Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
More often than not, bedrooms tend to be neutral spaces. After all, who doesn`t want to create a calming environment when a good night`s rest is on the line? But when you have neutral walls and bedding, accent pieces become that much more critical for creating a balanced design. Don`t be afraid to go big with your accents for the master bedroom. Find pieces that include some of the bolder shades in your color scheme. Don`t shy away from patterns or prints. Choose items that you love; just be sure that they bring your personality into the room.
The star of your bedroom may be the bed, but don‘t count out nightstands as an essential part of the room. A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home. When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken. Don‘t be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you‘ll want to make sure your table isn‘t too high or low.
