Being a parent is no small feat. I’m still not a parent myself. Just a paw parent, actually, but that doesn’t count. Some of my friends have started to have kids of their own though. I grew up as an only child and have no experience with kids whatsoever. So, I take this article as a research for myself and for others who are thinking of having their little bundle of joys soon too. I’m not going to dive into how to care for a child. This is a paint and design blog. Therefore, we’re focusing on those things. ? Here are some kid’s bedroom ideas for you to try!
For the Newborn Babe
According to my friends who have kids of their own, this is the phase of the baby’s life that the parents don’t get sleep. At all. You’re low on energy. High on caffeine. And always on edge about when the next crying tantrum will begin. In this article, we’ve presented calming pastel hues that can soothe both you and the baby. Grounding colors like grays are also included which can be very balancing in times of high-stress.
For the Tottering Tods
Time flies by so fast. One day they’re sleeping in their little cots all swaddled up; the next, they’re running around the room in a wake of mess and disorganization. Don’t add more stress into your daily routine by avoiding the extra clean up. Start your tots young with teaching them to be more independent, especially in cleaning up after themselves. The Montessori philosophy goes so much farther than just teaching kids how to pick up their own toys. But, it’s a good place to start!
For the Cheeky Child
Chase Away Bedtime Monsters from Your Kid’s Room with Cheerful Colors
I think around the age 5 or 6, kids start getting the concept of monsters under the bed (or in the closet, take your pick). Imaginations start running wild and it can be hard to calm your kids at times. Make your kids feel safe in their own bedrooms by involving them in the design process. They’re probably old enough now to know what their favorite colors are. Get more kid’s bedroom ideas in this article!
More Kid’s Bedroom Ideas
What I like about designing kid’s bedrooms is that you can go as far as you want with being fun and whimsical. We’ve got more ideas here in the blog for you in case you want to make the space feel a little bit more personal. Feel like your kid is growing up too fast? Keep track by painting on a playful height measuring stick on the wall so your kid can check himself. Raising a little Einstein? Paint an accent wall with chalkboard paint so your future ivy league graduate can get a head start!
Boysen’s Antibacterial Paint
Just as how hardworking parents are when it comes to their kids, your paint should be too! Of course, color is definitely important when it comes to child development. But, there are other things you have to consider when coming up with ideas for your kid’s bedroom. Boysen has a line of antibacterial paint called Healthy Home. It’s a low-odor, low-VOC, lead-safe paint. It’s formulated with an antibacterial property that helps keep your walls safe from harmful bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella. It keeps mold and mildew from forming as well! Perfect for little kids who like to see the world through their mouths.
