FINDING THE RIGHT COLOURS
Wall colour can impact your mood, said Sue Wad-
den of Sherwin-Williams in Cleveland. She recom-
mends avoiding primary colours in favor of more
natural or neutral tones like greens, browns, light
grays or soft blues.
"It's easier on the eye," she said. "It's easier on
To promote relaxation, consider using softer or
less saturated versions of the bright colours typically
used in kids' rooms, she added. If you're concerned
that your child's colour choices could get too bold,
pick several colours you could live with and let them
select from those, Wadden suggested.
You can also use other elements to add the pops of
colour that kids crave. Consider painting a colourful
accent wall, or adding a vibrant rug or patterned
"Bring in brighter tones with secondary pieces,"
BRING IN THEIR INTERESTS
Let your child help choose the room's theme, said
Janet Paik, an editor with the online interior dec-
orating website Houzz.com. "If you want it to feel
like their personal sanctuary, it needs to be their own
space," she said.
It can be easy and inexpensive to incorporate a
favorite hobby, sports team or activity into the room.
Decals, bedding, artwork and accessories can high-
light a child's interests, and are easy to change out
as they get older, said Melisa White of Melisa White
Interiors in New York.
Writable surfaces such as chalkboard paint or large
marker boards also let kids customise their room.
EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE
Provide bins, shelving and storage that children can
reach to take out and put away their things, White
said. Everyone enjoys a tidy room: "Clutter can cause
anxiety, although children may not understand that,"
An organised room will help children relax, agreed
Heather Turgeon, co-author of The Happy Sleeper:
The Science-Backed Guide to Helping Your Baby
Get a Good Night's Sleep---Newborn to School Age
"A lot of clutter and toys can keep kids' minds
activated, the same way having an office desk in your
room or a pile of stressful papers beside your bed
might do for you," said Turgeon, a psychotherapist.
SURROUND KIDS WITH WHAT THEY LOVE
Consider including a shelf or bulletin board where
kids can display items important to them, she said.
When Katillac was working with a teenager who
collects shoes, she put in shelving where he could
set out some of his favorite pairs. That not only kept
things orderly; it created a meaningful vignette in
"Kids are very vocal about the things they like,"
Katillac said. "Look at their interests and see if you
can turn it into a piece of artwork."
Ideally, the room should be media-free at bedtime,
Create a communal charging station where the
entire family charges electronics someplace other
than bedrooms, she suggests.
"Have everybody say good night to their devices
at least an hour before bedtime," she said.
If children keep a computer in their room, try to
separate it visually from the sleep space with a book-
shelf, curtain or another creative design idea. (AP)
