Toddler’s Room 2018
Designing a room for toddlers who are fast outgrowing their baby rooms can be nightmare. Primarily because there are so many things to consider in ensuring that your toddler’s room is conducive for growth and development. Remember that it’s not just a room for sleeping as your toddler can learn and play there too. Aside from choosing the right furniture for your toddler’s room, you also have to consider the overall design of the room. It’s a matter of striking a balance between the aesthetics and practicality of the design.
Choose the Right Color Scheme
In 2017, pastels have been everywhere from quiet spaces for reading to the kitchen. Next year, the Pantone forecast suggests that while pastels are still popular, more vibrant shades will be fashionable. While this is great for making your whole house a bit more playful, it does pose a few problems for your toddler’s room. Vibrant colors are great stimuli and seem to encourage activity. This is great for getting them out of bed but not so great when getting them to sleep.
A good compromise for any child’s room is to use a soft neutral palette of cream shades and then add pops of color in your accessories. This should provide you with a good mix of colors to create a vibrant and exciting space for play without distracting them from getting sleep.
Find Furniture That They Can Grow Into
Finding furniture for children at a young age is a really frustrating task. Aside from size and shape, you also need to consider child safety in choosing furnishings. A raised bed with storage underneath will be ideal for those with limited space. Unfortunately, toddlers are still too little to climb these beds on their own. They might even get scared or irritated that they can’t move while in bed. The thought of falling from the bed may also prevent them from getting a good night’s sleep.
The best thing to do is look at bedroom sets that can grow with your child. There are beds with railings to protect your toddlers which can also be removed when they grow older. Storage space is also important in keeping the toddler’s room clean and organized. This will help create a calm atmosphere in the bedroom, once all their toys are packed away, and prepare the kids for sleep.
Role Play, Toys and Learning
Children spend their time in the bedroom doing lots of activities other than sleeping. They read books, play with toys, dress up, and play pretend. In doing so, they are learning fine motor skills and social skills and developing their imagination and creativity. These things are important for your child’s development that you might feel pressured to create a magical space for them.
In 2018, the trend for the child’s bedroom is all about bringing nature inside. It is about teaching kids to love their planet and environment at a really young age. Given the current climate change crisis, it is perhaps an unsurprising trend. Execute this trend with leafy wallpapers, plenty of toy animals, and a green as grass carpet in your toddler’s room. Hopefully this will result to a nature wonderland that your kids can love and cherish.
