You like getting your child used to sleeping in their own room; it means independence for them and convenience for you. You should know, though, that this room is not just for sleeping. It’s a space for your child to feel comfortable, form their personality and build their abilities. It’s their second home, so you shouldn’t choose its décor randomly. You need to add some important details.
A 3-Dimensional Room
If you want your child to feel truly relaxed in their room, you can make it happen.
- Divide the room into 3 corners: the bed area, a corner for drawing and coloring with a table and chair, and a play area. It’s always important to keep them from facing the wall; open spaces make them feel more at ease.
- Choose a room that lets the sunlight in. This is necessary for their health and forming their personality.
Maybe until now you didn’t know how important the colors of your child’s room were. They have a strong impact on them.
- Know that some colors affect their personality. If you want them to feel comfortable and calm in their room, for example, decorate it with blue, beige, green, brown and light gray.
- If you want them to develop self-confidence and willpower, for example, surround them with colors like orange, yellow, white, pink, red, fuchsia, and gold.
Layout of Furniture
You must remember, too, that the way you set up the furniture also affects your child’s personality. So focus on doing it this way:
- Put a sofa in the right corner facing the door. You can sit on it and play with them.
- Put their toys to the left of the door.
- Lean the bed against the middle of the wall to the right of the door if possible.
To make sure that your child is living in a place they feel safe, decorate the room with artwork.
- Distribute a number of family pictures around the room, and focus on the ones that feature you together.
- Put a picture showing a cartoon character who protects them at night on the table next to their bed; this will make them feel strong, confident, and reassured.

Don’t forget to put a stuffed animal on their bed. If they cuddle it while they sleep, it may make them feel safe.
