhance positive vibes; furniture that offers flexibility, you will be able to provide them with a sleep zone and a sanctuary all compiled within the four walls of their bedroom. Your child’s bedroom is their special space and you should keep that in mind while designing it.
