When it comes to decorating our children’s bedrooms, it seems us adults think we know best. But actually, involving your child in the decisions around how they decorate their bedroom can be an important part of growing up. It gives them their own space, a place to begin to work out exactly who they are and gives them a lasting sense of ownership and pride.
Kids say decorating their own bedroom is more important than their first day of school, with 92 per cent of children agreeing they’d spend more time playing in their room and doing homework (yes, really) if they had a say in how it’s decorated.
Leading Developmental Psychologist Dr. Sam Wass believes we could be denying our kids a valuable experience by not consulting them in their bedroom decor, saying; ‘It’s vital to children’s development to sometimes let them be in charge for a change.’
So once you’re ready to roll your sleeves up and get cracking (with the kids in tow of course), we’ve got just the thing to give you and your kids some inspiration.
