1. Stay Organized

While staying organized is essential in any area of your home, it's particularly significant in a child's room where toys, clothing, homework, and more can easily become disheveled and misplaced. To help keep their room as tidy as possible (and make it simple for them to put their belongings away), be sure to:

  • Store "like" items together, such as books, art supplies, blocks, etc.
  • Use open storage solutions, such as bins and shelves, so items are easily accessible.
  • Place boxes, bins, and shelves low to the ground, so your little one can reach them.
  • Label everything, so your child knows exactly where their belongings go.

2. Invest in a Comfy Mattress

Adults aren't the only ones who should be getting a restful night's sleep; kids deserve to have a comfy bed, too! With this in mind, it's a good idea to choose a mattress for your child that you'd be happy to sleep on yourself. You may be surprised by how much smoother their bedtime routine goes when they have a comfortable place to sleep each night. 

3. Make It Kid-Friendly

Before you invest in furniture for your child's bedroom, it's worth thinking about how the space will be most frequently used. Along with sleeping, what other activities, such as homework, reading, or playing, will your child be doing in the space? This will let you know exactly what pieces you should bring into the room. Don't forget to choose items that are the appropriate size for the space and the kid who'll be using it. A reading nook for a teenager shouldn't be the same size as one for a preschooler.

4. Use Vertical Space

If your child's bedroom is small, don't worry. You don't have to have a lot of space to design a room that looks and feels fabulous. The best way to bring a petite bedroom to life is by using vertical space like a pro. Placing floating shelves or bins on the walls is one great way to free up valuable floor space. Likewise, hanging surprising items, such as a toy airplane, from the ceiling is an easy way to make the room feel fun without adding clutter.

5. Include Them in the Design Process

Your child's bedroom should reflect their unique personality, taste, and interests. If it feels like all the other living spaces in your home, you've done something wrong. Don't be afraid to incorporate colors, patterns, and decorations that you probably wouldn't use in any other room. What's the best way to be sure you're putting together a bedroom that they'll adore? Include them in the decorating process, of course! Asking them what they think about the bedding, wall decorations, and color scheme you choose will ensure that the end result is a space that they're proud to call their own.
