Design children’s room – HOMA Architects
No matter how busy you are, if you’ve ever sat and listened to your child rambling and chatting with her about her story for a few hours, this article is for you.
Conventional wisdom holds that children’s rooms should be full of color (because children have to be playful). Sometimes the designer even imposes that boys use blue, girls use pink….with the argument that if it’s the opposite: boys use pink or girls use blue will affect the effect. Personality development also has designs that always try to bring the shapes associated with the themes of castles, mountains, etc.
Actually, there is nothing wrong with such a design in the eyes of an adult, there are some designs that are even quite beautiful. But for children, it brings a stale and prescriptive space. Unfortunately, children who have not had enough time to equip themselves with multi-dimensional perspectives, so they automatically consider it a correct convention, will not accept free approaches to space and ideas. . And in character education, education to be aware of your freedom of thought is more important than education of any skill.
Designing a children’s room is extremely easy but also extremely difficult. As parents who are lucky enough to observe their children’s development through games, we are presented with a completely different window into the world of children. In fact, children’s minds are extremely rich and imaginative. Also due to the unconscious but very clear perception of the size of the body, making them feel the world around them is larger and more magical than what adults see.
A blanket covering the parents can become a vast field in the midland. With a curious and discerning eye, even the lint on the blanket turns into rice plants.
A table under the table can be a house, a cellar or a shop depending on the game at the tim
A cloth draped over the top of the curtain turned the curtain into a lovely house
A large bed can turn into a stage or movie theater at any time.
They’re crazy fun to hang on the wall to turn into a calendar, a clock or a picture.
With their imaginations and strong role-playing abilities, kids really don’t care if their room isn’t furnished with cabinets, the theme of the room is the forest or the ocean, or the job orientation. business….even though those things may make a little impression at first, but then all the adult’s efforts on decor are momentarily forgotten and replaced by an incredibly rich fantasy world, covering reality.
And even more amazingly, the children are really “mutants” with superpowers because they used their imaginations to change the world around them to suit the ongoing story. A room that was a tiny bird’s nest suddenly turned into a very busy and bustling airport, then suddenly turned into a vast prairie under the stars, or an ancient forest. full of dinosaurs lurking. With such supernatural imagination, no adult design can keep up.
Therefore, we want to approach the problem of designing children’s rooms with a completely different philosophy. As children who refuse to grow up, we find that instead of coming up with a predefined design, we simply come up with preparatory premises that support the imagination.
To turn a room into a secret tunnel, all it takes is a few cardboard boxes and wooden boxes
To turn a room into a prairie, simply stretch a rope across the room and squeeze a tent roof with a blanket.
To turn a room into an ocean just need something to represent the boat.
So the new philosophy of space for children is the emptiness and customization of space. The furniture does not have to have a fixed role but can be multi-functional, light to be moved by the child. Just like a drawing board that can be erased and redrawn many times, a room is also a type of drawing board, but in the 3D world, it can be erased and redrawn countless times. With such a magic room, new parents can really grant a visa to the world of children, actively participate in games and accompany their child’s development.
Therefore, it can be affirmed that the space for children is the most important space in the house, and needs to be designed. That design not only brings convenience but will greatly affect the quality of character education for children. That design needs to be highly personal, respecting each child’s personality, but sociable enough for children to learn to share with those around them.
