Kid's Bedroom Accessories
Accessorize Equals Personalize!
First of all what is an accessory? According to Dictionary.com an accessory is: a) A subordinate or supplementary item; OR b) Something nonessential but desirable that contributes to an effect or result.
Well I don't know about you, but part "b" covers a lot of my stuff! It's not necessary, but I want it! So, a bedroom accessory would be the things that make a room special for your child, like family photos, your kid's favorite collectibles and wall hangings. Things that mean something to your child.
If you can answer this one question, everything else should fall into place!
To me the most important question to ask yourself is how long do you want to use this accessory? Do you want it to last for years and be usable with several different types of bedroom themes, or do you want something cute and funky that will only last through the current theme room you're working on?
Your answer will determine how much time and money you want to spend on your bedrooms accessories.
Examples Of Accessories For Kids Rooms
In the baby nursery, you might have a shelf to display special books or toys you buy that you'll want to keep for years, or a few family photos on the wall. Be sure to have photos of baby as well, plus family pets! If you have special items that have been handed down in your family put them up on a shelf that baby can't reach but you can still see them. This really adds that personal touch and adds some history to your decor.
In the kids' rooms, you could have basically the same as in the baby's room. But as the kids get older they will start having an opinion on which photos to put on the wall or the items for a collectibles shelf. These will all be things that have a special meaning to your child.
Wall decor as a bedroom accessory in my opinion covers anything and everything on the walls. It could be Wallies cutouts, decorative shelving, mirrors, posters, pictures & message boards etc.
This is also a case of, 'you CAN have too much of a good thing'. If you get too many things on the walls, it can easily look cluttered and unorganized. So if your child likes to stick photos and posters on the wall, give her a specific place to do so and make it easy for her to change them around.
When it comes to teens, it's pretty wide open for what you could use as a bedrooms accessories. If you would want it in your bedroom or even your living room, teens would probably want some version of it in their bedrooms. As I always say when it comes to teen bedrooms, 'think apartment'.
Besides the things already listed above, by the time they're teens there may be music posters, awards and ribbons, their best friends photos and other memorabilia to display.
This would be everything else that you might use as kids' bedroom accessories like figurines, collectibles, trophies, favorite stuffed animals.
Some of these items could be displayed on the wall shelves or in display cases, and become wall decor.
And don't forget to add mirrors. Kids of all ages love to look at themselves.
