Decorating rooms or houses with children in mind takes creativity. Furniture and decor need to be practical and sturdy to live up to wear and tear caused by children, but it also needs to be fun and comfortable to appeal to them. You also want to use elements that the child can grow in to – you don’t want to have to redecorate your house every year! Finding the medium between these can be tricky.
With a few pieces of modern furniture and decorating tips, you can create atmospheres that children will love while still being tasteful and modern. Check out these tips from sohoConcept about how to use modern furniture to decorate children’s rooms!
Modern Children’s Furniture and Decor
Decorating walls in a child’s bedroom or playroom is a great way to foster some creativity and create depth in the room. Using wallpaper or wall graphics can be easy to replace regularly as interests change and are a great way to avoid repainting a room regularly. Hanging string lights is great for children of any age, and can act as a nightlight for younger ones. Wall decorations and hangings help make a bedroom or playroom feel unique and are easy to customize to your child’s changing tastes!
Modern storage is key for any children’s room. Traditional storage works well, such as bookcases and sideboards like in sohoConcept’s Malta line. These can get a personal touch with unique colours or items placed on top.
Other unique storage options work great for children. Baskets, hanging baskets, and colourful shelving are both modern and fun for children. When it comes to storage for children, it needs to be appealing as an extra incentive to help them keep their areas clean! With modern storage options like these, you know your child’s bedroom or playroom will be different than any of their friends.
A Work Area
Important in any child’s room is a work area. While a mahogany desk might not be the best option for helping a child do their homework, there are many kid-friendly options to help them with this! Having a modern desk and comfortable chair is great for helping them with organization and time management skills early.
A desk can still be a fun place for children. A glass tabletop, similar to the Milano Extendable Table, or a white tabletop are popular in children’s rooms. Adding chalkboards, whiteboards, or bulletin boards around the desks can help foster creativity and help the work space double as a play area.
Choosing colours for modern furniture and decor for children is key for creating an overall atmosphere and environment for their rooms. Pastel colours are calming and can be great for bedrooms or areas where children will be doing homework. Using neutral colours on the walls with pops of colour in the furniture is great for a playroom. Comfortable modern chairs like the Washington 4 Star or Toronto Chair by sohoConcept come in bright colours that are fun, durable, and will give a pop of colour to your child’s playroom.
