How to make a kids room last into his teens
Interior design is like fashion, trends come and go…
When designing a space we like to use elements that will last. Especially when designing kids rooms. We are all for kids rooms being kids rooms and not too “grown up” but believe that any updates for the home are investments. The best kids rooms are the ones that can transition from toddler to teenager.
One strategy when designing the room is rather than using your child’s favorite cartoon or latest Fisher Price toy, create a neutral backdrop for the walls, you can always add more color on the bedding, art and accessories.
Storage is very important too. Kids have tons of toys and books. Take a look at this kids room we did.
We wanted the walls to fade away and we didn’t want to grow tired of the carpet so we found a soft, sedate wall color and transitional stripe carpet to create our neutral backdrop. As for long lasting storage, we designed a bookcase with doors (to hide the toys), and a built-in bench with storage space underneath and also created a desk space.
Here are some pictures of the room:
