Interior design helps you give meaning to your space, it reflects your preferences, interests and lifestyle – especially in children’s spaces. Research has shown that children with positive self-concept develop better social and academic skills later in life. To help develop this in your children, make sure there is a place in their room (study, kitchen or common room) where they can indulge in their hobbies. A strong sense of identity is crucial to your child’s development and promotes good self-esteem and individuality. This sense of self can be encouraged by creating a space for them to display their awards and trophies or display their treasures, and even using wall space to display their art.
