Due to the great interest of our clients about children’s rooms, we decided to write several articles on this topic. This is the first of them. It will summarize the basic techniques and sequence of designing a children’s corner. In the following articles we will talk in more detail about specific details and give more examples. The team of Pentachron EOOD hopes that the information will be useful for you.

Building the interior of the children’s room is a very difficult task and is associated with knowing the desires of children and their needs. The interior of such a room can positively affect the development of imagination and creativity of the child. A children’s room should provide the necessary space where they can be undisturbed, rest, play, study, read, etc. There are several stages in the design of a children’s room – space planning, furnishing, decoration and embodiment of various hobbies and activities.

We will start first with a few steps about space planning, which is the most important stage. It must take into account the age of the child and his various needs. The first task is to find the right room, taking into account various factors – size, natural light, exposure, folds. Rooms for a baby, ten-year-old kid or teenager are structured differently. For this, such a room is chosen that can be modified over time by changing the desired and needs of the child. The second important step in planning is the functional solution. I will explain these issues in detail in the next blog post.

Once you have planned the space comes the stage of furnishing. When choosing furniture for the children’s room we must take them into account with the interior of the rest of the house, not with individual aesthetic value. When buying furniture for a child’s room, you should know that they wear out and age the fastest.

It is very important for a child to have toys, and in order not to have a mess that parents are terrified of, it is necessary to provide as much storage furniture as possible. If the child’s belongings have nowhere to gather, they slide around the house, and this is already a problem for all family members. In the following blog articles, we will give some tips for organizing the furniture so as to reduce clutter, provide a place for learning, for solitude for teenagers and play for children. In children’s rooms are often used methods to save space through multifunctional furniture with mechanisms.

The third but not the most important stage is decorating the room. This is the stage that provides comfort, coziness and turns the room into a place that children love. Here are a few basic steps to follow – selection of colors and materials (for walls, floor and furniture), selection of decorative elements – (lighting, textiles, applications, etc.). In children’s rooms it is nice to choose bright colors: green, pink, blue, yellow, purple and more. For the walls as well as on the market there is a large selection of materials. When decorating the walls are often used wallpaper, latex, photo wallpaper, stickers, drawings and more. The floors should be warm and it is good to provide carpet, carpet, parquet, etc. Each of these materials has its advantages and disadvantages. Textile elements also affect the overall look of the room. There are different types of textiles in different thicknesses, colors and densities designed for every taste. The most practical fabrics should be selected – if possible to wash and not fade in washing and light. Curtains should be selected so that they let in enough light and shade enough, it depends on the exposure of the room.
Last but not least is the adaptation of the space in unison with the hobbies and activities of the child – drawing, music, sports, etc. It is good to set up corners for this, if there is no space in the room itself, then at least in the apartment.
