The next bedroom we’re going to focus on is a toddler’s bedroom, so if you have a toddler, grandchild, niece, nephew or simply your friend’s children staying we hope you’ll pick up some quick and easy tips for decorating a room for the toddler in your life!
Ready made curtains for toddlers’ bedrooms are a great idea. They are a better selection for the toddler’s bedroom than custom made curtains because, well, let’s face it: your toddlers aren’t going to appreciate the curtains in their room as much as you are! Furthermore, they are more likely to stain or damage the curtains than other members of the family, so you don’t want to lay out the money for made to measure when ready made cost less and will do just fine!
You also need to consider that ready made curtains are, well, ‘ready’- you don’t have to wait for them to be made. Your toddler will be outgrowing his/her bedroom in just a few years. So this type of window dressing make more practical and economical sense all round.
When you look for curtains for your toddlers’ rooms, you’ll find that you have a wide selection to choose from. Take you time and think about how to get the best lighting in the bedroom. If your toddler has a favourite animal or favourite colour you can look for curtains that have that animal imprinted on them or choose that colour. If their favourite colour is a dark one it’s probably best to not worry too much about that and try and tempt them with a lighter colour that allows more light to come through. On the other hand, if your toddler’s bedroom receives a lot of artificial light pollution from outside at night, childrens curtains with blackout lining could be a better idea to help him/her sleep.
A toddler’s bed should first and foremost be safe, but it can also be fun. You can find toddler beds in the shapes of animals or vehicles. That’s the kind of bedroom décor that a toddler appreciates. But once again, you don’t want to spend too much money on it because the toddler will be outgrowing the bed in the near future. If you’re handy you can make your toddler’s bed yourself and then sell it or give it away once the child is too big for it.
Besides being well-lit a toddler’s bedroom needs to be comfy and safe. Toddlers tend to fall or run around and jump a lot, so having their bedrooms carpeted is a good idea. This will also help to keep them warm and put padding beneath their feet when they’re walking around under their knees when they’re playing, if you have rugs it’s a good idea to anti slip matting underneath to help prevent slips and tripping.
A wooden toy chest is a nice furnishing to add to a toddler’s room, and it helps to get him/her in the habit of putting things away when he/she’s finished playing with them. Plush dolls and stuffed animals make for great toddler bedroom décor too. Bean bag chairs are another classic touch: fun, soft, safe, hard to break, and cheap.
