Children have a very low concentration span and you must make sure that their environment is conducive and eye-catching to give them a reason to spend more time. With the advent of technology, they tend to stay indoors most of the times using their gadgets. The living room is the area that is mostly used compared to all other rooms in the house. In as much as we want to make them kid-friendly, we also need to consider the adults living in the household such that it is not confused to be a kids’ room. Here are a few temporary décor ideas ideal for kids.
- A touch of color to artistic accessories
Kids generally love colorful stuff. Although if not well designed it can look like clutter. You can opt for a transparent container and place the colorful accessories on one of the shelves at the corner of the living room, to act as a storage vase as well as an accessory for beauty. This includes the crayons, colored blocks, animal sculptor and of course a small flower vase. It should be high enough away from their reach not to confuse them with toys or writing materials.
- Customized throw-in pillows
Nothing excites a child like a sense of ownership. You can design a thrown in pillow on her/his birthday full embroidered with her/his name to have a personal touch with the décor. Place it in her favorite chair spacious enough to allow even the parents to cuddle the child when in their low or high times. The color of the pillow also matters a lot when it comes to gender balance. The boys might prefer the dull colors but of course the lighter versions while the girls will definitely love the bright colors.
- Poufs and pouches
It is monotonous to sit on the sofa for long yet they want to watch the favorite cartoon series with friends. Moreover, there might be limited sitting space in the living room that may warrant the children to have a comfortable space on the floor. The poufs and pouches come in handy to fill the gap with ease. Make sure that they come in different colors to make sure that it is attractive.
