It is not enough to create a functional space for your children; it also has to be a fun and enjoyable environment where they feel safe and can be themselves. Kids that have fun furnishings and decorating materials will not mind spending time in their multipurpose room. They will love using it as a play area, make it into an entertainment hub when their friends come over, or find it a great and functional computer and study hall. It will be their private sanctuary, where they can be creative and use their imagination without bothering other household members.
Older kids today are more style conscious then ever and it may be a good idea to take them along when picking out their furniture and decoration pieces. They want their rooms to have character, even if that means using gutsy, bold colors and odd shaped furnishings, statements parents do not have to deal with when their children are still little and less independent.
For the smaller kids, toys may be more important than the dresser they are stored in at night. Toys are vital tools that help foster the mental, physical, emotional and social development of children and should be carefully chosen. A stuffed teddy bear can be comforting but, at one time or another, also books, puzzles and other educational playthings should be incorporated into the child’s environment. Remember, only a well-balanced room will make your child feel comfortable during the day and help it sleep well at night!
