Combining style with function is a crucial aspect of any remodeling project. When it comes to a kid’s room, the stakes are even higher. Not only does the décor need to be age-appropriate, but every square centimetre of the space needs to be planned in terms of storage, maintenance needs, functionality, and durability. A room must accommodate multiple activities: a play zone, a study section, and a rest area. Finally, to avoid having to remodel the space every two years, you want to make sure you “age-proof” the room. So, before you get started, check out this list of some of the pitfalls to avoid when remodeling your kid’s room. This will help you save money, time, and, let’s be honest, a bit of sanity. We all know how stressful remodeling projects can be!
Shying away from bright colours
Neutral pallets of grey, white, and beige may be a tempting choice for a kid’s room. After all, “they go with everything!” While painting a room in calm colours is a surefire way to create a timeless décor, it is also an unimaginative solution for a youngster. This space should breed creativity, imagination, and positive associations. While we don’t suggest you paint the entire room in a bright red colour, adding a pop of colour through an accent wall, curtains, bright picture frames, or wallpaper will add energy and warmth to a room.
