It’s not enough to outfit your child’s room with a bed, closet, and play corner. They need more: relaxation, calm, good sleep, and sensory development. So it’s important to design the décor of this room with precision and care, from the curtains to little details like lamps, pillows, and soft music.
Pay Attention to the Lights
If you want your child to feel peaceful and calm in their room, try as much as possible to pay attention to the little details of the décor:
- Decorate the room with curtains that block outside light when they want to sleep.
- Pay attention to the play of light. To help your child relax and get rid of stress, ask the decorator to outfit the ceiling of the room with dim lamps or stars and moons that glow when the lights are turned off.
- Try shapes that light up from the inside, like toys in the form of cartoon characters they love.
Focus on Texture
Your child can only sleep well and enjoy the calm if all their senses are satisfied. So try to pay attention to their sense of touch, too.
- Choose sheets, pillows, and a duvet cover carefully. They should be made of a nice, smooth fabric; rough fabrics can cause itching and a sense of annoyance.
- Add to this toys that are also made of smooth fabrics; when they go to sleep, for example, give them a cotton bear to hug. There’s no doubt that this will make them feel warm and safe.
Our Advice to You
- Organize your child’s room as much as you can. This will please them visually and help them relax. So arrange the space; don’t leave the pillows on the ground and everywhere, for example, but rather spread about in a special way that makes your child happy.
- All these steps may not be enough to relax your child; you should pay attention to their sense of hearing, as well. Have them listen to soft music; the music produced by lamps that reflect starry skies and galaxies on the ceiling and walls is a good example.
