Our children are angels deep down and we want them to have everything that they want, but sometimes leaving a room choice up to them probably isn’t the best use of money since they probably can’t foresee the same things that we can. A sophisticated hardwood bedroom set may not be exactly what your 11-year-old girl wants when Dora The Explorer is available, but she will come to appreciate it later on when she grows out of Dora The Explorer. There are ways that you can avoid the unhappy fits without putting hundreds of dollars of choice in their hands. The 4 personal touches are:
Using the handles and little knick-knacks that their furniture has is exciting on a child’s level. Adding daisy flowers and pictures of their favorite cartoon characters are a great way to change it up and give them a sense of customization without giving them too much power. Check out some of our designs and see what your little one prefers. This is a little more fun for the family because it is something that can teach your child about how not everything should be taken the way it comes. It’s a great way to show how your child has control over their world.
Having a colorful ceiling fan is fun for your child because it is a dynamic part of their room and adds colorful finesse and a sense of “coolness” especially if their room has multiple colors going on. The best parts is that when your child outgrows the style of the ceiling fan, changing the blades is as easy as unscrewing a couple of screws. Easy projects make the best customizations for your family!
Beanbags are a heap of fun and give your child a unique sense of “Cool!” when they have playmates over for playtime. Beanbags are great because if you don’t like the design on them or if your little one outgrows the design, you can just buy a new skin to put the entire bag in to “grow up” their room a little more.
Paint and Wallpaper
Of course, the best way to make a huge impact on your child’s bedroom (and on them) is to surprise paint their room! Wouldn’t it be great to see the expression on their face when you change their room color to their favorite colors while they’re at school? It’s always great to play dumb and act like their room changed color on its own while they were away. It’s a fun way that mom and dad can enjoy an after noon together and an even more fun way to show your child how you listen to them and let them know that their opinion matters. Give your toddler a fun surprise this summer.
These are all great ideas of personal touches to bring into the lives of your children, but they can’t be done without your family working together and starting out by browsing our selection of furniture and getting a feel for what everybody likes. This summer, make a big change or prepare for a new one. The possibilities are only limited by you, so why not start now?
