When the time comes to decorate a child's room, the fear of being wrong you begin to take possession of us and we had very clear ideas before, now it seems to fade. I will choose good colors will be appropriate, what kind of furniture to choose, etc.

If you accept us a few tips, you say the first thing to consider is make it a practice room, but not practical for us, but for your little one. The room must be in keeping with the age of your child, it will be the one who use it every day. So the first premise should be a room that It perfectly suits your child.

On the other hand, it is time to teach our children standards of living as it is, pick up your toys when finished playing or save your pajamas on a given site. These functions are very important for the proper development of our child, the problem comes when the small have no way to reach those drawers.

Important, therefore, that both the drawers and the bed should be at its height so that these activities will prove easy and comfortable.

Before give you ideas, or see what trends have when choosing colors for our children's room, we have to tell you about how to choose the perfect color for a room that ultimately It will be the gaming space and study of children.

Not too complicated choosing the right colors, when we have to paint or decorate a child's room, if we consider these factors we will now summarize.

Natural light in a child's bedroom

The little natural light is really a problem when decorating any room, but much more when it comes to a child's room, for it will be very important to choose the right colors not only for the walls but for furniture or textiles. 

The Light colors They are traditionally expand the space visually, the reason is that light colors do not absorb light, but the reflectan so any light incident on a clear wall, almost double its luminosity.

White roofs They give greater sense of height, then a children's room painted white or a light color, it will be a success if it does not have much natural light. As soon as to furniture, also it is smart to opt for light colors, pastel colors or wood color. The intense color you can put decorative objects such as pillows or rugs.

The essence of any child's bedroom is that you may have natural light as possible. This not only save energy, but we'll get to the bedroom is a place that invites you to spend time inside. A site that children do not want to leave.

If to this we add natural light choosing neutral colors or white, we'll see how everything looks much brighter and thus we can have a bedroom that also seem more spacious.

If you have a large bedroom can &8220; risking&8221; but ultimately more color choice should take into account this point.


Furniture that will be part of a child's bedroom must pass quality standards regarding strength and durability. We all know that children do not stop, get up on the bed, pull the drawers, etc. Furniture therefore must be easy to clean and put up as many thumps without deterioration.

Furniture of a child's bedroom usually they consist of a bed, a wardrobe, a table and little else, but these can be all kinds of colors (as discussed below) and not only that, even have specific forms such as a bed that mimics a car or a boat.
