Design Ideas For A Guest Bedroom - As a professional interior designer and a person who specializes in child's bedroom layout (it is the most rewarding and fun!) , I think that among the most essential elements in the initial design of a little boy's bedroom is to add your son in the process as far as possible. If they are a little old, it is great to sit down and have a quick discussion on what they imagine their new bedroom may look like. Although the details covered in this process are mostly determined by your child's age, by age three, many children will already have shaped some tastes regarding what colors they like best, and a few may have a specific theme in mind.
Another way to begin is by getting them look at a few of the photos of the child's bedding that's available on the internet, and have them point out several styles that appeal to them straight away. Many little boys do seem to enjoy bright and bold primary colors and Disney action figures, however there are people who dream of dinosaurs, pirates, construction themes, cars, trains, airplanes, or western topics. These sets are often quite economically priced, and a great choice when you believe that they may have another bedroom layout change in several decades.
A helpful tip, and one that I highly recommend is to purchase the bedding prior to painting the space. It works best to deliver the quilt or comforter, shams, etc. into the paint shop with you to ensure you get the perfect "match" on colour or tone. For instance, if there is a grey-blue colour in the bedding collection, you might want to tone the paint colour down a few colors for the walls. I always bring the paint samples home prior to purchasing the paint, merely to see how the true lighting within the room, impacts the shade.
Day and evening light can have an impact on your colour choice. The art is fun to integrate into a child's room as well. There's lots of art available for little boy's rooms that can be purchased online. Another choice is to simply find a photo resource site, print and save the image, and purchase simple frames to put them in. I did this for my own children and was really happy with the outcome. Again, this can be another interesting way to add your child in the design process.
If they are seeking cowboys, horses, trains or cars, simply type this in, and there are dozens and dozens of options to pick from. |} Vector graphics are fantastic for cartoon type characters. If you're handy with Adobe Photoshop or a similar application, you can change colors in the pictures, add text (for example, their name or inspirational quote), or place a collage together using several photographs. I usually purchase the frames from Ikea and sometimes paint the frames to match a colour in the bedding or image.
