Do your kids love spending time in the great outdoors? Let their passion for nature inspire you to redecorate their bedrooms.
It’s easier now than ever before to emphasize the natural world in your kids’ bedrooms. Get some new ideas with these three ways to bring nature into your kids’ rooms.
1. Focus On Natural Light
Natural light promotes wakefulness during the day and sleep at night. Light streaming into a room changes the overall mood of the space and looks beautiful. If your kids have windows in their bedrooms, let your window dressings accent the windows simply. Avoid covering windows with fabric or furniture if possible.
You can mimic natural light by choosing lightbulbs that display an appropriate warmth level. Look at your lights’ color rendering index (CRI) to see how well the bulb replicates sunlight. If the CRI is above 90, the light the bulb emits approximates sunlight. When you view an object under this lighting, the color won’t look yellowed or whitened.
2. Bring In Plants
Low-maintenance plants can inspire your children’s love for gardening. And they look beautiful, too. You can choose something like a pothos or a snake plant to purify the air while giving your kids something simple to take care of.
If you don’t want to roll the dice on living plants, you can use felt plants. These charming soft plants make your kids’ room cozy and promote tranquility.
3. Use Natural Materials
The final way to bring nature into your kids’ rooms is to use furniture made from quality, natural materials. Using eco-friendly, solid wood furniture is an effective way to decorate a fun bedroom your kids will love. For example, a bunk bed with a solid wood frame adds a stable place for your kids to sleep and play.
Other than using furniture made from solid wood, you can also hang natural materials on walls. Wall hangings made from jute, wool, cotton, rustic sticks, and blended fabrics add whimsy and style to your children’s rooms.
As you can see, you have a lot of opportunities to use natural elements when designing your kids’ rooms. Use expressive lighting, vibrant plants, and natural materials to bring your kids closer to nature.
