December 1, 2006, Newsletter Issue #40: Remember Who the Room is For

Tip of the Week

When planning how you want to decorate and equip your boy's or boys' bedroom, the first thing you need to consider is who will be using the room. Will the room be shared? How close in age are the children who will share it? If the children are not close in age, how will you divide the space so each of the boy's needs are met? Do they have similar tastes, or will you have to find a way to strike a balance between the different things the children want?

Start by discussing these things with your son or sons. If they want a theme and can agree on it, you're off to a great start. If they want different themes, consider choosing some basic bedding and décor elements, and using each child's favorite accessories to build a theme in his part of the room.
