Manageable projects for nurseries and children's rooms
We packed this section into our home projects site as working for a nursery, updating your little boys or girls room is so rewarding satisfying and brings such a lot of joy to kids that who could not want to embark on some projects for children's rooms?
Children thrive on imagination, and we know it's all too easy to let the kids sit and stare at the goggle box, channel surf, Facebook and social media all day, but if you decorate their nursery so that they have other stimulation from an early age, you may just find that they grow into a more real and imaginative life than if they have your everyday bland parent type of room. Kids love bright colours, patterns, textures and shapes. Decorating a room with these, perhaps adding bright custom painted window shutters, brightly coloured lampshades, painted stencils on the walls, all these kind of ideas for childrens rooms create a thriving atmosphere for them throughout their most influential character forming years.
Why make blue for boys and pink for girls rooms?
There is a classic debate about which colour to make the nursery or boy or girls rooms theme. Yes we appreciate historically everyone has asked for blue or pink, but we live in the 21st century surely! There's no need anymore to go this route, of course it can be fun to make a classically designed boys room in baby blue, but why not add splashes of other colours to liven it up? If you have some rounded windows these could easily become themed with portholes like on a boat, have a look at these round shutters they are the perfect example of making a room look magical for a child. So when designing a room whether for a boy or girl think about the overall patterns and textures you'd like them to experience - check out these rugs for children aren't they a winner - that's what we're talking about. Remember the days of stopping at Ikea's bouncy ball rooms. How many colours were in those! And there's nothing to say you cannot go for the full primary and secondary colours in a child's room, in a way the more the better, as long as we don't end up with brown!!
Safety in design for nurseries and children's rooms
We believe it is very important to use safe materials and designs with a childs room. Always check with manufacturers, if you're buying furniture make sure it's fire safe, even the paint you use should be low emission and lead free as a matter of course. We think the more organic a kids room can be the better, so use natural materials, wood and soft edges, make sure the environment is safe and rewarding. There are loads of places to buy low chemical content paints and stains, we'll help with useful information like this and so many more excellent projects for your child's room.
