We make a children's room interior with our own hands
Each child needs his own personal space where he will be cozy and comfortable. Interior design and decoration of the children's room is a difficult, but creative and interesting process. After all, not only his mood, but also development depends on the child’s environment.
If the child is quite small, ideas on the design and decoration of the room fall entirely on the shoulders of the parents. Older children can already take part in the repair, selection of finishing materials and colors, furniture and accessories, or at least express their wishes. You can get ideas for decorating a nursery from numerous interior photos.
Children's room combines many functions, so it is necessary not only to decorate it well, but also correctly plan its zoning. Depending on the age of the child, the main zones are distinguished:
- space for games;
- rest zone;
- working area for training and homework.
Zoning is the correct location of the furniture, the distribution of lighting, as well as the appropriate decoration. So, if the playing and working areas require a lot of bright light, then in the rest area there is a fairly soft, subdued lighting. In a spacious children's room, where the bed is, you can even separate the easy screen or a movable partition. Kids love to play on the floor, so in the area for games will have the way a large, pleasant to the touch carpet. A good idea is to divide the zones with the help of floor or ceiling level differences, an open shelving on which books or toys will be stored.

When choosing colors for a child's room, first of all you need to consider age. Kids will enjoy bright, flashy colors, older children will prefer quieter pastel shades. The interior for a teenager can even be arranged in black and white with colorful accents.
It is necessary to remember about the effect of color on the human psyche. In addition, children are more susceptible to exposure than adults. The red and orange palettes increase the activity of the child, therefore they are not suitable for excitable boys and girls. Yellow shades fill the interior with positive energy and contribute to the improvement of intellectual abilities. Blue and violet colors, on the contrary, calm and stimulate the imagination. Green creates a harmonious, relaxing atmosphere and will be a good choice for children who fall asleep poorly. Pink color will give a feeling of safety and comfort, will contribute to creating a gentle atmosphere. Having studied different photos of children's interiors, one can understand how the finished room will look like.
Finishing materials for the design of a child's room should be as natural as possible and certainly safe for health. However, the use of too expensive materials, such as fine wood, natural stone, is not the best idea. Firstly, children can spoil the furniture, and secondly, their preferences and tastes change quickly with age, which implies frequent updating of the situation.
Planning the design of the children's room with their own hands, the wallpaper is better to choose washable. After all, the beloved child can pour paint on the wall or stain it with food, paint on the wallpaper. For the same reason, to finish the floor you need to choose materials that are easy to clean. For example, do not cover the entire area of the room with carpeted floors, especially light.
To create a separate unique world in the children's room, you can, of course, decorate the walls with painting or order wall-paper. But it is important to understand that such a decor can only be changed by repainting the walls or applying wallpaper. Children grow up quickly and the interior with decorations must be flexibly adjusted to their changing preferences.
The best option to decorate the walls, if you make a children's room with your own hands, will be vinyl stickers that are easy to stick and at least easy to remove. Today, you can choose a suitable option for decoration from a wide range of ready-made stickers (fairytale characters, animals, plants, patterns, inscriptions, and much more) or make something individual to order. You can implement almost any idea.
