It’s no secret that parents will and can do everything to allow their kids to live comfortably. They work hard to be able to send them to a reputable school and enroll the little ones in extracurricular activities. They plan trips in and out of town so that the children can immerse themselves in various cultures at a young age.

Of course, parents try to make the house where the kids will grow up in as cozy a place as it can be. Having gone through childhood themselves, these adults know that children get lured to stay outside their home more often than not when they find nothing fun to do inside. Instead of staring at the boring walls for hours, the youngsters prefer to stay at their friend’s place until mom and dad come by to pick them up.

Although you don’t necessarily have to revamp your entire residence to make your children contented with it, you can redecorate their bedrooms. Here are some ideas that your kids might love.

  1. Let The Little Ones Set The Theme

From the start, you should ask your children if they want the room to have their favorite characters everywhere. Just hearing that from you can make their eyes sparkle with happiness, so the kids will ideally be more enthusiastic when it comes to giving you details about how their bedrooms are supposed to look like after the redecoration.

  1. Paint The Walls With Their Favorite Colors

Baby pink and power blue paints seem only acceptable for infants who cannot express their likes and dislikes yet. In case you already have kids past the age of two, you may get their opinion on the wall color(s) that they want. Once the children see the result of it, they may hardly come out of the bedroom.

  1. Make Room For The Toys

The little ones begin to feel a sense of ownership over their belongings. They tend to say, “This ship is mine” or “I own that Barbie doll.” To keep them from fighting over toys all the time, it is advisable to have a space for their prized possessions in every room.

  1. Ensure That All Furniture Are Within Their Reach

You should also remember that floor-to-ceiling shelves and cabinets are highly unreachable for young kids. That can keep them from growing some independence; worse, they will feel the need to call you if they can’t get stuff off the top layers. For the meantime, therefore, add furniture in the rooms that are within their eye level.

  1. Think Of Customizing The Bed

Considering your son is genuinely in love with trucks or jeeps, while your daughter wants to live in a castle, you may try to have their beds customized. Many woodworkers are craftier than ever now, in the sense that they can create bed frames that boast more than the four posts or curtains that were popular back then. They can do practically any design that you have in mind.

  1. Add Fixtures That Will Encourage Them To Become Organized

When redecorating a child’s bedroom, you also need to consider how the little ones can maintain orderliness in it. You may not have to worry about a thing if they’re already teens; young kids, however, necessitate a bit more push to clean after themselves. Nevertheless, the latter may get encouraged to organize better once you place a laundry bag, baskets for different toys, or shelves in the rooms and teach what to put where.

Final Thoughts

Decorating your children’s bedrooms does not require help from a professional interior designer. As long as you know what the kiddos like, you can never go wrong. After all, they will be the ones using the rooms, so they know better than anyone what they want to see in these parts of the house.

How To Make Your Home Look Less Messy Than It Truly Is

We all want our house to look clean, yet we also know that that is not a hundred percent achievable. If you have dogs or cats, they often shed hair on the floor, carpet or couches. In case your children still cannot organize their toys, you may find a truck or a doll in odd places.

Despite that, whoever said that it is impossible to make your home look less messy than it is in actuality?

Here are some tips on how you’ll be able to achieve that clean house vibe.

  1. Use Air Fresheners

We remember seeing a TV ad a few years back in which a company that sells air fresheners sprayed it in a very unsanitary public bathroom. The walls are grimy, the door for every cubicle is unhinged, and the toilets seem like they have not been rinsed for ages. Then, they made random people go in there to describe the smell, which turned out to be pleasant. It was only after that that the company revealed the actual state of the bathroom, but the reactions are not as bad as one may think since they can still smell the air freshener.

Although your house may not be as troublesome as that public bathroom mentioned above, what we’re trying to help you envision here is the idea that good odor can change someone’s perspective about a place instantly. You may have toys all over the floor; your dishes may still be on the sink. However, if you have an air freshener all over your home, the visitors won’t think much about the imperfections.

  1. Set Up Baskets With Lids Everywhere

Another trick that you might find helpful is placing large baskets with a cover on different points of the house. Say, put one beside the refrigerator, another one outside the bathroom, and then one more in the living room. These containers should not only be statement pieces but should also serve as bins for whatever clutter you may want to hide from your guests quickly.

Having baskets all over your residence is important, especially if you tend to strip off your clothes anywhere in the house and go straight to bed with no care in the world after work. It is also an effective way to teach children to clean up after themselves. Even though their organizational skills are unpolished still, they can at least take toys off the floor and into the basket.

  1. Keep Only The Necessary Kitchen Appliances On Display

When you have a home of your own, you undoubtedly want to buy every kind of appliance there may be at the store and display them. This way, when visitors come, you can wow them with the number of fancy fixtures you have.

Nevertheless, if we’re honest, you do not always need all the kitchen appliances on a daily basis. Though you cannot bake, for instance, the pastry mixer is still on display. Say, you can only fry eggs, yet various pots and pans are out to make guests think that you genuinely cook. You may not even drink coffee, but your coffeemaker is on the countertop.

Such items merely turn into clutter in your kitchen; that’s why it looks super messy. They seem out of place because you rarely or never use them. To make this area cleaner than usual, you will then have to stow away the unnecessary items to create more negative space in the room.
