Decorating a toddler's bedroom can be challenging. Toddlers are easily scared or delighted, and they like to get into everything. Knowing some decorating ideas for toddler bedrooms can help you design a space that will be fun and safe for your little one. Take this quiz and see what you know about decorating toddler bedrooms.
Most toddlers are not able to appreciate complicated visuals. Wait till your child is older to paint the room with an elaborate wall mural.
You may want to use posters or other low-cost temporary décor items. As children age, tastes may change so save the more permanent wall paintings for an older child.
You may hire a service to childproof your home or research for yourself about the necessary safety precautions.
To discover where the dangers lurk, you may want to put yourself at your child's level.
Use an antiscald device on water faucets and nonslip decals in the tub or shower. Always store medication and other unsafe materials far from your child's reach.
Most toddlers are not able to distinguish between imaginary and real concepts. Keep the potentially scary themes for when children are older.
Adult-sized furniture is fine, but why not add some toddler sized chairs and tables? You may find these toddler sized items in the children's departments of most retail stores and specialty furniture stores.
You can mix most any prints. Bring the prints together by using a compatible color scheme.
Use Velcro hook and loop fasteners to change walls into play spaces. A great idea is to create a race track on the wall and position the cars with Velcro. Other good wall games are checkers and tic-tak-toe.
A valance is a decorative heading used to cover the hardware of a window treatment. It usually covers only the top portion of the window.
Outdoor furniture stores sell many items that would be suitable for a child's room. A pink-painted Adirondack chair may be just right for your Goldilocks.
When babies become mobile and "toddle" they have passed into the toddler stage.
Toddlers are not yet aware of danger.
When you feel happy, you communicate that happiness to your child. Since you will be spending lots of time in your child's room, decorate the room to make yourself happy, too.
The suggestion of a theme may have longer lasting appeal. Rather than a Goldilocks theme, try a forest theme and add Goldilocks accents.
Using color and pattern as a theme goes with any favorite toy of the moment.
Children can be in danger at any time. Check furniture for hard or sharp edges.
A safety gate can be installed in the doorway of your child's room. Your child will be able to see and hear what is happening outside the room and you will know where your child is playing.
If you have the space and budget, the sky is the limit. Include some storage areas inside the castle so the kingdom stays neat and tidy.
Daybeds double as seating and come in decorative frames.
