Some parents question whether minimalism in a child’s room is possible at all. In practice, a room designed this way has many advantages – both for us and for toddlers. Here are some practical remarks on ideal minimalism for children’s room.
Minimalism or splendour: which is better in a child’s room?
Richly decorated and equipped interiors of children’s rooms are still popular in our country. Such arrangements gained particular recognition in the 90s, when we ”relished” the free market and the universality of goods – including those for children. Why is minimalism also attractive? Not only because of the convenience of such interior when cleaning and organizing children’s things. It also allows the child to learn order more easily and not to get attached to material things
Advantages of minimalism
It should be remembered that not only the ability to easily organize and organize the space is an advantage of minimalism in the child’s room. It also matters that such an interior can be easily modified and with the growth of the child slightly change its appearance
How to arrange a minimalist children’s room? Following the child’s needs
Minimalism is about limiting the things around us as much as possible. However, it cannot happen that it is only the parents who will choose the toys that will be at the disposal of the toddler. Remember that despite the decision on minimalistic interior design, it will belong to the child. They should feel comfortable in it
Minimalism helps to arrange the space in the child’s room
The assumption that the arrangement of children’s space will be carried out in a minimalist spirit does not necessarily mean that the room will be poorly furnished. The most important task is to organize the space and use only those items that are currently used e.g. for playing. Therefore, it is worth to have many storage places in the room. The child should be gradually accustomed to putting things in their place. Typically minimalist closets and lockers blended into the space, almost unnoticeable, will be in the children’s room
Minimalism and praise of good quality
Maintaining a minimalist style in a child’s room may be easier if a large number of toys, equipment or art supplies are replaced with a much smaller number of items, but of much better quality. You should also teach your children to be frugal and to take care of their furnishings, which can only pay off with the right attitudes in your child in the future
What about toys?
Finally, it falls once again to return to the topic of toys. It’s a known fact that we are happy when our kids have fun and we try to provide them with a variety of toys. Usually, they are chosen in accordance with the child’s taste and interests. We should remember that a variety of toys is one of the elements that support a child’s development from the earliest stage. For this reason, it is good to provide your child with a variety of toys. Minimalism can be used to ensure that toys are not scattered around the room. It is enough to place baskets or suitcases in it, which will sensationally manage the space and introduce order and tidiness. We will also avoid the naive belief that it is enough to put the toys on a shelf – children do not necessarily want to listen to such recommendations. Throwing them in the garbage can will be easier for them
