When a person decides to become a foster parent, they often wonder the best way of setting up a bedroom for foster care. Waiting for the call is tough, and shopping and painting and all the decorating can be a fun way to pass the time. As tempting as it is to go overboard, my biggest advice is not to go overboard. I know how cute everything looks in a store when you’re bored. But who knows if you’ll ever have a placement during the summer who fits in 2t clothing and loves frilly dresses the way you love that adorable sleeveless thing you just saw on Etsy. Go minimal. You can always buy more specific things later when a placement arrives.
If you only have one bedroom devoted to foster care, I would highly suggest a neutral paint color. You might think you are only taking boys, or only taking girls. But I’ve known many a foster parent to change their mind when the bedroom is empty and a little one has nowhere else to go. If you pick a more neutral paint color, it’s easy to personalize the walls with hanging art or wall stickers. My personal favorite color for adaptability is light green.
