Designing kids room needs a different approach that the regular rooms. It includes the design idea, the choice of the materials, and the appropriate furniture placement. The formula can be abbreviated by the formula “ABC”. The letter “A” stands for Adaptability (easily adapted), the letter “B” stands for Brightness (bright), and the letter “C” is for cleanability (easy to clean).
Adaptability. The first formula means that a room arrangement can be adapted to the growth and needs of the kids. Of course, the interests and needs of kids who are growing are more volatile than the adults. However, it is impossible for parents to always follow every kid wants. The solution is to modify the background of the room, either by adding new paint or wallpaper or updating the accessory.
Brightness. The second formula can be interpreted that a room should be set up with a bright display. This can be manifested through the selection of bright color and materials, accessories, furniture. The color will psychologically stimulate kids’ imagination and makes the room memorable. The application of pale and pastel colors makes the room vibrant and cool. But when a kid grows up into a teenager, he would tend to prefer strong colors which are fun and contemporary.
Cleanability. The third formula means that a kid’s room should be easy to clean. This formula is a prerequisite for the design of a kid’s room in terms of the choice of basic materials, coatings used on walls, floors, and furniture. Indeed, kids may not be diligent in cleaning up their room. However, as parents you can help them to choose the coating material and furniture that is easy to clean, such as vinyl wallpaper, oil-based paint, and sheets with a nano-technology fabric that can ward off dust.
