Tips to create vibrant room for kids by Ikea
IKEA shares tips to create vibrant kids’ rooms that grow with them & encourages creativity
IKEA, the region’s favorite Swedish home-furnishing retailer, shares tips on creating a bright playful bedroom that can easily evolve with your child’s growth while inspiring their creativity. Whether it is furniture, textiles or lighting, many of IKEA’s ideas and products are timeless and can be applied in several different ways to suit the needs at different ages.
As a start, think about playful lighting. In addition to brightness and warmth, the way the light is encased can set a variety of playful tones. For example, a theme that children love is the circus. Imagine your child having their own shining circus tent at home. With the new TROLLBO pendant lamp, that’s inspired by a circus tent, with a flag at the top in the form of cord decorations, the joy of the Big Top comes home. In addition to being playful, this lamp shade is made of plastic from recycled PET-bottles. So, the fun is shared while contributing to sustainability for only AED 95.
The next item of focus is a warm welcoming bed to get children excited for bedtime stories and for the wonderful dreams throughout the night. A bed can be a stylish centerpiece in the bedroom that grows as your child grows and with different sets of bedding and sheets, color and patterns, the original bedframe evolves and is restyled. The timeless, traditional style of MINNEN extendable bed, priced at AED 395, is now available in dark yellow that’s fun to coordinate different styles with. But most importantly, the bed grows along with your child creating a long-lasting sleeping haven.
Whether your child is a girl or a boy, blue and white are great colors to decorate a room with. Known to have a soothing effect, the different shades of the blue and white matched with complementing patterns and motifs can create a vibrant space while maintaining its comforting appeal. You can find dreamy shades of white and blue textiles, whether in strong stripes or whimsical florals from the SÅNGLÄRKA collection including quilt covers, curtains, and cushions that are made with 100% sustainably sourced cotton.
Other tips include the use of pictures on blank walls as an easy way to create lively surroundings and to inject a burst of happy energy into a room. They are easy to change and update as children grow and as their tastes change.
IKEA also encourages all parents to consider the quality and safety standards when recreating their kids’ rooms such as avoiding products with sharp edges, small parts, accessible light sources or power sources that could pose a danger. Installing products that are high quality can be maintained easily and will have longer cycles so that the bedtime experience is extended as the child grows.
