Designing and decorating a kid’s room has never been easier. With so many ideas and décor options available on the market, now you have all the freedom in the world to create something magnificent. But this time, instead of designing it according to your taste (like the nursery), let your child express his feelings and desires. Take into account his wishes and create the most dazzling room together. There are tons of tips and tricks that can help you design a comfortable, appealing, and stylish kid’s room without breaking the bank. All it takes is doing a thorough research and absorbing all the ideas.
Invest in Comfy Childrens Bedding
Having a good mattress is great for having a good night’s sleep. But did you know that the type of bedding can seriously affect sleep as well?! Sleeping on a synthetic fabric will not only interrupt your child’s sleep but may also cause skin allergies that might manifest in the form of itchiness, red itchy patches, etc. And truth be told, avoiding that is quite easy, all it takes is leaning on the good old cotton.
Being a natural fibre, cotton is a type of fabric that’s extremely soft and comfortable, so it isn’t strange that’s the first choice in making bedding, especially kids bedding. It’s also breathable and it absorbs moisture effectively. Cotton also has temperature control properties, meaning that it can keep your body cool in summer and warm in winter. On top of that cotton is a hypoallergenic fabric that won’t irritate the skin, so it isn’t strange that’s the first choice for newborns’ bedding as well.
In case your child already has some skin condition, it would be best to choose organic cotton. That way, you can be 100% sure that the chosen bedding is made of cotton that hasn’t been chemically treated at all. Moreover, it’s extremely durable and easy to care for, and even if you wash it often, it can last a lifetime.
What’s more, cotton kids bedding is available in numerous designs, colours and sizes, giving you the opportunity to choose design and colour according to your child’s desires. Letting your child choose his bedding design is essential because, in the end, he’ll sleep on it and not you. You, on the other hand, get the chance to choose the fabric which is far more important, comfort-wise. By doing that, both of you will be satisfied with the choice, and both of you’ll contribute to creating a stylish and comfortable kids’ room.
Install a Kids Wallpaper that Matches His Taste
Quite often, parents associate wallpapers with living rooms and dining rooms, but little do they know that wallpaper can make a huge difference in a child’s room as well. Not only can it add playfulness and style, but it can also be used for personalising the room.
With the dazzling array of modern kids wallpaper options, now, your child has the chance to choose a wallpaper with his favourite character, colour, hobby or animal. Can you imagine your child’s happiness and thrill finding out that he gets the chance to choose the wallpaper for his own room?! Priceless.
Wallpapers can really reflect your child’s taste, so this time, let your little one pick. The one thing you can help your little one with is the wallpaper’s material. Speaking of material, vinyl is among the most commonly used without a doubt. Usually, a thin layer of polyvinyl chloride or acrylic is applied on these wallpapers which makes cleaning them piece of cake.
They’re so durable and of quality that you can even scrub some stubborn stains without damaging them. And since kids can be clumsy quite often, these wallpapers can even withstand their constant spills. Even if your little one touches the wallpaper with his sticky and greasy fingers, you can clean it without a problem. Amazing, right?!
Now, since your little one will be in charge of the wallpaper’s design and you, the parent, of its quality, make sure to find a place that can provide you with an extensive range of kids’ wallpapers that won’t compromise one or the other. By doing that, you’ll easily get the best of both worlds.
Create a Cosy Reading Nook
In case you have that creative side in you, together with your child you can make a DIY project and create his very own reading nook. You’ll just need to browse online and find the best reading nook idea for your little one.
If your little one loves to read and colour while lying on the ground, satisfaction will be guaranteed once you finish the project of creating this nook with the help of a teepee tent. Adding pillows, fluffy blankets and Christmas lights can help you make it comfier and warmer, perfect for those free afternoon activities. As a finishing touch, for an additional dose of comfort, count on the help of the soft kids bedding as an extra floor padding layer.
Add an Aroma Diffuser
The last thing you can pick for creating a cosy kid’s room is an aromatherapy oil diffuser. The choice is so huge that you can easily find an all-in-one aromatherapy oil diffuser safe to use around children. By choosing this type, you’ll be investing in one that can act as a night lamp that emits calming sounds too while still being able to serve its primary purpose – to gently diffuse essential oil.
And you can get all of this without the diffuser compromising its appearance. Your child can choose from the extensive range of appealing diffuser designs, shapes, sizes and colours, and you will get the chance to choose from the large selection of features. As we all know by now, aromatherapy is designed for the whole family because the benefits from it are huge.
Except for improving your overall well-being, specific essential oils can also improve the sleep quality of your child. During the seasons of flu and cold, you can also rely on the use of aromatherapy and use eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary for improving your child’s breathing.
It’s said that all of these essential oils can reduce congestion and inflammation. For those times when it’s hard for your kid to stay focused and calm, you can add a few drops of lavender, lemon, and rosemary essential oil to the diffuser. The list of essential oils is huge and so are your chances to find a specific oil or a blend that can aid your child’s needs.
