The Minimalist Guide To Decorating A Kids Room #decor #kids

~The Minimalist Guide to Decorating a Kid's Room~
By Jane Blanchard
A minimalist approach to designing a child’s room can yield many benefits. A number of design suggestions for kids’ rooms seem cluttered and noisy, and they often impose a high level of maintenance upon a family. Cluttered spaces have even proven to increase stress levels for children and adults. With a few targeted and minimalistic design choices, you can make a child’s room both fun and functional.
Open Space


Children like to play, and the reality of childhood is that they’re going to spend more days playing indoors than they’d prefer. One way to make life a little easier for kids is to create an open space within a room, allowing them to use their imaginations rather than dealing with a lot of furniture and items. This carries with it the added benefit of making it easier for a child to clean a room, and parents can readily tell whether the job has been done right.
Containers

A child’s life includes owning a lot of prized possessions, and all of those toys, stuffed animals and collectibles need to be contained. By installing a few containers in each bedroom, parents can teach children the value of maintaining an orderly personal space. When they want to need where something special is, they’ll be able to locate it quickly because they’ll know exactly where it belongs. An added bonus is that dressers can double as both sources of visual interest and storage.
Focus on Colors

Children often enjoy personalizing their own spaces, and they’ll take that effort as far as their parents might permit and then a little further. If a child is old enough to understand the basic process of designing a space, that’s a good time to help them starting discussing how to personalize a room. The focus of this effort should be on color choices, rather than radical designs. A minimalist approach can allow parents to create a space that they and their children can live with for years to come.
Area Rugs


A child’s room can be a maintenance nightmare, but one way to attack the problem is to install areas rugs. They can be removed and cleaned, and parents can place a different rug in the room in the meantime. When the inevitable messes of childhood happen, a cheaper area rug can be thrown out.
