The world around us is fascinating. And it is equally gratifying to know that there is science behind everything. Children, with their inquisitive nature, are always up to exploring something new. Their ability to observe and learn from their surroundings is what paves the way to experimentation and creativity. As a parent, encouraging their curiosity is part of the job description. One way to do this is by designing a room that inspires them. With National Science Day around the corner, our designers have given their favourite tips on creating a bedroom for kids that are inspired by Science.
1. Use Elements That Depict The Outer Space
In the formative years, the outer space is one thing that has left all of us in awe. Learning about its mystifying facts is an exhilarating experience. You could design your child’s room to reflect this experience. Start by painting one of the walls with stars, comets, asteroids, meteors, and more. If you wish to make it more defined, you could simply paint the elements of the solar system in a dark blue background.
If painting is not your cup of tea, get some stickers instead. Stickers that glow in the dark add the zing factor.
Including ceilings as a part of the design is a good idea to give a complete aesthetic sense to the room. Thus, you could go one step further by hanging planet pendant lamps from the ceiling.
Furniture like rocket-shaped seating space and bean bags with space-theme are great add-ons. Make sure the other pieces in the room like the study table, bedside lamp, bedsheet, and cupboard complement the rest of the elements.
2. Decorate With Posters
Posters are one of the most accessible and most inexpensive options to transform your kid’s room into a science-themed room. You could get posters of famous scientists, math formulas, the food chain, physical conversion units, and so much more. Converting one of the walls into the periodic table is not only a great way to add a Science-themed twist to the room, but it will also help your child learn the elements on it.
3. Bring In Geometric Textures
Imbibing a bit of geometry into the theme makes a room science-themed instantaneously. Start by sticking a wallpaper of any geometric texture. Go further by adding elements like a table lamp, chair, and study table that match the theme. This approach gives you a lot of options to play with colours.
4. Play With Wall Units
Installing wall units and decorating them with objects like a miniature microscope, globe, conical flask, or fossil figurines is yet another way to adding a scientific touch to your child’s room. You could also place some of the academic books or classics of Stephen Hawking and Charles Darwin to complement the theme.
Having a science-themed room could inspire any child or even the child in you. HomeLane believes that a little bit of imagination and creativity is all it takes to get you there.
