The kid’s room is not all about bed and storage. Just like your room shows what you are, your kid’s room should be able to define them and motivate them at every stage of their life. A strictly thematic room is a Big NO! Just give your kids a say in the theme and take it in your hands from thereon. You do not have to take a theme too seriously to design the whole room a new world to them.
It is how you will deal with the kids at different ages and correctly design your kid’s room.
For kids aged between 2-7
This stage calls for just the involvement of the kids in the process of designing their room.
Kids at this age will not have the sense of the individual part of their room or interests, for that matter. So, the wisest decision is to ask them to make them feel included and take it from thereon. At this stage of their life, you must make them understand how to make the bigger decisions in life. So, do not ask them too many questions, they will not have the answer to all, take an idea of there likes and dislikes to take the reigns of designing in your hands.
For kids aged between 8-11
Kids are at a creative stage, and their minds will have amazing ideas. Empower your kids at these ages.
For the kids, to know who they are designing, their room can be the first step and the most critical part of the process. Give them a fair share of say as to how they want their room to be designed in the first place. Take their creative outlet and feed your system a proper way of designing your adolescents’ room. In this situation, too, you will have to find a way to implement your kid’s likes and dislikes in a useful form in the room.
For kids aged between 12-17
It is time you can let go and give full reins to the kids. It is time for them to learn specialized skills and incorporate discipline in their life.
The teenage kids need all the free reins you can allow them to design their room. The room of teenage is a hideout and solace from you and the outer world. But, they can also turn the room in a disaster zone. So, start by giving them a budget and ask them to do whatever they want to do with the room, that can help them get through at least the next 5 years or so. They cannot ask for things and change their mind over and over again.
With such liberties, your kid can learn self-regulation skills, budget-driven work, and learn how to create a haven for themselves. They need to learn that the design is not irreversible and bear the consequences of their choices.
