Tips for Letting Your Child Decorate His Own Room

Last updated 4 years ago

When decorating or painting your child’s room, allowing him to have some input in the process will make the space feel like a personal retreat he can enjoy. Giving your child some freedom with the décor choices in his bedroom will encourage his personality to grow. Keep reading to discover some tips for letting your child decorate his own bedroom to ensure every family member is pleased with the result.

Let Him Choose Paint Color or Accents

One of the most prominent features of your child’s room is its paint color. Allow your child to choose a few sample colors he’d like to try. If you’ve got a very specific color palette in mind, bring a few samples home from the store and let your child choose from among them. If you aren’t comfortable letting your child choose the paint color for his walls, let him choose an accent color for trim, furniture, or accessories that will complement the walls instead. Accents and accessories can be more easily changed than wall color, and the option to make this choice for himself will help your child feel like he had significant input on the design of his room.

Designate a Parent Free Area

Take one corner or area of your child’s room and designate it his “Parent Free Area.” Allow your child to decorate this part of his room however he likes. Consider hanging a chalkboard, magnetic board, or bulletin board in this area so your child can tack up photos, drawings, or posters that have special meaning for him. If your child is very young and you are concerned with his decorating style, you can impose just a few rules to ensure his Parent Free Area doesn’t clash with the rest of his room.
