Child's room - how to arrange it?
Furnishing a children's room is a great adventure - regardless of whether it will be a room for a newborn child or a decoration after renovation for a few years old.

Bet on minimalism
Minimalism and child seem to be two very distant poles. They're hard to reconcile, hard to meet. However, minimalism is not only an extreme edition, with lots of white and a few objects. It is also common sense to set limits to one's own state of possession. It's worth getting a little inspired by it.
Very useful in small rooms are storage systems, various drawers, cardboard boxes or under-bed modules, which can accommodate all children's treasures.
This is standard advice, which we ignore more and more often in the decoration of small interiors. Yes, a small room in dark colours may look intriguing, but not in a childish way. Here it is better to bet on bright, optically enlarging colours.
What to do if the room resembles a "clinic"? Fortunately, you can avoid the effect of a grim corridor. How to arrange a narrow room for a child?
Place on the space above the floor
When there is not enough space on the floor, until you ask to buy a high bookcase, high wardrobes, a mezzanine... However, moderation must be exercised. A narrow room built from the ceiling to the floor will become even narrower and more overwhelming. The best idea would be a mezzanine with a bed on top and placed underneath it, a low but wide bookcase.
Playing with optics
A narrow, long room can be slightly optically widened and shortened by painting small walls in a dark colour and a large one in a contrasting light colour.
Aesthetics - a common choice?
If the child is already big enough to express his or her opinion clearly, it is worth giving him or her this opportunity instead of choosing all the furniture and colours of the room for them. Of course, parents are the guardians of the budget and of reason. However, you should remember that this child will live in a room and spend a lot of time here for fun, learning and rest. It should feel taken into account and surrounded by popular motifs.
