When it comes to decorating your child's room, you'll want to have something that's fun and whimsical, yet have the space still be a place where you son or daughter can concentrate on doing homework assignments and other productive activities. These tips may help you find the perfect middle ground for your child.

Keep your child's height in mind
When you decorate your child's room, make sure that everything is child-sized. Whether it's storage space or the switch plate, your child should be able to reach everything. HGTV recommended keeping everything at his or her level so he or she can help learn independence through picking out his or her own clothes and toys when he or she want them. This will make your child feel more like he or she have choices to make, even if you get the final say.

Encourage artistic behavior
While few people want their kids to paint on the wall, chalkboard paint makes being openly creative easier for your child. Real Simple magazine suggested painting a large part of your kid's room with chalkboard paint - available at most hardware stores - to keep your child busy and entertained. You can also provide a wide variety of colorful chalks to use, which can help nurture your child's imagination. Try pairing this with fun and colorful decor, like posters, clocks and switch plates, to help give your son or daughter inspiration to go wild and create.

Let your child display his or her favorites
Whether your child loves collecting toy dinosaurs or colorful rocks, it's a good idea to give your boy or girl a space to display his or her prized possessions. This can help your child gain organizational skills while giving you kid a confidence boost to go after his or her dreams. Something simple like an inexpensive metal display cabinet with no glass can make for an easy setup. You could also use a bookshelf with picture books on the lower levels to encourage your child to learn.

Keep colors simple
These days, children may be overwhelmed by the variety of bright colors coming from electronic learning devices, the television and other sources. To combat these, try keeping the room a simple color. A combination of white and light blue is relaxing and calming, while something like yellow or orange may be more stimulating for your child.
