Chic Kid Spaces

The second installment of our continuing series on “kids spaces” focuses on how to use kid-friendly elements to bring a room together. A well-designed kid space should include items that are multi-functional, easy to clean, and adjustable as they grow. Elements that foster their independence and promote healthy self-esteem are a plus. With a little creativity, you can create a space that will be a hit with your children and their friends during their early years of life.

It’s All in the Details

A chic kid space begins with a paint color palette — a bright yet calming color scheme will liven up the room. Mount bookshelves at the appropriate height so the little ones can have easy access. Add hooks on the wall to hang bags, dress-up clothes, or other items. Be creative and turn a wall planter into storage for arts & crafts supplies. Purchase a table with adjustable legs so it can be easily be changed from a desk to a play table and don’t forget the desk chairs. Create a lounge area with a beanbag chair that has a washable cover atop a brightly colored area rug. Complete the look with colorful and whimsical accessories to pull it all together.
