How to make the best of your interiors according to child psychology

A space for the kids is not about making it look beautiful and filling it up with books and toys. It's about the mindful curation of the space and a dysfunctional and productive output that we can secure effectively.

Interior designing is generally associated with making the interiors look pretty and luxurious but at the same time, interior designing is also affecting the psychology and the moods of the people that live in it.

Children have the most profound possibilities of growth and therefore are highly sensitive to colour, shape, objects and the environment around them. The place where you keep the child safe or their sleeping place actually affects their brains much more than you think. 

It is the psychology of interior design that can help the child develop their cognitive and receptive functions and has been successfully used by designers and architects to procure the best out of the space. 

So, interiors and decor can actually influence your child’s emotions!

Children are very sensitive. They are yet very curious. They get attached to objects, shapes, patterns, and colours with greater affinity than a normal human being. They get intrigued by tiny details and how they interpret that detail can have long term effects on the behaviour aspect of their psyche. Unlike traditional times, now a child spends more time in their bedroom.


It is hence important to create a space for them that is a kids-friendly happiness corner. There should be an efficient utilization of space without cluttering things and specific designs and colours taking the psychological and creative factors into consideration.



DECLUTTER WITH STORAGE

 

Clearly, if the room is to let the child develop some qualities, it should be living in a clean and decluttered environment. The space should be placed according to the normal patterns of regular storage cabins and a good space for other movements and play areas in the room. 

Tidiness is also something that is embraced in Feng Shui and design composition, as it accents the therapeutic aspect of being tidy in your space.

Keeping the room tidy saves up your time, leads to better cognitive and behavioural growth and decreases stress, discomfort and anxiety among kids.

It is also proven that kids that grow up in an organised and tidy environment have better learning and organising skills. 



CONSIDER FUNCTIONALITY

 

A stimulating environment is very important for the kids as they grow bored out of things all the time. Making a flexible pattern in the room regarding movable furniture and not overdoing the themes of their bedrooms or classrooms is one way of getting the point across. Give the room space to grow just like the kids grow.

Capturing the details and cherishing the moments are more important than creating a fixed colour for a specific gender or themed bedrooms that the kids might grow out of.

Curate a timeless and classic interior look for the kids that stays everlasting and beloved. 


THE BEST OUT OF NATURE

 


Nature and greenery are very important for children. Nature provides them with a world of newer experiences and looking at greenery makes them calm and cool. 

To input, a similar experience to your kid's room, make sure that there is enough natural light all throughout the day as against a dark cornered room. Sunlight is important for the kids to grow and their bodies to remain strong. Making sure there are some house plants would make the environment of the rooms better and resemble the natural beauty that they find outside. 

Resembling nature inside the rooms make kids detail-oriented and appreciate the natural environment much more. 

You can add textures that are natural like wood or marble and granite, add bigger windows, natural colour palette, add greens and incorporate a minimalistic Scandinavian design. 


THE COLOUR PSYCHOLOGY

.

choosing the right interior colour that has both physiological and psychological components creates a perfect space.  You know your child better than anyone as well as the personality of your family.   Consider a calm and tranquil retreat for balance. Avoid colours that promote eye fatigue in the study room.  Whatever base colours you choose, feel free to play with colour combinations as well.  You’re going to want to have a well-rounded child so keep in mind to mix it up and have fun.

Blue relaxes and soothes the brain, Red is good for stimulation, Yellows are energetic and happy greens provide peace and tranquil space, brown provides a sense of security, pink leads to more creativity and bubbly personalities. You should avoid black, greys and purples. 


LIGHTING FOR THE SPACE



One of the biggest influences in the psychology of design and space is lighting. Lighting specifications can make or break the look and feel of a room, and it is for this reason designers pay close attention to the balance of natural and artificial light in a plan.

Bright natural light boosts mood and concentration because sunlight helps children produce adequate levels of vitamin D that is needed to prevent undesirable health outcomes such as early puberty and inferior mental planning skills.

Morning sunlight exposure can help prevent delayed bedtimes and circadian rhythm problems. Studies suggest that delayed bedtimes -without opportunities for catch-up sleep- are linked with poor school performance and behaviour problems. Improper lighting at night can also be a hazard for sleep, which is a rising concern for parents with the prevalence of blue light from smartphones for children’s entertainment.


BEDROOM CURATION

.

In a sense, when you define your living space, your living space defines you.

Children that grow up in a healthy familial environment have been shown to display self-conscious behaviours and emotions (shame, guilt, embarrassment, pride) as early as 2 years old. As they grow in their first few years, their psychological view of themselves also develop. 

Studies have revealed that children with positive perceptions of themselves grow to achieve good social and academic capabilities later on in life.

Create different zones for the kids like a reading area, a play zone, a comfortable area for exploration and movement, better and bigger windows and display shelves, a soundproof area for musical instruments and the like. 


PRIVATE SPACE

.

Space privacy is another psychological impact of interior design. An individual requires a healthy degree of privacy, or they might feel discomfort, anger or anxiety. The fundamental goal of achieving privacy through design is to attain symmetry between personal time and social relationships.

The need for privacy is a completely natural part of kids growing older, it comes hand in hand when they slowly learn to be independent.

Partitions, sleeping corners, tents can help you create a different private zone for the kid. 


OVERALL, By solidifying the lessons you want to ingrain in your children while simultaneously integrating that with their personal individuality, you end up creating a self-empowering physical environment. Which will preserve these lessons and memories that grow with your children by using healthy design psychology principles.
