Design a kid's bedroom with Amish Windsor furniture

by Tom Grimes

Many children have very fickle ideas about what they want and room design is no exception. For this reason, it may be best for parents who are looking to design a kid's bedroom to create a timeless environment that will last for years to come.

Flooring should be one of the first additions to any bedroom. The Orange County Register suggests using ceramic tiles and cover them with luxurious rugs that suit the child's taste and lifestyle. Keeping surfaces bare may also reduce clutter in a youngster's bedroom to a minimum, and carpeting can be added later for tweens and teenagers.

Neutral colors are generally long-lasting palettes for a bedroom, particularly if they are gender and age-neutral. Try to choose lighter shades that subtly indicate the theme of the space. Integrate brighter hues with the use of linens such as pillows, bedding and rugs, which can add distinctive splashes of color.

Homeowners should also keep in mind that beds are usually the focal points of any bedroom. That's why a timeless piece of Amish bedroom furniture, such as a Windsor bed, can be an ideal item in a child's bedroom. These will stand the test of time, even when a child is only coming home for college vacations.
