When you are moving house, you have a blank canvas to decorate the whole of your home just as you want it. One particular area that you may want to look at first is your children’s bedrooms. This will help your children feel more included in the move, and will give them something to look forward to, especially if they are involved in the decision making. And yes, that is a valid thing to do since if you involve the kids, they will get acclimatized to the moving process that easier and the relocation will have a lesser impact on them. So whenever you are going to make changes to the kid’s room ask your kid about it.
If your children are old enough then you could ask them what colors they would like in their room, or if there is a specific theme that they want to go with. You may have to direct them slightly if they choose colors that just won’t work well together, but it won’t hurt to involve them in the decision. If they are not sure what to go for, you can show them a color chart, or go to the store so they have a better idea of what is available. Don’t forget to include these things on your house moving checklist. As long as the removal van is about, you can use it to gather all the materials you need and then get them to the new house.
For younger children and babies, the ultimate decision will be yours regarding the way the room is decorated. Softer, pastel colors are usually a good choice here because they can have a calming effect. You may want to buy a few new pieces of furniture, but overall you should be OK with everything that the movers have bought from your last home. Remember, babies need color. Make sure you provide the proper colors so that their imagination can flourish earlier. Something that may feel like an acid trip to you is a great stimulus for a smaller child.
You may want to start decorating as soon as you can after you are done with the house removals. It may be possible to leave some of the larger items of furniture in the storage unit, which will make it much easier when you are painting. When the room has been decorated, and all of their old stuff has been moved back in, your children will be right at home. If you involved them in the process, they will enjoy the fruit of their own labor, so they will not have too much trouble with getting used to the new setting.
