Very often it is the design of the children’s room that becomes a stumbling block. The issue of repairs is resolved, a kitchen and sleeping headset was selected, and even the color of the wallpaper in the living room is not in doubt, but the issue of registration of the nursery remains open and causes violent disputes. It has long passed the time of light wallpaper, a traditional chest of drawers and shelves with toys. The modern interior must meet modern requirements.
5 principles of registration of a children’s room
Presentation of the children’s room
The requirements for the nursery can be formulated simply:
These principles are fundamental and are not subject to discussion.
The principle of environmental friendliness is manifested in the choice of materials. If furniture, then from a whole massif of a tree. If curtains, then from natural fabric. It’s even better to select a paint, without impurities of oil products that can be potentially dangerous for child health.
Beauty, that is, the design of the children’s room, is an important factor, because it is in this room that the child will spend most of the time. As you know, the surrounding space greatly affects the formation of good taste. If there are faceless tables and stools around, then in the future the child will organize just such an environment around him. And the quality of life greatly depends on this.
From the above, another principle stems smoothly – functionality. After all, for the child, the nursery is a bedroom, a living room, and a training corner. And for some, also a sports ground. So, the interior should fully satisfy all the needs of the baby.
The requirement of comfort is universal. But in relation to the children’s room, this means that the switches should be at the eye level of the child, the furniture should not be bulky, and all the boxes could be easily advanced. The presence of all kinds of “storage facilities” – shelves, chests of drawers and nightstands, where you can easily place toys, books, and clothes are also very important.
And if there are several children in the family, then you need to take into account the interests of everyone. For example, the arrangement of a children’s room for two girls will be very different from the design of a room for one boy.
And, of course, the safety of everything that surrounds the child is very important. This applies to all kinds of wires, glass products, heating devices. All this should be hidden or hidden in special boxes.
Design of a large children’s room and a room with a balcony
Children’s room with their own hands
Not everyone can afford to allocate for a children’s large room. But it happens the other way around: the apartment does not have enough small room, and the choice is between the pantry and the twenty -meter hall.
The option of the device for the nursery in the pantry disappears immediately, so consider the differences in the interiors of large and small rooms, as well as rooms with a balcony.
The modern design of the children’s room is good because any deviations from classic ideas about the interior are permissible in it. And if with a spacious room to make ideas quite simple, then a limited space requires thought out every detail.
Features of the organization of a small children’s room:
Combining several zones in one. An example of such a combination is a children’s corner in which a desk is located at the bottom, and in the upper one is a berth.
The presence of functional furniture. So, ordinary ottoman, in addition to its direct purpose, can play the role of a storage for toys. You can find a transformer furniture, which can perform several functions at once.
Visual expansion of space. This effect can be achieved using the correct use of mirrors. The best choice could be a wardrobe with mirror doors.
The design of a large children’s room also requires compliance with the nuances:
Correct light accents. In such a room, it is better to use several small light sources – sconces, floor lamps. One large lamp under the ceiling will make the room a faceless and “cold”, while as well allocated with the help of lamps of the zone will give a feeling of comfort.
Large windows. Too small window will visually make the room even wider.
Correct curtains. For large space, long curtains made of heavy materials are suitable, which will make the room more cozy.
Highlighting zones using catwalks. Various height drops are quite appropriate in a spacious room, while in a small they will be useless. The design of the room with a crib involves the presence of a small elevation, on which this very crib can be placed.
The design of a children’s room with a balcony is not as difficult to think over as it seems at first glance. In fact, the presence of a balcony gives advantages in the form of a clearly separated zone.
If you blame the balcony correctly and make it warm, then it can be used under the gaming zone. At the same time, windows leading to the balcony become an optional element, and the windowsill can be turned into a stylish rack. The balcony door can also be eliminated, and the threshold is designed in the form of a small ladder.
An interesting idea is to insert shelves into the window opening on which the child will place books or various little things.
Thus, in the room itself, it remains only to determine the zones for study and the berth. In addition, an additional space for a sports corner appears.
DIY children’s room – stages of work
If you firmly intend to arrange a children’s room with your own hands, then everything will work out. It is only necessary to observe the sequence of actions, which will help to clearly define priority tasks, clearly paint the purchase plan and not fall into a nervous state called “What to do?””.
So, the work plan for the arrangement of the nursery:
Ask the child. This stage is relevant if he already knows how to speak and knows exactly what he wants. Of course, there is no need to blindly follow the desires of the baby, because he simply does not realize many nuances. If the child has not yet learned to speak or at all in the project, then you can see on the Internet or in specialized catalogs options for designing a children’s room.
Divide the space into functional zones. It makes no sense to give any advice here, because each room is individual. But general zoning requirements exist.
So, the recreation area (berth) should not be located directly by the window. It is better to arrange it in some cozy corner.
Working area (a training place for older children or a small table for creativity for kids) let it sit at the window. In the daytime it will be quite light here.
Place for the gaming zone can be anywhere, usually on the floor.
The guests reception area (yes, the child also has guests!) can be combined with a recreation area. In this case, you can use a transformer bed, which easily turns into a sofa. Or to allocate a separate corner under this zone, arranging it with the corresponding furniture.
The choice of color scheme. It is important not to overdo it and not give in to the persuasion of the child. If he demands that everything be blue or pink, this is not at all a guide to action. You can distinguish in the interior a place where your favorite color of the child will prevail, and everything else can be arranged in calmer tones. The colors are acceptable any. The exception is only white (too flaunt), black (too depressive) and red (excessively aggressive) color. The walls in the children’s room are best done neutral. This will allow the child to show imagination, decorate them with their liking pictures or posters.
Preparation of a design project. If you are not a professional designer, then you do not need to try to create a design in a 3D visualizer. It is enough to sketch it on paper, noting the zones, the desired furniture and color. As you repair, you can add something or vice versa.
The embodiment of your ideas into life.
In general, making a good design for a nursery is not difficult. Just take into account all the details, and in the choice of color to trust the feelings.
