Design a long-lasting kid's bedroom with an Amish small computer desk

by Tom Grimes

Parents who are designing a room that is meant for a young child may be tempted to decorate with characters and colors that might appeal to the youngster - such as Spongebob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and other popular icons - but The Washington Examiner reports that it may be more cost-effective to make the room a little more neutral.

Children rapidly lose and gain interests as they grow older, and wallpapering a room with Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear might seem like a good idea at the time, but, in only a few years, the room will have to be redesigned.

Instead, homeowners may want to focus on longer-lasting design elements.

"If you're going to spend the money to decorate, choose classic, not cartoon-y type fabrics," interior designer Page Palmer told the news provider.

Changing the bedding and pillows with themed designs, from Spongebob to Twilight, can take the place of more permanent solutions, like painting the walls yellow or black. Parents should keep the walls neutral and basic.

Pieces of Amish bedroom furniture can also be practical additions to a child's room, because each item is built to last. A computer desk can be handy for coloring and reading in younger years, and will be a beautiful place for a computer as the child matures.
