Kids Room Update
Lately, we have been forced to rethink the spaces in our homes because of the increased time spent at home due to Covid. Our children's spaces needed to become even more functional than usual, for their recreational and educational needs. Now that the school year is ending however, perhaps it's time to finally organise and decorate for their next chapter.
Probably the most obvious and eye catching quick change you can make, is the addition of murals as statement walls. Kids love wallpaper, handpainted art or wall decals according to their interests. Keep it fun, but remember that kids rooms are still part of your overall house, so you don't want to overdo the clown or safari motifs. A little goes a long way!
Here are some smart solutions:
Multifunctional furniture is also a great way to maximize space, for sleepovers or playtime. Kids love to climb bunk and loft beds as part of their imagination at work, so it makes for a win-win. Some creative options additionally ensure that your child has the entire floor space underneath to play and work. Topping the sleeping area with a bed canopy can do wonders - and not only for girls. Creating a cosy reading nook with a simple curtain and lots of comfy pillows, will also entice the least avid reader.
Looking to introduce some adventure? Be inspired by this selection of dreamy swings chairs. Be it a romantic neutral version or a recreational station combined with a little gym, don’t forget to keep the fun factor by ensuring it’s actually usable and of course, always bear safety in mind.
Children's IKEA POANG
Looking for the easiest IKEA hack ever? Redesign an IKEA Poang chair by simply painting the frame and adding a new slipcover. The children's size Poang chair is definitely a wise choice for toddlers, not to mention that it’s half the price of the adult version. But if you have the space, a full sized Poang makes for a great heirloom that transitions from nursery to toddler, teen to adult. Simply switch out the slipcovers as needed to keep the chair and your room looking fresh. Be it a nursery with a rocking chair or the simplest armchair for teens, everybody loves a good Poang.
