The majority of us would love to see a creative streak flourish in our kid’s. Who doesn’t like the idea that their little ones could be in touch with themselves enough to create amazing art? Plus, we all know how fun it can be to make things. Who wouldn’t want that for their children? That’s why most of us rush out and buy art supplies and musical instruments to get their creative juices flowing. But, there’s something else you might not have considered. To be as creative as possible, it helps to be in a creative space. So, we think it’s about time you got creative with the design of your kid’s bedroom. As well as giving them the perfect creative space, this will ensure you get to have a little artistic fun, too!
Build the furniture
Instead of opting for the flatpacked versions, why not build furniture for the room? This may seem daunting, but a quick search online will tell you everything you need to know to get started. You could make the cot, wardrobe, and even the bed if you wanted to. Once you’ve got a rough idea of what to do, stock up on the right tools and materials.
Depending on what you’re making, you’ll need chainsaws, drills, and glue guns. Make sure, too, to stock up on safety equipment. Otherwise, your first attempt could be your last! Take a look at the suggestions on sites like Chain Cutting to ensure you get the best safety gloves. Look out, too, for goggles and protective clothing. Once you’re all stocked up, you’re ready to get started! There are many benefits to making the furniture. You’ll be able to suit it to your specific needs. Plus, if you do a good job in the making, these pieces could become family keepsakes!
Let your child get involved
As this will be your child’s creative space, it’s worth getting them involved in the design process. Obviously, they can’t help you make furniture, but there’s plenty of other things they can get involved in. How far their involvement goes depends on how far you’re willing to take the creative theme. If you’re feeling brave, you could let them paint the walls, or at least assist in the design. If you don’t want them leaving such a permanent mark, encourage them to paint pictures to hang on the walls instead. You could even sit down with them and make bunting to hang across the ceiling!
Look for new ideas
Creativity comes from inside, but there’s no reason you can’t take inspiration from elsewhere. They do say, after all, that there are no new ideas. A quick search on sites like Pinterest will lead you to some fantastic ideas you never would’ve thought of. These will mainly concern the small stuff, like storage space and wall decorations. They may not have the same creative impact as wall decorations, but they’re equally important. After all, it’s impossible to get creative in a messy space!
