Creating a Kid Approved Room

Have you ever wanted to make your child's room one that they would treasure forever and always? For many people, creating a kid-approved room can often seem a little confusing, if not down right impossible. If you have experienced the pain and frustration of not being able to create your child's dream room, then now you are in luck. Here are a few simple guidelines designed to help you create the perfect room for your child, no matter what your budget.

  • Gender does play a role. Contrary to what many would like to think, gender does actually play a role in being able to create a kid-approved room. Granted, it may not play a particularly large role, but it still plays a role. Regardless of what the child's interests are, you should always put a little spin on the main theme. For example, my daughter loves pirates. So we went with a pirate theme, just a little pinker than what is traditionally held as "piratey."
  • How old is your child? The age of your child is going to play a huge role. You do not design the same kind of room for a 15 year-old that you do for a 5 year-old. Try to get your room as age appropriate as possible, while still keeping it within the interests of the child. This is something that will depend largely on a case-by-case basis.
  • What is your child's interest? Get to know your child and what their interests are. Perhaps the single biggest factor in successfully creating a kid-approved room is that it will appeal to their interests. This means that the room is geared towards the child, rather than to what you like. Yes there can be some give and take, but remember that the room is going to be for the child, not you. Think about your room; would you like someone else to come in and make all the decisions for you?
  • Allow room for growth. Always allow for the fact that your child will be growing up and that their interests will change. Just because your child absolutely loves a room at the age of 4 that does not mean that they will love it at the age of 8, let alone at the age of 12. Try to create a room that can grow and change with the child.
