The environment in which your children grow up, starting from their bedrooms, largely influences their personalities. Creating their own mini-world will make them feel safe and satisfied. Adding a touch of Disneyland to your home is always a good idea and your children will love it. Bringing their favourite superheroes or cartoon characters to life will make them enjoy in every second spent in their own little empire. They should have a possibility of building a pillow fort in the middle of the room, of running and chasing each other, playing and hiding – it makes their childhood memorable. This is exactly why you should give your best and include your children in the process of decorating.
Urban Tree House
Wasn’t a tree house everybody’s dream in childhood? So, why don’t you take it to the next level and build it indoors? This is a perfect solution if you have high ceilings. Your children could use wooden ladder to climb up to their lofted beds, placed in an improvised tree house in the middle of their room. The thrill of climbing up and down the ladder will make them feel like explorers looking for a new adventure. You can place a bookshelf right under the tree house, so your children could sneak in and read their favourite fairy tales, sitting on the floor surrounded with fluffy pillows. Your wooden floors will definitely contribute to the cosy atmosphere, and your kids will love it. You can paint their walls using motifs from the movies about Indiana Jones, the most famous explorer whose fedora is a symbol of adventure and thrill.
Fairy Tale Magic
Decorating your children’s room by using some elements of a fairy tale will bring joy to their lives and smile to their faces. There is a wide range of possible solutions, and it will depend on their favourite fairy tale. If it is Cinderella – why don’t you make them a bed placed into an improvised pumpkin coach? If they like Ariel, the little mermaid, consider creating an under-the-sea atmosphere by installing a gigantic aquarium full of colourful fish, together with a red crab representing Sebastian. There is also Pocahontas who lives in harmony with nature. You can use her tent as an inspiration for your children’s room – by building their own tent indoors, where you will hide their beds.
A Sky Full of Stars
If your children love science and astronomy, you can incorporate those elements into their room, too. You can make a model of the Solar System and place it on ceiling – so that your children can look at it from their beds at night. You can also represent a starry night sky above their heads, by depicting the most important constellations such as the Great Bear and the Little Bear. They will be able to learn something new through play, which definitely secures their further development into intelligent young people.
Backyard = Playground
If you have a backyard, you can put it to good use by installing a see-saw, a swing and a slide, so that your children can enjoy outside as well as inside. In this way, they will be active and healthy at the same time. You can also have a basket, so that you can shoot hoops with your children. This is a perfect family time when everyone is participating and having fun.
As you can see, possibilities are limitless. All you can do is to include your kids in the process of home decorating and listen to their wishes and ideas. Your skills and craftsmanship, in combination with their creativity and imagination are a guarantee for success.
