Cool, Versatile Kids’ Rooms That Get Better With Age | JC Licht

With the kids are back in school, weekends are a great time to include them in a fun design project you’ll both benefit from, such as redecorating their bedrooms. Working together, you can create a lasting memory and a room they’re proud enough to keep clean and tidy.

Since young children seem to grow faster than the speed of light, it’s important to provide a space that is easily adaptable through the various stages of growing up. Sharon Grech, Color & Design Expert at Benjamin Moore®, offers tips on how to achieve this.

Invest in pieces that last.

Consider spending more of your budget dollars on furniture pieces that will last, such as dressers and other storage solutions. Choose neutral tones for these items so they will coordinate with a variety of styles and colors. To keep costs down, concentrate on reflecting your kids’ changing personalities through more cost-effective décor elements, such as paint color, window treatments and accessories.

Let them have fun without overdoing it.

Your five-year-old has a passion for princesses now, but might not appreciate a glittery, pink princess room in a few years. Empower kids to make decisions on easily replaceable and more affordable items, like adhesive decals and bedding. “At school age, kids start to have an opinion on their room. This is a good opportunity to let them express themselves,” recommends Sharon. “Lamps, posters, throw pillows and bedding are great ways to reflect their personalities without breaking your budget.” 

Incorporate versions of their favorite colors.

“Your kids’ favorite colors are likely to change as often as they do. The big, bright color they love might completely overwhelm the space,” explains Sharon. Instead, she advises incorporating their favorite color on the walls, but with a neutral spin. If your child loves blue, try Benjamin Moore® paint color Early Morning CC-818. For pink, she suggests Benjamin Moore® Pink Moiré CC-158. For purple, try Benjamin Moore® Blue Viola CC-940. Anytime you are painting a kid’s room, consider using Natura®, which has zero VOCs* and is certified asthma- & allergy-friendly®.
