For a child, a bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It’s a spot to do schoolwork, play games, rough-house, read, daydream, visit with friends and stockpile toys. As you plan out your child’s bedroom, you’ll need a space that serves all those functions — and is comfortable and practical for several years to come. The ultimate experts on what kids like best are kids themselves, so get them involved in the design process by letting them help with selections. That being said, children’s preferences change often, so use accessories and colors that be easily replaced. Overall, whether you’re decorating a playroom, bedroom or nursery, be sure to think about fun, growth and practicality.
