A house has walls and a roof but a home is everything in-between. Making a house feel like home is important for kids. I still remember the first house that I ever lived in and that house, to me, will always be home. My parents painted my walls a bright blue (my favorite color) and pictures of dolphins were around every corner. I know for a fact that my childhood-self would have been overwhelmed with joy if I had walked into my room one day to find a dolphin decal on my wall.
When you hear the word "home" what do you think of? First, I think of the people I share the home with. Then I think of my room; the place where I spent a lot of my alone time. It was a place for creativity and a canvas for self-expression. I was able to start with four white walls and build a world within them. I truly felt that I built a home within that little room and I truly feel that you can too.
Here are a few ways to make a room feel like home:
1. Try using your favorite soothing color. Colors that make you feel relaxed will help make you feel calm when entering your room.
2. Add personal touches throughout the room. By that I mean, if you enjoy music, have music related themes found around the room. As someone who strongly enjoys music, I would add this music decal above the bed in my room.
3. Kids have wild imaginations and their rooms should encourage that kind of brain work. Letting them choose how to decorate their room is a wonderful place to start. Creativity can be sparked based on your surroundings. Give kids the surroundings they need for their minds to explore.
