Finding The Balance In Children’s Bedroom Décor

Children's bedroom decor - They want Disney – You Want Longevity… Here’s what the experts say!  

Life’s often a compromise – and most parents agree that parenthood involves a LOT of negotiation (some would say bribery!)

This is frequently the case when it comes to decorating a child’s bedroom. They see the latest Emojis or Disney characters emblazoned on a duvet and mum or dad’s heart sinks.   

Adults want a clean, organised and coordinated bedroom that aids restful sleep.

Kids are all about the fun with a kaleidoscope of clashing colours and all their favourite characters thrown in for good measure.

So how do you solve the children’s bedroom interior design dilemma?

“The focus for the year ahead will be on functionality in the bedroom.

Bedroom

Putting your house on the market is a big step, and to ensure the best possible outcome, homeowners need to consider every room in the house and take the time to make each one special and unique. The bedroom can often be overlooked, but it is in fact, one of the most important locations in the home. Potential buyers like to visualise their new surroundings, and get an idea of what their future home might look like.  Making the bedroom memorable will contribute to a quick, hassle-free sale of the house.
