What Does Your Child's Bedroom Say About YOU?

By Devan McGuinness |

I have admitted before that when it comes to interior design and the magazine-ready looking homes, I fail. I have never really had the knack for what looks great and honestly, since my kids are still young I worry too much about them breaking something I spent so much time and money on.

When it comes to kid bedrooms, I never invested much time. They would destroy anything in less then 2 days and they outgrow tastes quicker than I can keep up. My kids actually all share a bedroom and it’s quite simple. Three beds, a television (yep, one of those parents too) and some toys, books and dressers for their clothes. It’s nothing crazy extravagant by any means, but they love it and the love being together.

I believe you can tell a lot about what type of parent someone is by what the kid rooms look like. Not necessarily the rest of the house because that’s more our taste and usually more generic and conventional, but when it comes to our kids rooms we can have a lot more fun (or not) and they are not usually shown-off to everyone who comes into the house.

What Your Kid's Room Says About You

So Messy You Don't Know Where To Start

Now, you may expect me to say something mean like "a messy room means lazy", but I don't believe that. I think a messy room means you are all too busy having fun outside and the mess is likely contained to the bedroom.

    I think maybe the “grown up” room is meant for a teen? Not that teens don’t break stuff. My hackles were up on the mural slide waiting for a snarky comment, so I’m glad there wasn’t one! It took me waaay too long to finish painting my son’s room. In fact it was supposed to be done before the third trimester, but the paint finally dried a few days before my son started crawling.
