How to Design Kid-Pleasing Rooms

Sun, 05 Apr 2020 by steve klein


School breaks are the perfect time to redo kids’ rooms in homes in Victoria TX. Kids spend a lot of time in their rooms, and we can make that time more enjoyable by creating a space that reflects their unique personalities.

The first thing to remember is that decorating a kid’s room isn’t permanent. Children change and grow, and their rooms should reflect their changing preferences. Keep backgrounds such as paint, wallpaper and carpeting neutral so they can remain in place as your child grows. Focus your updating efforts on easily changeable accessories like bedding, area rugs and wall art.

Even if your child is absolutely crazy about their favorite sport or cartoon character, don’t overdo the themes. Purchase a few themed items and let the rest of the décor be more versatile.

Take advantage of online shopping. If your child is elementary age, browse online to select two or three options that your child can then pick from. That way you can both feel good about how the room looks.

Teach kids gradual responsibility by giving them more decorating freedom as they get older. By the time they are entering their teens, you can give them a spending limit and let them take the lead in shopping.

Make sure kids have enough storage space and their furniture is functional. Younger kids will need places to keep their toys, as well as clothing storage that they can safely access. Older kids will need a desk with storage, good lighting and a comfortable chair.

Decorating a brand new house is fun for the whole family. Choosing a home together is just as rewarding. Gather the kids and browse our floor plans together. Let them pick out which bedroom they want and encourage them to think about how they’d like to decorate it. Our interactive floor plans let you “tour” a new home from the comfort of your couch.
