Mistake # 1: Choosing a Room Setup That's Not Great for Kids

How old is your child? What are the functions of his sleeping area? Does he work there, play it? Is the room shared between several toddlers? All these criteria are to be taken into account when planning your child's sleeping area, otherwise he or she will not feel well. In any case, "it is important to delimit the different areas in the children's room so that the sleeping area is clearly distinguishable from the space dedicated to games, "advises interior decorator Coralie Vasseur.

Mistake # 2: Not Considering the Evolution of Children

When decorating and decorating the children's room, we often keep in mind their current age. But children grow up fast, their tastes change and their needs also. Take this into account from the beginning, at the risk of having to change everything from one year to the next. Avoid, for example, to cover their room with too childish patterns or to succumb too much to their ephemeral whims. Personalize their sleeping area, but without opting for permanent solutions. "The tastes of children are fast, it is better to opt for neutral for the main parts, such as walls, floor and furniture, and to personalize the room via accessories, cushions or bed linen", says Coralie Vasseur. Think, among other things, easily removable stickers, frames that can easily be changed illustration or changing bed that will accompany your child over several years.

Mistake # 3: opt for a cliché in pink or blue

Pink for girls and blue for boys ... color code a sexist strand is outdated: "A girl can very well like blue and a little boy the pink," confirms the interior designer. Why not do not let your children choose the color What do they prefer to dress the walls of their room and the furniture that compose it? Green, yellow, white, orange, purple ... Choices are available to you, and especially to them. Coralie Vasseur however, advise against overly aggressive tones : "The room is above all a place of rest and serenity, the child must not be excited or disturbed by too bright colors at bedtime".

Mistake # 4: forget the storage space in the children's room

It is not because your children are reluctant to tidy up their room that you have to ignore storage when planning their sleeping area. If closets and shelves are missing, the toys, clothes, books and other trinkets of your toddlers will inevitably drag on. Multiply storage solutions to optimize your baby's room, and prefer playful and adapted elements, such as chests or open shelves. Better still, as interior designer Coralie Vasseur likes to do it, invest in a multifunction bed with drawers. The built-in storage compartments occupy the same volume as the bed, which frees up a considerable amount of space in the room and leaves the field free for the play area.

Mistake # 5: Do not take into account the tastes of children

To opt for a style too adult or impersonal in the children's room is a big mistake! This is their intimate space, they play, grow, do their homework and flourish there. Coralie Vasseur is of the same opinion: "It is interesting to have the opinion of the children and to involve them in their universe.They have their say ... to the extent of the reasonable". It is therefore essential that they let their personality and imagination express themselves. They risk not to recognize themselves in a decoration mature and neutral to the extreme, and not to feel "home" in their own space. Without letting them decide on everythingAsk them about their favorite colors or the style they like and include them in major decisions. It's their room, after all.

Error # 6: placing furniture or decor too high

It would be a shame if your children do not take full advantage of the furniture or decoration of their own room because they have been placed in height, out of their reach. Make sure you have the decorative accessories, toys, and storage space that's right for them so that they can enjoy them fully, without frustration, and independently.

Mistake # 7: Tackling security issues

Even if your child is no longer a baby, it should not be forget about his safetyespecially in the room where he is often alone and unattended. "You have to forbid angular furniture at head height to prevent the child from bumping, hard floors or glass furniture that can break in shine," says Coralie Vasseur. Opt instead for soft floors and furniture with rounded corners. Also remember not to place heavy objects high to prevent them from spilling on your toddlers, use catch covers and adhesive to secure the carpets to the floor.
