The children’s bedroom should be well lit, spacious, warm in the winter and easy to maintain.

The floor and wall coverings play an important role in achieving this. Parquet can be used for the floor, because it keeps the place warm during the winter and gives the room a pleasant appeal. However, it is still harder to maintain. Laminated parquet would be easier to maintain. Terracotta and granite are beautiful and hygienic floor coverings, but they keep the floor cold during the winter, which makes them unsuitable for a small child’s bedroom.

In a child’s bedroom there are two main essentials when it comes to floor coverings. Apart from a ground material, a cloth covering is also to be present. The choice between a carpet and rugs is for the house masters’ and the room’s inhabitant to decide on. They will brighten the atmosphere and make spending time there more pleasant. A wall carpet is another option, but it requires more maintaining. The colour scheme can be in various ranges. However, lighter colours are most suitable for the floor, because they help in making the whole room better lit and spacious.

Cork is another option, it’s a material that not only keeps the place warm during the winter and cool in summer, but also isolates the room from outside noises. It can also help prevent moisture affecting the walls, if the room’s walls are directly exposed to the outer climatic conditions. Wallpapers are most suitable for the walls. They are easily changed, which is an essential, since their colours and patterns are often associated to the child’s age. For a small child, they should be associated with the world of fairy tales and the flowers and animals he comes in contact with. They should later give way to latex paints in various shades, depending on the student’s preferences.

Light and pastel tones are most suitable. Ideas for the teenager’s room include placing thin vertical lines on the walls to create an optical illusion of a wider and taller room. An interesting idea for the roof in a small child’s bedroom is that it represents a part of his favourite fairy tale or depictures the night sky. That way the child will live in a small world of adventures. The teenager would prefer a hung ceiling because of the option of hidden lighting in it. This would make the room appear artistic. The child should participate in the choice of floor and wall coverings, so that he will feel comfortable and happy in his own room.
