Decorating With Your Child
When it comes to decorating your child’s bedroom, view it as a chance to bond with your daughter. This is an opportunity to let her creativity shine and allow her to express herself. After all, she will be spending the most time in this room. However, help guide her choices to best meet the needs of the home. For example, when I was a girl, my dream was to paint my bedroom lime green. Yikes! My parents worked with me to find a mutual compromise by using the bright color I loved in accessories throughout the room. They were happy with the final product and I had the bedroom of my dreams. Remember that compromise is possible between you and your child.
As a parent, you also are aware of how they will be growing and changing. Space for a dollhouse may not be needed as your daughter reaches high school. Consider this as you work together to plan for the new bedroom décor.
Girls Bedroom Furniture
When it comes to choosing the perfect bedroom furniture, you want to look for function and quality. While you can easily buy a standard bed, there are many modern options that have unique storage features. Consider a bed with drawers in the frame for shoes or toys. Or, for a smaller room, a loft bed is the perfect way to create more useable space for a desk or a play set.
Also, keep in mind furniture options that she can use as she grows, like dressers or added shelving. Little girls may not need all the space yet, but a teen girl’s closet might need more storage if she's a frequent mall visitor!
Little Girl Bedroom Ideas
For a girl in elementary school or early middle school, they are looking for space to play! Incorporate areas for toy storage or shelving to display her prized possessions. Utilize bedding and curtains to add color to the room, which can be changed out as she gets older.
Safety should always be a priority in little girls’ rooms. Be sure to keep everything low to the ground and in reach, so you avoid any falling object accidents. If there are shelves above her head, include stools to help her reach higher places carefully.
Teen Girl Bedroom Ideas
Most likely, teenagers will want to be an active part of the bedroom décor planning, incorporating their favorite trends in to the mix. String lights and gallery wall photo collages are very trendy right now and a versatile décor option.
If possible, make space for homework and projects with a desk or study space. Try to keep distractions in this area at minimal if possible, so she is able to focus on the task at hand. Another space she may need is an area to get ready. A small mirror and table will allow her space to store makeup or accessories to get ready for the day.
