If you are planning to refashion your home and adding a utilitarian, beautiful looking room for your children, here are some tips for you. Children at a growing stage need a good environment, where they can learn how to organise their things efficiently. Parents who insist on the child having his/her own space, must also keep in mind that their space is kept neat and arranged and that it encourages a healthy play, study and sleep cycle.
Kids’ room design for small homes
If you are not able to designate a full room, you can still utilise a corner for your child. If you prefer a simplistic, yet, utilitarian design idea, check out the picture below. Even if you are designating a corner, make sure it is in a room or an area with ample natural light. A well-lit room will always be a positive space for a child’s bright and curious mind.

Do not fill up the room with non-essentials. Keep only those things that are to be used on a daily basis. Children tend to clutter the space and this can be very distracting and tasking, for anyone who cleans up the room. A simple, study-centric and congestion-free zone should work.

Space should also be dedicated to keep the child’s belongings. Ensure that these things are within reach, where the children themselves can take out or put back their belongings.

Ensure that if you have small children, their room remains a safe zone for them. For small children, you may not want to give them shelves and racks that are out of their reach.

What should I take care of, when I design my child's room?
Ensure that it is age-specific. Rooms for small kids should have everything within their reach or out of their reach altogether (in case of hazardous objects). The rooms should have ample natural light and be designed in a way that ensures good ventilation, to encourage a healthy mind and body.
Are light colours good for a child's room?
The colours that you choose for your child’s room, totally depends on you. Lighter colours make rooms look spacious and can be a good choice. Green colour also helps with concentration.
