Keep in mind the nature of your child, if they like to play more physical games then keep the space clear for running and jumping, whereas if your little kid is a studious type keep more of story books and other interesting toys for them in their bedroom. You can display paintings of happy animals, birds and flowers to make the room attractive. One can also display children’s own drawings and paintings in their bedroom to give them feelings of importance and belonging to their bedroom.
Try to keep some floor space clear for them to play freely as when their bedroom is congested there will be no place for positive chi to enter the room and your child may end up with boredom and always look dull with lack of energy. Once in a while clear their room and give a thorough cleaning to all the floor and furniture to keep pests and germs away. Carpets and rugs need to be vacuum cleaned regularly to avoid dust mites.
