Get creative in your kids corner

December 2016

When it comes to giving your children’s room a new lease of life, you can really use your imagination to create a space that will hopefully fire up theirs.

Start with a strong colour palette. Young children respond instinctively to primary colours, but neons, pastels or even white will work equally well, so long as there is lots of texture and things to play with!

When you’re on the lookout for furniture, the first place to start is a good robust bed. Today’s children’s beds are knockout in the style stakes.  Encourage their imagination with a fun, but practical, take on the traditional bedframe.

Savvy storage is also key. For instance, a toy box may be an absolute necessity when they’re tiny, but can usefully be re-purposed as a blanket chest or shoe store as they get older. A dressing table and stool may do double-duty as a quiet place to complete homework, and bookshelves are also ideal for toy storage – make sure there’s at least some space on the floor!

And there’s plenty of room for fun when it comes to accessories.  Mix lovely lighting with cosy cushions, quirky wall art, books and, most importantly, toys, to bring bags of personality and character to the space.
