Clothes that no longer fit should be donated, passed to a friend in need, or stored in waterproof storage boxes in a garage or storage space, along with clothes that are out of season. (Make sure if you are storing these clothes to clearly mark outside of boxes for easy identification.) Limit toys and books to those child makes use of daily and weekly. Give away unused toys, or store them in waterproof boxes in a garage or storage space. The more clothes and toys you get rid of, more room you will have for future fashions and fun activities. Feng Shui tips You may have heard or read about Feng Shui, ancient Chinese art of object and furniture placement. Feng Shui explains that each area of a room attracts a different type of energy from other areas. Implementing Feng Shui in your childís bedroom design can maximize effectiveness of furniture and art you are already planning to use. For example, Feng Shui teaches that a bed should be placed in corner of room farthest from door. Your childís head should be at end of bed where door can be easily viewed, and there is no chance of getting startled by an unexpected visitor.
The northern section of your childís room promotes stillness, so this would be an example of an ideal placement for bed. The desk should be placed far from door, in Northeast part of room if possible, since this is Knowledge/Education Sector. This area is also a great place for educational posters, such as letters of alphabet or a picture of Einstein. Select artwork carefully, taking time to notice any hidden messages. Each image gives off a specific vibration, so only choose most positive pictures for walls.
Of all activities your child will do in his or her room - including grooming, relaxing, studying, and playing - in mind that sleep is most important and must be supported by design of room. Take your childís personality into consideration, as well as his or her hobbies and special interests. Still, keep all dťcor in check so that it does not overwhelm or clutter space. And finally, have fun! The energy, love and care you bring to this project will permeate every objectís placement, adding an invisible yet invaluable element to whatever design you choose to implement.
