How to Create the Perfect Child’s Bedroom

1. Focus on Comfort

Sleep is one of the most essential factors in ensuring that your child is happy and healthy, and one of the best ways to help them sleep better is by ensuring that their bedroom is comfortable.

Finding the right mattress for their sleep needs is an investment, and with so much choice out there you might find the search daunting.

Luckily, experts such as Archers Sleep Centre stock a wide range of single mattresses for you to choose from, and their team members are on hand to help you make the purchase that suits you.

2. Get Smart with Storage

Most children accumulate a lot of belongings, whether it’s toys, books, crafting supplies, and not to mention their clothes.

This makes finding the right storage solutions essential for helping them keep their bedrooms tidy. Built-in storage, such as those designed by Sharps will allow you to tidy your child’s belongings away, without having bulky furniture pieces that break up their play space.

3. Get Them Involved

Your child’s bedroom should be a reflection of their personality, and when you involve them in the decorating process you’ll be in a better position to create a space that they love and feel proud of.

Let them help you pick out colour schemes and wallpaper. Of course, children can change their mind a lot as they grow, so peel and stick wallpaper solutions such as those from Peel & Paper can make redecorating easier.

If they love to draw, display their finished work around their room, this will help to encourage their creativity.

4. Ensure the Room Grows with Your Child

As our children grow quickly, it’s a good idea to opt for furniture that can change with your child, such as convertible cribs that turn into toddler beds, or desks that can be adjusted to better match their height.

And, for your staple furniture, it’s a good idea to invest in timeless quality. The longer it lasts, and stays fashionable, the less you’ll have to spend on re-furnishing later down the line.

5. Promote Relaxation and Down Time

While your child’s bedroom should be a space of creativity and play, it should also allow them to unwind and relax before bed.

Consider creating a cosy reading nook that can allow them to engage in story time before bed. Not only will this take some of the entertainment reliance away from screens, but it can help to promote a love of literature that will spark ideas and inspiration.

And if they struggle to sleep, you could install built in speakers that can play soft sounds or sleepy, meditative podcasts.
