Your little girls’ bedroom is a magical place for her. This is where she spends a lot of time, not only sleeping, but also playing. Decorating your girls’ bedroom is not that complicated at all. In fact, it could be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for the both of you.
Before you start shopping on bedroom sets and other furniture for your girls’ bedroom, you should keep in mind some helpful tips.
First, you should listen. Since it is your daughter’s room that you are decorating, you should ask about her ideas in decorating her room. Listen to what she wants, what her favorite things from television programs to toys are, even her favorite cartoon character. Ask her if she wants a theme or not, or would she like to use her favorite color as the base of the theme.
Second, think ahead. When decorating, you should think first before decorating the more permanent things. Your child’s like and dislikes change from time to time. So before you paint on the wall, consider whether she would still appreciate it months from now.
Just like an adult’s bedroom, a girls’ bedroom doesn’t only consist of a bed. She should also have her own furniture in her room. Sometimes, her room would even require more than yours.
Canopy beds are great for little girls. Most girls usually dream of being princess, and the canopy style is just perfect for this dream. It can be an elegant and beautiful retreat for her. If you have two girls, a bunk bed would be great for them if you have less space for accommodating two beds.
There are also playhouse beds available in the market. These are cute bunk like beds, only that the lower portion consists of a playhouse. Your girl would definitely love this, especially when engaging with pretend play.
She also gets to have her own armoires to put her stuff into. There are different types in the market and all of them have an elegant touch, just fit for your little princess. There are some that even have crystal chandeliers inside or installed lightings. The choices are definitely bountiful; just learn to choose the right one!
You can also put some chairs in her room. There are sofa sets for girls available, however, if you don’t have much space one chair would do. Some girls appeal to rocker chairs. You can also ask if she would rather have a beanbag or one of those inflatable plastic chairs.
You can also get a mini table and chair set for her, so that she can accommodate her visitors for her tea parties, whether it is friends, or her stuff toys. Your girl would probably have her other girl friends for sleepovers and play sessions, that’s why it would be nice to provide additional seating for them.
The lighting in her room is quite important too. Since most kids are afraid of the dark, having a cute night-light would be the right thing. You can also put ceiling fixtures, such as mini chandeliers, to add to that feminine touch.
The task of decorating your girls’ bedroom is not your sole responsibility. Remember that it is ‘her’ room that you are decorating, so it would be best if both of you do it. Make it a project that both of you can work on, to make the results even memorable and worth it!
