Kid’s Room Decor Through the Early Years

Let’s welcome our guest blogger, Caryn Bailey of http://rockinmama.net/.

Before I had fully recovered from my son’s nighttime awakenings, he was a walking, talking toddler. And along with his change in preference for toys and books, came the request for a “big boy” room and all that entails.  While I enjoyed setting up my son’s nursery, I recognized how quickly the time goes by and how rapidly their preferences change. Here are some tips for children’s room decor through the early years.

Opt for primary paint colors.  Children quickly outgrow pastels and you’ll gain longevity with vibrant shades of red, green, blue, and yellow.

Change it up with removable wall decals, wallpaper, and wall art.  The entire vibe of a room can be transformed without spending a lot of time, money or effort.

Consider convertible bedding for use with a crib and a toddler bed.

Keep it simple and versatile. Consider how much use you’ll get out of decor accessories before purchasing such items.  Invest in books and age-appropriate learning toys to fill the space.

Keep safety in mind. Ensure that all decor items are age-appropriate and free from choking or entanglement hazards.

A child will spend a great deal of time growing up in his/her room. Creating meaningful memories of this time can be accomplished easily and prudently with a little creativity.
