How to Design a Child’s Room That Boosts Creativity and Inspires Learning

By Kravelv @kravelv

Your child’s room will be his or her first and only personal space for quite a few years. It’s important to create a space that will foster your child’s creativity and eagerness to learn. Every child has different requirements in these arenas, but there are a few surefire ways to help you craft a space that will promote your child’s educational wellbeing for years to come. The finer details will vary, but the basics stay the same.

Remove Clutter

Children tend to accumulate a lot of things, especially if they’re well loved during the holiday season and on their birthdays. Children frequently grow out of playthings and hobbies after short periods of time, and this leaves them with a surplus of belongings. Donate the things that lack sentimental value, and pack keepsakes up to put into storage. Your child is going to need space to learn and grow, and removing the objects that aren’t necessary will create that space.

Maximize Space

Children rarely get the master suite of the home. A child’s room will generally have limited floor space. That makes it all the more important to maximize the space you have to work with. Beds on elevated platforms will free up all the space beneath them, creating an ideal area to place a study desk or a reading nook. Opting for taller dressers and bookshelves instead of their wider counterparts will allow you to do more with the height of the room, keeping the floor open.

Choose the Right Theme

Depending on the age of your child, he or she has probably proposed some novel ideas for décor. A lot of children are excited by the process of a superhero or princess themed motif, but your child is soon to grow out of these interests. Choose an inspiring theme that won’t become irrelevant in a few years. It’s possible to theme a room around a deeper concept, like space exploration or travel. Maps and astrological charts will give your child’s environment a little more intellectual depth.

Provide Comfort

Children are notorious for having short attention spans. If they can’t get comfortable and settled in, it’s nearly certain that they’ll want to switch between tasks without ever devoting their full attention to anything. Make sure a study area is ergonomically designed. Provide reading chairs that are comfortable enough for a long exploration into the world of enriching fiction. It’s better to purchase stronger, durable, larger furniture that a child will grow into than it is to purchase smaller and less expensive pieces that they will quickly outgrow.

Don’t Forget About Play Space

Younger children are going to need room to put their toys. If you have plenty of educational, interactive, brain-building toys and games, you’re going to need to set up play stations somewhere. If you don’t have a separate play area in your home, these things will need to be placed in your child’s room. Setting up an activity table with shelf storage for each activity will allow your child to alternate between learning toys without having to find a place to set them all up. You’ll also be teaching your child to organize and clean up after himself or herself when you use a system that calls for one toy to be used at a time.

Perhaps the most important thing to consider is your child’s input. He or she might not always have the foresight to know what design elements will work best for the long haul, but you need to consider your child’s input. Your child needs to genuinely enjoy this space in order to be able to use it to the fullest.
