It’s Not Just A Room: Kids and Creativity

It’s Not Just A Room: Kids and Creativity

There is something so beautiful about a child’s imagination. Adults can learn a lot from their never-ending creativity. That being said, their bedroom should be a space where they can create and thrive freely. Sure, it may be messy from time to time, but sometimes that’s a good thing. Kids need to be stimulated both physically and mentally. Colors, textures, and sounds are all examples of what can be used to make a space worth imagining in.

I have always loved that kid’s rooms have themes. I think this is a great way to help them develop their personalities and give them a chance to explore that. On another hand, it is also important to create a space for your child that they can rely on. Their bedroom should not only act as a creative room but also as a safe place. We all need somewhere we can run to.

Sleep is usually the main intention of a bedroom, however, for kids it should also be a place to play. There are so many options to make your child’s room unique. From rock climbing walls to airplane beds, the sky is the limit. The best part is, there is no limit on the amount of color you use. The more the better! Secret, hidden spaces are also becoming a major trend. It takes adventure to another level and your child will never want to leave.

There are thousands of cute ways to tailor their space to their interests. If they like to read, create a reading nook for them to curl up in. To incorporate sports, have posters of their favorite players hanging on the walls. Does your child have a favorite movie or show? You can make their favorite characters come alive by using larger than life decorations.

Now don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you, parents! While encouraging a child’s imagination is a great thing, the creative process can also be very messy. Lucky for you, there are many ways to stay organized without sacrificing the overall feel of the room. Built-in storage units are a life-saver and you can still keep them colorful. Buy boxes that coordinate with the room’s color scheme but still keep everything hidden. Everything will still be accessible to your child but also easy to keep out of sight after a clean-up or two.

Your child’s room is a place where they can truly be themselves no matter what. It gives them a space to grow and become their own person. Don’t forget to keep them involved in the decorating process. They will really feel like it’s their own if you let them have some say. They’re only young once!
