Here are tips to organize a child’s room:
2 years old
- At this age, children are more interested in bright, flashy and cheerful colors. Choose blue, red or yellow colors instead of pastels. Find attractive motif for the curtains or bed linen with bright colors.
- Too bright lights can dazzle the baby, so avoid using it.
- Do not stick a sticker on the inside of the crib, because the adhesive of the stickers usually contain toxic. The tip of the sticker is also easily peeled off and put into their mouth.
2-4 years old
- Toddlers at this age are actively moving so that the arrangement of the room also has to consider the traffic security. Make sure there are no messy wires or an open socket.
- The bed should be made short. Or, attach a safety (padded board, or something) at the bedside so that the child does not fall during sleep.
- Install some interesting posters on the wall, such as the pictures of various kinds of animals or large alphabets.
- The window must have a trellis or lattice to anticipate the child to climb out the window.
- All furniture should have no sharp edges.
5 – 12 years old
- You should involve your school-aged children in determining the room design because at this age children are able to express their wishes.
- Choose a theme that the children like.
- In addition to bed and wardrobe, desk and table lamps are also required.
- Avoid putting a computer or a television in the child’s room, because you cannot always control what they watch or what is accessed on the computer. Familiarize children with watching television and playing computer in the family room or workspace.
- Install hanging cabinets or drawers under the bed for storing knick-knacks or books so that the room always looks tidy.
Another important thing should be considered in a kids’ bedroom is the cleanliness. Make sure that the room has good ventilation, so that the room is not stuffy and always get a light and fresh air.
