Is It Time To Refresh The Kids' Bedrooms?

Let's start with the fundamentals of designing a child’s bedroom. If you follow Feng Shui advice a bright room, good ventilation and soft colours are essential for a great child’s room. A decluttered, tidy bedroom without scattered clothes are all factors that prevent negative energy from getting trapped, thus risking harm to sleep quality and overall health. The position and orientation of the bed in the children's room are decisive, it is the first thing that a Feng Shui master notices! So, improve your bedroom layout to make the most of the space. This is how you will create a special atmosphere for your child.

Space and Definition

It is important that you place the headboard against a wall, so that you can see from the bed whoever might come in. Located in this way, it gives the child strength, intelligence, and energy - they are not withdrawn and the bedroom is a focal point in the room. The size of the bed is also of great importance. Choose a good bed for your child and don’t let them overgrow their bed. Change the size as they grow. A standard-size child's bed with a 90 x 190 cm or 90 x 200 cm bed will be perfect for them but a child's bed that has become too small for its size restricts their physical and emotional growth, as well as their academic progress.  For safety reasons make sure there is a space (or rails) between the edge of the bed and the wall for younger children to avoid the risk of them getting trapped in their sleep.


The decoration of the room is also important. 

The bedroom is the child’s intimate space, their own creative room to learn and develop in, and it is important that your child feels good there. Help decorate the room together, make it warm and welcoming and with their favourite characters, colours, etc. 

Think about curtains that block out light for those summer nights and perhaps a rug to keep it cosy. A few cushions thrown on the bed will also make a nice reminder, their bed will appear cosy on an evening. You will find pretty machine-washable rugs and cushions, suitable for the little ones 'rooms just in case they spill a drink, or some paint pots perhaps! 

Take inspiration from trends, but choose colours carefully. 

For a very young child, go for a decoration in multiple colours! They will stimulate their sensory faculties, but you don’t want to overstimulate them so keep it muted in some ways. Pastel blue and green are good colours for a child's room or perhaps peaches and dusky pinks. Anything too bright will most certainly overstimulate, but it’s good to note that the right colours will promote growth and progress, and encourage them to adopt a positive attitude day to day. White is also a good colour, it is neutral and relaxing, and helps to highlight the bedroom furniture in colour. To calm a hyperactive or difficult child, you can start on a restful white background, and add touches of dark colours, such as black, brown or dark green. Keep things comfy, and keep the toys tidy. A messy room is OK whilst they’re playing, but after, order is best!
