Not only they will liven up the room, but you’ll also feel nostalgic about it when your kids grow up.

One of the ways to have a handy storage place that would be aesthetically pleasing as well as to install a wall-mounted organizer. They have plenty of storage space to keep your kids’ things as well as organize them in a way that is easy on the eyes.

13. Growth chart:
Every parent maintains a growth chart for their children. It has a nostalgic feeling attached to it. You can enhance this experience with a creative twist. Rather than having a traditional growth chart where you mark the height on a particular wall of the room, you can buy a premade fancy plastic chart which you can put up on a wall, mark the heights with glitters, and even have a handprint of the child on the border using water-based paint.
14. Creativity corner:
Children at a young stage are very excited about arts and crafts. To give them an opportunity to explore their imagination, you can assign one corner of the room dedicated to such things. Add a table and desk set, keep the drawers full of charts and colors, and have the craft supplies at hand. This table can also be used as a homework table for the kids. Let the table be as colorful and as childlike as possible so that kids are attracted to it.

The kids’ rooms get very messy and disorganized with their stuff lying around everywhere. To have a solution to this problem, you can add a dresser to the room which will give plenty of space to keep their things as well teach kids to be organized. You can also put up bins to stuff their toys in. To give an additional lovely look to the room, you can decorate the top of the dresser with flower vases or picture frames.
