A child's room needs to 'grow' them and reflect their changing interests

A child's room can use different colors at every stage of their growth.

Homeowners are frequently advised to personalize their home décor to reflect their interests, and the same can be said about children's rooms - with one difference.

"The best thing about decorating children's rooms is that there are no rules or limitations," states Nesting.com. "Unlike decorating in the rest of the home, you can really let your imagination take over."

A kid's room also needs to "grow" along with them. Furniture can be painted in different colors at various stages of their growth to fit the wall decorations they desire. If the child is old enough, he or she may be able to contribute the art work themselves.

Children's magazines provide plenty of nature and animal photos, often in vibrant colors. Allow children to pick their favorites and help them create a theme-based collage.

According to the website, lighting is important in a child's room, particularly if it doubles as the play area. Both overhead and task lighting is needed, and the right window treatment will allow as much natural light as possible to stream into the room. Fabric roller shades are easy for a child to handle, control lighting well and provide privacy at night. They can be outfitted in different colors and designs to suit the décor.
