How to Decorate a Child’s Bedroom

Decorating a room can be fun and rewarding.  However, it can also be tricky, especially if you’re doing the decorating for probably the harshest judges there are: your kids!  Because of that, we’ve put together this little guide on the best ways to go about decorating the perfect room for your little ones.

Keep the organisation at their level. 

Teaching your children to keep things tidy is the aim of almost any parent, which is why it’s important that you arrange storage in such as way that they’re able to easily reach it.  Closet storage, racks and benches will all get far more use if they’re at the child’s height!

Decorate the walls. 

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from decorating, it’s this: kids don’t want plain, elegant walls.  Fortunately, there are a variety of ways in which you can keep the walls interesting without making permanent marks.  Removable transfers are ideal, offering an affordable and versatile way to brighten things up.  What’s more, they can be easily removed if your little one gets bored of them six months later!

Give them a hobby space.  

Whatever hobbies your kids do to pass the time, you should allow for some space in their room to accommodate it.  If they like writing or drawing, then install a small desk for them to use.  If they’re sporty, then make room for their boots, kit, etc.  If they’re a musician, consider some wall hangers for their gear.  (Unless they’re a drummer, in which case – soundproof the place!).

Get them involved. 

we’re not suggesting that you get your six year old involved in the intricate details of pebble-dashing, their room should reflect their own personality, and the best way to achieve this is to make sure that they make some decisions.  The best way to do this is to allow them to choose the aspects of the room that are easily changeable, such as the sheets and the curtains.

Make room for your own storage!  

Whilst child-high storage should be employed as noted above, it’s also important to ensure that you put in some extra storage to allow for all the other things that kids have – after all, young ones do tend to rack up the possessions.  Ensure there’s more than enough storage space to allow you to tidy up all the things not being used.

Why You Need Home Interior Lighting Design?

Lighting is the most effective creator of ambience in the interior. Since lighting was introduced into homes, it has played the most important role in our daily life.

Lighting has become an integral part of interior design. It enriches our spaces and affects our visual and psychological experience-even our working efficiency.

Moreover, lighting can change our perception of a space. Appropriate lighting design can personalize your space and establish a charm of your own. The beauty of light is that it doesn't destroy material, but reveals it.

Architecture lighting

Architecture lighting is about understanding what the building is and what it should be. It is about understanding the client's expectations while respecting numerous constraints inherent in the site, the norms and technical difficulties but also in the necessity of integrating lighting into the built environment and its networks by making disappear the details and also by providing sustainable lighting solutions in the frame of environmental challenges and ecological concerns.

That work of technical mastery involves different aspects according to program and scales:

  •     lighting up a contemporary architecture or an ancient building while showing the great essence of the monument
  •     adjusting very precisely a museum lighting
  •     revealing all the fleeting singularity of an event, giving to offices the comfort people need to work
  •     enhancing conviviality in a space of meeting and exchange
  •     improving the urbanity of a public space
  •     qualifying the atmosphere of a garden or even allowing several degrees of comprehension of a night landscape.

A good home interior lighting design would make us feel relaxed in an airy mood. At present, multisource lighting is the most popular way of lighting design in interiors.

It refers to the adoption of a multiple of lighting sources at the same time, such as chandeliers, table lamps, floor lamps and wall lamps.

The various and flexible combinations would greatly enrich the functions as well as significance of interior lighting.

The basic function of lighting is illumination, which should never be neglected in whatever circumstances.

In modern interior design, lighting goes beyond illumination to play the role of enriching a space psychologically.

    Successful home interior lighting design would characterize a space with distinctive features.

Homes are where the most private events occur. Therefore, home interior design directly influences the quality of our life and consequently we have a higher and stricter demand for it, which becomes challenging for designers.

With the fast pace of modern life, we yearn for a space where we could release pressures and relax both the body and mind. Such places should be quiet and romantic.

With the changing of our aesthetic perception, we are no longer satisfied with pictures, portraits, or other tangible objects hung on walls all around.

What we seek for now is an effect that could appear when we need it in a certain mood, and when we don't need it, it disappears immediately.

home interior lighting design could help achieve it with light and shadow. The projection and reflection of light and shadow could create an illusionary interior that is full of imagination. Light and shadow exist in interiors with certain colours.

Different colour temperatures would create different atmospheres. Moreover, with continuous development of modern technologies, we are able to adjust the intensity, colour and colour temperature of lighting according to our moods.
