Cluttering the room full of toys or decorations before the foster child arrives can make it feel like they are moving into someone else’s room. So keep it simple at first and then encourage them to choose things to put in their room. This helps the foster child or young person to make the room their own. It is also a good idea to keep the colour scheme warm and neutral to avoid picking a colour that is not to their taste. They are also more likely to take care of the room if they have helped to decorate it.
It’s natural to feel excited and anxious before a child arrives but try not to get too hung up on creating the perfect bedroom for them. Making a foster child’s bedroom a happy place is something that will happen as you get to know each other and develop the space together, why not start by asking them what you can do to make them feel at ease?
