Pretty in Pink: Designing a Little Girl’s Room

Having a little girl is so much fun. Even if your little girl is still very little, you want her to have a room she can call her own. It’s good for children to have their own space, somewhere they can have some privacy and feel comfortable spending time in. Whether you have just moved into a new home or simply think it is time for a change, keep a few tips in mind when you start planning out the design of your little girl’s room.

The first step in the design of any little girl’s room should be organization. Let’s face it, girls just seem to have a lot more stuff than boys, and the last thing you want is for all her belongings to end up all over the floor. Even if you are working in a smaller space, there are some really easy ways to get rid of clutter and stay organized.

If your little girl has lots of stuffed animals, let her keep her special treasures but get them off the floor by hanging them in a mesh net in the corner. Or invest in some wall shelving and line the stuffed animals up along the shelves. Keep a few on her bed of course, so she has some to go to sleep with.

Personalize it

Personalizing the room is so important. Whether you choose bedding with her favorite Disney character on it or purchase a plant she loves to keep in the window, it’s about knowing her personality and including items in the room that you know are special to her. Personalizing a room not only makes her feel special and the space more welcoming, but in most cases doesn’t cost you a fortune either.

Function and fun

Two of the most important elements to consider when designing your little girl’s room are functionality and fun. Her bedroom should be a place where she can listen to her favorite tunes or play with her toys, but functionality plays a key role too. Choose a bed with built-in drawers for extra storage, which is an especially ideal option in a smaller room to save from having a dresser that takes up a lot of space.

An ottoman with storage inside or wall unit in the closet works well to increase the amount of available storage in the room, so everything has its place and not cluttered and spread all around the room.

If your girl isn’t so little, you can still keep it girly and fun, but with some specific pieces that make it more mature. Simply by integrating rich colors like chocolate brown or burgundy, you instantly add an adult edge to even the most girly bedroom.

Play With Colors

Just because you’re decorating a girl’s room, that doesn’t mean that pink has to make up the whole palette. Mix and match with lots of different colors instead of thinking you always have to stick with the predictable pink and purple shades. Maintain a feminine look in the room with sheer draperies, lace accents, and a rose print rug or some throw pillows.

Even if you are working on a tight budget, there are always things you can do to transform a little girl’s room and make it all her own. It doesn’t matter if she still dreams of fairytale princesses or wants a more grown-up look, you can design the perfect bedroom for your little angel girl.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7}.
