Beautiful Kids Bedrooms with Modular Furniture


Using modular furniture can be a great way to decorate your kids’ room. A makeover for the kids’ rooms can be quite taxing as we are never sure what the children may like to have and when their ideas change. Their likes and dislikes are acute and mercurial. They outgrow their decorating ideas so fast that it can be quite difficult to decorate their rooms.

What appeals to adults may never appeal to youngsters. What is liked by teenagers may look impractical and not good looking to the parents. Teenage girls have different choices and teenage boys’ taste may run entirely differently. So it is best to take the likes and dislikes of your kids before you attempt to makeover their bedrooms for them.

Modular furniture may be quite cost effective when you are doing the teens’ bedrooms. Include the children when you are discussing makeover ideas with your interior decorator. Many times if the kids have a chance of explaining what kind of décor they may like to have in their room at the start, the decorators may be able to incorporate the ideas while choosing furniture.

First ask the kids what kind of wall color or wall décor they may like to have. And give them a choice of what finish and colour scheme they will like their bed furnishing and wardrobes to be done. Ask what kind of area rugs or carpets they like. You can even decide on the kind of shelves – like floating shelves or free standing wall units they will like for their books etc.

The advantage of modular furniture is that you can expand or add to it even at a later date. You may choose to have storage built in – underneath or at the headboards – and you can add a matching work table separately or along the bedstead. You can have a trundle bed for your kids’ friend overnight stay or make it a bunk bed type.

Decorating the kids’ room must bring happiness and satisfaction to you and your kid both. By planning well in advance, you can avoid any stress of tension for you and disappointment and frustration for your kid. Go online with your child and look at the options available and discuss with your interior decorator for a beautiful makeover.
