How to Get Your Family Involved in Decorating

Posted by Treetopia in Home Decorating with Treetopia

When it’s time to redecorate your space, don’t undertake the project alone. Ask for help from your family and together, you can transform your house to a place worth coming home to. Here are a few ideas to get your started:

Brainstorm

Create a design plan with your family and figure out the priorities of each member. Knowing what your family wants to incorporate into the design not only helps designate the tasks better, but you’ll be assured of help since everyone will be looking forward to watching their design ideas come to life.

Division of Labor

Don’t try to control every design aspect in your home. Divide the labor accordingly. If your little girl wants to have a play area, assign the decorating ideas to her. Let her be creative and design the area as she pleases. Giving each member of your family a place in the house that they can call their own helps them warm up to the idea of decorating together.

Shopping

Grab a huge shopping cart and go shopping together. By doing so, your family gets a better sense on the wide variety of home décor products out in the market. This helps everyone come up with great and unique ideas for their own rooms. Let them pick out a few pieces that showcase their personality and place these pieces around the house. This way, everyone is represented in the décor of the home.

Treats

In the midst of decorating, prepare fun treats for everyone. Cookies, mini-cakes, and tiny rolls of pigs in a blanket are great snacks to keep everyone’s energy up. If you see your children getting restless, refocus their energy by creating fun games out of their design tasks, like seeing which of you can stick the most glow-in-the-dark stars on your child’s ceiling and walls.

Nothing makes a home feel warmer other than the fun family memories created within it. Decorating your home as a family leaves you and your loved ones with memories to last a lifetime.
