Question: Since we have had another baby, our 3 year old son is moving out of the nursery into his own bedroom, which is much larger. How can we decorate his new bedroom to make it as cozy and intimate as the nursery?
Answer: A small child may feel lost in a large bedroom, especially if they are just moving from a smaller nursery. In order to make it more intimate for your son here are several things you can do:
- Create a false dado or chair rail by applying a wallpaper border on the wall a few inches above the child's eyesight level. Wallpaper borders are inexpensive and easily replaced as your child's tastes change.
- Paint the ceiling in a dark or vivid color. One reason we paint ceilings white is to visually lift the dimensions of the space so it will seem taller. A darker ceiling will make the height of the room seem much lower and the room will be much more child-friendly. You could paint the ceiling in a navy blue, rich taupe or any color that your child loves. Consider painting a faux night sky complete with twinkling stars.
- Keep the colors in the bedroom on the warm side, which means any color that has a red or yellow undertone. Warm colors are usually much more comforting than cool colors. To determine if a color has a warm or a cool undertone - think of lipsticks: a blue-red lipstick is a cool color and an orange-red lipstick is a warm color. Any color is available in a warm base.
-Child sized or small scale furniture will also keep the rooms dimensions on the toddler's perspective. Add cubbyholes for him to store his belongings in and possibly help him to make a small fort or playhouse that will fit in the corner of his new room as an option for his own special play area.
