Make it cozy. Kids love to cuddle, so fill your childs room with items she can use to self-soothe, like a large stuffed animal or body pillow to lounge on, or a soft blanket with enough weight to feel like a hug. Bedding, pillows, and rugs should be soft to the touch, of course, so test-drive all materials before bringing them into the room. Another item that can make kids feel cozy? Family photos. Seeing the faces of their loved ones surrounding them in their bedroom makes children feel safe and relaxed.
Embrace color psychology. There is a reason nurseries have long been designed in pale pink, baby blue, or soft yellow—they are soothing hues. So, while you might want to buck the trends or honor your sons love of fire engines, bright reds and other bold colors are too stimulating to be good choices for a calming kids room.
