Girls tend to go through more changes than boys at a younger age and tend to grow up quite quickly so you want to create a space that will grow with them. Here are a few tips I found came in handy with my little ones.
Theming a room around your child’s passion can be fun, but as her interests change -Pepper Pig or The Wiggles is likely to be relatively short-lived. Consider a framed poster, duvet cover or cushion that can be easily changed once her tastes evolve. Girl’s rooms can really look the part with simple white walls and lots of frames, it makes what is in the frame a treasure instead of a picture.
As most rooms the bed will be the centrepiece for many years to come in a girls room so make sure it is a sturdy frame in a classic style. If the bed has plenty of room underneath it it ay pay to invest in a trundle bed that slides underneath because you can count on many sleepovers in the future. A bedside table with storage and a small table and chairs can make sure room a special quite place for her to play.
Girls love to display their things, floor to ceiling shelving can be perfect for this. Collections of even the simplest things, such as seashells or an assortment of twinkly buttons, can be surprisingly effective displayed in this space. The use of pretty baskets or bowls for those little bits such as hair clips and doll’s accessories can keep everything tucked away too.
Remember that decorative touches don’t need to be fancy or expensive, things like painted wooden wall motifs, a fabric-covered bed head or pretty knobs on a chest of drawers are easy to find or achieve yourself. A mosquito netting over the bed can make her feel like a princess and they are inexpensive from homeward store like Bunnings.
