Left to their own devices, the kids would decorate your family’s home in a drastically different way than you would. Can’t you just picture the teen idol posters on the wall of your living room or the neon stripes they want to paint on those gorgeous hardwood floors? But that doesn’t mean that kids should be left out of decorating altogether. After all, whether it’s their own bedroom, the family room, or the kitchen, they have to live in the space as well, and it’s nice to make all of the living spaces in the home a reflection of the entire family instead of it only being what Mom and Dad think looks good. Finding the balance of a design that makes both the kids and parents happy isn’t always easy, but these tips can help.
