Making repairs in the nursery, we want to achieve perfection in everything. Good design is a combination of beauty, comfort, practicality, and functionality. If at least one of these components you do not take into account when repairing, the updated interior will lose its advantages. Today we will talk about the most common mistakes that are often made in the design of a children’s room.
Every caring parent wants their baby’s room to be the best room, trying to push into it everything that every parent dreamed of as a child, including space, fairies, and cars on the wall. But you need to think about it, repair in the nursery is a serious matter, and to make it as comfortable as possible for the child, you need to think through the stages of repair. Otherwise, something that looks like a “baby drawing” will come out of the room. Therefore, when making a room, you need to follow a number of rules to avoid mistakes.
The most common mistakes in the arrangement of a children’s room
ERROR 1. SMALL SPACE
It is not necessary to allocate the smallest room for children, since a small owner should have a whole world in one room, including several zones for which space is needed.
MISTAKE 2. PARENTAL DREAMS
The room should not correspond to the dreams of parents, as the child has their own tastes and interests.
ERROR 3. PLOTTING
You do not need to design a room in a certain story style, such an interior will quickly get tired of both the child and parents.
MISTAKE 4. the “GROW-up” interior
IS Not a very good option for arranging a room for a three-year-old child, as for a preschooler. The child doesn’t need a computer, a globe, or a library yet.
ERROR 5. FLIGHT OF COLORS
Too much variety of colors in the interior of the children’s room will create a “vinaigrette” effect. It will be difficult for a child to concentrate in such an atmosphere. It is better to stop at light colors and dilute with a few bright colors.
ERROR 6. SLEEPING PLACE
You do not need to equip the sleeping area under the window, as the window is a source of drafts. In addition, this area is preferable for the work area, since it is the most illuminated.
ERROR 7. CLUTTER
When filling the room space, you do not need to follow the principle of “just a little bit”, only the things necessary for a comfortable life of the child should be located in the room. Basically, it is a bed, a locker for clothes, a rack or container for toys, a table, and a chair. It is unlikely that the child will need bulky sets of upholstered furniture from a sofa and armchairs or a wardrobe under the ceiling.
ERROR 8. INSUFFICIENT LIGHTING
Lighting in the children’s room should be plentiful as if there is a lack of light, the baby’s vision may deteriorate. Wall lamps should be added to the ceiling chandelier.
MISTAKE 9. FINISHING MATERIALS AND FURNITURE ARE TOO EXPENSIVE
Do not buy expensive Wallpaper and furniture in the children’s room. The reason is not that you need to save money on children, but that comfort is important for a child, and all these expensive accessories are only for adults. So let the Wallpaper and furniture will not be expensive, and they will not be sorry to spoil. Too cheap furniture and materials are also not good, they are of lower quality and can harm the baby’s health. Therefore, you need to be extremely careful when buying.
ERROR 10. CARPET
Yes, it is soft, warm, covers the entire floor, and looks aesthetically pleasing, but it has many disadvantages. For example, it is difficult to wash. Children are still a little “clumsy” creatures, can spill paint, can draw on the floor, and will also cope with their needs past the pot. All this is extremely difficult to clean up. In addition, carpet is a dust collector. Dust will accumulate in hard-to-reach places, which can lead to problems with the child’s breathing apparatus. It is better to lay linoleum, it is convenient to wash and a small coverlet in the play area.
Interior errors can be listed forever, the article only tells about the main ones. Not all parents follow fashion, not everyone has a taste, not everyone can properly equip a children’s room. What should I do in this case? First, before you make repairs in the room, you need to make a clear plan, based either on your knowledge or information from the literature or look at the Internet. Secondly, the simplest, but more expensive option is to seek help from high — quality specialists who work in this field.
Summing up, we can come to the conclusion that the arrangement of a children’s room is not just pasted Wallpaper and put a bed, but a very serious matter that requires planning, attention and responsibility, because how the interior is planned depends not only on the mood of the child, but also on his desire to develop and, of course, his health.
