Choosing a Unique Theme for Your Childrens Bedroom

By: Ben Weissman

While it can be fun and exciting to decorate, sometimes it's also difficult to think of a theme for an area. This is particularly true when decorating your child's room. You want to be unique and creative, but you also want to keep in mind your child's personality and his or her likes and dislikes. Fortunately, there is all sorts of children's bedroom furniture available today to inspire creative themes around which you can build a beautiful child's room.

Does your child like fanciful stories and gallant epic tales? Perhaps pirates or fairies thrill your youth to no end. For these little adventurers, you can start with kids' canopy beds, which can be set up to cater to both boys and girls today. Use it to build a castle that can house a prince or be stormed by wandering armies and bands of thieves for your son, or create a lighthouse or tower for your princess of a little girl. Either way, you've started with an idea that can be carried through as a theme throughout the entire room. Perhaps the canopy could be the sail for a pirate's ship, and the rest of the room could be "decked" out. There is no end to the possibilities.

Maybe your child likes to get away from it all and be alone, or maybe he or she is a star gazer, with a head in the clouds. Loft beds provide the perfect frame for such ideals, creating a vibe that feels like being away from the rest of the world by lifting the child above the mundane life of the everyday world. You can use this as a basis for the rest of the room as well, painting the ceiling to reflect a daytime sky ' light blue with fluffy white clouds ' or a nighttime sky full of stars and planets. Rainbows, birds, space shuttles, or other things that interest the child can also be incorporated into the design, perhaps in the sheets, d?r, or walls.

In order to create a nice thematic design, however, you will need some extensive organizational practices. Remember that children have toys that clutter up a space, as well as games, shoes, and clothes that rival the closet of a supermodel. Storing the excess is essential to the design of the space. For this purpose, you may want to consider incorporating kids' storage beds into the space, where you can make use of additional drawers and shelves to keep clutter and mess to a minimum. This will allow you to include more creative applications in the space with nothing distracting from the theme.

Kids' bedroom furniture never has to be boring. It can easily be decorated to create a theme, with the personality of the child and the unique thoughts of you as the designer blending to bring home the perfect decoration ideas. Because most of the furniture for youths begins as a blank slate, it is easy to turn it into whatever you wish!
