The fact that each child will need from birth to define personal space, we have no doubt from my parents. It is natural that this space, in the form of a child’s room should be appropriately decorated. The task is not as simple as it may seem, and is considered difficult even for experienced designers. When you prepare the nursery, primary attention should be given not only to the quality of the materials used, and accurate compliance of the generated design the age of the baby.
So, the child would be extremely uncomfortable in a room decorated in the style of hi-tech or minimalism – it is right for a fairy-tale motifs and plenty of fun accessories. Great attention requires correct design of the Windows in the nursery – it not only attracts attention due to its large size, but also due to the fact that is the main source of sunlight, so necessary for any baby. In addition to proper execution, you need to think about its quality – it should exclude the possibility of drafts and spontaneous opening.
Before you start decorating the Windows, you must ensure that it fully complies with safety requirements:
- the window sill should not be low because «curiosity» kids unlimited;
- window handle, allowing you to tear off the sash must be replaced with a standard, those which are equipped with a lock-block;
- window trim in the nursery should be perfect so as to avoid the formation of drafts and the ingress of dust and moisture;
- it is advisable to install automatic ventilation flap;
- the ledge must be secured very reliably to «twitching» the child behind the curtains did not lead to his downfall;
- if possible, you should stick to the glass a special protective film preventing scattering of splinters in that case, if the window is broken.
If an existing window satisfies all the requirements, you can begin decorating. Self-service nursery is not an easy task, and this issue should be given no less attention than the rest of the interior. The most common mistake parents independently planning the interior is the use of heavy and dense curtains.
While the baby is small enough and still cannot walk independently, this approach may be justified, as heavy and dense textiles better insulates the room from bright sunlight, making the day the baby sleep more comfortable. But as children get older, such curtains, it is better to refuse. Not only that, they create a high load on the ledge, dense textiles requires little care, and is a great «dust collector», that’s not good for the baby’s health. Therefore, for window decorations in the nursery make better use of light textiles, easy to clean.
Before you place the window in the child should consult the child if he already knows how to talk. If the time has not come yet, will have to rely on your own taste. The main way of decorating children’s window is, of course, textiles. You should know that it is important for the baby to be surrounded by bright, eye-pleasing colors. Of course, not be wise to hang a very bright curtains, it is better if they have a neutral shade, but bright edging. Good effect have curtains with bright, recognizable cartoon characters.
If there is a possibility of radical change, would be a great option to replace the standard rectangular Windows for arched. These Windows in the children’s allow you to create a more peaceful, harmonious interior, although more complicated in decorating. Do not place on a windowsill in the nursery of flowers, behind which needs constant care. Besides being a bit of a grown up child will definitely try to taste them, the pot can be easily tilted for yourself that will inevitably lead to injury. For the Windows in the nursery is more appropriate to place on the window sill favorite and colorful plush toys.
It should be noted that the window in the children’s room must match the design of the rest of the room. For example, if the whole room is decorated in the style of «little Princess» – with lots of pink, lace and pure «women’s» accessories, window, decorated in a simple and sleek design will look like some alien object. Of course, in the interior it is best to avoid excessive «passion» in a certain direction, remembering that the room should change as the child grows and changes interests. We need to remember this when selecting design options window, because the very fact of its existence in a small room inevitably attracts attention.
With the advanced design options window in the nursery using curtains you can see in the video
Design a child’s room without a window needs to be thought through carefully. One of the main tasks in this area will ensure an adequate level of lighting. Do the standard options for the location of lighting fixtures will not work here. If the room is intended for a child of preschool age, child’s room design without window may not include the clearance of the working area – it is better to leave a little more space, which the baby itself you will find the application.
You should avoid overly bright lighting. Ideally, in a room with no window, it is desirable to at least draw. Of course it would be better if it’s not a drawing, and artificial niche of plasterboard, the depth of which is installed the led lighting is able to change its color. This «window» it is appropriate to decorate the standard curtains to match the walls, to make the window sill on which to place toys, light frame, etc. the Backlight of the window in the daytime to keep included – electricity bills it is almost not affected by the efficiency of the LEDs.
The rest of the lighting must also be bright enough but not blinding. It makes sense to be on all the usual chandeliers located under the ceiling. It is better to use a variety of sconces on the wall, on which you can install both standard and colored lamps. Enough original will look the illumination of the same led strip, put on the perimeter of the floor – it will give not only a certain percentage of uniqueness to a room without Windows, but will be original «nightlight» for kid.
If a child became the owner of the room with two Windows, is a great advantage. Of course, for the child. For parents, two Windows present a lot more difficulties in obtaining than one. Undoubtedly, two Windows in a small room requires a special approach to the design, but at the same time much more possibilities in terms of choosing the style of the room. The two Windows can be immediately divided into two parts for study and relaxation.
In order to equip «training» part of the room and not lose a large part of the space to place a desktop can at the window – the interior is quite popular at present, and to engage in natural lighting young child will be much more comfortable than artificial. In this case, all around the window space can be turned into interesting shelves, which at first will be toys, and as children get older – already his workbooks and textbooks.
Instead of the sill in this case you will need to order a special top. Appropriate for such a design a child’s room and if the window is located in the middle, and the room is originally issued to a student or young person.
In this case, you should avoid excessive decoration of the Windows and from standard textile curtains should not refuse. It is more appropriate so-called roller shades, which has such advantages as:
- they do not accumulate dust;
- there is a possibility of equipping them with an electric drive with remote control;
- various colors and easy, «air» design.
Thus, the design of children’s room with a Desk near the window can be simultaneously strict, but not devoid of grace. Moreover, such placement of the table allows you to save space in the room where you can arrange child small gym.
