Inspiration - Children's Room

What should you consider when decorating a children's room? What many want to achieve is a cosy, cozy and play-friendly environment for the child. How to achieve it? Below, we have collected some tips on how to easily spice things up with small decorating tips that will help you when decorating the children's room. We advise on everything from colors to knobs, hooks and handles, it is with small means that you create the big difference!

It is important to create a children's room that is practical and play-friendly while also providing space for relaxation and recovery for the child, but of course it is more fun if it is also nice to look at!


Choosing Colors in a Children's Room

The trend in children's rooms is moving away from wallpapers with large patterns and bold colors towards aligning the overall color scheme of the home, extending into the children's rooms. Neutral colors like beige, gray, and white are pleasant colors that easily create a relaxed atmosphere and blend well with the colors commonly found in most Scandinavian homes. Soft pastel colors such as light blue, light pink, mint green, and light yellow create a calm and harmonious feeling.

When selecting colors for the children's room, it's common to choose two or three accent colors to maintain consistency throughout the room. A great guideline to follow is the 60-30-10 rule for your accent colors:

60% - Applied to the base color, which includes large surfaces like walls or furniture.
30% - Used for complementary matching colors in the decor, such as curtains, rugs, and bedspreads.
10% ­- Reserved for decorative elements that add the finishing touch to the decor, such as paintings, toys, and cushion covers.

Mixing Different Materials

Incorporating various textiles is a great way to add depth to the room's decor. Use light and delicate curtains in a pleasant light shade to create an airy feeling. Cozy blankets and throws, soft cushions for a snug evening reading time, all neatly organized in a basket. Of course, don't forget to include all the stuffed animals and teddy bears.

Don't overlook the importance of a soft rug on the floor, designed for play. Natural elements like plants, baskets, and wooden details contribute to a natural and soothing atmosphere. Plants not only add beauty but also improve air quality in the room. As children grow a little older, they often find it exciting to watch something grow and take shape. A perfect way to involve them is by planting together what should be in their room.

To enhance the environment, opt for toys made from natural materials such as wood, cotton, and wool. Not only are these environmentally friendly, but they also offer children the opportunity to explore different textures and materials. Furniture for children's rooms has traditionally been painted in bright colors, but nowadays, you'll see more natural wood furniture in untreated wood finishes. You can either keep the furniture in its natural wood colors or paint it in one of the accent colors to create a cohesive look.

Organize the Children's Room

Make it easy for your child and reduce the time spent tidying up toys. With smart storage and organization, everything becomes more manageable. Instead of large drawers, opt for smaller storage solutions. This makes it easier for your child to find their toys. It's important that each toy has its designated place, just like we have our beds to sleep in.

Utilize shelves, baskets, and drawers for the toys. This helps children keep things in order when they're done playing. A dedicated space for drawings, photographs, and other creative projects adds a personal touch to the room. A great idea is to have a shelf specifically for this purpose. Use frames with plastic or plexiglass to protect the pictures and reduce the risk of damage.

Install hooks at a suitable height for your child. They can hang up their sweaters or bathrobes. You can vary the height of the hooks or use different colors to make it more fun. Wooden hooks provide a natural feel with various wood types like walnut, oak, beech, or ash. You can also paint the hooks to make them more personalized. If you want to use a colorful knob as a hook, you can easily purchase a matching screw.

Provide your child with their own wardrobe, complete with space for all their clothes. Sweaters, pants, pajamas, underwear, shoes, and formal wear should each have their designated spots. With clever solutions, the wardrobe can grow along with your child.

Lighting


Regardless of age, good lighting is important. Focus on creating spotlights (those that illuminate paintings, bookshelves, or desks) and include cozy lighting. In the reading nook or near the bed, don't forget to incorporate dim lighting to create a pleasant atmosphere where both adults and children want to spend time.

Create atmospheric lighting in the vicinity of the sleeping area. Do as shown in the picture and embed LED strips to create an extra cozy feeling. Perfect for both young and old, a little cozy lighting at home, hopefully, makes the darkness less intimidating.

Details

Enhancing the children's room with small details can truly make a big difference in both appearance and ambiance. Knobs and handles are a fantastic opportunity to create a cohesive and personal atmosphere in the room. If you choose untreated wood, it provides a natural feeling. Alternatively, you can paint them in the same accent color as the walls for a coordinated look. Moreover, it's practical to know that if you or the child gets tired of the color, it's easy to freshen them up with a new one.

To make the children's room a place where your child feels comfortable and at home, it's important to consider their interests and what makes them happy. If your child loves boats, fire trucks, or ice cream, why not incorporate these interests into the decor? You can decorate with bedding, pillows, or posters that feature motifs matching their passion. This creates a personal and pleasant atmosphere.

Another creative idea is to decorate the walls with paintings in the same theme or color scheme as the rest of the room. Animal motifs or playful patterns are often popular choices because they can stimulate imagination and add a playful touch to the room. Additionally, you can frame your child's own drawings and artworks to make the room even more personal and special.

What to Avoid


As we've discussed before, we want to create a cozy and safe environment for the children. Products like live candles, candleholders, and other decorative items made of glass, mirrored glass, and sharp objects should be excluded from the children's room.


The Whole Picture


If you want to create a cohesive look throughout your entire home, it's perfect if you stick to the same style in the children's room as in the rest of the home. Choose colors from the same color palette and tone, select details like handles, knobs, and hooks in the same finish or from the same series as those in the other parts of the home.

Maybe you can match wallpapers with the existing colors to create a more childlike expression. A hot tip from us is to create flatlays to see if the materials and colors match each other.

Good luck with your interior decorating!

We love seeing our products come to life in various settings. Feel free to share your children's room project by tagging your photos with @beslagonline or #beslagonline, for a chance to be featured.

We look forward to seeing your project and inspiring others!
