When Decorating a Child’s Room; Look at it from THEIR Perspective

September 25, 2009

Kids of all ages seem to love bunk beds.  For whatever reason they seem to gravitate towards being in a lofty perch at night.  But all too often those bunk or loft beds have unsightly angles that only a child would regularly see.  Those wood slats under the top bunk bed for instance that look straight through to the floral or quilted pattern on the mattress above – yuck!

When designing or decorating a child’s room, you need to sit on the floor (or knees) and look at the room from THEIR perspective.  In this case, Platinum Home Staging, Inc.  designed a Teen’s bedroom with a loft bed.  A Queen size bed on top with a full size desk and storage underneath – including those unsightly wooden slats.  So to remedy this, our Designers killed MANY birds with one stone: by making a custom, padded “message board” and mounting it above the desk area.  It hid all the wood support slats, made it functional for this teen to place pictures, photos, notes, etc (instead of taping them to walls) and looks fabulous to boot!  The lighting was suspended as well to keep them OFF of the desk and to not take up valuable work space.
