Children spend a lot of time in their rooms, whether they’re playing with their toys, doing their homework, having some quiet time, listening to music or just sleeping. Naturally, each child’s room should reflect their personality, so that they’re comfortable, happy and productive in their private space.
Decorating kids’ room can be great fun, and a wonderful opportunity to engage your child in choosing furniture and décor to reflect their interests and the things they love in their life – from their favourite childhood toys to the bands, TV shows or sports they’re passionate about. Emma from Mocka says, “When styling a kid’s bedroom, always remember to keep it fun. Choose décor that will inspire them and boost their imagination.”
Their room should be playful but also functional – so easy storage and items that can be easily moved around are part of keeping their space both organised and exciting.
Keep colour in mind too. We have done a blog on how colour can effect the emotion and mood of the room it is in here.
